    I think it all depends on height as well as what you have been eating leading up to actually starting your diet????

    I think people drop weight faster if they weight more to begin with.

    Yeah, the heavier you are the bigger the losses.

    Not necessarily the case. In my group i was by far the heaviest and have consistently lost 1 stone a month (except first month as larger loss) but the most sucessful slimmer was a girl who was a size 16 to start with, she lost 1.5 stones at least every month and sometimes 2 stones.
