    do you weigh everday? if so your weight if bound to fluctuate. maybe if you weight once a week you'll see it go and stay down (i'm one to talk bceause i weigh everyday but still! if you're disheartened by it then try weighing once a week to see better results)

    I agree, although I too am a daily weigher (oops). The other thing is if you haven't lost by a week, maybe worth checking your overall calorie count, just to check you are eating a low enough amount to lose weight. I'm sure you are but calories sneak into lots of things, eg mayonnaise, gravy - any sauce. Blue top milk, crisps, cheese, butter, I know you've thought about all this but maybe it's worth doublechecking :)

    Well if that's what you're eating sounds really healthy to me, make sure the veg doesn't include too many potatoes (don't know if your eating potatoes lol). You WILL have lost fat weight, it would impossible for you not to. If you haven't lost on the scales it MUST be another reason, eg fluid retention etc. In which case keep going, the body HAS to give up fluid eventually and then you will see a sudden weight loss, as your scales weight catches up with your true weight! The best of luck, you'll do fine.

    You are about the same height as me, and have about the same amount of weight to lose as I did when I started ( I still have a long way to go) so it can be done - and we will do it!

    Have you checked your actually calorie intake and burn? Sounds to me like you're probably not eating enough :-o
    Deffo up the water. Weigh every day if you want (I know I do), but only 'chart' weekly numbers :)

    Hey hun, i think im having roughly 800-1000 cals, im not hungry, what im eating is doing the job so im not starving myself or anything.. but maybe thats not enough, im still new 2 this not really looked into it all...
    I guess all i can do is wait and see what i lose by the end of the week :) xx

    If you're only eating 800-1000 AND burning off extra too, your wee body will be desperately keeping hold of the weight :) Feed/fuel it more generously, and watch the pounds roll off.....odd concept, I know, but by golly it's the answer! xx

    Im with Iwillsoonbeslim on this one. You are not eating enough, especially if you are exercising too. You won't be loosing much because your body is holding onto it to keep you going.
    If you are eating that few calories, I wouldn't exercise. :)
