I lost 6 pounds month number one but only 3 pounds this month with one week left. I've been really diligent...I want to lose about 10 more pounds total. Is it normal to lose 1/2 the weight the 2nd month?

Oh yeah, it gets harder. Your body adjusts quickly to the decreased calorie intake.
But you are still losing! I know how you feel. I was losing about 2 lbs a week and now it's just averaging a 1lb a week. I'm amazed at how HARD it is to get the weight to continue coming off! Good luck you you - don't give up!

I've been averaging 2 lbs a month and I'm not giving up!

Your experience sounds completely normal, particularly when you get closer to your goal weight.
1. Be sure you are doing a lot of exercise and keep it varied.
2. Be sure you are eating enough calories. If you go too low for your body, your body thinks it's in some kind of famine and starts slowing down your metabolism.

It's normal! Keep up your great work - you're doing excellent!
To boost the metabolism, try upping the intensity of your workouts. Try doing intervals if you're on a machine like the treadmill, where you walk at brisk pace for 5mins and then run at a faster pace for 3. Good luck!!

As you lose weight, your exercise burns fewer calories (because you are doing less work in the same exercise if you're lifting/moving a lower body weight). Definitely step up your exercise program and vary it.

Your on track.
At the beginning of a diet you always lose the most you won't be able to sustain that weight loss. A healthy weight loss goal is supposed to be 1-2 lbs a week but I have never been able to sustained a 2 lb a week goal.
Just think if you continue to lose just a measly 3 lbs a month by this time next year you'll have lost more than 35 lbs.

Thanx for the feedback and i like the perspective of by next year, I'll have lost 35 pounds, more than even what I'm shooting for. Sometimes I think if you can put a time period on it, it makes it a lot easier.
