    Hi everyone, I am new on here and have been on the cd for 9days and lost 7lb.
    I've been reading your stories and taking in all your advice and wondered how you cope when you have little weight losses like 2lb? I started the cd as a faster way to get me nearer to goal any suggestions and should I prepare myself:eek:

    2lb losses are brilliant,and you boy adjusts better.Weight loss shouldnt be seen as a race ..it should be about healthy loss. 2lbs is a hell of a lot of fat to lose..... keep up the good work

    I had one week with only a 2lb loss and my CDC looked at me as if she expected me to be upset - but I knew I hadn't cheated and I was just glad that 2lb more were gone. You have to be philosophical about this and look at the big picture. It makes sense that your body needs to adjust from time to time, so don't ask miracles of it... already its doing amazing things with the help of CD!
    Like many of us, I secretly want fast results... who doesn't? But I also know that getting there is what counts... and keeping the weight off counts even more. So CD is not a quick fix, it's a great tool for losing weight & in the meantime sorting out the reasons we got that way to start with, so we can make different choices in the future.
    I guess STS weeks and gain weeks are even more challenging, but if we get our heads switched on about all this we can handle it! As Serena says, the winners here are those who stick with CD through the ups and downs... they're the ones who get results!

    Hey a 2lb loss is good, do what I do and convert each loss to raw sausages i.e. 8 sausages equal lb (approx) so a 2lb loss and hey presto you just lost 16 sausages.

    That's the spirit, stick at it this week and you might get more reward for your hard work next week. 2lbs though, whether you think of it as sugar, lard or sausages is still good - well done.

    My CDC is only coming to me every two weeks now, I thought I'd mind as I would have to wait an extra week before finding out how I'd done. I am now quite glad as I'm hoping it will help even out any little losses.

    2 lb losses are ok, as I get nearer to goal I don't expect massive losses anyway. My cdc always shows me what 2 lb of fat looks like.

    Vamp, don't be disheartened... look at your overall losses and keep it in perspective! I used to do SW too and sometimes got 2lb loss on a good week... NEVER ever got 11lb loss in one week though!!!! CD won't let you down if you keep your head in the right place and stick with it. Go, girl!
