Default Is this too much in one week?

It appears that I have lost 2.5 lbs this past week. I've never lost this much in a week before, and I'm wondering if that is a reasonable amount or too much. My goal was 1.5 lbs a week.

If it's a one time thing, don't sweat it! I've lost upwards of 4lbs in a week. Usually after a long plateau! If it's something that's happening constantly, then their may be an underlying issue!

I don't think 2.5 pounds is too much. If it was happening week after week I might up the cals a bit. 1-2 pounds a week is considered a healthy loss.

All of those places that give estimates on how to get to lose so and so pounds per week are only based on just that - estimates. There is no way at all to know for sure just how your body will react. In fact you can do the same exact thing that led you to your 2.5 lb weight loss for the next 5 weeks and get 5 entirely different results.

You're doing just great! Keep up the good work.

I once lost 4 pounds in a week, after not having lost anything for three weeks. So, it does happen.

Of the many things to worry about, I'd say this isn't a big one.

Thanks for the help. Maybe it was so much because my body was in shock - going from zero exercise and 2000+ cals a day to 1400-1600 cals and 90 min of exercise.
At least now I know it's normal to have bigger losses once in a while.
