    where am i going wrong?

    ive been on total soloution for 5 weeks now and ive stuck to it 100% everyy day
    ive had my 3 packets (shake, bar, soup)
    atleast 2 litres normally 3 litres of water a day
    half hours excersize a day
    but for the last 3 weeks ive only lost 2lbs a week, i know a loss is a loss and should be counted as a plus the thing that is getting to me it if i carry on only loosing 2lbs a week i will only be loosing 8lbs a month instead of the stone that exante say you will loose?

    so ladies and gentleman i am very grateful for my losses dont get me wrong it just seems unfair that i am sticking 100% to this diet and loosing so little?
    help please xx

    Hi mrs c t!

    Exante does help you lose weight fast, however there's no guarantee to lose 1st per month, it's an average but unfortunately not everyone does.

    You say you're exercising, what are you doing, how long and how many days? With exante being a very low calorie diet doing exercise might actually slow your losses. Your body will be trying to hang on to your reserves so it has enough fuel for when your exercising. It sounds a bit backwards but 600cals is mega low, your body will be wondering where all the fuel has gone!

    Perhaps try cutting down, or leaving it altogether for a while? One of the other girls on the forum was following an exercise programme called The Shred, her loss completely stalled while she was doing that, but once she stopped it picked right up again!

    2lbs loss is still a loss, and its better off than on a lot of other diet programmes mean you'd only lose that a month, so 8lbs in a month is still over half a stone and that's something to be very proud of

    Hope you carry on and reach your goal whatever you decide to do

    Xx
    Doing it for myself!

    I read a lot of people who exercised on ts lost very little weight, they upped to ws and weight started to fall off them again. So either stay on ts and not exercise or move onto ws and exercise. Good luck.

    I too logged on here to ask this question.

    Ive started running (2 x beginners groups) so am 'running' about an hour twice a week.

    Do you think working solution would be better? I admit about 4 days out of 7 I'm having a shredded grilled chicken breast with my evenings carbonara (its lovely, try it!) to give me extra protein but for 2 weeks not my weight hasn't moved.

    I would appreciate any advice that's offered. Thanks in advance x

    Edited to add - if I'm having a chicken breast in my dinner 4 x a week, I'm close to ws anyway so what am I doing wrong? Do I need to have it daily with a little more (ie broccoli/salad etc?)
    m
    i am really getting disheartened by this and really don't want to muck things up so really need your suggestions.

    With shakes, soups or bars the possibilities are endless....

    that's part sarcasm, part irony and part inspiration - depends on my mood

    Hi I do about 20 mins a day jogging or step,

    I'm glad some one else is having the same issues as me, weigh day for me is tomorrow and I'm so hoping I've done more then 2lbs this week!

    It's just a little disheartening when you go without everything and loose so little when others around you are doing the more conventional diets or slimming groups and loose more then you a week :-(

    Well I weighed in on Monday and have lost 5lb this week,
    I cut down on exercise and added a protein meal for 2 of the seven nights, I'm back to 100% t.s this week and will see how next Mondays weigh in goes!

    So it seems that exercise isn't always a good thing :-/

    I've always found the same, even on SW....the weeks I did loads of exercise I wouldn't lose much compared to if I was a good old fashioned couch potato!
    im still taking the dog out every night but I'm not pushing it and going out of my way to exercise....don't need much of an excuse to veg out and watch Eastenders lol!
