I have been working out and tracking my diet for 6 weeks and I've only lost 5 lbs. HELP! What can I do differently?

5lbs in 6 weeks is actually terrific. Very sustainable and in my experience it will be easier to keep off.

Weight Watchers, which is consistently rated at the top of weight loss programs, tell us to expect an *average* of .5 to 2 lbs per week. That means some are below .5 per week and some are above 2. And it's all good.

Small losses add up!

But whatever you are doing, keep doing it.

Are you taking your measurements? A lot of times for me I will lose weight and then lose inches, it's a cycle for me. When I'm losing inches, the scale doesn't budge.
Also how do you feel? Mentally, physically? These are the changes I see the most in myself.
Focus your attention.
