In the last two weeks I have changed how I workout quite a bit. Between 1/19/14 and 2/1/14 I gained about 10 pounds in the last 6 days I lost 5.8 lbs. Every other time I've started working out I've always just lost a pound or two over a couple weeks. These results seem dramatic to me. Is this normal? Was I just doing it wrong before?

It's normal when we make changes to our eating habits and workout routine so I wouldn't sweat it much early on

Well, my mom told one time that its healthy to lose 2 pounds a week. If u lose more than that, then it could possibly be dangerous. This is just what she told me. If i were u, i wouldn't try to overdue any thing. Let your body adjust..... i hope this was helpful.

I don't thing i've been overdoing it. I started taking whey protein and changed the way I was working out form 2 short sets a a day (with 2 days off) to one long set a day (with 2 days off). I also increased my calorie intake be 200 a day.

When you first make dramatic changes, it's normal to lose several pounds the first couple of weeks. You'll probably see it start to slow to about 2lbs per week. It's very difficult (and without proper guidance, can be dangerous or counterproductive - such as losing muscle) to continue losing that amount week after week after week.
