I just started using this website a week ago today and have lost 7.5 pounds thus far. I read that losing more than 2 pounds a week is bad for your health and would like to know if I should be concerned. I feel great. Actually, I feel better than I have in a while. I am just concerned about the rate at which I am shedding pounds.
Am I dropping pounds too quickly? How much weight should I lose a week? What are the consequences for losing weight at this rate?
The same thing happened to me too. I started at 217 to 208 in 7 days and then gained a little back and started on the real bouncing around the slowly descending line that has been the last 11 weeks. I have been working hard at it and am right at an average of 2 lbs / week. So you are good.....
You can lose a lot of water weight when you first start out. It should settle down soon. Just make sure you are eating enough for your activity level and you should be fine. :) Losing a bunch at first is sure a great incentive to keep going!
