First week , and I am disappointed!!!

#1
I know I told myself enough of fad diets, and start changing my life style for good, and forget starvation diets even a pound loss is good but I hoped in my first week to lose more but only 2pounds!!!! I feel cheated!!

I am not new to the plan and I have been good 100%, if that was my second week ok, a girl started with me, lighter than me and managed to lose more!! There was a women who lost 11 pounds in her first week!!! Everyone loses more I just feel so gutted, even ashamed when my consultant announced my loss!!

have you been doing other diets?? i know some peoles bodies need time to adjust to eating plans and i am sure it will show on the scales next week just dont give up hope as it does work and 2lb loss is better then 2lb gain its an acheivement

I only lost a 1lb in my first week and then the next week 4lbs - don't be disheartened sometimes people have a quick loss and then slow down and others go a ta steady pace - a loss of 2lbs is good and if you continued for a year that would be a loss over 7 stone!:)

Listen, don't compare yourself to others, it's fatal. People who lose loads in their first week are losing mainly water, not fat. Maybe you had been dieting before joining, or maybe you had a healthier diet than them before hand.
Anyway, well done on losing 2lb and good luck for next week xx

Yes I have I have done stupid diets before even living on diet coke only!! I tell my self maybe my body been so abused, SW is considered too much food for it, and I should be grateful I have not put on weight.

im just the same i have a lot of weight to lose and in the past year tried everything and i think my body needed time to adjust i was at first disappointed in losing 2lb (prob because i was watching every episode of biggest loser and wanting weight losses the same) but now i just plod along and as long as it aint a gain im fine just keep at it and good luck

Maybe is too much carb because I have been doing green?? I am just not a big fan of meat, I know people on red days lose more?

My first week I lost half a pound. :eek: ! ! then the second week I lost 4 and got slimmer of the week. :cool:
I was gutted too after my first week, and I came on here and was very upset but all these wonderful people on here told me, everybody's body works at a different pace, and dont compare mine with others and to stick with it and I did.
Remember 2 pounds is awesome... its like 2 bags of sugar, all fat gone forever.. its not a bad result at all. Go to the supermarket and lift two bags of sugar and feel how heavy it is...
(I actually do this... am i really sad.??)
Im hoping for 2 pounds this week, I would be thrilled.

They lose more because the exercise a lot, wouldn’t be wonderful if we have personal trainer?? I am determined to exercise more though, this way it will get rid off of the weight quicker.

Don't be disheartened, if you have been dieting in the past you may have already cut out alot of fat already and kept the changes you made originally this could be a reason for a smaller loss than someone thats never dieted before xxx

Ah don't worry. Your body is just learning what's going in, and will adjust to the changes. You probably didn't have much excess water to lose in the first week. My first week on WW I lost 9lbs (3yrs ago), I kept up with drinking water and am lucky to not store excess. So when I had my first WI on SW I lost 2lbs, lower than my norm but just because there was no water to shift! I'd be happy with that 2lb loss because it's 2lbs lighter than you were last week!! Well done to you, and stick at it. *hug* xx

Oh, and go take your measurements! Particularly if you're going to exercise, because if you only have a small loss one week, your shape may have changed a lot. And it's nice to see the physical changes!! :) xx

Firstly...well done on your loss Hun! Anyone who losses in their first week deserves a pat on the back regardless of how much it was.
Secondly your body is going to need to adjust to loosing weight and will start playing catch up...the weight will come off, just give it chance.

Slow and steady is a good way to go. I felt disappointed after my first week of a 3lb loss but now I think that yes I'm only loosing a 1.5lb a week but it's a loss and still less than last month. We are all so different and will loose differently, keep smiling and stay positive. Good luck
