    Hi everyone am feeling very disappointed I haven't lost any weight so far this week And I feel like I have hit a plateau. Can anyone tell me how to kick start things again? I will never fit in that dress at this rate! :-(

    Thanks x

    There are various strategies but, unless I'm mistaken, you've not been posting your menus so it's difficult to advise what to change...

    Care to go to the menu thread and put a few days' menus up for perusal?

    As you probably know, I've been coached on the official French site and he says not to worry unduly about "stagnation" until 10 days of no loss... but I know how frustrating it can be well before that...

    Many factors, other than food, can of course affect our losses too (cycle, transit, water retention, eating too salty food...)...

    Hi Jo
    I have decided to have a few days of attack and cut out the fruit muller yoghurts although i was only having 1 a day. and see if that shifts things. xx

    mmmmm your lodger sounds like MY sort of girl!

    Redoing attack ISN'T one of the strategies! Really not a great thing to do cos your body ends up getting used to it...

    according to the book it says if you have stagnated then to do attack for a few days. i think i am not eating enough too. just out of interest how big are everyones portion sizes? i.e if you have steak how much would you have?

    Thanks

    Hiya Vicky

    I have been doing 1/1 on cruise. really wanted to get my 2lb off this week!! have got an excercise bike the other day so have been doing a couple of miles on that for the last two days. thought it might be because i have been abit 'bunged up' but i am not now! x

    Hi,

    are you drinking enough water? If you're not drinking enough your body tends to retain it rather than flush it out... I'm sure you'll get there soon I was stuck for at least 5 days last week and then dropped by over 1lb overnight.
    When you're off PP eat some asparagus ;)
