    How do people lose so much weight each week...

    Lose on average between 1&2lb a week, 2 if I'm lucky but I hear about people losing like 3/4lb a week. I have a lot to lose, weigh in at 15.9 at the moment yet people who weigh a lot less, it just drops off!! How do they do it? Lol soo jealous, wish there was a magic button!! Xx

    I'm the same way as you, when I was doing WW I'd lose between 0.5 and 1lb really, if I was really lucky would lose 1.5 or 2lb.

    I know the recommended safe weight loss is 1-2lbs a week, anything more is considered too much!

    It would be lovely to drop the weight quickly but you risk sagging skin if you do that. If you lose weight slowly your skin has more of a chance to stretch back slowly.

    I CAN be a big loser (easy - rude!) but it tends to be a fortnightly cycle where I STS in-between times. So it evens out to 1-2lbs. Everyone is different but looking at the bigger picture we achieve much the same in the end
