    Thanks Becky , looking at your start weight and weight loss on week 4 , has enthused me . As I was about the same weight as you and lost 11lbs the first week.
    100% on ss , have not cheated at all , which is great and I feel good . I know I will have a better weight loss next week and hoping to lose 1 1/2 stone in four weeks and be 2 stone lighter by the 6th week.

    Platinumbabe - I had TOTM week 2, lost 2 lbs then stuck with it and lost a stone in week 3 (week 3 was more 10 days though).

    Stick with it! :)

    Hi Su !

    TOTM definitely affects some ladies ( me included, as I used to gain
    2 lb every TOTM, even though sticking 100% to the diet, but then have a really good loss the week after !! )

    they say your weight fluctuates by up to 6 - 7lb around TOTM so you know youve been 100%, the scales will show it after!
