a little bit confused about my 5 pound loss?
I'd like to believe that it's a wonderful thing that I lost 5/6 pounds since April 12th, the day I bought a scale. I weighed in at 172ish on the first day. After buying the scale I continued trying to eat well/eat very little every day, but would end up binging after school. It wasn't until one week after I bought the scale that I started eating really well/making sure I was feeling satisfied all the time. I didn't indulge or give in to anything because that simply doesn't work for me. I walked around a lot (since the 19th) and the pounds have just seem to come off... fast?
I haven't been starving myself. Just tons and tons of veggies and some fruits. I eat whole wheat pasta, a little bit of rice, and had some pizza today. I definately am eating less calories than before. I'd say around 1400-1500? And I knOW that I'm not losing because of restricting carbs. I've also been drinking lots of wateR. I was never a pop addict or anything, so I know it's not because of that.
Of course , the 165 pounds is what the scale reads when I wake up in the morning. But still, I'm not really understanding because I thought you are suppose to lose 2 pounds a week at the most? The loss is of course very motivating. It makes me want to keep doing what I do because it's working somehow.
But can someone explain? 5 pounds in 10 days? And I didn't even start eating/exercising well till the past Thursday. (About 4 pounds came off in the last couple days)
**I also find it weird because I've been trying to lose a couple pounds here and there ever since I was like 13 and I've never ever been successful.. not even with like 2 pounds. I gotta say that I wasn't overweight then though, and I was fairly active with sports at that age.**
