Default 10 Lb Loss in 9 days!!

I know it's normal to have a big loss when you first start a weight loss program. But 10 lbs? It seems like a lot to me. I'm not complaining of course.
But I just wonder how many of you have lost 10 lbs or more in such a short time, when you first started. Is it pretty normal for us bigger girls?

I welcome the loss and I hope I continue to lose fast (not real fast) because I've always been a slow loser.

I dont mean to but in but i have a question if noone minds me posting it here it is on the same subject...i have been dieting for a couple of months and the last two weeks have been very small losses ( 1/2 lb one week and 1.5 lbs the other week) because of that TOM. My weigh in isnt until friday ( officially) but i hopped on the scale this morning and it says im down 5 lbs from what i weighed last week ( 306) is that possible after your TOM is over cause i have been pretty consistent with 2 lb losses every week except for the last 2 weeks because of TOM not that i wouldnt be happy with 5 lbs but i cant officially count it until friday so i hope it holds true but would this be unusual the week after TOM?

thanks for letting me post
thank you
Heather

Well, yeah. I think that's pretty normal. I typically retain water during TOM. Then after TOM is over, Whoosh the water is gone and I lose a few pounds. One thing that helps is drinking water with lemon juice squeezed in the water.

Pretty normal for us bigger girls to lose a lot in the first couple of months...
Looking back at my WL journal I lost 9 pounds my first week and 14 by the end of week 2. The first 3 months were awesome weight loss months, month 4 &5 slowed down quite a bit, then it picked back up for a few months...I finally tapered off to 1-2 pounds a week by the 8th month.

Girl... I lost 16 lbs in 13 days. Your first month is usually (but not always) a good month because if you are larger (like I was) you carry a LOT of excess fluid. So the first couple of weeks is getting rid of the excess that you are carrying. It's always a GREAT way to start a weight loss journey!
