    Ok so i might not be seeing the bigger picture........

    But week one I lost a stone and now nothing!! Not 1lb ...... What's the point!! I could be eating and loose more weight than I have now....!!! I'm so upset I can feel myself about to give up! I know the weight loss slows down but this is ridiculous :( it's completey ruined my plan of being 12stone by Saturday i could honestly cry!!!

    Today Cambridge sucks!!!!!! :(

    Someone please tell me it gets better or KFC here I come

    week 2 is notorious for a low ( or no ) loss ! You lost 14 lb last week and that is amazing ... it may be a tough diet and you havent lost anything this week .. but 14 lb in 2 weeks is amazing ..... on something like SW you may have lost that amount in a month or 6 weeks ??

    If you stick with it then your losses will average out next week and you will loose more consistantly ... if you give up now you will regret it hun ....... think about the stone you have already lost and the 3-4 lb you will loose next week if you stay away from that KFC !!!

    14lb in ONE week :clap: ...... i don't lose that much in my first week & i weight a lot more than you do. Stick at it & see what you lose next week.
    You also don't have a huge amount of weight to lose compared to others so your losses maybe a little less than us larger people.

    KFC may sound nice at the moment but after eating you'll probably feel like crap & regret eating it.
    The diet works, stick at it & you will get the results you want.

    I have rubbish losses compared to others on here BUT whats the alternative for me.... go on WW and lose half a pound a week.... i'd rather stick at the CD & lose 2lbs - 2.5lbs a week.

    Keep at it Hun, it does balance out once your body realises that this is how many cals it's going to have to survive on. In week one you lose a lot so you body thinks "Hang on a minute missy, what are you doing to me?" and then fights like mad to conserve energy etc, hence your small loss in week 2.... Once it realises that the cals you're having are a regular thing, and you aren't starving it to death it will carry on and burn fat for the energy it needs.

    Everyone has this little trough at the beginning, for me it was week 3 where I hardly lost anything and was ready to throw the towel in, but once my CDC explained it to me it made sense.

    PS KFC is my craving at the moment, but I've just added it to my list of food I can have at the end. (which incidentally I never have at the end lol - but by then the craving has passed and I'm happy cos I gave myself permission to have it)

    Babe, why on earth do you want to eat those nasty 5 legged chickens? Hahaha ;-)
    Told you this morning what the deal is, you seriously need to get a tape measure!! I swear when you have a small loss you have got to check your inches chick!!

    You have come to far now to throw the towel in!! Mexico is 4 months away, we have work to do before we get on that plane!!

    I'm so proud of what you have achieved so far, and I know you can get to your goal no problem!

    Like I said this morning, think of your overall weight loss, not just the weekly loss!!

    So proud of you bestie!! Don't you dare give up!! You have come to far now!

    Love you lots my babe xxxxxxxx

    Hey hon

    Good advice above but you also have to get real! Sorry if this sounds harsh... it's not mean to be... but sometimes we need to hold ourselves accountable.

    There is no way in hell any food based programme would give you a weight loss of 14lbs in 2 weeks so stop fooling yourself with that idea.

    Also you cannot dictate what you lose every week.. .you can want "5lbs next week" all you want .. but that is the path to madness! Because you are setting unrealistic targets and by doing that you are going to risking feeding into self sabotage behaviours. Focus on that the average loss is a stone a month .. work the plan and then look at what you have lost over that 4 week period. Also take your measurements as the weeks the scales might give you a lower number it normally shows in inches.

    You have to really work out what is going on in your head at the moment. Why are you so ready to throw in the towel and why are you so willing to use an illogical reason to justify it? What are you really scared of? Why do you set your self such hard targets? Does this show up in other areas of your life? In work? In relationships? Do you always tell yourself it's not good enough? Must do better? Even if you have already essentially gotten an A in the "test"?

    You have to dig a little bit deeper into these thoughts hon or else you will "fail" on this diet too and be back in that bucket of KFC again wondering why you seem to do all these diets but never lose weight for more than a few weeks

    Have a read of this .. The Essentials of Emotional Eating | Shrink Yourself it might give you some ideas

    Take care

    You're doing great, and that's what this site is for after all!! I didn't find it until I was well into the journey and wish I'd known about it from the beginning :) I ended up reading books about how metabolism works, how your body processes food and how it's generally a lazy system lol. It'll use the easiest energy source to breakdown first and these are your carbs.

    Your body will leave the fat alone (harder to breakdown :() until it's used all it easy carbs. If we keep supplying it with carbs it'll keep "cheating" lol and never get round to burning the hard stuff. That's why VLCDs like CD are so great, it gives you enough carbs to keep your body happy but they get used up quickly so your body then uses fat to get the energy it needs yay :D

    You will still het compliements chick!! People notice things like weight loss so quickly!!
    Set your goals similar to how I have set mine babe, that way you have no rush to get there and can just mark it off as done when you complete it! It's very satisfying that way, just make sure your goals are realistic!!

    We will be on that beach in no time babe, running like the Baywatch babes! Hahahaha!!

    Not long left on the diet chick, the weeks are flying by!! Roll on Saturday for weigh in xxxxxxx

    Hey be as harsh as yopu like!! Honesty is appreciated :)

    but there is no way id expect 14lb week after week to be fair I never expected 14lb in one week Im still amazed!!! :) I did however think 5lbs was a reasonable thought!! but obviously I can now understand how the body wrks when you start to properly loose your weight

    I think its cool to set mini goals to keep yourself motivated obviously my downfal was convincing myself that this goal was definately going to happen lol now that was probably riding of the 1st weeks results lol

    I have never been on a 'proper diet before or even done anything like CD so i guess this is challenging for me as i never needed to diet before so I guess thats only why it is easy to say I want to throw the towel in but not so much mean it as much!!

    I think any diet is psychologically testing and the reasons are to do with your everyday living so there comes times with everyone when they want to throw in the towel , or set hard goals to push themselves its just one of the things that we can call inner demonds we all have them i guess its just how you keep them at bay or react to them :)

    Thank you for the reading material I plan to read today
