    2.5 is fabulous I wouldn't worry about it :) in the past when I was dieting I always only lost like 2 lbs in my first week & was envious if everyone else. Every diet & everyone is different :)

    I only lost 3lb in my first week, I really thought i would loose more every one say saying "oh you'll loose like 6lbs the first week, i lost 8lbs in my first week etc"

    made me feel like 3lbs wasnt good enough Until my friend who looses a steady 1-2lbs a week that at the end of the day a loss is a loss and if you only loose 2 a week thats over half a stone a month :D

    I put on on my second week i think because i was so done with thinking i wasnt doing it right e.t.c

    did you move from WW to SW or did you have a break from dieting. If you only moved from WW to SW then, no you wont get the big first week loss, you really only get that on your first week on plan after a break etc

    No sadly not, if that was the case we'd be changing diet every week ;)

    If youve just changed diets then its really just like a normal week - SO 2.5lbs is actually a GREAT result :)

    But remember this isnt your 2nd week as such, just like this week wasnt really a week 1

    3lbs is really a bit over ambitious, youd be better aiming for 1 - 2 like SW recommend and if you get 3 then bonus :) If you aim for 3 and get 2 youll be disappointed again and thats when problems start x
