    Hi!

    I am generally over on the calorie counting board, and just posted this there too, but thought I might get more ideas from here!

    I have been dieting for about 3 weeks now, and had a good weight loss of 7 lbs in the first 2 weeks. I had 2 bad days this week, drinking and eating, and was sure that I would have a bad weigh in.

    I have just weighed and have lost a whopping 12lbs!!

    I was wondering.... does it make sense that perhaps the heavier you are, the more quickly you lose the first bit of weight? I know that some people say it is "water weight" etc, not that it makes me any less happy! :)

    It's a fact. When you start a diet, you shed the pounds. Then you get where I am - plodding along at around 1lb per week and knowing you've got a year of this ahead.

    Fun fun fun! :D

    Heehee! Just don't get upset when it slows down. So long as it keeps going down that's all that matters!

    Sarah its sooo true, the more you have to loose the quicker it comes off at first, but then suddenly wham, it slows right down and you think you are doing something wrong. Beware of this, you are doing nothing wrong it's just the way it goes...as long as you are loosing, that is the most important thing.

    Good luck
