    Dont be too disheartened hun, that 1lb is a pound thats never going to be on your body again!! Its still off and like you say you are on your period and blipped!!

    You are doing fab, dont let it upset you just try and stay focused and get guzzling that water!!

    Lets have a fab week together xx

    It's 1lb in the right direction!! You have identified why it's a small loss, so use that to focus on a 100% week and a nice loss next weigh in :)

    To be honest, you might only have lost 2 pounds in week 2 anyway - that often happens, much to everyone's disappointment. No one's too sure why, but it's generally thought the body's clinging to water to get over the shock of a big week one loss. So the fact that you still lost a pound, despite having a blip and TOTM is a really good sign.

    Stay 100% this week - and not only will you lose the weight you should lose over the course of next week, you'll lose the weight you would've lost this week as well!

    That's the thing about blips - the temporary weight gain they cause is disproportionate to the damage you actually did - 150 extra calories or so can't possibly make much difference to the fat you definitely will have lost (but isn't showing up on the scales because you regained some water and glycogen).

    Water's surprisingly heavy stuff... :)

    1lb is still a loss - which is great. My CDC said never think about the weekly losses - always focus on total loss - its been a great approach for me - so in 2 weeks you've lost 10lbs - thats impressive. Keep going ;-)
