    I lost 10 but men always tend to lose more, in fact in our group the same guy gets slimmer of the week everyweek.

    I lost 3 and a half my first week this time round, but last time (about 10 years ago) I lost 7 in my first week.

    Not so much this time I think because I was already having skimmed milk, no butter, diet drinks etc. But my weight loss has been good and steady since I started in October

    I lost 5lbs my first week, which I was chuffed to bits with. I've never lost as much in one go since, but have been a steady 1-2lb gal (ignoring christmas!)
    I have 2½ stone to lose.

    Good luck, keep it up!

    You need to speak to NorthernBoi. I'm pretty sure that he has had huge losses.
    A friends OH was doing SW and he lost 14lbs in one week! It's pretty well known that men generally lose weight quicker than women.

    I lost 5 1/2 pounds last year when I joined. I rejoined last week and have lost 5 1/2 this time too, which I'm very pleased about.

    I lost 6lb in my first week.

    I haven't really had that many HUGE losses, although I regularly loose 2-4lbs, I'm not one of those people who manage 6-7lb losses.

    Slow but steady wins the race! I could have lost much quicker but I use flexible syns fortnightly or so, and go through about 80 syns on a night out when I do! Those weeks, I only loose 1lb or so.

    Loosing 3lb a week and 4lb every now and again, achievable for most men, is a stone a month: a realistic target on SW for a bloke with quite a bit to loose.

    I think it all depends on how much you have to loose. I lost 3lbs in my first week but other people have had huge losses - a man in my group who has quite a lot to loose did 13lbs in his first week. Good Luck!!

    I lost 4.5 lbs my first week. When I was in my 20's (in the mists of time!) I would lose 7lbs, but that entailed very little food!800 cal diets were the rage then! I must say that SW actually gives me the most consistent and best losses I've ever had, and I'm never hungry. What I need to do now is keep going!
