One thing I found with "Eat the same, but do more" (which I should also expand to include "try and drink less but end up drinking roughly the same") is that it takes 3 to 4 weeks for my weight to start moving. I look like I'm losing weight but the weight stays the same, this is because I'm adding more lean muscle mass and losing fat. Muscle is denser than fat, plus the muscle is added to legs/arms whilst fat mostly seems to be lost from the belly so there's a bit of weight redistribution too.
After 3-4 weeks I've put on most of the new muscle required and so the remaining effort goes towards weight loss.
If I can maintain 2kg/month loss whilst continuing to eat what I used to eat, and drinking what I normally drink, then that's a win for me. I know I could possibly accelerate it by cutting out booze completely, but that would make me even more dull than I normally am.
