    Yikes, you guys are crazy! I would LOVE to loose 3 stone by xmas... Currently I'm 17 stone (having lost 8lbs on SF) but thinking I might start SW this week. So, 17 stone and 5'4, is it really possible to loose 3 stone by xmas?! I exercise 3 times a week (aerobics, swimming & a long walk.)

    Thoughts please?

    I personally don't think you should pressure yourself to lose 3st by Xmas. If you are starting SW you will probably have a bigger loss the first week then it will sow doen a bit.

    3 stone in 6 and a bit week on SW sounds like it could be difficult as that's half a stone a week but everyone loses weight at different rates but only way to find out is to jump on the wagon and see where you get to by xmas.

    the one thing you can be sure of is if you join and follow the programme you'll lose something by xmas

    well i just got my 3 stone, and that was starting at end of april....so I would say no, but you could lose a fair amount, maybe a stone or stone and half by xmas realistically.:sigh:

    the people who have done the 3 stone by xmas thread started it a while ago. I would say aim for a stone and then you wont be disapointed!
    Good luck! I weigh 16.10 and am 5"3 so am roughly the same amount as you and I am aiming for a stone for xmas!

    I have lost a stone and a half in 9 weeks. So I think you could lose the same before Xmas cos you are likely to have a big lose in your 1st week (although not guaranteed!)

    Don't put too much pressure on yourself, it doesn't matter how much you lose as long as it coming off. Work at about the 2lbs mark and it will stay off when you get to target, too fast and you will have problems keeping it off. Slow and steady wins the race. xxx Loobylou

    I find when you have too high expectations you're always disapointed.. where as if you aim for realistic and the unexpected happens, it's a great surprise!!

    I always aimed for 7lb target at a time, they are easier to reach and you feel so good that it spurs you on to the next 7lbs and so on. xxx Loobylou

    Also, 1-2lbs a week is a healthy amount to lose and you will also have more chance of keeping it off (so research shows!)

    Thanks. I know that 2 lbs a week is ok but I'm so impatient :( Hmmm, will need to find some motivation/reward/incentive for small loses i think! Thanks for comment. x

    I was on the three stone by Christmas thread, but stood no chance of actually doing it. So I've switched to the November thread, where you set yourself a target for the month. I find that the idea of losing 7-10 pounds this month feels much more positive, and likely, than 3 stone over 3 months.

    My message; set yourself realistic, short term goals. Success breeds success. And join a monthly thread. It's certainly helping my mind set. Good luck!

    people say it depends on your weight, but i think that's b******! i weigh, lets say, a few more stone than you and my average weekly loss is 2lbs. i stick to it 100% - i even weigh my healthy extras.

    i would be realistic and aim for 1 stone - especially as you may have a few xmas parties lined up before xmas gets here! :)
