My weight loss last week was incredible. I lost 8 pounds in 7 days. I have decided to increase the intensity of my exercise and am now seeing a stall. Is this because of an increase in muscle mass? At what point should I expect the loss to begin again?

Give it time, if it's still not working lower the intensity back a bit.
1st Goal: 150 lbs
2nd Goal: 135 lbs
3rd Goal: 125 lbs

I'm glad it just moved along, but I was just about to tell you that it would. If you lose THAT much in a week, then some will be water - and your body will reclaim water every now and then. Nothing to worry about. Just keep going.

From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, and living healthy. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier!

Thanks for the tip. I've always used honey & granola, but that adds a lot of carbs. Yours is a much better recipe.
