    Hi all, I've just had my first week weigh in and have lost 6 pounds.....I know i should be happy, but i was really hoping for 7 at least and now i feel like a failure and really down :cry: I've been really good all week, but havent drank as much water as I should have. Any advice on how I can keep going?

    Hi,
    I've been drinking about 1 litre a day, even that is a strain for me!! Does anybody know how much ideally i should be drinking?

    1 liter is really not enough. You should up it to 2.25 at least! If you find it difficult to drink so much, try spreading it over the day. I always have a 1.5 ltr bottle on my desk and try to drink that before the afternoon.

    Know how you feel my first wi was 4lbs on ss no cheating at all, but I am determined to give it a good go and stick with it :). I think 6lbs is good, just think by next week you could be nearly a stone lighter

    well done to everyone on their losses. I plucked up the courage to rejoin last nite so I'm on day 1 of sole source. I have a 2 litre bottle of sparkling water on my desk to get me to drink more.

    6lbs is good, dont be so hard on yourself, 1 litre a day isnt enough you need at least 2.25 ontop of tea and coffees etc, i drink bottled water if that will help, i went through them all and evian is the one for me, hang in there keep going it WILL come off

    Hi

    6lbs is a brilliant loss! :D think of the comparison with other diets (maybe 2lbs a week) You might be retaining fluid which is why its so important to meet the minimum fluid intake to help flush it out.

    I put mine into 1L volvic bottles so I know I need at least two of those and can make up the difference with black tea/coffee/allowable herbal teas (not keen on any of them but it can make a change (also you can have the water flavourings after week 3 i think??)

    Keep going you are doing great :)

    Yep, 2.25L plus another glass for another tetras and bars.

    Don't feel that you have to have more than this....you really don't unless you are thirsty.

    Don't forget you can include teas and coffees in this and there's loads of different herbal teas you can have that are lovely

    peppermint tea
    Redbush tea
    Nettle tea
    White tea
    Green tea

    Just avoid any with fruits or flowers, such as lemon tea.

    Also do try the sparkling water. It makes a really refreshing change :)

    Space it out during the day. It's about 8 glasses, so a glass of water, or a mug of tea every couple of hours works well.

    Oh and you could always add extra water to your shakes. That'll count too :)

    6lbs is great BTW. Wonder what next weeks will bring. All exciting stuff :clap:

    6lbs is a great loss hun, please don't be too disappointed. Like the others have said you really should up your water intake - I believe it really does make a difference. Hope you're feeling much brighter xx

    6 lbs is fab chick.....you may find it helps if you compare your weight loss with other members that are around your height and weight and then you will realise 6lbs is a great loss.

    Drinking the recommended water intake really does help "flush out the fat" ;-) give it a go x
