I am four weeks into kmy weight loss program. After two weeks of slight gains, I am averaging on the low end of an reasonable weight loss, a little over 1/2 pounds a week.
Hey I’ll take it, but…
I guess I was hoping for a quicker weight loss boost in the beginning (first month) considering that I am so over weight with some basic changes like no soda, no candy (vending machine snacks), and more fruits and veggies making a bigger weight impact.
I had a little excitement my second week with a five pound loss result, but most of that has been gained back.
The truth is that I have not been exercising much yet on my program and I am far from perfect with filling out all of my points.
All this means is that I need to step it up.
At first glance I thought that a 2.5 pound weight loss in a month was small potatoes, but now that I think about it it is not.
If someone told me that 2 years ago, I would lose 1/2 pound a week on average for 100 weeks, I would have been psyched.
About two years ago, was weigh under 220, so a 1/2 pound weight loss could have meant that I would have been at or near my goal weight.
Of course I did not lose 1/2 a week. I actually gains about 15 pounds in the last two years, which is where I am at today.
