3.5 pounds lost in 1 month when you only have 5 more pounds to go sounds more than good enough. This is a lifestyle, not a diet. Commit to it, and chances are very good that you'll be in the shape you want to be. And that might not involve weight loss, by the way. You could easily shift that 5 lbs of fat into muscle.
