How much weight do you usually lose in a week (if/when you are trying to lose weight)?

When I have lost weight I rarely ever lose it quickly. I normally lose about half a lb a week. But, really I think that is good because usually when I do it that way it stays off. I can lose it faster, but not a whole lot faster without just flat out starving myself and even then I usually only can lose at the most 2 lbs in a week.

It really depends on the week, most weeks it's 1-2 lbs/week though.

I agree, for me it's usually anywhere between 0.5 and 1.5 lbs per week. I so agree that when you lose it slower it stays off, that's why I don't beat myself up if I lose like 0.3 one week.

I find when the weight loss stalls, I usually trip myself up, eat a little more, or a little less to get the metabolism going, it almost always works.

This past wednesday I was down 4.8 lbs, couldn't believe it, I actually thought I would be the same since I had a 2 lb loss the week before, looked back over my journal, if anything I ate more than usual but I ate more often!

You think the only people who are people, are the people who look and think like you, but if you walk the footsteps of stranger, you'll learn things you knew... you never knew.

Mine's all over the place, it averages out to around 2-2.5 lbs/week. I started with a lot to lose so I think it'll probably slow down as I get closer to a normal weight.

Thanks to Bokkechick for my siggy.

I'm starting at the beginning.. so I'm losing on average 1.7lbs per week... but I've dropped as much as 2.5.

I now have to re-lose the 3 I gained while on my trip... and of course I'm sick so all I want are ice cream and Popsicles. BLAH Hoping the doctor has a solution for my throat

I shoot for .5 lb to 1 lb, but some weeks I lose zero, and some weeks I lose 1.5 lbs.
