    I know that everyone is different but there must be an overall reason why anyone on a vlcd would sts. I dont want to become obssessed with my WI's as long as I know Im 100%(ss, water, exercise) but it takes a lot of concentration at times and a lot of hard work. It can really be so disapointing not to lose anything. It happens to many(but not all). I guess i just need a little encouragement at the moment because it is the first time this is happening to me and I have so much more to lose!!:wave_cry: Anyone? If you had an sts,please reassure me that it will come off....dont get me wrong, my overall loss is fine and Im happy with that, this isnt a complaint, just feeling a little down after a bad day and was hoping the scales would show a loss to make me feel better, but NO:cry:

    Hey Denise sending you hugs for a bad day but I promise you its one of the wierd side effects of this diet of a STS or a minimal loss one week and then a whoosh the next. Im going to put my losses on for last time for you as I was totally committed 100% with no blips no nothing (not like this time)
    7 6 3 4 1 6 2 6 0 4 5 4 2.5 4 1 0 0 2.5 0

    I think you may be retaining fluid from your exercise but not sure dont quote me on this a CDC may know. hope you get a whoosh next week

    the other thing is that I always used to say to myself in one way it doesnt matter what the scales say on a weekly basis as long as 2 wks together add up to 7 or 4 weks add up to 14 and looking at your stats you lost 18 and 18.5lbs the first 2 months and then think now you are month 3 and that will probably add up to the same
    LOL

    Diet:
    Was Cambridge, now maintaining
    When fat leaves the fat cells, it often fills with water, temporarily. At some point and for some reason, the water will suddenly release and you get a whoosh and drop on the scales.

    Also exercising can cause a STS as your muscles will hold on to water whilst they repair.

    Nah, you're not gaining muscle. You'd need to eat way over maintenance cals to do that.
