HI there

Please don't be despondent.
You should aim to lose no more than 0.5 - 1kg per week. You have lost 6kg in about 11 weeks, which is absolutely fine. No doubt, most of that weight loss is fat, which is just what you want. That weight didn't appear overnight, so don't expect to lose it all so quickly. Keep up what you are doing and in a few months time - you will be feeling great.
