Welcome Lass,

Glad you found us! 2 pounds a week is a good goal, but most of us have found that there will be weeks when it is 1lb and even a few when we don't lose any at all even though we are doing everything right . So don't get discouraged when things slow down. Just stick with the plan and you will see your dream come true.

BTW the excess skin thing can be a problem for some - I'll be honest. But by losing the pounds slowly, it gives your skin time to adjust to the new slimmer you - another benefit of the slow and steady plan. I suggest you start now with lots of skin lotion to keep your skin nice and healthy. Lotions that have Q10 and other ingredients promising "skin firming" do help, but I wouldn't expect overnight miracles - it you know what I mean
