    Will you be doing a refeed before you join SW? If not then you may well see a gain at first as your body adjusts to eating normally again. I would start on the red plan and then gradually introduce more carbs personally. One other thing, if the exercise you mention is a new thing then that can often cause fluid retention at first which some people find shows on the scales Aim for a pound a week and see how it goes

    It often seems that people with more to lose have bigger losses to start off with, but in my experience a stone in 7 weeks is very doable. Go for it, SW is a far healthier and more enjoyable way to lose weight than a VLCD

    Hi CURVYlicious (love the name btw!)

    I think aiming for a stone in 7 weeks is definitely achievable.

    You could experience a little bounce back weight in the first week from your VLCD/increase in exercise, but 2 days shouldn't make too much difference. I'm sure the scales would shift in the right direction the following week anyway. Water is the key.

    Additionally, if you are planning on upping your exercise, you could always track your measurements alongside your weight loss (if you don't already). I find this boosts my confidence seeing how much my shape has changed even if I don't quite get the numbers off the scales.

    There are a few challenges going on in the off topic section, one for May and there might be one for June too which might be good motivation. I would love to lose a stone myself by then too and I'm aiming for little 2lb a week losses so I shall be spurring you on and picking up tips from you along the way.

    Good luck and happy slimming xx
