    I lost 2 pounds last week on exante which was my 1st week, and then weighed myself today and lost 3-4 pounds, the scales couldn't decide if it was 3 off or 4, as it kept changing every time I hopped on so maybe I have lost 3 half pounds but ile just go with 4 sounds better:D
    For the last 2 weeks I have been working out 3-4 times a week doing moderate impact exercise for 50 mins burning off 500 cals each session, should i just stop all exercises this week and see if I have a better loss next week? Or do you guys think that 2 pounds last week and 4 this week is fairly good considering i have already lost 2 stones? I dont know if the exercises are having a good impact or not.

    I'm drinking 4 litres a day and having 3 packs a day (bar in the morn, shake in afternoon and soup for dinner) I'm doing it 100%. NO CHEATS. Maybe I'm doing too much exercise...

    Ok last week was disappointing but this week youve had a brilliant result. Youre not going to lose more than 4lbs on an average week

    Have you tried measuring yourself to see if you've lost cms despite the scales not being friendly to you?

    I'm sure by next week you'll be feeling it in the clothes, which is even better than using a tape measure!! Good luck with it :)

    I suppose after loosing 2 stones I'm most prob not going to loose more than 4 pounds a week. I'le be very happy with 3-4 pound loss a week, but I'm scared i might loose 2 pounds or less next week. Wondering if i should stop the exercise for this week?

    NOONE loses more than 4lbs on an average week, regardless of how much they have to lose and if youre hoping for more than that youre going to be disappointed. Remember a stone a month averages at 3.5lbs a week. Weve all had 2lbs weeks too so dont worry :)

    Your quite a bit lighter than the average TS user so i think you should get that un smiling face off your signature and replace it with a whopping big smiley one..Thats a brilliant loss and should be celebrated xx

    Valentine is right! 4 lbs is loads!

    Your exercise could be building muscle as fast as your body is burning fat, and I am sure that muscle is heavier than fat per volume of it, though feel free to correct me if that's wrong!

    I think it's great that you're exercising though, it's gonna make maintenence so much easier :) xx

    Also if you've been consistently dieting and just transferring over you won't get that huge loss (which is only glycogen/water) that other new starters get - you should be grinning that your losses are more likely to be totally fat loss :D

    4lb is a good loss, and from you last weeks thread, it's what you were hoping for this week anyway ;)


    I am not sure of the impact of exercise on a VLCD.
    I just know that I wouldn't be happy not doing it, so I continue to do so, for my mind, as well as my body

    oh thanks guys so much for the encouragement:) I always say it and will say it again, I don't think i could pull through without all yr support:)... I know what you are saying is correct, i guess 6 pounds in 2 weeks is good considering I have lost weight and am quite closer to a healthy bmi. I think I'm just panicking because I'm going away fairly soon and want to loose this last 1.7 stones. I should be happy with 2 pound loss from now on i guess:) If i wasn't going away I wouldn't care as such, but its the panic thats bothering me. My cousin is trying to set me up with one of her good mates and I want to feel really confident when I see him (hes really cute:p) and I know I like myself and feel my best at 9.7 stones...I'm dreading loosing this last 10 kilos, bet its going to come off so slowly..

    Remember who you are, your personality, what's important about you, and ultimately whether you really like yourself are not dictated by what the scales say, and anyone else is unlikely to be able to tell the difference between 9.7 and 10.0 - it's only us that really can see every little thing and really notice the difference on the scales.

    thanks cybill i understand and appreciate what your saying, but I don't want to be 9.7 just because of the scales or what sounds good. I can tell a difference between 9.7 and 10, i have been there before and know that for me the best is 9.7. I guess everyone has a certain weight they feel comfortable with the most and i Think mines def that, but thanks again for the guidance:)
