2 weeks? I’m not asking if this is healthy or if it’ll last…I don’t care if I gain it all back I just want to know if it’s possible.

If you limit your calories like crazy, probably.
Definitely not healthy and you probably won't feel very good.

If you want to do this in a healthy way then just exercise 5 days and sweat out the water weight. You will probably gain it back unless you keep exercising.

Also, eat very healthy and try a vegetarian diet for those 2 weeks. Add in fiber to every meal - fruits vegetables.

but you probably had a lot to lose? I only lose 1 pound a week on weight watchers even in the beginning.

I lost 25 lbs in 6 months. But the biggest loss was in those first 2 weeks.
After 25 lbs I was at my goal weight. I started about a year after my 4th kid was born and it was all the excess weight from each pregnancy, but it wasn't like I was crazy overweight to start with.
This though was on their old program. I tried it again recently and hated the new program, quit after a week

Same! I liked the old program better! I wish they still had it as an option.

I lost 15 lbs in 1 month, I went walking for 40 min 4 times a week, and drank mostly coffee, ate sliced cheese chumus etc no carbs. I would weigh myself every morning. It takes tons of self control.

I once lost 8 pounds in a week. The worst week of my life. I was in so much emotional pain I was basically starving myself. I kept it off for about a year after that. And I wasn’t overweight. Losing those 8 pounds brought me down to a small size 2.

Yes, but I was sick. It was beyond awful and I wouldn't wish it on anyone!
Wishing everyone good health and healthy body perspectives.

With the ball diet (Sadkhin) you probably can depending on your weight.

I lost 9 pounds in 2 weeks when I was by a special dietician. Years ago.
Since then, I'm happy with 7 pounds off in 2 weeks. It's definitely possible!

I lost that and more multiple times. Lost 10/wk on fad diets. There was one I tried as a teen that was specific menu that guaranteed 15lbs in two weeks (don’t recall the menu but it worked every time) and I’ve lost up to 25 in two weeks. Yes I have a lot to lose.

Sure, and I've lost more than that, also.

It's called hyperemesis gravidarum, or HG for short. You should try it. Lasts until month 5 or 6 of your pregnancy and knocks you out of commission, and eats your muscles.

If weight is that important to you, I highly suggest you try HG. You don't even have to try to diet, it'll come naturally - you won't want to eat anything, and if you do try to eat, you'll puke it up (at least for the first few months).

[Sorry for the sarcasm, I lost 14 kilo since before Pesach, finally stopped losing, and then lost another kilo somehow in the past month. Losing weight fast has become a touchy topic and pet peeve for me.]

I lost that years ago on weight watchers
First week was about 3 pounds. Second week around 1.5 pounds and then every week there was a small loss between a half a pound to 1 pound… once in a while the weight loss would be a drop more or a drop less. eventually I lost 25 pounds in 6 months.
I tried doing it again but I’m older and my metabolism has slowed down. In addition I found myself constantly cheating. The first time I lost I was single. Now I’m in a house with kids and lots of different types of food and it’s much harder to stay on track. I still believe weight watchers works the best if you stick with it. It’s not a diet. It’s a food plan. Lots of choices. You don’t starve or feel deprived. Obviously thousands of people are losing or they wouldn’t have such a thriving business.
