    Hi Jowry,

    Not had this problem myself but I dont take the coffee flavouring or the husks. All I can say is not too worry stay focused and you will probably lose more next week. Not much help and I am sure you are disappointed but keep your eye on the ball. Did you mention it to your consellor.

    wow! 5 stone, you should be so proud of yourself.

    This week is clearly just a blip and nothing to worry about....really.

    Look at what you have lost so far and how far you have come and relax.

    Good luck next week- I bet its a corker of a loss then.

    I haven't put weight on but I have had times when I haven't lost... the body is a funny thing, you may be brewing a cold or something similiar which can make you retain water... if you haven't had anything you shouldn't, then you'll see it in next weeks weigh in... don't panic yourself :) Last week I barely lost a lb but this week I lost 6lb! It's just the way the body works.. if you are worried it might be the coffee, just leave it off:)
    Great loss so far by the way

    you do have to be careful with how much water you drink before weigh in, 1 litre weighs 2.2 lbs, I went one week and had only lost .5lbs and was gutted, however, I had 3 big pees during group and LLC weighed me again and I had lost 3lbs!!
    After that I stopped drinking a couple of hours before WI.

    Oh, I know how discouraging that must have been for you cinsidering you have been 100%. The coffee and husks should not affect you. Fear not - you will probably have a brill loss next week. As said, bodies are strange....they will do what they want, and as long as you are on track, its not a genuine gain, but a blip or retention.

    Hang tough - and look out for a good loss next week!!!!

    That's exactly what I suspect has been happening to me! In fact last week I didn't drink anything 1 hour before my weigh in and I had better results. Will stick with no water for 2 hours beforehand from now on. Thanks for the tip, Ali. You're ever so helpful.:hug99:

    You'll probably still have lost fat. Maybe the coffee flavourings had some salt in because that can cause water retention can't it?

    I wouldn't worry about the scales tooooo much, the fact is if you've been sticking to the plan you will have lost fat, it's impossible not to on 500 odd calories a day :grouphugg:
