    :(

    Hello,

    I am a bit disappointed as I only lost 2.5 lb.

    Altogether it's been 12.5 lb in 3 weeks so not bad but was expecting more!

    Although saying that I have been naughty, had chicken a few times this week and had to have bread and wine for communion in church...

    Does anybody think that exercise will speed up my loss?

    Have you had 2 fab previous losses though cos 3 week does seem to be a time when people have what they call a bad week - but its just your body catching up as such! Dont worry and dont get upset hun - next week will be better - this is really common!

    I know it's disappointing but as Saraian says, it's pretty common on week 3.

    Still a great loss though. Doing another diet may have been a STS this week. Keep on trucking. You're doing fab :clap:

    Hey a loss is a loss - yes last time on cd, i had 9lbs, then 4lbs then it was 1b and i was gutted but soon found out it were common to happen.

    You can never predict if your gonig to have a nassive loss - i find as long as someone is 100% and stays in ketosis the losses can vary greatly.

    We get so used to big losses - just think if it were any other diet eg WW or SW we would be really chuffed with 2.5lbs!

    Don't worry about it - just carry on and think long term. :)

    I put a pound on last week & I was gutted, but it was totm so I'm hoping I've done better this week. My problem is if I know I'm going to cheat I have a meal of chicken & veg in the eve to stop me cheating. I should stay ss really

    Having chicken and veg is better than having a takeaway hun - its better to prevent a BIG cheat by having a small one.
