Hi all, been struggling with this diet lark for the past 4 weeks and don't know which direction to take it in. I was on a VLCD for 16 weeks and my weight loss had slowed to 2lbs a week which is not great for CD. My BMI was 27.25 and I thought maybe it was my bodies way of telling me to eat again. Did AAM then upped to 1000 cals for a week then moved onto a low fat diet at around 1400 cals. Over these 4 weeks I've lost less than a 1lb a week. I've had a few problems and been very stressed for the past few months and the temptation to fall off the wagon is very high.
I restarted CD 5 days ago as I thought my losses would go up again after the break but weighed my self today and STS??
Really don't know what to do. Anyone know why my losses have stalled? Don't think I can keep motivated if I have no loss on WK 1 back. :wave_cry:

Hi Dancing, I've been drinking 4ltrs a day on CD but dropped that to around 2 on 1400 cals. I was careful with weighing everything as I was worried about gaining after being on CD. Measurements have dropped about a cm from all areas in the past 4 weeks so clothes feeling about the same. Weighed again this morning and I'm 1 lb down but at least its starting to move.

Hi, i too am really struggling and its my 7th or 8th week. Only lost 21lb and its slowed right down but been doing AAM since week 3 (losing 1-2lb each week). Today had medium size mars bar which is first time. Im not going to binge and eat more crap but really dont know how long I can continue to do this. Feel like my body seeing enough now, need to eat three meals a day.:sigh:

Its difficult to keep motivated with small losses, thats when I start to feel deprived :) I then start to think " I can lose 1 -2 lbs on WW or the like a week and eat real food again." Problem with that is I've never managed to stick with a diet like that in the past, thus doing CD, so what makes me think I'll do it now?
If my body dosen't start telling me to eat I'm sure OH will - I've not been the easiest of people ti live with lately :eek:
