Hi I'm in the same boat, just starting my 4th wk and my weight loss has stopped, I've done soo well so far and feeling really unhappy at the mo. But I feel better reading what you have all said. I will keep going... I find somedays drinking 4lts water really hard going. Am I supposed to be exercising or not????? Because I'm not!! In fact I'm doing less and less everyday as I feel very tired, spent the whole day yesterday on the sofa reading this site!!! Am I the laziest person on here????
1st and 2nd week lost 5lb each and now the 3rd week i have gained 2lbs!!! not happy at all - but I am on my monthly cycle - i really hope that i will double next week and lose more... need to lose another 21lbs in 4 weeks! fingers crossed.
dont worry natuarlly stush, I think we all go through it some stage. I with you xox
NS, I thought before you posted your losses that you hadnt lost anything at all in the few weeks you were on it!!! But look at 15lbs you lost in 3 weeks what other diet would you get that on?
I know you're a bit disappointed with week 3 totally understandable, but its only one week with an off loss, the average is 3 to 4 lbs a week so your other weeks were well on track. Personally I feel that losing only 1 lb on this diet in a week is so de-motivating considering the scarifice that it takes to do this diet. BUT try not to take it in isolation, you're not finished week 4 yet and who knows it could turn it around
Girl you are far from the one in however many million that this diet wont work for you've had great losses unfortunately we are all impatient and we want instant losses, you are doing great, you've had a disappointing week but it will turn around for you hun
Hi, stick with it..it works. Allthough it may look like some people loose masses every week, they too have struggles here and there. I always gain when I'm due on..sometimes 5lbs (once I put on 6lbs within 20 mins of talking to my gp, she was quite surprised at that too..lol). It will go. I like the totm weeks nowadays because I know my loss the week after is usually big and that gives motivation....
I'm wondering if it is a week 3 thing! I lost 11lbs in the first week and 11lb in the second week ... and for week 3 WI stayed the same (albeit with a cheat :sign0007
It is quite annoying and demotivating as I everytime I jump on the scales I don't seem to shift from 19st / 18st 13! All I want to do is dip into the 18s properly...
I'm also due my TOTM and wonder if this is affecting my losses. I've been really, really good since Sunday and nothing seems to have shifted. I suppose I got too used to seeing the scales drop so quickly in the first two weeks and a bit complacent!
Anyway hun, you're in the same boat with me and definitely not alone -- and I dunno about you, but I'm going to stick it out for a bit longer yet. If I don't see a 7lb loss in the next two weeks (with no cheats!) I might start to worry. xx
