Hello :D

Finally I stuck to my calories and exercised every day the last week. I have lost 4.1 kgs. Is this okay?

I have read that a person should only lose between 1 -2 kgs a week.

I have been eating 1,500 calories a day, drinking water and having a daily treat (no more than 150 calories).

My diet is largely consists of carbohydrates (love them). I eat 2 pieces of fruit, small serving of meat, 5 servings of veggies and 2 servings of diary and 5 servings of carbohydrates.

Going to the gym every night for an hour and a half.

Drinking 2 litres of water a day.

I just cannot seem to get this right... 4.1 kgs! Weighed on same scales...... they are accurate. My waist went down from 81cm to 74 cm.

Is this unhealthy?

Thanks!

Have a great day

Michelle

Although experts do generally recommend .5 to 1 kg per week to be safe (and sustainable) weight loss for women (1-2 for men) in the first few weeks you will quite often have bigger (sometimes much bigger) losses than you would usually further on down the track, Im sure within a few weeks it will settle into a pretty consistent amount that is healthy for you ;) Great loss though good on you! :D

ditto. In my first few weeks I lost 4 then gained 8!!! Your body should settle though
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

yep ditto to the above, the first few weeks of weightloss you lose more because its a lifestyle change, you are getting rid of fluid etc. one week i lost 4.1kg -shocked the hell out of me! lol. i was thinking 'ok are my scales wrong?' but it tends to even out later on.
