    Hi :) I was just curious to see if anyone else had a rubbish weight loss in their first week and struggled to get into ketosis?

    This is day 7 for me, and apart from a minor hiccup (a slight amount of grated cheese) I have stuck to plan!

    I have lost a measly 5 pounds, if that at all. Due to last week weighing in on the evening and the 5 pounds is going off my morning weight. Last night i was 4 pounds heavier than this morning so that would have meant a 1 pound loss!

    Anyway after buying some ketostix I discovered I am NOT in ketosis :-/

    I have tweaked my plan to trial for a week, having no bars, no skimmed milk, no coke zero and only 1 meal pack and 3 shakes.

    Has anyone else not really lost much?! If anything?!

    In the past I've had a rubbish starting weight but this time not so shabby!

    I lost 2lbs in my first week 2 years ago but then lost 13 in my second week so I wouldn't worry! I wasn't in ketosis either! The only thing I could put it down too was I wasn't drinking enough which is always my problem I get sick if peeing all the time ha! I know it's annoying especially when you see others losing loads but stick with it it will happen I bet you do what I did and have a whopping loss next we :) im a similar weight and want to get down to 10.7 Ish for may so will find your diary and try help to keep you going :)

    Alrighty, I understand your frustration but hopefully you lose more next week. 5lbs is a good loss though but I understand most lose more than that. Also, be sure to drink your water. Good luck. :)

    I haven't started this diet yet but if it is anything like Cambridge then some of the meals and bars have more carbs in then just the shakes. I try and avoid these types of things for the first 2 weeks as recommended by my Cambridge consultant. Though like I said, I only have Cambridge experience at the moment.

    Yeh see what you mean... But my start weight was an evening weight and the 5 pounds was going off a morning weight and I usually weigh 4 pounds heavier on an evening which would be a 1 pound loss... I'm Going to stick with it, next week will be MY WEEK :) x x
