    Hi all,had my first weigh in today and only lost 5lbs (although my scales told me this morning that i had lost 8lbs). Although i know that 5lbs is not bad i was really hoping for more, especially after reading other peoples 1st week weigh ins where they were losing 10 - 12lbs etc. :sigh:
    Is this normal, could i expect to lose more next week???
    :(

    5lbs is good! Go and pick up a 5lb bag of spuds and carry it around the supermarket for 10mins!

    Everyone loses differently - try not to compare yourself to others.

    Drink plenty of water - and by next week you'll be at least half a stone lighter.

    I know you must be feeling a bit fed up. But if you look at some of the other posts you will see that some people have a smaller loss at the start and then a few weeks in have a week or two of big losses. So hang in there. Let's be honest ....would you rather have the 5lbs on or off?? It is a good loss. Stay strong for next week.

    sarsg I hope you are feeling a bit more optimistic today. 5lb is a great loss and you would be lucky to get a loss like that on any other diet.

    Keep drinking the water, until you feel like you can't drink anymore and you may be surprised next week. :D

    Stick with it missus and I am sure you will see the results soon :scale:

    5lbs is great! I only lost 6lbs in my 1st week. I make the mistake of weighing myself on my scales and I sometimes have a nice surprise and lose more than i thought or sometimes completely dissapointed because i lose less. Everyone fluctuates between 5lb per day. Dont worry about it! :) xxx
