Of course it's possible. Weightloss depends on lots of things: how much you need to lose, age, medical conditions, drugs, your activity level, whether you have been dieting before, time of the month, stress levels, name it. I loss of 2 pounds a week is average when starting out.

You can definitely lose 6 lbs your first week - much of it will be water weight. But, it still counts ;)

I averaged 1.71 lbs. per week. So, do it NOW - don't wait until you are an old chickie like me :yes:

Fast losses are common, especially if you change your diet from carb heavy to protein heavy. It's a nice boost, but don't be disappointed if next week is a small loss, or some people even find they'll have a small gain.

Even with messing around the last 5 months or so I've averaged 1.48 pounds per week. Of course it means more when I say that it's for the last 78 weeks. :)

I've lost an average of 3.32 lbs a week over my 8+ month journey so far.

I have averaged 1.75 lbs per week (hey, that's pretty good!). I also lost very quickly at first (14 lbs in the first 4 weeks) and then leveled off to a very respectable 1.5-2 lbs most weeks.

You're doing great! Don't stop!

Peace, Heather

When I'm actually actively watching what I eat and exercising I can drop 2-3 lbs. But lately with my stress eating I've been doing horribly and consider it a blessing to not gain.
