    Is weight loss slower 2nd time around?

    Hey guys,

    Well I had my 2nd WI today and lost 5.5lb making a total of 16.5 in the last two weeks. It's not that this is a paltry amount or anything (over a stone- whoop!) but I can't help comparing it to my first time around (17lbs in the first week and 8 in the second!) Given that I weighed LESS than I do now I'm pretty unclear how I can be 8.5 less than the first time around... unless your body learns what you're doing and holds on to it? I'm just interested to know if other people who are on it for a 2nd time are finding their losses to be slower than the first time around? It's a bit demoralising to compare it with last time and I know I still need to hold onto the success of losing over a stone, it's just a bit tough

    It is harder 2nd time round, but easier than the 3rd. Like I am!

    I know, it's so frustrating because the weight fell off the first time. Do you think our bodies have learnt? X

    I don't know I thought that! I lost 7lbs this week so was pleased but that is still less than last time overall! Trying not to compare. My brain is definitely not as tricked as much as it was last time by ketosis!!
