What's YOUR average weekly weight loss?

Postby MissFabulala » Fri Oct 19, 2007 2:14 pm

Hi everyone,

Just wondering what you average weekly weight loss is? And also, what's the biggest loss you have recorded in a week?

i think my biggest loss ever in a week was 4.1kg - that was my first week and thats mainly fluid that everyone loses in the first week.

women are advised to lose between 0.5-1kg a week - for men it is more than that.

some weeks you might gain and some you might lose. if weightloss was easy then we wouldnt be here LOL

presently.. nothing. *sigh*

but previously, best lost was about 3kg when I started - again, I think that's just fluid and a shock to the system when I stopped eating so much junk!

when I lost most of my weight steadily, I shed about 30kg in about 9 months, so thats around a kilo a week? but i had big weeks and little weeks and little gains in there too.. its a funny business, this weight loss thing!

dont forget to take measurements and check those monthly or so, they can reallly show the difference!

Nothing. If I'm lucky 1kg at most.

The harder i work out the less weight I lose and the bigger my legs and bum get...hehehe. But don't worry it's a good thing.

Biggest loss have been around 1.3kg when I started. On average, around 300gm per week :? Oh well, slow and steady, right?

My biggest loss was 2.3kgs in a week, but on average it's 0.5 to 1kg a week. I find though that with the bigger losses they are generally followed by no loss or a small loss the next week. Probably water like the others have said.

I had the same. In my first few weeks I lost and gained over 8kg!!! :roll: When I was rolling on my 35kg loss, I was averaging about 1kg a week give or take. I've come to a standstill over the past year but it's moving again and I expect a 1kg loss per week if I'm going to lose anything.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

The most loss in a week is 2-3Kg once was over 4 - 5 like kate that was once when I detoxed. But now looking at .5Kg to 1KG loss a week if there isnt no change or a gain.

I have been trying for half a kg a week sometimes it works and sometimes I loose more, apparently half a kg is the amount that is
safe for me to loose weekly. Sometimes especially around TTOM LOL I don't loose anything ! So its pretty hard to make an average for myself. As long as I'm loosing or maintaining I'm happy, though I don't want to loose alot at once just in case I'm loosing muscle tone. I hope that makes sense :)

i think probably 2 or 3kg would have been the biggest weightloss i've had in a week but in saying that, 2 weeks after i had my daughter i was 12kg lighter :D . I usually lose 0.3- 1.5kg a week depending on how many calories i eat a day and exercise done.
