    Ok so it's roughly 8 weeks til christmas and I need to lose 26lbs to get to goal. What do you think? Any tips on what to do apart from the obvious of sticking religiously to points!!

    Thats a tall order! I don't lose weight easily so I know I would never achieve that. I am aiming for a stone by Christmas.

    Good luck!

    i reckon, just try your hardest stick to points, dont be too dissapointed if you dont make 26, but you may get close :D

    Good luck! stick at it :)

    Being realistic?? No 26 in 8 weeks isn't doable. WW say 1 to 2 lbs a week so you're looking at around a stone comfortably. 26lbs in 8 weeks is a VLCD style loss.

    Why not aim for a stone and any more is a bonus x

    ^ What Starlight said. Dont put pressure on yourself to lose that much as its not a realistic amount to lose, particularly as you get closer to goal. Id love to lose that much by Christmas, but I know theres more chance of me waking up tomorrow a size 8 as there is me losing that much by xmas.
    A stone would be an awesome amount - Im going to try for that :) xx

    As you've just started your weightloss will be good I can't remember my 1st 8 weeks loss, looking at riotgirls she lost 21lbs in her first 8 weeks , the first week will be your highest usually.
    As said try to aim for 1.5 to 2lbs a week, you have not much to lose so that loss is probably more likely , also it's about changing your lifestyle or the weight will go back on ( much to my knowlegde sadly ).
    I know it's great to get to goal asap and we all want that like yesterday but everything taked time , I started 1st march wanted 5 stone off Christmas but my weightloss slowed I was annoyed for ages but have to realise all I can do is do plan 100% as much as possible and exercise then it's upto my body , I've lost 3 stone 10lbs (52lbs) so I have 18lbs for my Christmas goal which I won't reach so I'm aiming for another 10lbs.

    Good luck what ever we lose it's off and not on hey :) xx
