    hey, you shouldn't be disappointed with a 1.6lb loss - a loss is a loss at the end of the day!

    i'm of the opinion that a slow loss is best for the most part - you're more likely to keep it off long term if you do that - i've been consistently losing 1-2lb a week and it's my 12th or so weigh day today. i haven't thus far encountered a plateau.

    maybe set yourself small targets? take it half a stone at a time, and when you reach your mini-goal then you'll have something to celebrate. i think that's how a lot of people on here do it and it keeps the motivation up, rather than thinking of it as one long hard slog to the finish line.

    don't feel demoralised - if you keep it up, then in 6 weeks you will have lost 10lb!! a third of the way there.

    good luck, and keep it up hun x

    Hi .... awww Im sorry noone replied to you as usually I have found it so supportive :)

    I am on my 3rd day of Cambridge Diet, no food basically. Shakes, Soups, Bars etc and lots of water. Its hard but gotta do it this time and coming on here is motivating me more and more.

    You need to decide what you know is best for you and then just go for it hun. Good luck x

    Well done on your 1.6lb loss. There was a thread the other day which had a picture of a 1lb lump of fat and its actually quite big! Good luck with your weightloss x
