It's completely do-able!
2 lbs a week is fabulous! Don't let that get you down!!!
It's gotta feel good when other people notice you are losing :-)
Sounds like you are doing great! Just a word of caution - while I'm no expert on this plan by any means, nor have I been on it long...I've read tons of posts and threads on various forum sites where people get stuck into a plateau with not losing when they try to hard to pick different aspects of different plans to suit their needs/wants. If it's working for you that's fantastic! :-) It's easier to get too many calories or carbs or what have you when you are mixing and matching plans.
Awesome and sounds delicious!!! Can't wait to hear what you lost the first week!!!!
