NSKYLINE115,

It really does vary from person to person. While a safe weekly weight loss would be 1-2 pound per week, there will be weeks you don't lose. There will even be weeks you gain ! And that doesn't mean you're doing anything wrong. The weight doesn't magically drop off the minute we decide we need to lose. It really could take 6-8 WEEKS of healthy eating and regular exercise before a person sees a change in the scale. And that too is perfectly normal.

Someone who is morbidly obese is most likely to see a quick initial loss in the first couple of weeks. Someone with less to lose will find they might not lose 1-2 pounds per week. they might only lose a half a pound or even one pound a month.

As I have told members in past, you didn't gain the weight overnight, it's not coming off overnight.

It totally depends on a ton of different things. Hormones. How you ate before. Exercise. Stress.

Keep pushing; it'll happen! :)
