    Hi all

    Can anyone offer me some motivation before i fall off the wagon?!

    Usually when i stick to under 20g carbs a day, i can lose 1lb a day. I know this will vary wildly depending on TOMT, water consumption and exercise, but i haven't changed what ive been doing all week and yet each time i get on the scales (same time every day with no clothes on) im the same weight as what i was on Saturday morning. And im nowhere near TOTM.

    Just starting to lose the will to live and fancy just eating a great big greasy takeaway! makes you wonder what the point is :( help! xxx

    There could be all sorts of reasons - but I would really recommend you don't weigh more often than once a week.

    And if you're on Atkins you can have the greasy breakfast any time you want. Or all day! :)

    Hi, I'm def no expert I've only been doing this for a week but I was reading the diaries on here and I've seen it mentioned a few times that it can stall for a bit then come off in a whoosh so keep going and hopefully you will see a good loss. I know it must be frustrating I like to see the scales going down each day too but we can't always see what's going on inside, another idea is to eat completely different food to what you would normally eat that could get things moving x

    Have you took your measurements? It could be that you've lost inches instead of scales moving. It happens often on this way of eating. I've been passing the same lbs around for months now, imagine the frustration but whilst this is happening at least I'm not heading back up to where I came from. I tell myself that for comfort.
