Faith’s new food plan was just what the doctor ordered—she shed another 0.6 pounds this week. She is now 62.8 pounds after just 7 weeks!
Faith’s “prescription” for weight loss was to lose between 1 and 2% of her body weight each week. As Faith initially weighed 68 pounds, this calculated to be between 0.68 to 1.36 pounds per week.
To be considered “on target” at the 7 week mark, Faith should be weighing in with between 4.5 and 9.5 pounds of weight loss. With this week’s weigh-in—she is right on track at 5.2 pounds! If Faith keeps up this pace of weight loss, it will take her between 24 and 30 weeks to lose all her unwanted weight!
Congratulations to Faith and her mom—we are more than half way through the Healthy Weight Challenge!
