Looking back, I've lost 2.5 lb. since I stopped protocol! That is exactly what my goal was on the calorie counter. I figured out the average weight loss for my 7 weeks of protocol. I lost 20 lb. Most of that was in the first couple of weeks. If you average it all out, with the painfully slow last week or two (or so it seemed) it was 2.8-2.9 lb. per week. And I am now eating more than double the calories...of food I like!
That does not mean that I'm considering protocol a waste. Like I said before, I tried to get rid of the weight all summer and couldn't the 'traditional' way. It's like protocol kick-started my body into letting it go, and now I'm on a roll and much happier with how I feel and look already.
I hope I can keep it up!
