Newbie...Realistically, how much sensible weight loss is possible in a year?

    I am hoping to lose approximately 4 stone in weight. Is this a sensible target over a period of 12 months or would I be expecting too much? Interested to hear how others have done in a year. Thank you :)

    I lost my 4 stone in a year.
    I also know another member who has lost 6 in the same time.

    Loads of variables! It depends on things like:
    • Your age,
    • Starting weight,
    • How faithfully you follow the plan,
    • Whether you're exercising or just dieting,
    • If you're a first-time dieter or yo-yo-er
    • Whether you have weeks off for holidays/birthdays/christmas etc., or follow the plan all the time.
    Things like that!

    A sensible rate of loss is 1-2lbs a week. 4 stone is 56lbs...so in a year, yes it's totally achievable, even allowing for the odd gain.

    However, even if you don't make your 4 stone target in a year, I can guarantee if you get started and try to make it, you'll be a darn sight closer to goal in 12 months than if you didn't try. :)

    Thanks for the replies. Can I ask if you do red or green or EE?? Helliecopter it totally makes sense hearing you say 1-2 lbs a week over a year is easily doable. I suppose I wasnt thinking like that! I feel much more positive now :D

    I joined ww on 28 Oct 08 and got to goal on 12th Oct 09, having lost 9 stone, I have since lost a further half stone or so. I stuck to the plan 100% and lost almost every week, and do a lot of excercise.

    Hiya...it took me a year to lose 4 stone and i took a VERY scenic route lol!

    I think you should focus on 1 lb a week, if you do that, in a years time you will be just 4lb short of your four stone loss. I think 1 lb a week is very realistic.

    All the best x
