What was your average loss when you started low carb and when did it start to slow down?

Weight loss will slow down so don't be upset if you don't lose 7 pounds next week!

Tomorrow is my 1 week weigh in so I will update you guys on my first week loss :)

It seems the more weight you have to lose, the quicker you seem to lose it. I was losing 10-12 lbs a month when I was doing Induction. I still keep my carbs quite low...between 25-30. I mainly added occasional nuts, berries & yogurt.

Congratulations on your loss!!!:carrot:

I've completed exactly 2 weeks (today is day 15 for me) and I've lost 7 lbs. You lost that in one week? wow! Good for you!!!

yeah but dont be discouraged ebplus i outweigh you by about 30 pounds an generally i think the more weight you have to lose the inital loses are larger.

I think it does come off faster the more you have to lose. I cant remember exactly but I lost about 10lbs the first two weeks then It slowed down to about 2lbs a week.

ebplus3, Congrats on your first 2 weeks down!

Thank you! At first I was a little discouraged but I'm going to stick with it and see what happens.
