Default Losing Weight Faster Than I Thought Possible

I started Fitday and my diet/excercise routine on 1/6 and weighed in at 261. This morning I weighed 248.4. I am not complaining but it seems too fast and I really hope I can sustain it.

Anyone else take off a big chunk of weight when they first started?

If you have plenty of weight to lose (you and me both) and you are strict on restricting your intake and excersizing it's quite possible to lose quite a lot inthe first couple of weeks. I'm down 10.5 since the 9th, so about the same weight loss. You will probably find that the rate will drop considerably next week and hopefully you'll be able to lose 1-2 pounds over time. It's even easier to have a big initial loss if you go on a low carb diet. Keep up the good work and you'll do well.

I started fitday, diet, and exercise on 1/3 and was 415.8 and have gone to the gym 6 days a week doing cardio for an 1 hour to 1:30 hours. This morning I weighed 383.4.

I am a little surprised how much weight I have been able to lose but hope that I am able to continue to lose weight as I diet and exercise, even if it not in big cunks like it has been so far.

That is really awesome! Impressive..... Would you check in from time to time so I can see how you are doing? It seems like you are really committed and it would be fun to track a good success story.

In my first day of weight loss, I weighed in at 398. I am now down to 391. I think 7 pounds, a pound a day, is great for my first week. But I know it's going to slow down after a while and I'm ok with that. My doctor said it was ok as long as I was still eating healthy and not over exercising. This is my first day of FitDay.

All of you guys are an inspiration. I have been at it since November 6 and down 30, 310-280. It has slowed down but if we can drop 1-2 pounds a week after those first few weeks of higher losses, we are doing great.
You guys keep at it and stay strong.

Have you been working out as well? How many carbs do you eat?

BTW- My weight loss has curtailed quite a bit. Only two pounds in the past week.

I started at 251 pounds on 1/7, and as of last friday was down to 232. (1/29)
The first ~6-8 pounds or so are probably water, but it still counts.
This is basically on a low-carb diet with cardio and weight training 5 days a week.
(Goal weight is 220 pounds by 3/28, which seems very doable at this rate.)
