    I know everybody is different, but on average how long does it take a person to lose 6 stone on LL?

    If you follow SS to the letter, it is very easy to lose a stone a month. Some people lose more - but a stone a month is very achievable.

    Hi
    I did LL in 2003 and just got my book out to see how long it took me - 6st off took me 25 weeks - but I seemed to lose alot slower than my friend who lost the same amount in just 20 weeks. Obviously everybody is different - but if you try to think of an average of a stone a month you probaly won't be far off - good luck with your journey

    Just a thought Jenna - why don't you start a weight loss diary??? It helps to look back on and see what you've achieved. And even if no-one else reads it (which we will 'cos we're a nosey bunch!!!) you can put down your goals, achievements, thoughts etc.

    Also measure yourself and take lots of before photos to compare.

    Good luck Jenna.... you will literally see yourself transform in your mirror - it's amazing.

    The first few days are hard but hang on in there and it's plain sailing after that!

    SS+
    Hi Jenna - I have 6st 9lbs to lose, and set myself a long-term target of June 2010. However fellow CD friends reckon Jan/Feb is acheivable. I started CD SS+ this week. Keep going through the first couple of days - yesterday was not too good with headache and feeling a bit shaky - today is a different story altogether, I feel great, no headache and already can tell and difference! Good luck - keep me posted. Tracey
