    I'm now on day 8 of my total meal replacement plan using Avidlite MRP products.

    I lost 3 pounds the first day, 2 pounds the second day and 1 pound on the 3rd day and since then I have not lost anything. That's 5 days with no loss :confused::confused::confused:

    I've stuck to the plan perfectly. My water intake wasn't great on days 5 and 6, but it's now back where it should be.

    What am I doing wrong??? I'm on the verge of giving up :cry:

    You're weighing yourself too often.

    Weight fluctuates due to all sorts of things, hormones, amount of erm "waste" in the bowel, water retention, muscle/fat ratio, and that's just off the top of my head.

    Set youself a single date/time each week to weigh in and even if you look at the scales inbetween only take note of your weight on your proper weigh-in.

    You will still see an overall downward trend week on week if you do it like that.

    Way I see it you have lost 6lbs in a week, that's great. :) if you go another 2-3 weeks without losing then you would be justified in worrying.............

    LT, now cc-ing to lose Christmas blubber!
    Ditto. Step away from the scales!! My weight can fluctuate 5-6lbs a DAY depending on what I eat/drink/exercise!
    If you really can't stop weighing yourself, take a note of your weights & work out the average each day. Plot this on a chart and you'll see the line going rapidly down.
    6lbs in a WEEK!!! Err...hello, thats AMAZING!!!!!:eek::D
