    Hi all

    Well I have been back on CD for a week and a half now (i gave myself a 3 day head start from left over packs) and today i had my first weigh in.

    I did not cheat all week, and only lost 4lbs.:cry:

    My weight was 11 stone 5.5 and i am now 11 stone 1.5.

    When I was weighed i felt so disheartened, because i was expecting to lose a bit more. ITS SO FRUSTRATING!!!

    Ha, at first when she weighed me it only showed 2lbs! I demanded something wasnt right and so i did it again, and it showed 11 stone 1.

    I want to be 10 stone 3/4, i hope it doesnt take too long?

    I think the following may be factors that stopped weight loss - am i right?

    • about 5 cans of coke zero during my week - with my crisps for lunch
    • maybe a couple of days with 2 scoops of mix a mousse
    • only 2.5 litres of water a day
    • 2 days where i had 2 packs - had a tetra brik thurs and fri - extra as was so hungry.
    Whats everyones thoughts?

    Lauren.

    P.s - i nearly cried when i found out it was only 4lbs i managed to keep my composure though!!

    you should find u have a better loss if u drink more water. could u manage an extra litre or 1.5 litres on top? last time i did CD my best losses were the weeks i had 4 litres daily...it really does make a difference. xxx

    also, r u in ketosis? having mix a mousse and coke zero in the first week might mean u arent in fat burning mode.

    Thanks girls, I am going to try and up the water then.

    Maybe im not then? I should know better really, i've been on and off CD since October last year!

    I should have a better week this week, i will lay off the MAM and coke zero and drink more water.

    My ketostix always have a cerise colour whereas last year they were always beige - ketosis.

    Hmm something to think about....thank you. x x

    IF Stick is cerise colour you are dehidrated...and must drink more water. 4lb is still a good loss. Don't beat yourself up. Leave off the Coke Zero too..I'm sure this will help too.

    Isn't it probably because you are only a couple of pounds away from goal?Sure a CDC will advise - but I'd say 4lbs is pretty damn good and you'll be at target next week! Well done

    Hi!

    Sorry when I said 10 stone 3/4 I mean 10 stone 3 or 4 lbs!

    So no not on target yet.

    I dont see HOW i can be dehydrated, its silly because im drinking so much water.

    Will try harder this week! Lauren x

    Hi Lauren :)

    I hope you're feeling a bit better after reading everyone's replies. These are my thoughts.

    * 4lbs = 14,000 calories. (Hope I've got my sums right there as I'm a bit tired:rolleyes:)

    * Pick up 2 bags of sugar next time you are shopping and carry them around for 5 minutes, put them down and see how you feel.:)

    * I agree about upping your water intake a bit. :)

    Lacey x :D
