    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.

    When you think about quitting, think about why you started!

    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

    I have found that weeks when I eat tonnes of speed and super speed foods my weight loss is greater, this works for me
    I will reach my target, 2014 is my year for success!!


    Target 1: 10.7st - Reached 25/02/14
    Target 2: 10.0st - Reached 08/04/14
    Target 3: 9.7st (My weight before falling pregnant with my first, never been there since!)
    Target 4: 9.0st (Was this weight at 17)
    Target weight: 8.7st (Can't ever remember being this weight, probably 14/15)
