This is a life changing journey.... you are doing great keep up the good work
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.”
I think 1.5 lbs sounds good. I remember on many other diets I would lose weight quickly in the beginning. There was never any physical change though. I think it was probably water loss (dehydration) from cutting back on so much food. However, you should really feel good if you are meeting your drinking water goals, 'cause then you know what you lost isn't just water! Good luck.
1.5 is great! During my time on SP, I've probably averaged a pound a week, which means I've have weeks with as little as .2 lb loss. Fortunately, though, I'm not gaining pounds either. So, slow and steady. Don't focus on the number, focus on the fact that you lost!

Look at the other side..you could have gained a pound and a half.

Don't despair! Actually, you are right on track for what Sparks suggests. If you lose too much too quickly, you're more apt to find them again. Slow and constant gives you a chance to transform your fat to muscle. Keep in mind that muscle weighs more. Also, take your body meaurements~you may find that your scale isn't showing a true picture of all that you lost! Inches can be dramatic!! Best of luck!!
Everyone seems normal, until you get to know them!
