Big loss first week none since

Forgive me if I am doing this wrong. I am a newbie. I am almost finished with week 3. I had a big loss of 9 lbs the first week and haven't really lost anything since then. I am exercising, drinking a lot of water and following the plan very closely. Wondering if I am doing something wrong now? I wouldn't expect to have a big loss again but something would help!! Trying not to get discouraged as I have about 75# to lose. Any advice/suggestions???

Hey Darcie! Welcome! It's normal for weight loss to slow down after the first week, especially after a dramatic drop like 9 lbs! Stick with the plan and it will work! You just have to give it some time. Come join us in the January challenge. It's a great thread to share your success and struggles! Also has a lot of really knowledgable folks who can help with any questions you may have.

Hi Darcie! Exactly as Julie said, that's totally normal. Your body needs some time to adjust after such a great loss the first week. Hang in there, be diligent about what you're eating, and it will work. Patience and consistency are the keys.

Thank you all for the encouragement. After being the same for 1.5 wks. I am down a pound today. Nothing to scream at but at least in the right direction.
