Is it polite to ask?

Postby Honey Child » January 24th, 2007, 9:37 am

I know that everyone loses weight at a different pace & that you can't gage your weight loss by others.......

But I am really wondering what most of you generally average per week?
I have my first week weigh in this Saturday and am hoping for at least a 3lb loss. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

I hate to say it, but you will find those who are 100 percent compliant losing 2 per week, and others 5 per week...try and I say try cause it's hard, instead of saying I want to lose x amount by next week , say I will comply this week.. If you will do the program you will lose. You want to lose right? This will work for you, big numbers are hot but ANY loss is a loss and while it may not be all you wanted to lose, be happy you don't have to lose it again.

I lost 11 lbs week 1, this week I will be just as happy losing 1 lb...it's the no movement that I fear, but that happens too, talk to Dede, queen of the patient plateau.

Numbers can let you down...comply sister, comply....but should your scale happen to be difficult, call 1800GUIDO, the scale buster :lol:

Weight loss is dependent upon lots of things and remember it's not linear. Very seldom do we part with exactly the same amount each week.... some weeks a bit more ... some weeks less.
Ok here's some things that can affect weight loss. First of all the amount you have to lose. The more you have the more you'll part with the first week. We burn fat not muscle . Body composition is next ... some of us have more muscle .. some less. Muscle burns calories. Water affects weight loss... if you don't drink enough .. you won't lose as fast. There are lots of other things too .. lack of sleep .. stress etc. I guess the bottom line is this .. if you are very very compliant on program, and drink allll your water you can be sure you are parting with the pounds in the safest and faster manner for you. :D

There is also another big actor in the weekly weight - SALT. 2 grms of salt can hold onto up to 2-3 pints of water depending on the potassium levels.

If you have had a salty boullion drink or anything else which is massivel salty (soda water for example) then the old body hangs onto a massive pound and a quarter for each pint of extra water.

You might think you haven'tlost anything when in fact you have lot fat but the water is showing you as heavier.

A body fat scale like Tanita is a good way to show if youy are losing fat when the scales don't show a loss.

Kind regards

Wow! I've been adding salt to the soups/stew. I'm kind of a salt-a-holic you might say. :oops: I think I am going to abstain from the added salt for several days and see what happens ...

I always added salt as needed. You can use other things, but sometimes a little S&P is all it takes.....the beef stew is a great example of that.

Yep, I add salt too. The salt thing is another thing that people react differently too. If you're prone to retaining water, salt is a culprit. I've always been fortunate that salt does not affect me that way. I only tend to retain water around that time o da month!

Sydney_Gavin, I had to :roflmao: crack up when you mentioned water retention and Tanita scales...I didn't realize what our grandson did yesterday when he was doinking around with our bathroom scales.

He is 19 months old and his Mum is preggers and concerned about weight gain. She leaps on the scale daily and he sees her doing so. Yesterday he was spending the day at our home and while I was in the WC, Nick stood on the scale, pushed the buttons and did all the things curious and curiouser little people do.

This morning when my husband got on the scale, he said, "oh no! I shrunk and I weigh something :nana: weird - like really weird, Nance. I weigh 11 something!"

:shock: I got on, Gulp! I weighed 9 something. I got down on my hands and knees and peered at the numbers up-close and personal like. We weighed in 'st' and 'pd' Hah! We were metric! We got weighed in stones and pounds!

Nick pushed the buttons, reduced Terry's height by an inch and switched us from pounds to stones.

I rather like weighing 9 something! :wave:

Thats even better than saying your weight on the moon. You only divide by 6 for the moon. In stone you divide by 14.
Ahhh, those Brits might have something there.

Ooh, Mike - I think we've got somethin' here...maybe anti-gravity scales! :bounce:

I love your sense of humour (note the British spelling) and I look forward to seeing you in the Thin next weekend.
