    TOTM can affect losses - I only lost 1lb that week.

    That's 7 months away so if you stick to it, you should be well on your way to 10st by then. What a great birthday pressie! I did something similar in 2001 and lost 2.5st (on WW) for my birthday present to myself.

    yeah water retention before totm could be to blame...

    losses normally good in first few days as we lose lots of water so this sounds like the reason.

    unless you did a prep week? ie cut down on carbs and lost alot of water last week?
