Hi I'm shell today is my first day I'm currently 85kg disgusted at my self. I'm only 159cm and after my two boys have found it a struggle to lose there left over lol.. Have a question how much a week do most people lose first week as my ideal is 55
I have just started my first tablet today 30mg Duromine ,took it at 7:00 am this morning , not feeling hungry at all ,just weighed my self after a very long time ,shocking weight of 106kg , I put on all this weight from my last child .Goal weight 65-70kgs .
Any advice out there to make this process pleasant.
Welcome, ladies! Shell, actually, no exact numbers exist since you're no machine, but human. Therefore your body loses as much as it thinks best. There's nothing we can do about it But personally from my experience I can say 1 kg loss per week (regularly) is awesome! Given that you have not so much to lose (comparing to extreme obese) I'd say you can easily get this loss if you follow healthy diet and EXERCISE. Remember: you can even have 3 kg loss at first week, all this is water that comes out. After that your body may have some break" but you shouldn't worry.
SA Girl, to make this weight loss pleasant - make up different meals every day. Small but healthy meals, go google or look through our forum topics, you will find some good recipes. When I say - exercise, I ain't joking, because even the easiest exercise or daily physical activity brings more energy and makes you feel good. You can drink water, or home-made sugar-free lemonade, ice tea, etc if you aren't water lover. Make a diary, note there your achievements, or even here on the forum you can create blog. Make yourself rewards every time you get to another point of your weight loss. Like, buy some outfits, or even foods that you don't eat regularly, but love so much (a small one because you don't want to start all over again LOL)
Good luck guys!
