Thanks for your good comments. Yes, weight can be gained quickly. I know because I can gain 10 lbs in one week as a nervous eater. I've done it in the past.
I've learned that the quick weight is what I call surface weight can also come off very quickly. This is why when folks start a weight loss program they will sometimes lose 5, 10, 15 or 20 lbs very quickly.
But there is also what I call the Hard-Core weight which is the fat that has been stored over time. This requires the body to work extra hard at getting it off. This is the fat we all are trying to get off that frustrates us at times the most when we see a 1 lb loss or hit plateau. The body is still working but it takes some time getting it off.
