    From now until christmas a loss of 2lbs a week means just over 3 stone by christmas! Thinking about my loss like that makes me more and more determined - christmas photos i will look back on and be happy with how i look! YES PLEASE!

    anyone else got about 3 stone to loose? x

    Christmas! thats miles away, iv got a due on the 16th that i wanted to loose5lb for from begining of July and i didnt manage that cos it seemed too far away in my head lol

    good luck with it, hope it works. breaking it down into 2lb a week seems like a good idea though

    I like to think of the weight loss in smaller steps than until Christmas (as it seems so far away) but it is helpful to know that with a steady loss I'll be nearly where I want to be by Christmas. I want to lose another half a stone by the end of this month when I go on holiday x

    yup i only worked it out as 3 stone is my total loss so i wondered how long it would take with a steady loss - im going on holiday on the 1st of september and im hoping to loose a stone in my first month - if i go to the gym lots and really stick to my meal plan - do you think this goal is attainable? i joined SW a few months ago and did two weeks - i lost half a stone in those two weeks so im hoping to repeat that.

    i think 1 stone in a month is achivable but its at the top end of what you can lose really. it all depends on you and how much you have to loose and if you stick to it. if you have a lot to loose i always think the weight comes off quicker at the begining then if you only have a little to shift (this isnt based on any science, just me). i also find that your weight loss slows down and jumps about a bit so if you dont quite make the full stone dont punish yourself. it is obtainable but anything off is a bonus in the long run.

    good luck

    Hiya Fit,

    Yeah, I'm with you too.

    In our first week we are bound to lose more than the 2lb so taking that into consideration if we lose 2lb most weeks and maybe 1 or 1.5 on other weeks we could do it....couldnt we????

    I'm with you hun.

    I actually have just over 6 stone to lose.... it works out at 87lbs I think, it's on my tracker below.
    So really, I should be able to do 3st by Christmas...

    Yep....where do I sign??? :D

    I know it's upsetting when you have a low loss, especially on your first wi but I would imagine that next wi will be your big one. xxx:hug99:
