    But is this your first week on a diet, or your first week on SW?? If youve come from another diet then you wont get the big first week loss. Its nothing to do with it being WW or SW, a lot of people go from one diet to another and expect a big first week loss every 'first week' and it just doesnt happen.

    3lbs is great :)

    3 lbs in the first week is an excellent loss, no need to be disappointed with it.

    Well done

    3lbs is excellent, and should be very proud of yourself. some people have had no loss 1st week, so be happy you never know what next weeks weigh in may bring.

    3lb is great! I've only lost 1lb and i'm happy with that. I'd be happy with 1lb a week x

    I agree, 3lb is a huge amount. I mean really, that's more than 5 packs of butter for goodness sake! Stop feeling so down as it'll affect how you feel about the plan and possibly how much you lose next week. Keeping a positive frame of mind is really important when losing weight.

    3lbs is brilliant! Often the more you follow different diet plans, the less your first time losses will be - but I'd consider 3lbs to be a v good loss!

    Last 3 times I have re joined SW (promise, I am sticking with it this time!!) I got:
    1lb off
    Stayed the same
    1lb off

    So don't be disappointed, it is 3lbs off you body and you should be proud of yourself. Well done! :D

    As other have said 3lb is a wonderful lose,

    its it far better to do it slowly as you more likely to keep it off.

    Three pounds is a brilliant loss, so don't be disappointed.
    SW is not one of those quick weight loss programmes, where you lose fast, and if you don't stick to it, put it back just as fast.
    Losing weight slowly is the best, as it's so much more likely to stay off. The ideal is 1 to 2 pounds per week.
    So, well done and good luck!
