    In your first week you will probably lose the most - I lost 3lb the first week I did ww but my friend lost 8lb so it varies but if you aim for 1-2 lb a week then you should get there in 2-3 months. :thumbup:

    agree!!:thumbup:

    this is a sensible and managable rate of weight loss and will mean that you are more likley to keep it off rather than a fad or crash diet!!

    good luck

    Heya,

    I started WW a month ago and have lost 12.5 lbs so far. I lost 5.5 lbs in the first week and then 1-2 lbs steadily after that! I recommend it. I don´t go to meetings or do it online as I live in Spain. When I went back to UK my mum gave me the book etc and taught me how it works and I just stick to it!

    Good luck! :hugs:

    A binge night can undo your calorie deficit for the entire week. The whole point of WW is to learn how to eat healthy and work "treats" into your weekly plan without resorting to binging.

    No weight loss in one week is 100% normal, you can't expect to lose 1-2lbs each week as a "rule", just be patient :)

    the new WW pro points means you can have a 'binge' and still lose (as long as you don't go too over board!!)

    you have 49 extra points per week ( in addition to daily allowance) to spread over the week for treats or use in one go on a 'binge' .

    I went out for a 3 course meal with wine last night; I used my 49 weekly points and some exercises points gained over the week; I am still under my weekly total so on course to lose this week!!

    I see what you mean... although I think when you have points available for a planned treat meal (I call them treat meals!), it is different than what some would call a "binge" - to me, a "binge" is just a night of falling of the wagon. Your extra points can leave room for wine, dessert, dinner etc... but still 'within plan', and still in an overall deficit which is the healthy eating that WW promotes.

    To me, and maybe I misunderstood OP, a binge is just an all out food fest without thought and encompasses overeating in a negative way.

    I save my weekly points and exercise ones so that one day a week me and OH can go out for dinner or lunch and I don´t have to stress about it! and i´ve steadily lost every week so far, and i´ve found that now i don´t even want to binge. I used to have a massve sweet tooth but now i don´t even eat chocolate bars because I´d much rather eat something sweet that fills me up and doesnt make me use like 8 or 9 points!!

    Good luck girls, we´ll get there :hugs:

    if you are doing the ww points tracking on line, there is a section for exercise.
    you enter how much you have done in minutes and the intensity high , medium or low and it calculates how many exercise points you have 'earned'

    they are added to your daily total and weekly allowance. You can choose to eat them or save them for a weekend curry or takeaway not bother eating them.

    If you are doing lots of exercise eg training for a run you will need to eat the extra points to sustain this
