    So almost at the end of week two and finding it easy to stick to the diet (although apparently i'm not getting enough carbs and sometimes not enough fat), and maybe that is why this week so far I have managed to put 1lb on (although official weigh day isn't until Monday morning so maybe a extra push over the weekend and something will give). Really hoping this diet works because totally fed up of how I look and feel and nothing else has really worked in the past. Don't want to feel ashamed stepping out on the town with my girl any more and buying tents for clothes!

    Try having cream in coffee and salmon as opposed to other fish and use butter instead of oil for frying, also used butter to saute your veggies to up your fat content. Good luck on your journey :)

    You can do it! We have all had to get used to this lifestyle and we do get there if we stick with it!

    Hi Cat and welcome love, yes, don't forget, this is not a low fat diet at all, up your green leqaf veggies to increase your carbs should help

    Well week two and stayed the same which is slightly annoying, even a 1lb loss would have been something. Wondering whether its from exercising and if i've toned up instead? Want to try and keep with the exercising though to try and off-set loose skin as much as possible. Big push this week, please let the scales move in the right direction!

    In some ways I feel the tape is a better measurement, after all we want to be slimmer, the weight loss is just a side effect :)

    So took my measurements tonight cos was disappointed with my sts on second week. Did biceps, chest, waist, hips and thighs and in two weeks have lost a total of 7 inches so that's lifted the disappointment. Still hoping for some scale movement this week though
