    hi mel, a loss is a loss, don't get too disheartened!

    have you been exercising as weight losses can be less even though you'll be losing inches xx

    How many of your weeklies are you eating?

    Different people need different amounts of their weeklies. Some hardly eat any and that works for them, others can eat them all and still lose. At the beginning there's a bit of practice needed to find out where you fall with this.

    Personally I HAVE to leave at least 20 weeklies or I don't lose weight. I always eat my 30 points a day but try and vary how many of my weeklies I eat.

    Try not to eat the same thing every day - your body gets used to the stagnant energy levels. Try and mix up how much, what and how many of your points you eat a day.

    And good luck. If you're being strict and not sneaking treats, it will work. :)

    I have to agree with sneeze but I do think you should be eating as many of your weeklies as possible.

    Are you weighing everything properly, and pointing accurately?

    WW advise that you should be losing between 1 to 2 pounds a week, which is exactly what you have done. Yes, some people have larger losses to begin with, but plenty don't. WW is only designed to make you lose 1 to 2 pounds a week. If you want higher losses, really you should try a different diet.

    This ^^^

    This week I only lost .5lb but my jeans have got baggier this week - I think it's to do with fat and muscle weighing the same so even though you're losing fat you might be building muscle at the same time so it balances out and makes it look like you've not lost anything on the scales. Any loss is better than a gain :)

    muscle is denser than fat, so it takes up less space for the same weight.

    so if you lose a pound of fat and gain a pound of muscle, you are going to be "smaller"

    as well as that muscles cost calories to exist (fat is stoic and requires nothing), which makes your body a more efficient fat burner. :)

    I'm doing a very intense exercise regime, not losing huge amounts of "scales" weight... but I've got massive muscles growing despite that x

    it doesn't always work like that and everybody is different but i see you have 37 a day, i only have 29 a day and i use all them on food and there is nothing spare to have a drink and enjoy myself

    if i didn't use them then i might lose it quicker but a healthy weight loss is 1-2 lbs a week and i am quite happy plodding along as long as i shift the weight! x

    I felt like this in the beginning also, slow and steady wins the race and today I hit my 3 stone loss, it's taken 9 months but it feels amazing!

    The best advice I can say, and what you will hear so many times is "A loss is a loss" and it is so right.
    Keep your chin up and stick at it, it is so worth it I promise :)
