In fact, while WW is designed to deliver a healthy, safe and sustainable rate of weight loss of 1-2lbs a week – because research proves that smaller, consistent losses are more likely to result in successful long term weight loss – don’t be surprised if, like Leah, you see more in your first few weeks.
Weight Watchers is one of those programs that is going to offer results within a short period while helping to create a lifestyle change. The one question most people have is how much weight can you lose with the program in 3 months? In general, you can lose 4-8 pounds per month or 12-24 pounds every 3 months.
You might be following the WW program perfectly but if you are eating too many calories for your body, you aren’t going to lose weight. Weight loss seems complex but at its most basic level it’s super-simple. If you are stuck and not losing weight, it’s because somewhere, somehow, you are eating too many calories.
Along the way, the program adopted a “points” system to help make it easier to track calories (35 Points per day was about 1900 calories, and Point limits were assigned to individuals depending upon their age, gender, height, and weight).
At a weight loss rate of ½ -1 pound per week, it will likely take you at least 20 weeks to lose 20 pounds. Losing weight at this pace is safe and will help you keep the weight off long term. To accomplish a weight loss of ½ – 1 pound per week, try to burn an extra 250-500 calories per day by walking.
Mostly, losing weight is an internal process. You will first lose hard fat that surrounds your organs like liver, kidneys and then you will start to lose soft fat like waistline and thigh fat. The fat loss from around the organs makes you leaner and stronger.
