Or should I aim for 14 pounds

Depends on your starting weight and what you plan to do...

No sugar, limited all dairy bread and foods with flour. Seriously limit your use of oils/fat for cooking.

Fill up on veg and fruit and get active.

You might not get two stone but 14 to 20 is doable.

What's the hurry?

I've lost 5 pounds in the last two weeks by doing the above. I've still eaten bread/cheese but it's limited.

What's your currrent weight and what's happening in 10 weeks' time that's caused you to want to shed some lbs?

10 weeks on the 5:2 diet should enable you to lose more than a stone and won't lead to you missing out on all of the tasty treats on offer during the festive season.

You know 14lb is one stone right? So you'd be looking at 28lb over 10 weeks.

Safe weight loss is 1-2lb a week. I'd say you'd be pushing it tbh.

I have. For my wedding. I've gaine 1.5 stone back now though, 6 months later. Not healthy at all. But I was happy on my wedding day u guess...

I'm aiming to lose weight slowly and healthily now

I lost 3 stone in 2 weeks, giving birth to twins can do that to a person! grinD

If you restrict calories and stick to the allowed calories (probably around 1200 unless you're very tall, very fat or very active) religiously, you'll probably lose a fair chunk in the first week or so. I believe it's water that is lost as you deplete your glycogen stores, but I could be wrong. I lost 7 lbs in a week when I first started on a calorie deficit.

I'd say 14 lbs is easily doable, 28 lbs perhaps not.

I did, recently. Kept it off too. But I have a lot to lose and it comes off more easily when there is a lot to go. It's only 2-3lbs a week, it's not exactly a dangerous rate to lose it at.

I'd say it depends on your starting weight…the heavier you are to start the more weight is likely to come off initially. I would say it's entirely possible yes, but you'd be likely to pile it back on if you lost 28lbs that quickly.

As of today I lost 33lbs in 15 weeks so you could do it but you'd have to be strict.

What's your plan?

I've lost 6lb in 2 weeks by following WW and eating sensibly (no faddy cutting our foods) and exercising

I have always exercised but think I compensated by eating too much food!

I've just lost 2 and a half stone in 10 week on slimming world and gym 4 times a week smile

Yes, it can be done, i have done it. You need a pretty decent calorie deficit. I've done it on Cambridge diet but it is no doubt possible to do it on other diets too. If you "only" have 2 stone to lose it might not be possible, as you are a lower weight to start with than someone bigger who will tend to lose weight faster. But yes it absolutely is possible.
