    A lady at my meeting last night had her first ever WI (joined last week) and lost 10.5lb!!! I could understand it if she had a lot to lose but she only looks like a small size 12 as it is - how is that even possible??!! Everyone was just completely gobsmacked!

    Haha!! Those are the 2 very comments my husband made, lol! Lord only knows how she did it, esp being so small already, maybe she had eaten & drunk alot the day she joined, getting rid of all the rubbish, and maybe she did have heavy clothes on, but she'd have had to have only eaten 0pp soup all week!!!

    I did a diet a couple of years ago and lost 10lb the first week but that was doing Lipotrim total food replacement!

    Maybe she had a lot of water weight to lose? Or week 1 was maybe her TOTM? Ask her at your next meeting, she might be happy to share her secrets :D

    What!!! let us know how she gets on next week - maybe she did have weights in her pockets as she wants to get to her goal weight so her weekly fee is free - hoo how cynical am I but come on that's alot from a small person even if she was totm / bunged up / had water retention in her 1st week!

    Oooh, I could do with a loss like that - two weeks of those losses and I would be at goal lol. I guess, I will just have to be happy with my 1/2 or 1lb that I usually lose lol :)

    Lol @ Kieragh!! I can't wait either - I drove past her yesterday and very nearly pulled the car over to pounce on her for her dieting tips, haha!! She may well have thought I was a bit of a stalker though so thought better of it!

    I do remember that she said she used to eat lots of bread & that week she had completely given up carbs, and walked much more than she usually does. But still.... 10.5lb!!!!

    The thing is, WW isn't meant to be completely carb free? I knew propoints promotes more protein and less carbs, but it's not unusual on a low carb diet to have huge losses in the first few weeks as your body goes into ketosis!

    10.5lb is a lot, wish I didn't love carbs as much..... :)
