    I know i must have done something wrong, but i honestly stuck to it ALL week. I filled in my diary sheets and aparently they look fine but i gained 1lb on the first week? Everyone looked at me like i was some sort of diet cheat!!!!:confused::sigh::cry::(

    have you been on a low calorie diet befor you started did you drink a lot of water due to the heat before weigh in, if not then post your diarys in the right section here and pop a link in this thread also see the thread a few down sombody else had a gain in the first week

    if you have come from a VLCD that can cause a shift in your metabolism, and this can cause a gain in your first 2/3 weeks, once your body understands it is going to be fine, have normal food again it will stop your body storing the fat, and you will start to lose weight again.

    Maybe post your food diary on here (there is a seperate section for this) and we can all have a look and give you any pointers if you need them!

    xxx Good luck, i can imagine you are feeling bemused and upset - but stick with SW! its the best!!! xxx

    Oh yes, * week can totally change your results - most people gain or maintain due to water retention on * week!

    I bet you lose LOADS next week hunnie! good luck! xxx

    Hi jojo148,
    I joined SW last week and the exact thing has happened to me, I weighed in last night and was 0.5lb up! I was the only member who gained and I felt like a leper. However I am keeping the faith and will strive for a better result on Tuesday.
    Good luck next week :)
