Default Big Loss Without Much to Lose?

Just curious if there are any IP dieters out there that have seen big losses (other than week 1) when you are within 10-20 pounds from your goal? Just trying to manage expectations and possibly find more motivation since mine is waning . . . .

I think it depends on alot of things. # 1 your age, are you post-menopause? #2 Do you take Thyroid meds? and I believe some anti-depressents slow loss. If you are young and med-free, you have a good chance of losing quite regular. Good Luck

Weight loss close to goal is just plain hard- and by hard I mean that it requires patience (which is the hardest thing of all!). Just wait it out- if you only lose 3 pounds this month, then you're 3 pounds closer to goal.

Personally, I think that the closer you get to goal the slower the losses are going to be. That said, I do believe that with IP, you will still see losses. I am getting to the point where I can also say I am within 10-15 pounds and I am prepared for the inevitable slow down.

Even my coach said that the reason I am not seeing the "average 3-5 pound" losses is because I didn't have that much to lose to begin with. The more you have to lose, the greater your losses.

JennyDoodle - have you had your BMI and body fat % done lately? I know you workout and that is why I ask. I disregarded the IP exercise restriction for the most part and do get concerned that I am burning muscle mass at times so I find myself wanting to increase my cals to 1200 and increase my protein closer to 1 lb / lb of body weight. I vary this with the lower cal / protein on non workout days. So far, I have seen a decline in body fat, which means I am preserving (if not building) muscle mass. Right?! I find this whole issue a bit touchy and confusing . . .
