lbs is easier though because 3500 calories = 1lb, and 3500 per week = 500 calories deficit per day (so its very easy to do a quick calc to keep expectations in order). So you know 500 calories deficit (1lb) is a pretty damn good rate (it's the rate I have lost at over the last couple of years). 1000 calories deficit is a very good rate (2lbs). Anything over that is basically guaranteed water because its almost impossible to make that kind of deficit.
Honestly, for you with PCOS, expect this to slow a little. I don't say that to be annoying, but to keep expectations realistic and prevent a brain crash later. Anything over 1lb is really ****ing good with PCOS, seriously. It's one of those "legit" weight loss ****er uppers. If you can lose at 1.5lbs per week, that will be absolutely magnificent.
That's the thing, I know that but my brain won't shut up anyway.
When I started this, 1lb a week was a goal that seemed unlikely. Now I'm down half a stone (water, most likely, but it's still numbers on the scale) and it's like 'Why is this not something I'm celebrating?'
Gotta get the brain in order otherwise I'll end up like my sister, and I definitely don't want that. Though here's good news: Tomorrow I'll be eating over 2000 cals, but if I can spend the rest of the week at my usual just-over-1000, my average will still be only 1150-ish. So I don't even need to make up for it. And I had pizza tonight. Granted, it was a ****ing tiny one, but still, pizza! Hands down, this is the best diet plan I've ever done, mate, thanks for putting me onto it.
Will also say congrats on your logging btw, ****ing perfect, and consistent, and I'm jealous. Much better than mine has been.
Though I'm sure when I've been logging for 325 days, I'll be far less consistent.
