That doesn't sound healthy at all.
1-2 lbs a week is the healthy way to lose weight.
My calorie goal is 1200 a day.

It is normal to lose that fast the first week. As much as it sucks it is mostly all water weight. :(

It honestly sounds like you're not eating properly. It's not healthy to lose that much that quick.

Ah didn't think of that. I wish that's how it was for me when I was counting calories.

My daily goal is 1300 but the first day I did 1100, day 2 1110, and today 870 so far. I might eat one more time though.

My first week of weight watchers I lost 9 pounds. After 12 weeks I have lost 41. It is faster than recommended but I am eating my amount of points each day. Some people just lose faster than others. My like I said, from what all of the books that I have gotten from Weight Watchers, it is normal to lose that fast the first week or two.

Hmm, strange.
I guess if you have a lot to lose, it comes off quicker too sometimes.

I definitely have a lot to lose. I'm at an even 200 after losing the five and my goal is to be at 130. I'm only 5'2. I've got a loooonnnng way to go.

Oh no I didn't take it the wrong way. :D When I think about how much I have to lose I honestly get super discouraged. My DH is skinny and has a badass metabolism (of course :roll: ) so he can eat whatever he wants anytime he wants which makes it a little harder for me to resist junk/fast food.
