I don’t think a pound a week is slow, but since there can easily be fluctuations of several pounds due to water variations, it can mean that changes don’t show up, and you have to monitor for a few weeks to see what’s happening. I often have two or three weeks of bouncing up and down between the same numbers, then I’ll suddenly drop. The average is close to a pound a week, but there are often times when it seems that nothing’s happening, unless you look at the long term graph.

Of course, at the start you don’t have a long term graph, so there’s no way to tell the difference between the pattern I describe, and a lack of progress, other than persisting for long enough that the weight loss has time to show past normal daily fluctuations.
