I've lost 25 lb but not even half way to reach the goal. I'm already worried about maintenance. I consider weight loss to be preparation to long long marathon. The lifelong race starts when I become the lifetime member.
Every WWs success story has this comment; People following the Weight Watchers plan can expect to lose 1-2 pounds per week. Whenever I loose more than 2 lb, I get automatic warming from the eTool. If you are highly motivated and full of expectation, and see the WWs comment above, you'll think, "I can do better than that. I should be expecting the most from myself because I'm going to try everything I can. If most of people loose 1 to 2 lb a week, I'll lose 3 lb." You wouldn't do math like "average of 1 and 2 is 1.5."
I want to stand on the start line as quick as possible so that I can start my lifelong marathon. I want to give myself enough time to learn about my habit and history, and change them as I acquire new and healthy habit. And moreover, I DO NOT WANT TO BE SICK FROM WEIGHT LOSS.
"Expect 1-2 per week, but more than 2 isn't healthy." is a crazy rule to me. So, I made a rule of my own. In average 2.4 lb is OK but make sure I pay attention and make sure I won't be sick. Talk to doctors and nurses whenever I want even if that's not necessary.
According to the eTool, I have lost 2.3 lb in average in the past 8 weeks. The same 2 lb is more percentage ratio comparing to 25 lb ago. It should become harder and harder to lose 2 lb a week. If it becomes impossible, that's how it should be. But if it doesn't, and I continue losing 2 lb every week and there is 5 more pounds to lose, I'll slow down and decide I'll only lose 1 lb a week.
