Unfortunately it's totally normal to plateau in weeks 3 (and four). And when weight loss resumes it will likely be the one pound a week pace like other diets - the first few weeks are great for motivation but most of the rapid loss is water (stored in our bodies with the carbohydrate) - and when your body settles into the low carb approach that water is gone and now regular weight loss (fat loss) occurs, but at a rate similar to most other diets for most people (so a pound or two per week, higher numbers usually for heavier people, lower numbers for smaller people like you).

Stay the course!
