I'm just wondering how many lbs people lose per week... and are able to keep off. I know everyone is different and losses it at different rates... I'm just curious :)
Oh, and please include your total goal, so the numbers can be put into perspective.

An average of 0.3lbs, so far.

I am fairly aggressive on the exercise routine and often times blow my diary. When its all said and done over 5 months it equals out to 2 lbs per week.

I am losing between .5 to 1 lb per week. I am not lowering my calories as dramatically as what they have on here (I am taking in 1700) as I am diabetic and my blood sugars drop to drastically. But I feel slow and steady wins the race! :O)

My husband says any weight good weight loss! :O)

Today marks day 50 for me using MFP. I have lost a little over 13lbs. I'm averaging around 2lbs a week. However, some weeks I don't lose anything and the first 7lbs came off the first 2 weeks. I am trying to focus more on my day to day eating and not get hung up on the scale. Even if the weight comes off incredibly slow, it still seems to be coming off. drinker

2lb per week for about 10 months. 86 pounds so far

I average 1.5 lbs per week. Some weeks a little more, some a little less, but in 14 weeks I have lost 21 lbs.

49 lbs to go!

I have lost 9 lbs in 7 weeks, so about an average of 1.29 pounds per week. I have about 15 more to lose. I hope to reach my final goal by mid-summer.

2 so far but it has only been one week of exercise with eating right so lets see. happy

Between 1 and 2 lbs a week... In 3 months I have lost 14 lbs, not alot but only 17 more to go - slow and steady wins the race!

Fresh out of a plateau, but back to about 2lbs per week for the last 3 weeks.
FYI: I went over 2 months without losing anything. I decided to change my diet and exercise to begin losing again.

Edited because I think my math was wrong. .5 - 1.5 loss per week. Overall goal 20-25lbs.

I started out losing about a pound every five days but then I stalled out for few weeks. I upped my calories and added new exercise routines and now I'm back on track. I've been on here for a little over 45 days, SW 158, CW 147, GW 130.

I started out at 240.6 lbs, and this week I am at 213.6 lbs. So thats 27 lbs in the last 10 weeks.
So I average out at 2.7 lbs a week.

Usually it is about 2 lbs, but it can vary anywhere from 1.5 lbs - 5 lbs a week.

My first goal is 188, then ultimately 150.

1 to 1.5 per week.....i've lost 26lbs to far out of a 72lbs goal leaving me 46 lbs to go.....
April 23, 2012 1:08 PM
I've lost 27 pounds in 33 weeks... about 0.8 pound loss per week! :)
April 23, 2012 1:10 PM
An average of 1lb. per week. It took me two years to put on weight, so I keep that in mind to stay focused!
April 23, 2012 1:11 PM
25 weeks, 44lbs...1.8lbs a week!! I have been very naughty in between... so i'm very happy with this!!
April 23, 2012 1:11 PM
1 to 2 pounds a week. I have lost 8 and I have 22 more to go.
April 23, 2012 1:12 PM
1-2lbs is the healthiest way possible. the first two weeks of starting exercise can be more like 6-8lbs bc you're losing water weight.
April 23, 2012 1:12 PM
1.5-2 pounds usually. sometimes it goes higher or lower depending on the week.
April 23, 2012 1:14 PM
10 pounds in 100 days, which I find awesome because right now I have MFP set to only lose a half a pound a week and the first week I was in maintenance mode. So in a little over 11 weeks I have lost twice what I was set to lose.
April 23, 2012 1:15 PM
I had 4 months with an average of 0.31/week :( Dumb birth control. Aside from that, I'm currently having a TMI problem so I don't know where my weight is really at right now, but as of my last measurement period it would average out to about 1.25 lb/week
April 23, 2012 1:16 PM
I pretty consistently lose about 2 lbs a week, when I stay on it. For almost the entire month of March I think I lost 2 pounds total, but that was me not sticking to the program.
