    3rd Weigh in today. I'm a bit disappointed I only lost 3.5lbs - but in the whole scheme of things, its still a loss! It makes a total of 22lbs in 3 weeks so I know I am doing really well - but I had stuck to it so rigidly again and had hoped for more.

    Oh, well, every little counts and I am losing the inches!

    congratulations on your 3.5lb loss. Woo hoo. .... we put so much emphasis on the what the scales say but your shape will be changing too and next week you will have a loss you are happier with - look at Becky's signature!.

    Keep going

    A loss of 3/4lbs is normal whilst SSing and is FABULOUS!!

    Well done!

    I lost 17lbs my first week on SS, then 4lbs every week for weeks on end!

    Thank you all for being so positive for me - it gives me a boost! I think I am only disappointed as I have been so GOOD all the time!!

    As you say, shape is changing - and I have lost 4 inches off my waist and my hips already!

    grandma, dont be disappointed. 3.5 is fab and 22lb in 3 weeks is awesome. What other diet would give you such a quick weight loss. and WOW 4 inches off your waist in 3 weeks. Your clothes must be hanging off you

    Well done Grandma... that is a fantastic loss for the 3rd week of any diet! Your total loss is what I'd love to be seeing in a month, I'm only on day 5!

    Hi Grandma 3.5lbs is half a pound more than i lost this week on week 3 so don't be down. It's still a loss and like you I have lost inches too. STBG is right you wouldn't have anywhere near the loss you have already on WW.

    Stick with it and remember the average is a stone a month, you're well above average for this month already and you still have a week to go.

    Hi Grandma

    22lb in 3 weeks is nothing short of fantastic .... and you've smashed your first target of 20lb by the end of Feb, with 10 days to spare!!

    3.5lb is a good loss for a week, especially with the temptations that had been placed in your path whilst away with your hubby last weekend (only read your post, didn't leave a message) - well done to you, and keep up the good work.

    Stay strong, you're doing great xx

    I've just come back home - I've been looking after my little granddaughter all day while her mummy and daddy went for their 30 week scan - to find all your wonderful supportive messages.

    Thank you so much - you make me feel so much better - and yes, 22lbs in 3 weeks IS amazing! As you say, I have broken this month's target and I am well on the way to my next big target so I am doing well. You have put it into perspective for me - and that was what I needed.

    Bless you all!
