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! :)

Hello everyone, just started SparkPeople and a new nutrition plan last week. Havnt lost my first pound yet, i've been doing rather good on my plan and drinking lots of water. How long did it take you to lose your first pound?
