I am in full agreement with everyone who has posted here!
I never lost at the 1-2 pounds a week rate. I am almost 3 years into this and I have almost reached a goal of 50 pounds!
I just have what works for me. Eat as few processed foods as you can. Eat REAL FOOD. Eat at home, restaurants are scary places! I limited my sodium intake to less than 2000 mg per day and tried for a fiber intake of 30 grams per day or more.
I didn't over exercise, it discouraged me if I didn't see results. I didn't have a medical reason to lose the weight fast, so I just tried to lose it at the rate that works for me, that has been about 1-2 pounds a month when I was heavier, and about a half pound a month now that i have only 3 pounds to go. I also have to remember that the body's weight fluctuates throughout the day/week/month. Because of this, I weigh and record my weight daily. And I pay no mind to the "up's" unless they stay up. So my chart is a zig zag between about 3-3.5 pounds that steadily goes downward.
You are going to do just fine.
