Hi, 8 pounds is a great start. With SB I find the weight comes off in chunks with plateaus between, so hold on for the next jump (down
) on the scale!
It's really hard to do, but I think this works best if you consider how you feel (have you lost cravings? felt better in your clothes, had more energy etc.) than if you use the scale as the main measure of success. In my limited experience (10 weeks maybe?) I find SB program has a lot of weight plateaus.
I say this in part to remind myself because I just got back from a week of vacation and I was VERY dedicated to the program in spite of the obstacles and temptations, yet I only lost one pound. I felt really disappointed. Then I put on a shirt I used to wear over a tank top because it was 4" short of buttoning at my hips, and it fit with room to spare. That has to be more significant than a number on a scale.
Keep going, don't give up!
