Losses on first week


Full Member
I did it back in 2010 and only lost 6lb in my first week. I was on SS+ and would have liked a bit more. Starting next week again and I really am hoping for more than the 6.

Everyone is different, first time I did it I lost 8lbs, 2nd time 11lbs, I have seen people on here lose over a stone (I can only dream). From my experience if I had eaten loads the week before the loss was definitely bigger. It will be good whatever, just go for it.

I lost 5.5lbs in week one. Not sure why it was on the low side, but my losses didn't dip for a few weeks after that, so mostly I made up for it.

You never can tell - but it's worth knowing that most of the week one loss is glycogen and water - and that should you come off the diet it all has to go back on. True weight loss is mostly from week two onwards.

Morning all, first time I lost 11lb in 1st week and again when I re-started last January, other re-starts didn't last a week or I was cheating a lot.
Anyway here I am back again, but in a good place and finally losing weight to be kind to myself and my body, not because I think losing weight is the answer to all my problems.
Infact, ironically I am happiest I have been since my mum died(November 2007) and my husband finally acknowledged his faults and apologised for his lack of emotional support and appears to be a changed man....yet I am my heaviest ever by 1 pound!!
I had a great course of cbt on the NHs, then some private hypnotherapy(originally intended for weight loss) for self-esteem, both have made a considerable difference to my life......so it appears my head and marriage are once again in order.....no more excuses!!!!

Plus am off to Tenerife in 5 and a half weeks and need to be in clothes I had for summer holiday and fit in plane seat comfortably.

Am hoping for an 11lb loss again this week, but would love a stone!!!!! I have 6st 10 to lose to reach my target of BMI 24/25.
