What is a typical amount of weight to lose per week?

I had these same questions when I first started the Jenny Craig program!  For me, the first several weeks I lost about an average of 1-3 pounds.  It seemed the first 50 pounds I didn't have to do much to lose weight.  I had so drastically changed my calorie intake and my body instantly knew it.  After the first 50 it started to shed off at a snail's pace.  It would be .5 pounds and many weeks no change at all (but at least I wasn't gaining!).  This is the time when I saw my weight start to plateau.  It is common the longer your body has had to become accustomed to the diet (at least from my experience!).  Bringing in cardio is always helpful; along with examining areas in your diet that still may be adding increased, unknown calories.  It seemed I always broke these stubborn plateau's by choosing workout routines that had moments of intense cardio, thus increasing my heart rate.  That does not necessarily mean long, torturous hours of working out.  For example, Billy Blanks' Cardio Workout DVD was beneficial because it had many short spurts of increased heart rates for only 40 minutes.  Hiking on flat land and then just adding one steep hill always seemed to do the trick as well.  Whatever you find that works for you just make sure it is slow and steady.  This will help you to be able to keep it off long-term.

 How can I eat healthy if I am always out and have to resort to fast food? Until tomorrow...
