    I'm watching this on Sky Real Lives 2...

    A fella on there lost 3.9 kilograms (presumably in a week...Never seen it before)

    Well anyways he was upset with this and wondered why he hadn't done better...

    3.9 kilos is 8lbs!!!!!

    How could you possibly be upset with that?!

    Confused!!!!

    Others had lost 2 - 3 kilos and they are talking about hitting plateau??!!??!!

    In that arena, with the amount of training that they do and the way that their diet is controlled they constantly lose big numbers.
    I watch US, Aus and UK biggest loser and (with the exception of the UK) the contestants always usually seem to lose more in a week than you and I mare mortals ever well, they have their plateaus like the rest of us but generally their weight loss will always be more.

    I do agree though that the Aus ones seem to really seem down when they lose like 3.9kg whereas if this was the US version they'd be punching the ceiling at 8lbs lost in a week. You should see it when they're losing like 10kg in a week. Now that is insane.
