What's your average weight loss per week?

Junior Low-Carber



The first few weeks I lost 3-4 pounds a week and now it's slowed down to about 1-2 pounds per week. I'm happy with any weight loss but, considering I have so much to loose, I thought it might go quicker. Is my experience typical?

I will have been doing this 18 weeks on Thursday and I've lost 45 pounds, so 2.5 pounds per week. The beginning was more like 3-4 and I've had a couple of no loss or under 1 pound loss weeks. But for the most part it's plugging away at 2+ per week.

It took me 15 months to lose 58 pounds, which is about a pound a week. At the beginning I lost a lot more each week, and it slowed way down toward the end.

Keep up the good work!

During my weight loss I usually lost 1-2 pounds per week. My loss was slow and steady and I had no stalls. It took me 10 months to lose 50 pounds.

It's typical. Losses will slow down as time progresses. Think of it like you are driving your car down the Interstate: you wouldn't just slam down the gas pedal all the way and then when you reach your destination slam on the brakes. You accelerate, cruise, slow down, and then stop. Everyone's happy, everyone's safe.

The next time someone questions your Low-Carb way of life, and tries to give you "words of wisdom" against it, quote them these words from Michael Scott of NBC's "The Office": "I will swallow what you just said, digest it, and see what comes out the other end."

Losing significant amounts of weight permanently is often a multi-year project. Be patient.

You can lose more quickly, but then you have only learned how to eat to lose weight and not how to navigate the day-to-day mine field of modern food.

For the first year of my lifestyle change I lost a little over two pounds per week. I'm still losing but now less than 2 pounds per week.
I've lost 140 in the last 19 months.

About a pound a week for me now, sometimes even less. Then once in a while I'll drop a couple of pounds in a week. And it's not very linear, lots of little ups and downs along the way.

That's amazing! I hope I can be as successful as you've been.
