1kg a week is amazing! I don't know how much you weigh, but from everything I've read 1kg/2lbs a week is just right. They say the slower you lose it, the more likely it is that you'll keep it off. I think that's really true. It's taken me about a year and a half to lose 2 stone! But you know what, that was with many ups and downs and I really feel like those 2 stone won't be coming back any time soon because this is now my 'normal'. Keep doing what you're doing because it's clearly working emoticon

I understand from what I read that 2 lb in a week is about right.
That's nearly 1 kg.

I think that, if you manage a regular 1kg/2lb each week, you're more likely to realise the why and how, and then manage to keep the weight off in the long term.

I've been receiving spark updates for a while and find them very inspiring and interesting reading.. I've been on my own devised eating plan and whilst I've been losing weight I don't feel I'm doing as well as I should or could be.. I eat 3 maelstrom a day. fruit and fat free yogurt for breakfast.. minced beef and veg hotpot for lunch with veg at the side.. chicken or pork chop for dinner either with salad and very low fat mayo or hot veg or baked beans.. I rarely snack but have a banana or grapes or a low cal hot chocolate if I feel a bit hungry.. I eat no bread very very rarely pasta or potatoes and no cakes or cookies or alcohol.. I've lost around 11.5 kg in 13 weeks.. maybe I'm being impatient or is this about the right pace.. I walk around 40-50 mins each day and try to do another 20 mins on the treadmill when I an but I have an ankle injury.. long term.. which sometimes is just too painful to put any weight on.. should I be changing my diet or is approx 1kg a week about the weight loss I dhould be aiming for..
