My average overall is 2.8 pounds/week. However, for the first several months, the average was over 4 lbs/week. I tend to lose in spurts. None one week, 4 the next, etc. I weigh myself every day and have learned not to stress about it.

If you follow the plan, the weight will come off.

This is my 17th week on the plan and my losses have averaged at 2.7 pounds a week. I find that awesome!! Every week is different but I haven't had a complete stall yet. I know as I get closer to goal the losses will slow down, but the pounds will come off!!

My first week I lost about 9 lbs. Then it went down to 5, and now at 5 weeks I am averaging about 3. I'm told 2-5 is average for women and men are usually slightly higher. Good luck and cheers! :buddies:

Hang in there!!! :hug: Remember the company bbq success!!!

I lost a bunch my first week, then only a pound the second week. After that, I think I'm averaging 2-3 lbs a week. And for some unknown reason, I almost always show a GAIN on Monday mornings.

Sometime's, there's not a loss to show numerically, but I FEEL so much better than I did pre-Medifast that at times I consider the weight loss kind of a nice byproduct.

My migraines have reduced tremendously, I'm off preventatives for those SUCCESSFULLY for the first time in 13 years. (I used to get 2 to 5 a week of varying intensities.) My nurse remarked that I just LOOK brighter. I know my mood is much better, and my wit is sharpening back up. AND I've got more energy than my body can handle at times!!

My advice, for the $0.02 it's worth: Stay off the scale for a while. Look for other ways your life is improving because of this undertaking. Focus on something else; then when you least expect it, you'll wake up 3 lbs lighter!

If that doesn't work, we'll all come lift up on the scale a bit when you step on.

Here's to our mutual success! :buddies:

I'm averaging 4.2lbs a week for the last 21 weeks. Right now, I'm at a 2-3 lbs a week, which I'm very happy with at this point. The inches are still falling off as my body thins down and muscle mass increases. It's an amazing porcess. Don't get discouraged, stick with the plan and you WILL be successful !!

It fluctuates for me, but I lose 2 pounds a week on average on the 5 & 1. I'm really happy about my rate of loss on this program.

I am in my second week now as well. I lost 5 pounds the first week, but so far only 2 this week :( Tomorrow will be two weeks and I know I will be sad to only see a 2 pound loss.

Aunt Flo did come to visit, so that could be preventing a loss too.

I guess it's better than nothing- I was on Weight Watchers for a month and was going to the gym 4-5 times a week doing strict cardio- and lost ZERO!
