Unfortunately every body is different. How are you feeling with the changes you have made so far? Are you feeling better or just frustrated. SP recommends weighing yourself once a week to account for daily fluctuations that our bodies naturally go through. It may take a couple of weeks to really see the progress you are wanting on the schedule however how you feel may be a better indicator and help motivate you until the scale starts moving.
It's tough to say just how long it will take but if you are taking in less calories than you are burning in a day -- the pounds WILL come off! After losing almost 50 pounds in seven month, I've been on a plateau for 7 months. This has become my motto as well!! Do not let frustration win! Keep tracking, keep moving and keep believing! The pounds have no choice but to leave!! Hang in there!

Hi I'm Sue, and I've been at this only about 2 full days, I have been burning an average of 60 cal. per day and I'm eating my daily amount of cals. How lond will it take me to lose a pound?? maybe I'm a little impatient but I have been fighting to get rid of mymidsection and muffin top for going on 2 years now, I had lost 18 pounds 2 years ago and gained it back after a fire forced me out of my normal environment, the stress built up and boom the weight went back on. I need some encouragement in losing the weight again so I can fit back into my clothes. I know there are probably a lot more people with worse weight problems then me but I have never been this heavy and being short and having this midsection is quite sufforcating. Please send me some encouraging words.
