86 days.....42 lbs. If you are just beginning, depending on your weight, you may be able to do it.

First time, 95 lbs. in ten months. Second time, 20 lbs. in two months. Third times a charm, right? I hope so. Had some huge family trauma, quit going the last time (even signed up again when that time ran out but never went back). We have since moved across country, I've gained 50 back. Starting over. I kept it off for five years the first time. The key is that you have to stay on top of it forever. I lost track of that unfortunately.

I have lost 53 lbs. in just a little over 4 months. However, this is not my first weight loss. I have done this a couple of times before and losing has always been the easiest part for me, it's the maintaining that's always gotten me. Hopefully this time around I have learned a lot more about maintenance and can stick with it.

It amazes me how different we all are, my average is a pound a week, every once in a while I will loose 2, but those are few and far between. But the important thing according to my doc anyway is - slow and steady.

65 lbs between Aug 09 to Jan 10 (5 months), and back to it and now moving down again!

14.5 pounds in 39 days. :-) It comes off .5 to 1 pound at a time, but a loss is a loss. I am looking to lose weight, not change overnight. You can do it!

18 pounds in 6 weeks. so far lost 25 inches and my fat % is down quite a bit (although I don't remember right off the top of my head).

20.5 lbs in 1.7months (51 days total).

It's slowing down a bit now, but it's mostly my own fault--going off plan here and there.

I'm averaging around 1-1.5 pounds lost per week. With a up some, down some pattern. One month in, I'm down 4 pounds (up a 1/2 on weigh in this week) and they say I've lost 16 inches and my tanita reading showed body fat down a few percentage points but I'm not sure how true that is. My clothes aren't that much looser.

The person I had for this last weigh in I had never had before and I didn't really care much for her. I mentioned that I didn't expect to be down given that I was on vacation the week before and didn't stay completely on plan..I did my best but eating out for every meal for 4 days makes it challenging. I also mentioned that I would be happy as long as I keep losing about a pound a week. She was all, "Well, you'll have to lose more than that or you won't make your goal." OK, whatever, I'd still be ok with a pound a week as it's more than I was getting on my own. Then she asked me if I needed more product. I told her no..she started counting things up. I told her I had supplies from elsewhere. She didn't much like that at all. Guess I"ll have to buy some token product from the center rather than getting it all online.

I have NEVER gotten that pushy guilt job from my center. When you tell them you don't need anything, and that should be that! Don't let anyone, not anyone, force you to do something that isn't necessary.

I have lost 85 lbs in 5 months. I think that my body has reached a plateau because over the past couple weeks my losses have been less than usual and sometimes I haven't lost anything. I have lost 67.25 inches though so it might be my body just trying to catch up with this huge loss. I don't really like plateaus but if this is necessary for my body then I'm fine with it.

I just started MRC and do my first weigh in tomorrow. Wish me luck. I'm on the preconditioning menu, any suggestions on being hungry late afternoon/early evenings? I'm finding that while I'm making dinner I'm having a hard time staying focused and not munching. It would be great to hear different things you all ate during this time.

I just finished pc on friday and if I got hungry I would munch on some raw veggies between meals, waldon farms creamy bacon was great to dip my mushrooms or cauliflower in :)

WOW!! It seems like you have ALL had lots of success! I paid for 17 weeks and just did not commit fully.. now I am preconditioning again and plan on trying to loose as much as I can. What about exercising? Have you lost without it?
Thanks for all your help!!;)

Thanks for the suggestions....this is my 3rd day, doing good through out the day but man by the time I get home, I'm starving. I will try the veggie idea. How long have you been on the program?

I have lost 64lbs over the last year on my own doing weight watchers. I did excercise during that time but not a ton. I'm frustrated and need some accountability to lose the rest of my weight. Currently, I'm doing aerobics 2 times a week and Zumba 2 times a week.....we'll see if that kicks it. I've read that excercise is 30% of weight loss and food is 70%....don't know if its accurate but something to think about. Good luck!

Snacking on veggies or cheese sticks helps. I was starving and miserable during my preconditioning--I was so close to giving up, worried that I would be starving all the time for 17 weeks.

But it gets better! The protein supplements, portioning, and timing of the meals helps a lot once you start on your actual menu. I promise. :)

Ok, so I cheated a little.. I ate some chips with bean dip..:mad: Not a huge amount but a couple handfuls.. and for some reason after I ate sirloin steak lastnight, which is on plan.. i felt like i cheated..I am afraid the combo of both is going to set me back.. just when i lost 4.5 in preconditioning in 4 days..
WHAT TO DO??

I started MRC at the very end of April 2010. I've lost 42.5 lbs since then. I've never lost very quickly. I feel like I adhere to the program well. Even though it is taking me longer than most...I am THRILLED with my total weight loss. I haven't been able to have this amount of success in over 11 years!
My weight loss is better when I do exercise.
I also wonder if age is a factor in the speed of weight loss. I'm turning 41 in month.
Yay to everyone!!!

From September 6th, 11 pounds and 20 1/4 inches. I seem to be in a stall now, but it will turn around , I am sure. You can do it, just stay focused and on program. This is a great group for motivation.

I lose maybe 1 pound a week, not the 2-3, but as long as it is something, that is towards my goal. I am happy with it.

Good luck to you.

You might be on to something. I turn 41 in December also and my loss has also been on the slow side.

Age plays a factor in this, no doubt about it. Weight used to fall off of me when I would diet, now it comes off sooooo slow. I also can feel my metabolism slowing form the program. Since mid june I have lost a little over 50. I started on South Beach, and after a couple of weeks realized I need more structure. I am hoping to get to onderland by my cruise on Dec 3, we are going for a three day cruise. I don't think it will be possible but I am going to try. I do know I will not be on program while on vacation and will have to deal with a gain when I come back. I have been dragging my feet with the exercise but I am definately starting a plan when I get back.

I lost 90lbs in 9 months in 2007. Then lost 50 in 6 months here in 2010. MRC totally works if you stick to it :) Good luck on your goals.
