    Hi all,

    I've had a break for a couple of weeks and am gonna change my ww class as I don't think my leader is very supportive.
    The question is I'm about 11st 4 and would like to be about 9st 7 by Christmas. Is this possible, as in can I lose 2lb a week up until then??? any advice please xxx

    I think that's a bit of an ambitious goal really. I'd say that you're better setting yourself something more achievable (maybe a pound a week) otherwise you might be setting yourself up for failure, which could make you feel more disappointed and end up falling off the WW wagon.

    Thanks! I think I'm really eager to get it off by then but I know slower is best.

    2lbs a week is the very upper level WW say you can achieve and realistically its unlikely to happen every week. As CS says, setting a lower target is probably a good idea. You can certainly make a dent in your goal between now and then :)

    I agree with the others, a pound a week would be a great goal. If you aim at 2 a week and only make 1 any week you will end up feeling depressed, but if the aim is 1 and on some weeks you lose 2, you'll be feeling so encouraged you'll be more likely to stay on track.
    Good luck with it, hope your new leader is just what you need to get you there.

    Also even if you want 2lb a week don't think it like that. Think more an average per week by the end because losing 3.5lb one week is great but if you only lose 0.5lb the next week it doesn't feel as good. But if you lost 2lb each week I'm sure you'd feel better!

    Took me a long time to get my head around that idea!
