    Well ,it varies person to person, week to week and depends on what works for you. I used to go to WW but find SW fits in much easier with my busy lifestyle :D

    Indeed it does vary from person to person. SW says the average is between one and two pounds a week. Some people lose a lot more, depending on metabolisms and how much they need to lose.
    I am a slow(ish) loser but I am more than happy with my weight loss.
    One thing to remember, though, SW is not a diet, but a healthy way of eating for life.
    It easily fits into daily life with minimum restrictions. It is not, however, one of those lose weight fast diets, where you gain the weight loss really quickly as soon as you eat normally.

    I lost 12.5 lbs in 5 weeks, doing extra easy. Would have been more if i hadnt gone to an all-you-can-eat Chinese buffet!

    You can see my weight losses on my chart below. As you can see they are slow but steady with the odd gain here or there. However, I don't really feel like I'm on a diet as I don't go hungry and I thoroughly enjoy everything that I eat. I might be able to speed up things by not saving syns for alcohol at the weekend, but I don't want to give that up.

    However, that slow and steady loss has added up to nearly 2.5 stone and I feel really great. I've got another 1.5 stone to lose and I know that I will do it. I've never succeeded at dieting before because I've always ended up miserable. With SW I'm still really happy after nine months on it and looking forward to all the new recipes I still have to try.

    It does vary from person to person! I joined on 1st Oct and have lost 7.5lb but that is my own fault. Messing about each week and not going to weigh in for 2 whole weeks and then finding I had gained over a pound. My friend how ever joined 3 weeks ago and lost 7.5lb in her first week and 5.5lb in her second week!!

    The more you have to lose the easier it seems to be. My weight is shifting really slowly now(roughly 1-2 lb each month) but when I started it was more like 4lbs each month. Even though the weight loss for me is slow my shape is still changing and I continue to need new smaller clothes. i would recommend you give it a go. what have you got to lose other than unwanted pounds Good luck

    I lost 5.5lb on my first week last week which was a shock to be honest. I'll be happy with 0.5 - 2lb a week from now on.

    I agree that the more you need to lose, the quicker you will lose it. I have lost 3st in 14 weeks, but I have a lot to lose.....

    I tend to find that following red days achieves bigger losses, but that could be just me, as everyone is different.

    Good Luck

    I lost 11 in first week then gained 1/2 as we went away but lost it again last week. I have followed Original this week with one Green day mixed in so looking forward to see if I have a loss this week...fingers crossed.
    Everyone is different but as long as the losses stay off and are consistant we will all reach our goals. Remember 1 lb a week is nearly 4 stone in a year!

    sw is not one of the diets where u lose loads at great speed, because its normal food, eating plenty and living a normal life. Took me a while to get my head around losing only a lb a week and being content with that but now i have i seem to lose 1-2b a week and eat loads. much ebtter for me than eating nothing, drink vile shakes and losing fast, only to learn nothing at the end and pile it back on. doh!

    I lost 4lbs in my first week, then after that it's been 1-2lbs a week, with a couple of 3lbs here and there. 1lb might not seem a lot, but google '1lb of fat' on their images - it still shocks me now!
