The opposite can happen as well. Depending on how overweight you are, some people lose weight quite rapidly, then hit a wall. This can lead to frustration as well, since they don't understand why they are not losing weight at the same pace.
Yeah when your a plenty overweight and go on a hard workout it's actually pretty easy to burn off those first pounds (eating habits included) the hard ones to lose are the last ones on your goal..
I think that's called hitting a plateau. Your body also gets used to doing the same exercise so you have to find some creative ways to change your exercise habits. It's great to change your exercise plan every once and while to keep seeing results.
