    Hello ladies,

    Quick question, i know its silly to ask this as i know everyone will probably say it depends on the person how much you lose etc, but i start a new job as a paramedic on the 4th of august so i will only be doing SS for 7/8 weeks more, and i would love to lose 2 stone by that time just to feel healthier, but is this acheivable? or will i only lose 2 or 3 pounds a week?

    would love any advice from people who have lost 3 stone in 10 weeks and how much they lost a week. i know i shouldnt be thinking about it, but would really keep me motivated if i knew it was possible.

    Hi Jackie it really does depend on the individual how much weight they have to lose etc. It appears that people who have a larger amount to lose seem to shed more in the first couple of week or so. I have lost 24 and half pounds since I started 10 weeks ago (I did have planned cheats after SS for three weeks and then some not so planned cheats! However, I drew a line each time I did eat and got back to SS. Now my BMI is below 25 my CDC suggested I move up to 790 plan for a week then 810 plan. I am 5ft 2ish. Others have lost far more than me though, I'm sure they will come along and share their experiences.

    I started with a very similar bmi to you, and I lost 3 stone in 10 weeks, 1 stone in the first 2 weeks with an average of approximately 3.5 lbs per week after week 2 some higher some lower :)

    I've just lost 3stone (and half a pound lol) in 8 weeks, with one planned day off for a wedding.
    Its definately doable but probably worth bearing in mind that i was starting off much (much!) heavier than you.

    You'll def lose another stone in 7 weeks though i'm sure x
