Considering 1-2 pounds per week is normal and fantastic, that is tops 8 pounds a months, so far your weight loss is pretty darn fast. What the posters are saying is that the longer it goes on, you really might see it slow down. Maybe youll start losing 8 pounds a month, or even 4. It isnt a race though, theyre correct. Take each loss as a huge step, no matter how small.
