Really? I have been tracking and working out for months and all I have lost is 2 pounds. You are doing well. Stop and re-evaluate you goals and how you want to get there

Congratulations you lost 4 pounds - that's more than normal. Do you have a lot to lose? This may be water plus weight so please do not get discourage if a bit finds you, 1/2 to 2 is healthy loss for the long term.

As the others said, you are doing fine. Keep in your calorie range and eat foods with good nutrition to stay there. At 1300 calories, you can eat well and always feel full ... but you CANNOT waste calories on empty snacks and do that, so keep that in mind. If you even lose a pound a week you're doing great. If you plateau for two weeks, don't worry, that happens. Just stay the course and view it as a long term journey. You won't get there in two weeks.

You have to give yourself more than a week to lose weight.

Once you lose the weight you want, you'll have to continue to eat right and exercise to maintain that weight.

I'm in maintenance mode now and it's just like losing (I get to eat a little more) because I still track my food and exercise.

I've lost quickly in the past and guess what? I gained it back. Take your time to lose because it gives your body and your brain time to adjust to the change. If you lose too quickly your body won't adjust and you won't have learned the lessons for healthy weight loss that doesn't come back!

I'm assuming you want to keep the weight off once you lose it.

Follow SP guidelines and you will get to where you want to be. You can achieve a healthy weight and lifestyle. It takes time.

Congratulations you are lossing what is within safe parameters.. Remember not to loss weight too fast- I hated plastic surgery to have access skin removed.. People whom never have had it don't really know what hell I went through 3 months being off work and absolutely no heavy lifting at home or the gym.. I also needed someone to help me in and out of bed..

Giving yourself good time ensure skin can ease back where it is stretched from if even possible.. Going gangho makes skin give up and sag faster..

Am I understanding you correctly? That you have been consuming 1300 calories daily for one week and lost 4 pounds? A healthy weight loss is about 1/2 to 2 pounds weekly.

I've cut a lot of alcohol from my life and stayed under 1300 calories for one week, yet can't lose more than 4 pounds. Anyone else have this problem and what worked for you?
