    I've just done my first week, some exercise, not loads, it was six days rather than 7 and I ate loads (posted on here because I was worried I was eating too much). Certainly didn't feel like I'd lose much, but weighed in at 4.5lbs down - bring it on! And good luck with your first weigh in.

    It differs so much from person to person and is based on so many factors so you cant really compare - it also depends on what your diet was like pre-SW. If you ate prettily healthily to start with then you will not see the huge loss of someone whose diet was really bad

    And to be honest it doesnt really matter what you lose the first week only what you have lost by the week you get to target - and by then you wont give two figs what you lost in week one!

    Funnily enough I lost more the week I got to target than I did the first week or at any time during my weight loss journey

    By the way - you say you are only using a few syns. That is not following the plan properly and will not help you get bigger losses - a lot of people find it actually slow them down ;)

    I lost 7lb the first week, but everyone is different. Some people lose slower than others, but at the end of the day we are all making those first steps to losing weight so any loss is a positive step.

    Look at it as a journey, some people get in their cars, drive on the motorway at 70mph and reach their destination quickly. Others drive at a steady 40mph and take the scenic route and stop along the way to admire the view. But ultimately we all take that same journey and we all end up at the same place, but some will get there quicker than others.

    No need to use many syns in a roast dinner most of it would be free if you do it SW friendly, except for stuffing and yorkshire puds!

    I lost 6lbs on my first week!

    You can use your syns on anything you want. Chocolate, crisps, alcohol, fruit juice, pretty much anything you want, as long as it stays within the daily limit. Some people save them up, but I prefer to use mine daily unless I have a special occasion coming up. I try to have the full 15, because then later down the line, if the losses slow down, you can lower the number of syns, whereas if you start with a small amount you have less things to try and kickstart the weight loss again.

    In my first week we had 2 barbecues and a curry night. I lost 7.5 lbs. I think the important thing is not to think of it as a diet or think you have to cut down on food. Eat loads of healthy stuff and you will lose weight. Cut down on food and your metabolism will slow down.

    it differs quite a bit from person to person and each time I have 're started' SW. I am hoping to get to target this time and stay there.

    I have lost 4 & 5lb's in my first week. A few years ago I lost 7.5lb's in my first week but I had really been scoffing loads of naughties beforehand - and was at my heaviest of about 13.12.

    This time I am finding the plan much more manageable and I lost 5.5lb's in my first week which I was well chuffed with.

    I mainly do red with lots of veggies and one green day per week - I like the extra HEB

    HTH in some way - just go for it and good luck.

    The first time I did SW ages ago, I think I lost about 5lbs. Last year, I did it properly and lost 4lbs. This time, I've only lost 2lbs in my first week but I have less to lose than the previous times AND I wasn't eating as badly as I was before.

    I lost 7.5 lbs in my first week - but it was the 1st week in January last year, and I had an absolute pig-out the day before my 1st meeting, so am sure some of that 7.5 lbs was just mince pies! ;-)

    Everyone is different - I even know one lady who had a small gain in her 1st week but then a big loss in her 2nd, so it's best to try not to compare yourself to others.
