    there's so many reasons hon. we're all different. it depends on how much you have to lose in the first place, how active you are, your metabolism, genetic make up, whatever. just think though. 2lbs a week is 8lb a month- more than half a stone. 3lb a week is 12lba month- nearly a stone. that is loads! don't lose sight of that, ok? most of the double figure losses are in the first week. not many people lose 10lb week in, week out! x

    I think youll find the people with big losses are doing CD and LL

    Noone on WW is losing anything like that were all losing about 2lbs a week.

    If you wanted to see the big losses youd need to change to one of them :(

    the best thing to do hon is to not think about how much others are losing.. it isn't a contest, it's your personal journey. I agree with Starlight. the bigger losses are on the Cambridge, Lighter Life and Lipotrim diets. This is because they are all Very Low Calorie Diets and don't permit food.

    A 2lb a week loss is fantastic! Over half a stone a month!! If you are losing that on WW then it clearly works for you which is brilliant :D

    So, don't worry about other folks hon, you are doing brill! :)

    2 to 3 pound weekly weight loss on WW is fantatic, you should be very happy with that, even on a vlcd it is very good.:)

    I think the most I ever lost in a WW week was 4lb, which was exceptional ! normally it would be 1-3 lbs for me. :)
