    I've been on Weight Watchers since September and have lost about 2 and a half stone. I would say I'm ideally half way through my weight loss.

    For the first few months I was losing anywhere between 1-3 points a week, averaging at about 2lbs. Since Christmas I'm losing about 1lb a week on average. Is this normal? I don't know if it's the move from Discovery or my body is just used to the new amount of food it's receiving but I'm finding I'm not as enthusiastic as I was about the plan. :(

    Is this normal?

    wow, well done on the weight loss! that's fantastic. :)
    I'm pretty sure it happens to everyone, so there's nothing to worry about. I think you're doing a great job! :D

    it's just because the closer you get to goal the harder is it as there is less fat to lose, and ww say an average of 1-2lbs per week is right x

    I'm almost half way to my goal and the last few wks my losses have been 1lb a wk. I'm not to dissapointed because its still 1lb loss, im trying to do more exercise and using less weekly points to see if i get a better loss.
