    OP here: sorry had technical difficulties so had to finish basically I've been doing this for 1 week and haven't seen any progress. I realize its probably too soon or I have unrealistic expectations but when will I see results? Thanks for your answers! Oh and do you have any suggestions.

  • I started weight watchers (I didn't join and pay $, I do it for free with resources I found online) and I have lost 6 lbs since the first of the month. Average/healthy weight loss is 1-2 lbs per week.

    Maybe try looking up the 400 calorie diet that Rachel Ray has been promoting? Basis is to eat 4 meals a day that are 400 calories each. Everyone seems to be talking about it. I'm sure you could find the info on her website.

  • How are you feeling? Are you sleeping better? Do you have more energy?

    Are you eating a variety of truly health foods? Are you exercising?

  • initially you should see a change, and then it should slow down and become more even.

    I started a new lifestyle and within 2 weeks lost about 15 pounds - now though its about a pound or two a week. its been a few months since I changed

  • I started back on weight watchers on 1/4. The first week you usually see a big loss (mostly water, etc.), after that, healthy weight loss is no more than 2 pounds per week. I lost 6.5 pounds the first week and 2 pounds the second.

  • I should add that I am also working out at the gym 3-4 times per week.
