Oh yes, check my signature. I lost lots of weight Oct 09 to Feb 10 then gained most of it back in 3 months!

My advice is definitely to keep at it. Take one day at a time, your only goal to be make it through that day. If you slip up ignore it and keep on going. I've started, restarted and slipped so many times now. The only difference between now and those other times is my persistence and determination to get to that goal regardless.

In answer to your other question, I've always lost 9-10lbs week 1 then my rate is usually around 2.5-4lbs a week. I'm very sedentary though so that's a big factor.

Good luck and welcome back!
