    :( i get weighed tonight and my scales are only showing 1lb loss this week...

    why????

    i am hardly having any 'movements' so i am thinking constipation is to blame...

    it is add a meal week but i have only had 2 'meals' and def no cheating.

    any ideas why my loss is soooo measly???

    lots of us have a week of sts or small loss ,Its mainly to do with water retention (if a woman that is ).But also our boddies pleateau sometimes it stops lossing while it adjusts things if you were to measure yourself you will be lossing inches Im sure .Dont give up yet I always have a big loss within 2 weeks of small loss/sts .xx

    Dont worry.... Some weeks the scales take longer to budge than other weeks!!! I've STS x 2 despite sticking to the programme 100% at all times - its a bit disappointing but nothing more - you will still be losing fat, no doubt about it hun xxxx

    Hey hun,

    Don't despair - it is quite normal for your body to need to adjust and redistribute water ;). I know it's disheartening, but you've probably lost inches this week instead - have a check with a tape measure.

    Most importantly see it as a positive - you have still lost 1 lb, still a loss no matter how big/small and I'm sure you'll be in for a big loss next week.

    Hang in there, stay positive
    xx

    Hey its quite normal, I'm sure our bodies just go "Nooooooo where is all my fat going?!!!"

    You still have til tonight for them to change anyways, I take it you get weighed on CDC scales tonight? They may show something completely different.

    Good luck, don't be disheartened. It will all come off in a rush another week!

    wait until your weigh in and see what cdcs scales say sometimes it drops off at the last minute, also water retention and constipation can cause you to hold on to the pounds. And although it might be a pound tonight look at the bigger picture and see what a brilliant acheivement you have had over the last 4 weeks , well done you xx

    Whatever your weight loss is this week you have done fantastic to lose 2 stone in 4 weeks. I'm on week7 and haven't lost that much. Well done you're doing really well the average is a stone a month and you have doubled that. Keep your chin up chick and think positive.
