I have set my goals at 2 lb/week, and I have been here since 12/27 (so that's four weeks as of tomorrow). I have always been 100% honest about what I log(both food and exercise), and have tried to eat back exercise calories, if I fail to hit the full mark, I am only leaving behind maybe 100~150 cals. So it seems like I am losing faster than 2 lb/week. Mind you, I am NOT complaining, I'm thrilled, but I wonder why? I'm not exercising more than about 3xweek (and then about an hour each time), do you know why the progress is so accelerated in the beginning? I had already lost seven pounds in the first week. That seems FAST. I don't want to hit a plateau, or go into the depressed metabolism state ("starvation mode") Do you think it's alright?
Believe me, I am HAPPY!!!!! about the loss, but I want to do it smart-
Even my DH commented - Isn't it supposed to be 2 lb/week? Do you want to blow away?
(I was secretly thrilled to hear that, :blushing:
