The Best Answer
It took me roughly 3 months of slow carbing to get down at least 10lbs, BUT to be fair, I've been doing slow carbing for over a year now, so my body may go faster in losing than yours may.
So, just do the slow carb lifestyle.....and be patient. You are already pretty much IN your ideal weight range, it won't come off in a month. I'd give it 3-4 months to be realistic...this is if you do not stray and cheat midweek.
Hi, I'm new also, just started this week! I'm a 40 year old female, I'm 5.1" I think I weight around 147 lbs. I would like to lose 20 lbs. I didn't want to weigh myself because that usually makes me feel sad and messes with my emotions, I plan to take my measurement weekly plus my clothe will give me an idea if I'm shrinking or not, I do plan to weight myself 1 time per month and take pictures.
I'm on my 4th day after dropping the diet this past summer because of my issues with breakfast, I did really well the 1st time around, if I would have stuck with it a little bit longer I would have hit my goal so long ago! I lost about 10 lbs. in 2 months on this diet.
I have read that it will probably take a little longer for women to start seeing results, I guess we just have to be patient. This forum is really good and the people here are very helpful. Maybe we should keep each other posted see how we do as newbies.
Good Luck and I hope you stick with it! I'm determined to stick with this for life.
