Welcome Jill!! Your weight loss to date is wonderful. If I read you right, you have been doing low carb since March 21 and now, 6 wks. later, you have lost 14 lbs. which averages to more than 2 lbs. per week. That is considered a good rate to lose.

It is 100% predictable that people lose a big amount of lbs. in the first couple of weeks. A lot of those losses are fluid. The kidneys dump a bunch of water as they become adapted to low carb. As time goes on, you will likely begin to lose at a more normal pace of about 1-2 lbs. per week. AND it is good to remember that weight loss is never going to be linear. There will be ups and downs on your journey.

Hang in there and learn what carbs are hidden and how to eat a clean and healthy diet. It is a learning process for everyone in the beginning. Join us on the main board!!
