Sorry you're disappointed, but it might just take you a little longer to get into it. :rolleyes:
5 Ibs is still a very good loss compared to most diets which do 1-2 pounds a week.:)

Stick with it for the 4 week SS period and I'm sure you'll hit the target 1 stone per month.

Good luck :wavey:

Deb,


I think 5lb is a fabulous loss for your first week. It is fatal to compare against others as everybody loses at different rates. Some who are posting bigger losses might have a lot to lose.
How much do you plan to lose?
Don't be detered, keep it up. As Ellie says you are on target to lose the predicted one stone a month :)

Hollycat,

Thanks for the encouragment. BMI 33 so a good few stone which is why I hoped for a bigger first week loss.........
I have been advised by my CDC to drink 6 litres of water a day. Is this too much?

You probably had less water to lose hun. I'm sure it'll even out over the month to the stone thats expected. I can understand why you're disappointed but keep on with it & you should see good results.

Hi,

I think BMI 33, makes you a positive skinny minny (check my ticker:mad:), so I would be pleased with 5lb. On the water front, it is a minimum 2.5 litres, but nearer 4 is advised. I am sure a CDC will be along to give the offical guidelines.
You are doing great, keep it up :)

Stick with it and see what next week brings, i've read of people on here who have had smaller first week losses than second week. Either way 5lb is still a good loss, and i'm sure like the others have said it will even out to a stone a month over the coming weeks.

I drink 5 litres a day, but i'm nearly 6 foot so figure i need more water. Not sure why she told you 6 litres, although someone who knows more about it will probably be able to answer that better :)

Hi Ava

I too am 6 foot so have purposely been drinking more water. I suppose Im just trying to find a reason wht I havent lost more the first week.
Are you having 4 shakes/soups a day???

Yes i'm on 4 packs a day, i don't have the shakes cos i've gone off them all so what i usually have is a tetra in the morning, split in two, then topped up with hot water makes 2 cups of hot choc. I usually have one cup at 11, then veg soup for lunch, another cup of hot choc at 5 ish, veg soup for dinner then either a bar or another hot choc(full tetra in bigger cup this time) later on. Sounds boring but i'm happy enough with it :)

The tetras split in half with hot water sound like a good idea. Ive tried the soups and the two flavours Ive tasted were disgusting... I tried the Thai one and chicken and mushroom. I couldnt bear them. Is the veg one any better???

Hi Deb

Firstly, well done on getting through the first week. 5lbs is a great loss, especially as you don't have a horrendously high BMI (although personally I hate BMI as an indicator or anything!)...

I would definitely recommend you give it the month as initially things could still be loitering from your pre-diet eating etc etc.. also time of the month can impact (for me it makes a massive difference) and the water thing, I've never measured how much I drink I just keep drinking.. lol... gallons of the stuff!

Your CDC has given you good advice I think, and water will be your best friend.

Well done again on a great start (almost half a stone in a week!!). :D Worth every penny I'd say ;)

Thanks Deb

I thought you might have done the last supper routine.. lol... most people do! Glad you're going to give the diet a fair chance to do its magic, you really won't regret it. If you stick to it it can't fail to work for you :D

This site is absolutely the best place for encouragement and support - not sure I could've got this far without it to be honest, and, getting to the social meets is a really really good part of that.

Thanks for the kind words, I'm kind of in a state of shock about my weight loss lol, but am very very happy :D

If you want something to do of an evening, nip along and read my diary.. lol.. it's VERY long and boring but might stop any urges to take a diversion from SSing.. lol

Really glad you feel better :D Good luck, and keep us all posted as to how you get on! I found keeping a weight loss diary has really helped. :)

Hi Deb,

veg is my FAV soup!!!!!

Have you frozen a choc tetra yet, freeze and take out an hour before eating, its yum!!!!

5lbs is Fab, That was about my first loss on ss and I lost 5st in 4 months, so you can too!

Well done for not giving in, the worst part is over, and you will average a st per month. I wouldnt go above 6 litres of water, I always stuck to between 4 and 5, any more and Id get leg cramps.

By the way, have you picked up a 5lb bag of spuds today, if not, go do so, its heavy!
