4 lbs (and 4 lbs the second week) - felt very pleased with myself - I followed the plan exactly and had no more than 5 or 6 Syns most days. sometimes no Syns.

12 lb. First week weigh in was last night and I'm still gobsmacked.

Verso Tue 23-Feb-16 08:06:52

Jellybean what's your secret to consistent 3lb losses? I'm worried that after such a ludicrous start I will stall for a few weeks...

Muskateersmummy Tue 23-Feb-16 08:12:37

Half a lb.... But went on to lose nearly 3 stone.

5.5 lb the first week and 12 lb in the second. Haven't completed a third week yet.

That's amazing Naked

I'm amazed and the amount of high losses.

I only lost 1.5lbs my first week, next week 3.5 and last week 1.5. I've been sticking to plan 100%

KatieT12 Tue 23-Feb-16 12:25:24

My consultant said you can go into double figures in your first week! Crazy! Blizy - I think it depends how much free food you eat. Yes, you're allowed unlimited, but that depends on how much you want to lose each week, so you will still lose eating unlimited free food, but obviously less, the more you eat

Verso - hope that's me on Thursday wink it won't be

In my experience, big losses come if you make dramatic changes (eg cut all full fat dairy to fat free) as well as following the plan. If you're already 'trying' or 'dieting' you probably won't see those whopping first week losses. Its misleading of any consultant to say that you will/could. Also, if you are only having 5 syns a day and sometimes having none, then you aren't following the plan 100%- in order to get 3lb losses every week in my experience (5 years) you must be 100% on plan which means: weighing all syns and healthy extras every time, cutting all fat off all meat before you cook it (even a roast chicken) , have 1/3 speed veg with every meal (and all second portions too!), finding F and S symbols and working those foods in regularly, using your syns and not 'saving' or 'banking' them for the weekend. Most people don't do this after the first few weeks which his why weight losses trail off to 1/2 or 1 lb a week. Even if you do do all these things, its unlikely you'll lose 3lb dry week though. I hate to say it and will probably get grief for this, but even though sw promotes the 'not a diet' ethos, in order to have big, consistent weight losses you have to still be quite strict. For me this involves all of the above, plus I don't eat Muller's, hi fis, mugshots, or fruit. I've lost 1.5 stone since Jan and have 2 stone left to go.

Katenka Tue 23-Feb-16 12:58:52

I think my larger losses (12lb in 3 weeks) come from the fact that do SP 3 or 4 days a week.

I don't get my Syns in each day. I don't hit 15 at all. Because I don't feel I need them. I do have Yorkies when I really feel like it and a take away each week but, make sure I make choices that come in under Syns.
