    Hi everyone, Just got back from my second weigh in 4lbs off. I think I should be happy with that but i'm not. I lost 11lbs on my first weigh in, my daughter who is doing it with me says 15 lbs in 2 weeks is fab. Is that about the norm? or am I being to optimistic?

    Over a stone in 2 weeks, i`d be jumping up and down, the average is a stone a month.
    Don`t forget that you usually lose more on the first week of most diets.

    WELL DONE !!!!
    Also try not to compare your losses to everyone elses, I used to but we all lose differently.

    15lbs in two weeks is fabulous. The first week is almost always a much higher loss than subsequent weeks.

    Dont feel down you are doing very well.

    Be Happy - if you aren't happy with that kind of loss then I would say you are never going to be happy! Celebrate - have a glass of water (sparkling of course!)

    Hi Carol,

    Don't know if you remember but we both started last week and last week I lost 10lbs and have just weighed in and have lost another 3lb which I was initially disappoined with, but when I look at the bigger picture of 13lbs in two weeks its fab really, so I reckon we should be proud of ourselves, well done to you!!:eek::eek::eek:

    You have to remember that your first weeks loss includes the depletion of your glycogen stores, which is why we have such a large first week weight loss.

    A loss of 4lb's is a fantastic amount to lose in one week - and that is a true loss of fat, not something you can really say about your first weeks loss. Look at it this way, 3 months (13 weeks) at 4lb's a week is 52lb's - nearly 4 stone! So by the start of the summer, if you continue with these sorts of losses you will be nearly at goal.

    How fab does that sound:D

    I would say it's better than normal. Don't forget the amount you weigh reflects how much you weigh too - if you are heavier you will lose more.

    Congrats xx

    Def def def not sad - over 1 stone in a fortnight brillo.... Better than me hun, I think that's something to be proud of. Give yourself a huge pat on the back - just think you've done the hardest part, the first 2 weeks, next time you check you'll have been doing this a month!

    Well done Carol xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
