    i am a serial scalehopper. have been since day 1 and usually it helps me and keeps me focused. but since my last weigh in on wednesday....they have stayed the same. im getting mad and disheartened and i know i shouldnt and its not like me at all but im starting to think "oh maybe im only gonna lose about a lb a week from now on" i know its silly!!!! i have my next weigh in on wednesday and i think the very most i can lose by then will be 2lb at a push. where have i started going wrong?! or does every1 get a week like this???

    Hi Lisa,
    My scales have slowed down the last 2 weeks. Up until yesterday I thought I was only going to have a 1lb loss.
    I spoke to my cdc about it, and she's recommended I do aam this week. She thinks it'll boost my metabolism.
    I wasn't too sure whether I was going to do it until I spoke to her.
    Hope this helps.

    I know exactly how you feel. It's really hard when you know you haven't cheated. But we must be losing weight with the amount of calories we're on. Maybe you should measure yourself now so you can always compare inches when the weight isn't coming off.
    Stick with it, you've come so far already.

    Girls, girls, girls.....GIVE UP THE SCALES. Put them in the bin. Once you have, there is no going back. Are your clothes getting looser? That's good enough.

    DONT DO IT!!! I too suffer with scale hopping and I have made myself so miserable on it. You know, and so do I that on this diet, ketosis or not, we HAVE to lose weight. We cant not, after all most diets are 1000kcal or thereabouts and those folks lose weight too, tho just not as fast.

    Step away from the scales (& I promise to stop weeing on sticks nearly every time I have a wee!!! LOL!! PS it is NEVER pink these days, but no hunger so.....)

    Keep going, you know its worth it!

    Don't worry Lisa. My scales were stuck at the same weight for days on my 3rd week and i only lost 2lbs. The will move again as mine have. I think this happens now and again - Just remember not to expect the everyday losses of the first week or so. Look at the weight you've lost already!!:D Go Girl!!
