    Hi all,

    Was wondering how much it is normal to lose in your first month of SS as it seems that most people lose much more than 3lbs a week. I lost 10lb last week and although wouldn't expect that every week I would be gutted if it suddenly dropped from 10lb to 2/3lb. I know thats a good loss but would just be interested to know whats normal in initial stages.

    Any thoughts? xx

    Hi,In my first month I lost 22lbs, but everyone is different. In my first week I lost 12 1/2lbs but I think that was probably just because I pigged out and eat for BL***Y England!!LOL

    Hi,

    I don't think that there is a "normal" weight loss for the month as everyone loses at different rates. I personally lost 21lbs in my first 4 weeks - first week 10lbs like you, then it slowed down to 3 - 4 lbs per week.

    To be honest I would have been happy losing 14lbs in a month.

    I don't think it matters how much you lose - the fact that you are losing is the motivation behind any diet.

    Keep up the hard work and good luck for any future weigh in's.:D

    I agree - I don't think there is a normal rate - we are all so different. I lost 2 stone 3lb (31lb) in my first month. I understand what you are saying about not wanting the weight loss to slow down, as I feel the same, but actually I have lost every week for the last 6 weeks, which is amazing!! If it gets to 3.5lb a week, that still makes a stone a month, which is what Cambridge say you should achieve.

    Good luck with your journey honey x
