    I lost 6.4 pounds this week. I used to think that was fantastic. Today I though to myself, "I didn't eat enough this week".

    You'll be o.k. You can poop / pee off 6.4 pounds overnight, easy. Don't sweat it. As long as you're losing, on average, you're o.k.

    I don't go by weekly weight loss, because this varies week by week.
    But when I was obese around May last year, I went to see the nurse who told me that I was on the critical level for developing diabetes. She then put me on a weight loss program, which is different to dieting, It involves a total change of eating habits, along with exercise, starting with daily floor exercises (sit-ups, mainly), then she recommended that I attend a gym, and the induction I received was mainly on the elliptical cross-training machine, which I have worked up to a forty-minute fat-burning session. This is crushingly tedious, but help with a television tuned into a music channel along with a large dose of determination and perseverance gets me to complete the course at every session (I train alone, with a surveillance camera linking the gym to Reception). Finally, in addition to home floor exercises, gym workouts and proper eating habits, I now go out running twice a week.

    After nine months, I have lost three stone, and still losing. I still have a way to go before my body mass index reaches its ideal level, but the nurse believes that I will get there.

    I've lost 7 pounds over the past three weeks by counting calories and shooting for around 2000 calories a day (more on gym days, less on days off). My plan is to do this for 10 weeks and see where I end up.

    I used to have washboard abs. I gained 5 pounds and they're gone. I'm just trying to lose that, so I appreciate how much of a struggle losing tens of pounds must be.

    I once lost a few stones, but they were kidney stones I believe....

    Since starting my road to health and fitness, Jan 4, 2010, I've lost 30lbs as of today, April 3rd. I've got another 50lbs to go but I plan on getting that done just in time before the new year 2011. My motivation was a health check in Dec 09 where I was advised I was pre-diabetic too. That and my beautiful husband deserves to have some eye candy too at home icon_smile.gif

    I used to get on the scale everyday, that is not a good idea, my weight would go up and down by a pound or two, so it was elation one day, disappointment the next, and so on.. doesn't work that way I learned and doesn't help. Now my weigh ins are weekly. My diet has changed and I am hitting the gym at least 2x a week, trying for 3-4x a week.

    I've lost about 10 pounds since I restarted my most recent program with around 15% bodyfat. That's around fifty pounds of difference from when I weighed my most several years ago.
    I've plateaued so I'll probably bump my caloric intake to maintenance and hit the gym really hard.

    My motivation was me! I am starting a new career this year which requires a huge amount of energy. I also would like to find a bf. Cute chasers are fine, but I want something long-term.

    .6 is not enough to be concerned with. Go take a shit and piss then you'll be ~2 lbs lighter.

    Trust me, it works. I weigh before & after my "morning constitution" every day. icon_lol.gif

    Edit: And this week's update, I lost 2 lbs.

    I lost 4.6 pounds this week. for a total of 24.2 since 2/20. WW keeps sending me messages saying I am losing too quickly. Is 3 pounds a week on average too much?

    3 pounds a week average seems a little high but given your body compositions if you are exercising and not starving yourself it should be completely fine

    I'm exercising and not starving myself. This week, though, I think I'll use the activity points instead of holding onto them.

    Seems like you've struck a decent compromise between the dangerously fast weight loss you were seeking before and the more conservative weight loss that WW recommends. I'm glad you've found a system that works for you.

    I think whatever you did last week is working perfectly. 2.2 pounds is a completely normal amount of weightloss for one week.

    I have. Goal doesn't seem so far away when you're choosing the right path.

    Ontheway, it's good to see this change in attitude and your efforts rather than going for quick fixes. Keep up the good work. You're doing fine.

    I've lost 12.5 pounds in the last 2 months.
    3 pounds this week. I've concentrated on cutting
    out all sodas. Limiting my sugars, and moderate
    exercise.
