1kg (2lb) in two weeks - should I be happy? I dunno, think I shed faster the first time around. But 1kg is better than no kg I try to tell myself.
Hope everyone will have a lovely weekend, spring is teasing us with it's on and of presence. If sunny enough me and Diego will enjoy the warmth on the porch swing :)

I think that's excellent! 1 lb/week is 50 lbs. a year!

I agree with the "excellent" comment. When I lost my weight (in my 60's so lower metabolism), it worked out to about 3/4 lb. per week. Now, the keeping it off, that's the ultimate goal! :smile:

That is great - you just have to stick with it and it does take a bit longer as you get older. Maybe time to up the exercise a bit? Let us know how you get on this week.

I average 0.42 pounds a week so, yes, you should be happy!

2 kg (4 lb) in one week = happy. That is 3kg (alb) over three weeks. Jubilation. Even though I cheated a bit (the wine bit). I weighted in yesterday but had to re do it today, just to make sure the numbers on the scale was correct. I do understand that this kind of shedding won't happen every week (although the first time around I dropped in a good pace), but it does make me determined and focused even though some days is very hard. Me focused? HAHAHAHA!!!
Grey overcast with rain in the air, we are going to great and longtime friends at the other side of town for dinner and I don't have to cook :grin:
