carres1973 - could it be your definition of a reasonable pace for fat loss? I'm considering my loss effortless because I've only had to change my diet ... but it has taken a year to lose 40 pounds. That's way less than a pound a week, yet it seems effortless to me because I'm not going hungry and I'm not exercising. I'm only eating well and waiting. Based on what you said, it struck me that some could consider that a lack of success since it's not the "standard" pound/week, and so I was wondering if outlook could be part of the issue for you?
