    how much do people lose each week?

    I did my first weigh in today and ive lost three pounds thought it would of been more cos its the first week, but i think its cos sometimes i forget to have my healthy extras :/ and sometimes my superfree food but im just glad ive lost something anyway, i thought i would remember things without writing them down but i cant, so found it a lot easier to keep a food diary.

    I've lost between 1 and 2.5lb most weeks. Had a few small gains and two stay-the-sames. One of the gains was followed by a 4lb loss which was my biggest. 1-2lb is a healthy amount to aim for. In the first week, big losses can come from losing a lot of water weight and depend on how unhealthy your diet was before and your body type. Well done on your excellent 3lb!
    Made it to target after nearly ten months on Slimming World and now working to maintain a super healthy lifestyle.
    (Not complaining if I lose a little more but the next goal is to get fit and be happy!)

    I think it can vary a lot, depending on
    • how much you have to lose
    • how old you are
    • how many diets you've been on


    Frustratingly, I rarely lose much more than a pound a week. But it's much better off than on, and I can eat when I'm hungry. Slow and steady wins the race. So they say, anyway.

    The food diary is a fundamental part of the plan when you are just starting out. As you say it's easy to forget that you didn't have that healthy extra or the few more syns in the biscuit you forgot you ate etc. 3lbs is a great start, well done! Everyone loses at different rates but 1 - 2lbs per week is an average. Men lose quicker so don't even try to compare your stats as frustrating as it is, you cannot compete with a man

    Good luck on your SW journey.

    I lost 2lb in my first week but then lost 5lb in my second week, and averaged between 1 & 2lb per week thereafter, with the occasional gain or maintain, despite sticking to plan 100% the whole time.

    1% of your body weight is a safe amount to lose if you are on plan. First week weight loss is more about your body using up its first stage energy reserves (glycogen), it uses that up first when your body begins to eat less than it needs to sustain itself. This is often referred to as 'water weight'. Some people have big losses, some have small. It's often a reflection of just how bad your eating was prior to going on plan. If you were following a different diet immediately before changing to SW, your week one loss wont be anything spectacular.

    I gained in my first week and have since averaged around a half a pound a week, but I just kept plodding away.

    I think one thing which can make a big difference to the amount lost, is the difference between your former eating habits and the SW plan. If you used to eat lots of fried foods/takeaways/chocolate/crisps/cheese etc and drink a lot of sugary drinks (whether alcohol or pop) then following SW is going to make a huge difference and the weight will drop off. However, if you always ate a lot of fruit and veg, already had skim milk, drank diet cola and so on, the difference is not going to be that great and your weight loss will be slower.

    Don't compare yourself to anyone else. Feel pride in whatever you achieve and persevere and keep a food diary - if you have one on here you'll soom make some friends who will help you.

    I loose even less then that, but I don't have much to lose. I note only loose between 0.5 - 1lb a week. But I am happy with that as its consistent and I hope this way I will then be able to maintain it.
