    Hi Ladies and Germs

    This is now entering my week 3 of Cambridge

    Started at 12st 13 and lost 7lbs first week

    Next week lost a further 6 lbs I am now 12st 1

    But for somereason so far this week...nothign has shifted, Im drinking 2litres a day and eating the following , a bar, a shake and a step two meal. So basically Im doing Step 2. Im doing 1 hour powerwalk every other day.

    Has anyone else experienced this total standstill week 3 started on Thursday and Im stuck at 12st 1
    VERY disappointed.

    BUT WILL NOT GIVE UP

    A friend said this happens and then suddenly you'll drop. I just didnt expect any form of plateau this early. I still have 2 stone to lose.

    Cheers

    You are not that overweight and you have lost nearly a stone in 2 weeks! Look at my stats, I was heavier to start and lost less than you, you might lose a pound this week, then 4 or 5 again the week after. Just try not to scale hop every 5 minutes and kinda tell your mind that there will be weeks of slower losses, but there is usually a bigger loss the week to follow. I had a 2lb last week, and I am SS 100%, hopefully I will get a 4lb or something this week.

    Hi Dayna, please don't get disheartened, as Tinka said if you do get a small loss this week you may get a bigger one to compensate next week. I'm a nightmare like you I am on my scales all the time, time I got rid of them I think! Stick with it, good luck.

    Dayna,

    I'm in exactly the same position... This is my 3rd week and since thursday the scales have STS. First week I lost 11lb and the second I lost 8lb. Obviously don't expect big losses like that everyweek... but something please!!!!!

    Step 2 - as in SS+? or 1000cal?

    If SS+ you need to be having 3 shakes/cd packs a day and try to up your water by a wee half litre.

    Other than that don't panic, everyones week 3 loss is a bit lower compared to the first two. Its just your body evening out.

    My week 2 loss was the small one, I lost 1.5 lbs, but following week lost 5.5lbs. You do catch up with yourself.

    Thanks girls.

    Ive just got a new counsellor, my old one was a bit cold and unhelpful.

    Shes told me to up my water also and because Im also very blocked up Im going to take Senakot.

    Lexie Dog: Im having a bar, a shake, and a low carb step 2 meal, I cannot stomach the third shake, If I dont drop after the laxatives and water upping then Ill add in the shake as that will be the missing piece of the puzzle.

    Thanks for being so kind a supportive ladies. I will not give up until I get to 9st 10.

    Im no quitter.

    I just need a poo. LOL
