    I've got 12 lbs to go and I've found it has really slowed up (as it has with others in my group). Is everyone having the same problem? Has anyone found a way to keep the weightlosses up?

    I'm planning in going onto RTM and start eating on 9th Feb, and want to lose at least another 5lbs by then (so I am 7lbs off target) or hopefully the full 12! Is this achieveable?

    I know you can lose about 7lbs in RTM's first couple of weeks - but has anyone NOT lost ANY weight in RTM? If that's likely, then I'll stick with developers until its all gone - just to be on the safe side!

    Thanks - and sorry for the mixture of questions!:rolleyes:

    Deb - I lost four pounds in my first week in RtM, and judging by the scales this morning, I am in for another loss tonight (will let you know for sure later though).

    Most people lose in the first few weeks, and from the people I have spoken to, it slows to maintaining about week four or five.

    Hope that helps. I too got frustrated with the last bit as it really slowed down. Started RtM with 6 pounds to lose (fingers crossed I will meet my goal tonight!)

    OOh - thanks Leesy - let me know how you get on.

    I'm hoping that I can lose 2.5lbs a week for the next 3 weeks before I start - then I'd only have about 4.5lbs to go - which it sounds like I'd lose in the first couple of weeks anyway.

    You've made me fee much more confident about it.

    Thanks!

    Hi guys,
    I am almost there but reality for me is that although I am in ketosis, my weight losses were never very much anyway. Average was 2.5lbs a week. Well, I pretty much got 2.5lbs every week! I am finding that I want food more and more and although I would like to have lost a bit more I am going to start RTM on Monday when I go for weigh in. I am not holding out much hope of losing more weight but to be honest if I can stay round about where I am then I won't be to unhappy.
    Deb, you are almost there!!!! Wow, look at that BMI! Well done!
    I suspect I will complete RTM and then possibly go back to abstinance for a short while to lower my weight.

    Thanks scot....:eek:

    Yep - not far away now - but feels like miles because weightloss dragging......:(

    My plan after all this is over:rolleyes:, is to follow a low-carb vegetarian way of life, so my thinking is that whatever I come out of RTM as, I can always lower my carbs for a couple of weeks and lose the odd pound or two if necessary. Abstinence is always an option too, particularly if you're planning on going to maintenance weigh-ins like I am!

    I think my LLC will see a lot of me over the next year. I plan to complete RTM and go back on a regular basis to touch base with her as she has been fantastic.
    I work strange shifts and I have a great little routine with my packs here and I may think about carrying on with just packs whilst working. It is just a thought at the moment but I must be a bit weird in that I can't imagine life without my beloved mushroom soup!!!! It has been my saviour on this plan and I adore it!!!
    How sad am I!!!!

    Not weird or sad!! I was thinking about sticking to 2-3 packs a day and an evening meal, and if I can't maintain my weight low-carbing (although in honesty, I really think that I can) then that is what I will do. I'll really miss the hot chocs that I make into the muffins.....and the strawberry sauce.....and the cranberry bars actually....

    Hmmm......why am I so keen to get into RTM???:confused:
