    Hi, I've just started ww after being on CD. I know everyone's different but at 5 4" and 12 st can anyone approximate how long it'll take me to get to 9st 7lbs? I know losses are slower on ww but what would be a reasonable expectation?

    WW say you can lose up to 7lbs a month. You might have an initial gain coming off CD (although lots of people don't) but after that you could lose the 2.5 stones in 5 months.

    Starlight has had quicker losses than that - you might want to read her diary thread.

    I've been doing ww for 3 weeks and have lost 8lbs so far.

    I don't really know the answer to that for sure, but in my ww journel it says 8 glasses...suppose it really depends on the size of your glass as to how much that is, but it's ok for a rough guide. You don't NEED to drink any certain amount of water as far as I'm aware (it doesn't affect weight loss anyway - not in my experience of ww anyway) but it's obviously good for you, so glug away as much/little as you want is my advice. Sorry if that's no help :eek:

    Hi there

    As everyone else has said you can lose half a stone a month :)

    There are no water guidelines for WW but do bear in mind you intake about 2l a day through food, so your 2l up straight away. I usually drink about 2l a day of sugar free squash but Ive never found that my water intake has any bearing on my weight loss

    I notice a big difference if i have my 2-3 litres of water a day. I feel fuller and always have bigger losses. Not sure why...

    It only seems to work for me with water though, drinking loadsa tea/diet coke etc never seems to make much difference.

    Sometimes you might think you are hungry when you are actually thirsty so from that point of view it is good to make sure you get enough to drink.
