Hi! I'm not sure what you are asking in the first part of your post but yes large losses in week one are mostly down to fluids. I think it would be pretty much impossible to lose the amounts we sometimes see around here if it was all fat.

I lost 8.5 the first week, but I think that's because I ate before the first weigh in and haven't eaten after lunch on consequent weigh ins..
I lost 1 the second week but put that down to 4 days on pain killers
the 3rd week I again lost 8.5...
I have since lost 8.5 and 9 on occasion..

The first week is often a significant loss for people, but it soon evens out to a healthy, lower-number by the second or following weeks. I guess a lot of it is your body reacting positively to a significant lifestyle change (but also, I'm more likely to be extra good week one, so always experience better losses, even after a restart!)

I can't see how my first week loss couldn't have something to do with water weight. It was so extreme, water must have played a significant part. That doesn't mean it applies to everyone though. We are all different.

Yes, after a while, you either stay the same (STS) or have a small gain!

After that you are grateful for ANY loss believe me lol
