    Hello all,
    My first post here and I'm after some advice. I am into week 2 of slimming world extra easy having lost 5 and half pounds in my first week and i have to drop 5 dress sizes before my sisters wedding in 2013. Have any others managed this? Would love to know. Thanks and sorry if this is a stupid question (as I'm not sure the ratio between how much weight you lose and how many dress sizes you drop)

    Tjololo :)

    I can't help with the dress size question, but 2013 is a long way off. a good 80 weeks just to the turn of the year.

    Average 1.5 per week (do-able) would equate to 120lb (almost 8.5st) - even 1lb per week would be 80lb (5st 10lb)

    I lost approx 90lb in 36 weeks but blokes supposedly lose faster than you ladies. Shrimpy's figures will give you an idea of what can be done - 68lb in 14 month (approx)

    Definitely doable, presuming you have it to lose (i.e not a size 12 at present) I've dropped 2 sizes in 4 months!
