    ?Hey guys. I know i shouldn't have but i weighed myself tonight which is day 3. I was 13stone 10 and a half and the scales say I am 13stone 9 and a quarter!!! Soooo gutted cos I haven't cheated at all, have drank 3l water a day and have been swimming. I know a whole week hasn't been over yet but i still expected to have lost a bit more as its week 1 and i dont see the point in carrying on if i am only going to be losing at such a stupid rate! Anyone else the same? ;( :(

    what plan are you on?

    P.S. If its SS or SS+, no exercise for the first 2 weeks.

    There can be all sorts of reasons why...

    Firstly hormonal: are you taking any hormones like the contraceptive pill or anything?

    Are you due on?

    Secondly glycogen: Did you eat a lot of carbs before you started? It can take up to 4 days to get into ketosis though some get there much quicker. All depends on your normal diet.

    Also are you exercising above moderately? Moderately I mean a slow walk, a slow swim a short bike ride. All of these coupled with low energy intake can make the body go "hey what's up???? Store water chaps there is a famine on!"

    Keep with it. Tomorrow you will see a dip.
