    Thumbs down SS - Week 2 - Not losing!!!

    Okay, so I'm on day 12 today on SS, been 100% everyday however since my last weigh in I have only lost 1 pound!! What the hell! I'm having three shakes a day, no food, feeling like **** and all for one pound. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong, you guys all do so fabulously and I am totally stuck here. In fact since yesterday I've actually regained a pound despite weighing myself at the same time!

    Also I'm feeling quite bloated in the evenings, is this normal? And could it contribute to the weight on the scales? Is there anything to be done to combat this?

    I seriously don't know what to do, I can't keep doing SS 100% and not losing, this is only week two! Do you think something might be wrong with me?

    Trying to get to 10st on the Cambridge Diet!

    Weigh in week One: - 8lbs
    Weigh in week Two: - 4lbs 06/03/14
    Weigh in week Three: - 2lbs (naughty day ) 13/03/14

    Nothing wrong with you. Your body is adjusting to being on the diet. You will go through peaks and troughs, you need to think long term.

    As for feeling bloated, some people say they suffer if they eat too late. I take fibre to help with trips to the loo and the bloating hasn't bothered me.

    I am on week 8 and am disappointed when the scales don't move for a few days, however, I never put weight on and eventually it does shift.

    Keep going! If you are finding SS too difficult I can recommend SS+, I changed in week 2 and don't feel it has affected my losses.

    Stick with it. I have weeks where in 5 days I lose nothing then boom I lose loads over a few days. Weighing everyday is lethal. Just remember you will lose weight on this diet, it does work. What did you lose in week 1?

    Wk 1 -8lb
    Wk2 -6lb
    Wk3 -3lb
    Wk4 -4lb
    Wk5 -3lb
    Wk6 -3lb
    Wk7 -3lb
    Wk8 -STS :-(
