    Yup - me too!

    Wk 1 = -9
    Wk 2 = -2
    Wk 3 = -4
    Wk 4 = -2
    Wk 5 = -5
    Wk 6 = 0
    Wk 7 = -2

    But my average weight loss over the time is just over 3.5lbs which I suppose is acceptable.

    Can you try increasing your water intake that is supposed to help - although I drink in excess of 5 litres each day!

    Wish I could be more helpful but it may help you to know you aren't the only slow loser?

    Me to, it's relly frustrating :mad: and like you i keep thinking i could get 2 - 2.5 lb on a different diet and be able to eat but we should stick with it and i am sure it will all come right in the end:D

    I suppose you are right...my average is 4 pounds a week which is ok..I think if it wasnt for my holiday I wouldnt mind...its just if it dosnt come off quickly on a VLCD when you are feeling deprived and socialy muted....it makes u question its worth....only occassionaly...but maybe I wont gain much on holiday either.....fingers crossed

    I was feeling the same with only a 2 1/2 lb loss this week.

    Until I thought about it and realised that if I remove the word only from that sentence, a 2 1/2 lb loss is a great weight loss!

    I have tried every diet going, and have never had regular successful losses like this. Previously, I doubt that I would have lost a whole stone in two months, let alone in excess of 3 stone.

    There are no miracles, but this diet comes close!

    Keep going girls!
