Default only lost 2lbs in the first week?! that normal?

im kind of disheartened that it seems ive only lost 2lbs in the first week of my weight loss programme? (well unless ive lost anymore today, which i doubt)
ive been following my eating regime and drinking plenty of water. i know when ive done weight-watchers in the past i lost about 5-7lbs in my first week. im really confused to why ive only lost 2lbs any advice or help as to why this has happened?

probably didnt lose as much water weight as you did with weight watchers. if youre losing alot more then 2lbs a week its most likely water and muscle and not fat. sounds like you lost fat this time

I lost 2 lbs my first week and 5 the next. Points plus is different but I really like it. On the old plan I lost 7 the first week and none the second.

I lost 2lbs this week too. It seems to be pretty normal. Some diets you get a big loss in the first week but it's almost exclusively water weight.

"only" 2 pounds?

You still lost! That's wonderful! Be patient with your body; weight loss isn't a race.

Being impatient and trying to lose faster is just a recipe for disaster

When I started up my weight loss journey again in May at 192 pounds after dropping 8 in December 2010, I lost at a rate of around 1.8 or 1.9 pounds a week (I forget exactly, I did the math not too long ago) and I got to my goal weight in approximately seven months.

Seven months to drop that much weight isn't long at all. 2 pounds here and there adds up. If you focus on the immediate and celebrate each time you lose a pound rather than getting upset that you haven't lost more, your weight loss journey will feel so much shorter than it really is.

Because I focused on one pound at a time it seemed like my goal creeped up on me! Time had flew by and I was there already!

yeah your right. ive given myself 1year to do it so thats still 357 days, 50 weeks. got plenty of time to lose it. i think because ive got so much fat on me i cant see the inches coming off. i mean is it possible to lose 14" off belly, 5" off bust, 7" off hips and 6" off thighs?

Keep going hun! You lost 2lbs, that's great, plus its more motivating that no loss at all. I'm in the same sort of starting position as you & I'm wanting to lose similar weight. Its a long road but as long as the numbers keeping coming down in the right direction we should be happy.
