    Stop weighing yourself wait till your cdc weighs you, if you stick to it 100% the pounds will drop off.Good luck.

    Im seeing her tomorrow as I cant make Thursday, so will see her on day 6. I have stuck to it 100%, the only thing I might have done wrong is I have drunk about 3-4 litres of water, but I have felt thirsty and have needed the water.
    I just feel abit disheartened.

    Also - remember you can weigh more at different times of the day, sometimes even by as much as a few lbs ! I always used to weigh myself first thing in the morning (after having a pee!)...

    It all happens overnight, the night before weigh-in so stop peeping, it will not make it come off any faster, focus on completing each week, a day at time. This diet coes not fail. Even if you stay the same one week, you have a brilliant loss the following week. Stick at it.

    The first week is really hard but hang in there - im sure you'll have a big loss soon, your body is probably a little shocked i once stayed the same for 2 weeks then lost 13lbs. It will happen for you hun x

    try and get weighed weekly only. I know its hard, but if you worry about it every day, its much easier to break. Stick with it, and you will soon see results x

    Haha!!i know where youre coming from hun but think about it logically you are having between 450-600 cals a day your body could not function on that alone,if you are drinking all the water and in ketosis you are burning fat there is no other option,if the scales havent moved much then you are retaining water ,there is no other answer other than the obvious(constipation)they will move all of a sudden and once they start you will fly.Dont get too hung up on the scales hun,you may have lost more than you think anyway http://www.minimins.com/cambridge-diet-forum/61295-measuring-success-scales.htmlhave a read of this

    my cdc advised me not to go to the gym in the first week until my body was in ketosis and used to the decrease in calories etc, but i went walking as fast as i could for 30mins everyday so my heart rate was up and in the fat burning zone, it doesnt take much, which helped me as you dont get such massive losses if you dont have a large amount to lose, compared to some others x
