Krandle ~ a 3.5 pound weekly loss is very good – Holy cow! that's an average of half a pounder per day.
Johns Hopkins clinicals show 2-5 pounds per week as the average weight loss for people on the 5 and 1 program...whaddya want here - we could gather the team and come over there and surgically lop some of that off for ya.
I was on the weight loss program 7 months, on transition for another month and a half...if it had taken me two years to get it off, I would have been thankful for every ounce a day that was going in the right direction.
It is not fair that 3.5 pounds can appear on the hips overnight and it takes 10 days to come off but that's the way it is...you're losing it faster than with any other program available.
One shake at a time...
