    Hey everyone,
    I am Jen from Glasgow! Not posted on here before so thought I should say hi first!
    I have been on WW for 5 weeks now and normally lose about 2 to 3lb a week. This week i only lost 1lb. I know it is still a loss and I should be pleased but I'm so depressed!! I gave up cheese cake during the week for an apple for goodness sake!! LOL
    My period started yesterday, could that have something to do with it? Or am I clutching at straws?
    Any motivation would be gratefully appreciated!

    Hi Cheryl,
    Thanks for the reply! Thats wonderful that you lost 8 stone! You must have some amout of will power! I managed cambridge for about a week! lol Was totally rubbish!
    Hopefully next week I will lose more, just having the sunday blues! Thought I had done well this week and it turns out to be my lowest loss! :(
    Thanks again

    Aww, I'm sorry you're not happy with your loss, but 1lb is good for a low week - my average used to be about 1lb per week, sometimes 1.5lb, but usually 1lb, so you're doing well to have that as your lowest loss so far.

    If you lost 1lb every week then it'd soon add up - stick with it!

    How much do you have to lose??

    Started at 17stone2lb. After 4weeks was down to 16st. Now I am 15 stone 13! Want to lose about another 6 stone! I think the ole time of the month is making me more emotional about the whole weight loss thing that I need to be! 1lb is great! I could have put on 5lb! lol! Must have a PMA!! :)

    Welcome to Minimins :)

    1lb isnt unusual on WW, your loss so far has been above the average so well done!! 1 - 2lbs is the guestimate WW give so 1lb is fine :)

    You dont have to drink 3l of water a day though. In fact that could be too much, is that all you drink or do you have other drinks over and above that?

    I normally only manage about 2 litres a day, although not everyday. I drink tea too and the occassional diet coke too. How much should you drink?
    Does it make a big difference?

    Drinking water makes NO difference to weight loss when youre doing WW. It might stop you eating or make you feel healthier but it wont speed things up. Theres a common misconception among a lot of people, particularly those who do VLCDs that 'the more you drink the more you shrink' which is absolutely completely and utterly untrue, but it still doesnt stop them drinking ridiculous amounts of water.

    You should be drinking around 2litres of FLUIDS a day that includes tea, coffee, juice, water. Bear in mind you also get several litres of fluid naturally from food.

    From sunny summerston. Not going to classes just do it online. My wee dog and I have a way in party on a Sunday together! lol! Its all very sad! hee hee!! Was thinking about going to classes instead cause I was worried I would just cheat online but I have been amazed at my will power! Think its cause WW is so great and easy! If my willpower starts to go tho i will go to classes instead.

    Hi Jen and welcome. You've had a fab loss so far, well done. It's more than likely that your TOTM may have slowed down your weight loss but as Starlight says, 1-2 lb per week is to be expected so you're doing very well x

    Does anyone know why carrots are 0 points raw but 1point per cup cooked?? Was someone pulling my leg with that one? I did believe for years that gullible wasnt in the dictionary! :|

    Carrots are 0 points regardless of whether they are raw or cooked :)

    Unless you fried them of course, but it's not a particularly common cooking methods for carrots ;)
