Great idea to lurk on the boards in preparation for reaching goal - and even better to join in openly!
We're all different, but I lost the weight fairly steadily - mostly before I found SP. I have yo-yo dieted throughout my adult life and have always had more of a problem in maintaining than losing. In fact, I've never maintained before now.
As I have got older the problem with fast weight loss is the effect on my skin which is no longer as elastic as it was. Losing too quickly can leave skin on the body that is too loose or a bit saggy. Going at a slower pace seems to give the skin time to adjust more. My skin is improving now but it has taken quite a while.
Let us know how you go on.
2lb a week seems sensible to me and lets the metabolism adjust as well as the skin.
