Losing 5 pounds in one week is not only unreasonable, it is unlikely. If you watch the t.v. show The Biggest Loser you will see how much it takes to lose 5 pounds in one week. They are usually working out 4-5 hours a day, everyday, and have their diets monitored very strictly. If you do lose 5 pounds in one week it is probably all water weight and not fat. Check the scale in two weeks and see if your weight have balanced out. You will most likely gain back the weight you thought you had lost. As you exercise you will most likely gain a few pounds in muslce mass at first and then start to lose weight (fat) as you exercise more. Proper weight loss and exercise takes time and will not happen quickly. Set your goal for a 6 month period. Quick weight loss will not stay off for long. Most people who lose weight quickly will only gain back the weight plus more. Diet pills and gimics are the biggest culprits here. Dehydration is not a quick answer for weight loss. If you exercise too much, you will only gain more water weight back as you body fights to regain a normal state of hydration. This is the same with starvation. If you do not eat for a few days and then return to a regular diet you will most likely gain more weight because your body will store the fat quicker and more of it in the fear of you starving yourself again.

Being healthy and keeping a healthy weight takes a lot of effort and time. The younger you are, the easier it is. Keep in mind that patience is the one thing here that will take the weight off and keep it off. A balanced diet and proper exercise routine is key.
