This is my first time losing weight, so I don't have anything to compare it to. But it is fairly predictable.
From 183lbs-150lbs, I lost 1-2lbs every week except the week before my TOM in which I lost around .5lbs.
At 150, I plateaued for about a month. Hovering between 151 and 149. It stressed the heck out of me, but now looking back, I think that was a very vital time in this journey. It was kind of my make it or break it moment. I continued on the lifestyle, staying more on plan than ever, even without the reward on the scale every week.
Then I started losing again, but it's been in a totally different, but predictable pattern ever since. From 149-now, I will lose AT MOST 1-1.5lbs in the three weeks between my TOM. I won't lose anything the week before I start. Really I just bounce around within those same 2lbs, but I might inch down a bit in those few weeks. Then I start my TOM, and bam, lose at least 3lbs over a few days. This last month, I went from consistantly seeing 139-140 to consistantly seeing 135-136.
Success is a journey, not a destination
