Hello girls and guys, I have almost completed week three of SS, lost 10lbs wk 1, 2lbs wk 2, and so far 3lbs week three (my weigh in is tomorrow).

To be honest I was expecting a little more I have had a couple of hickups, totm and a rotten cold!:(

Just wondered if I continue between now and Christmas, with one week of aam, what do you think is the maximum I am likely to loose.
I am so desperate, we have a family gettogether (oh family) on the 28th of December, and I wanted to loose as much as possible.
I kind of expected 5lb a week! after week one, I know my average is 5lbs over the three weeks, but I was counting on having lost 20lbs + by now!
I know every body is different, mine just seems too efficient at holding on to the fat!:confused:
I have been really good, not cheated and been drinking 3-4 litres of water only a day.
I am I worrying for nothing? is it still early days?
Some positive stories would be nice :sign0009:

Loving the Cambridge Diet
The weight loss will be around 3/4lbs per week and no more.

Some people do manage 4/5lbs it is true.

Cambridge say 14lbs per Calendar Month

Hope all goes well for you - don't be disheartened, enjoy the weight loss!

You're doing really well so far-when I did LL I averaged about 5lbs a week, but had odd weeks when I lost 3 and even only 1, but I lost 5st12 in 14 weeks so was very happy.I'm just hoping it'll be as fast this time round, but even if it isn't, it still comes off a darn sight quicker than with any other diet I've ever tried.
they say the average on SS is a stone per month which is more than any other diet and you are already past that in 3 weeks! You've done really well! You really need to look at the loss in 4 week chunks as one week you can lose next to nothing and then the following week a whole load!

I am sure that you can get a good few pounds more off before christmas and everyone will notice. You've got off to a fantastic start and the journey will go quicker than you think xx
I think the more you weigh, the more you loose in the beginning.

But everyone is different. For me it's important that i loose more than with any other diet.
