I've heard that about 2 pounds a week is a healthy weight to lose and anything more than that is dangerous. Is this right? The reason I ask is because after weighing myself this last weekend, I discovered I weighed more than I have in my life. On Monday, I started tracking the food I eat (portion control is a big problem for me) and I started making sure I get at least a half hour of exercise a day. After weighing myself today, I've lost just over 3 pounds (weighing daily just after I get up. I'm on track to lose more than 4 pounds this week. I'm not starving myself, just making sure I eat appropriately and either commuting on my bike or walking every day.
So, ultimately, is this ok?
