    Hi everyone

    Had my second weigh in yesterday, after another week of nothing passing my lips except the shakes and gallons of water, I was gutted to have only a 2.25lb loss.

    I think my CDC was a little surprised too, as she whipped out her measureing tape and to my delight I found I've lost 8.5inches all over, so that's something to celebrate!

    Would love to hear your thoughts - this weight is going to come off, isn't it??

    The body is a complex and frankly downright moody and wierd contraption! Everyone's is different and everyone loses at different rates. I often look at tickers of the people on here and see 14 and 16lbs on 1st wk, I lost 8 and while I was delighted I couldn't understand what made them so different.

    Chin up, it will happen. Your body will do it it's own stroppy way so have patience with it. You are doing everthing right so keep it up. Maybe increase the water a little. Don't be tempted to weigh yourself mid-wk and see if you get a pleasant surprise next weigh in.

    Thank you all for your kind words and support - exactly what I needed!! Have realised that I'm mid cycle, so maybe that might be something to do with it - looking forward to TOTM to see a significant loss!!

    Good luck to you all too! x

    Lots of factors for a low loss!

    Firstly it can be completely normal.
    Constipation can be an issue
    Time of the month!
    Water intake shortly before weigh in. I normally recommend that my clients stop drinking an hour or so before they come as a litre of water weighs over 2 pounds!

    In any case, you catch it up, the average loss on the diet is a stone a month and you are well on your way to achieving that! :D

    Don't worry, small weight loses often happen in the 2nd week apparently. It's just your body readjusting. Bet you'll have a fab loss next week!
