the 2nd week is notorious for a low loss hun , you had a great one 1st week and most people do have a disappointing loss 2nd week and then it picks up . Your body may be redistributing fat and holding on to a little but it will be better next week if you stick 100 %
I had a two pound loss, as well. And that was following a 3 pound the week previously. But, I am trying to think of it as 5 pounds off in January and 5 pounds closer to my goal.
Also, as Janellekay wrote: You may have lost inches. My CDC taped me -- and I lost 2 inches off of my waist!!! So, I know where those two pounds had been. (and, my trousers are a lot more comfortable.)
Sooo, if you have the energy up your exercise and make sure you are drinking all your water... I'll do the same. And, let's try for 3 (which was my average on LL) -- because when you are closer to your goal weight you will not lose as fast as those who have more to lose.
Aw honey don't get disheartened, the weight will catch up by next week. I know when I first did Lipotrim I lost 11.5lbs the first week and only 1.5lbs the second, I was gutted! It was just my body trying to hold on to what it could, but once it realised that this was going to be "it" for a while, it kind of gave up, if you know what I mean. Apparently it is not unusual.
Hi. I only lost 2lb on my second week too 100% SS. It was 6 on the first week. I was disappointed too especially as my OH lost 12 & 5.
At the end of they day only eating 500ish cal's a day we have got to loose weight!! Everyone's body had a different biochemistry & the drastic diet change will affect as all differently. For some off us it will upset our monthly's / fluid retention, until we adjust. Some will suffer from infrequent bowl movements etc. All these things will affect our losses. I think we have to give it month for our bodies to adjust before we can determine what our weight loss rate will be?
It's also affected by exercise levels, mussel mass, BMI etc..... The list is endless.
As before, as far as I work out there is no way you can't loose the weight on this diet as long as you stick to it 100% or don't blow it after 1 falter.
I'm on day 14, so the proof will be in the pudding! - well hopefully not as it my pudding tummy that needs to go!!
