You may want to post this question in the Daily thread, you will get more responses there
Two things offhand to remember though:
- Week 4/5 can often be a "slowdown week", and how quickly you lose can be greatly affected by how MUCH you have to lose and your body type.
- Men lose at a TOTALLY different rate than women, so you cannot compare his losses to yours. Our bodies are like apples and oranges.
