I've been Paleo for two and a half weeks. I'm a 5'5" female, and started at (ulp) 170. This morning I was 154. 16 lbs in 18 days...should I be alarmed by this? I'm not hungry, feel perfectly satisfied, have not increased activity at all. What do you think?

When I started (207) I lost 5.5 lbs a week for the first three weeks (so 16.5 lbs in 21 days). Then plateaued for two weeks with no change in weight. After that I was pretty consistent at 2 - 3 lbs per week until I hit my current weight (165) where I have been for about 6 weeks.
You are doing great, you may hit a plateau (as I did), just stick with it!

It could have been some excess water weight and edema, not necessarily all fat, but that is still great to get in balance! What are you eating? Are you low carb or counting calories?
