    Anyone got any idea why I am not losing any weight? I lost 3lb the week before Christmas then came off the pills for Christmas week. Went back on them but haven't lost anything since then. I am doing the 30 day challenge on wii and I haven't gone over my fat grams at all. Its not time of the month, I am not menopausal and I have about 6 stone to lose.

    the only thing i can think of is your body is still catching up on what you had over christmas .....

    maybe give it a little bit...

    are you drinking plenty of water?
    what about your carbs? are you having too many?? sugar??
    (just a load of suggestions....)

    hope you are doing ok... have you tried measuring yourself.. i know when i sts i still lost inches which was a fab boost!

    Thank you for all the pointers I really appreciate it :) Today was official weigh day and I officially lost NO weight this week. I am more than a bit peed off because I have drastically reduced the calories I was eating and cut out all the bad snacking on sweets, crisps and cakes.

    I have realised however that I haven't been drinking water, its too cold. Therefore plan for now is to try and reinstate my water intake this week. I am also going to do a daily food diary post on my diary so I can see what I am doing and if anyone has any comments it would be appreciated. I am currently aiming for 1200 to 1300 cals a day and I am doing the 30 day challenge on wii

    Kind of Katie. I did the week before Christmas as my first week and lost three 3lb then came off the pills the night before Christmas eve. Over the Christmas period I put back on the three pound I lost plus another one. I started back properly last Saturday

    Dont lose heart, this happens. Up your water and fibre consumption & post a food diary. Remember, we're in this for the long haul. Good luck for this week.
