during my first week on SP program i lost 2.6kg. i even lost 1cm off my waist and hips.
i was eating properly (meeting my daily intakes) and exercising. In total to date (its been 12 days) i have lost 4.1kg.
my theory behind the rapid drop in weight is that i was dormant for 4months with an injury and out of emotions eating food high in calories and sodium. i figure alot is water weight.
i wont sit here and say that it is healthy or common to lose this amount of weight so quickly, but from my own experience, when you first start this kind of program weight falls off quickly for the first couple of weeks.
i started my journey at 88kg (193.6 pounds) with 23kg (50.6pounds) to lose.
please i dont want any one thinking i am aiming for these numbers. each day i weigh my self i expect the scales to go up (daily fluctuations) but i know that these numbers will drop very soon.
i hope this helped
u can always improve on what you did yesterday today, what you do today can be improved tomorrow... SO DONT GET DISCOURAGED
I doubt it is possible to lose 3kg (6.6lbs) of fat in one week. Chances are it would be water weight instead. Healthy weight loss is considered 1-2 pounds per week, so far less than 3kg. Every pound of fat is about 3500 calories, so 6.6 pounds is over 20,000 calories. Much more likely that a change that big is not fat loss but water or random daily fluctuations.

That depends on your current weight, but realistically, that's not a safe amount of weight to lose. An average, safe weight loss per week is 1-2 pounds, depending on your size. If you have more than 100 pounds to lose, it might be possible, if unlikely, but if you have less than that, it's going to be dangerous to even try.
Skip fast weight loss. Aim for slow and steady, and take care of your body. It took time to put the weight on, it will take time to take it off.
