Male, Age 41, Height 6' 1/2"
Starting date: 09/27/2005
Starting Wgt: 183.5 lbs
In 1st three months (by early January '06), I had lost 20 lbs (down to 163.5)
Did not start any exercising until Mid-to-late March.
At beginning of May, I was at 159 lbs.
By early June 157.5 lbs, for a total loss of 26 lbs, which was 8.5 lbs more loss than my initial target weight of 165.
I am now at about the bottom of where I expect to go (maybe another 1 - 3 lbs to go at most, but in no hurry to get there).
Now that I'm at the bottom, the loss is very slow, but the eating is no harder, and I am still very gradually losing. It's also hard for me to overeat as I get overly full if I approach even 2000 calories, which used to be a"great day" for me before starting on SLD.
As an aside,the way I weigh myself is to use the lowest point of each week. So, my lowest weight the week before I started on SLD was 183.5. My lowest weekly weight as of late is 157.5. This gets me out of the day-to-day normal water weight fluctuation concerns of "oh no, I'm up today."
