    I eat all my daily points. Perhaps I shouldn't. Tried eating weekly, not eating weekly, not eating carbs, exercise, no exercise. I am the same weight as when I started. I have been 100% totally and utterly, promise, apart from christmas. I ahve lost 1.5lbs in 5 weeks. Nothing this week. What do I do? Consultant just says keep at it. But why? It's not working!!! I think I may ahve to go on the shakes!! Absolute last thing I want, and scared I'll be on them for life if I start

    OMG!! I'm the exact same!!

    1.5lbs in 10 weeks getting sick of it!! I've also tried eating more/less, exercising more/less, drinking more/less water, gave up booze for the first 4 weeks, no change. Gave up choc for 3 weeks, no change. Reduced bread last week, no change. If I dont see a good change at tomorrows WI I'm back off to SW and will just have to be hitler-style with myself in terms of portion control. Am just fed up, could weep, and when I STS last week I actually did!!! I really thought PP was the programme to end all programmes an would be the healthy way to drop weight. I've now spent almost £60 and been stressed and sad for weeks, for what, 1.5lbs!!

    Sorry couldn't be a ray of sunshine telling you it'll all be ok, at the moment I don't believe it will be!

    It really looks to me like you're not eating enough. Even if you added points for your fruit / veg you're probably only just hitting your 29 dailies and then exercising a fair few of them away which is leaving you with too high of a calorie defecit to allow your body to lose weight. I know it sounds really bizarre. There's some great threads on myfitnesspal which explain it, why you should always maintain 1200 cals even after exercise etc. Have a read. X

    Do you know what, those weeks are well within points, but don't look that healthy. Too many snacks!! The week before that was spot on healthy and I lost half a lb. I also gained 14 Aps that I didn't use. I still think I deserve to have lost something those 2 weeks, but not looking as healthy looking back as I had convinced myself. Gonna have a perfect, body is a temple week, and see what happens. If the scales don't budge then it's shakes for me!!!

    How do people lose weight on VLCDs. I don't understand. I ate more the followin week and lost nothing, though I must admit, the extra food wasn't healthy food. Gonna ahve a week of eating all dailies, on proper healthy food, eating some weeklies and APs, on healthy food. If no change then, I'll ahve to think twice. It ahs made me think writing it doe=n like that all at once. I stick it in the esource and don't think about it, but writing it out made me think, so gonna write a tracker too. Or do diary at end of every day on here!!!

    Yeah quite a different two weeks but probably reflecting your frustration. Were you losing on discover? Are you finding what your are eating now different to then? How much weight have you to lose? X

    You will of course lose if you don't give your body enough calories, it just makes it much harder if you're not eating enough to meet your bmr (the no of calories your body needs to maintain it's weight without doing anything). When I'm at a pc tomorrow I'll try and find you the info I read and post it x

    I'm 5' 3" and 11st 12lbs. So should be at least 2 stone lighter. I was losing very slowly, but losing ion discover, though didn't start that long ebfore christmas. You're right. They were reflecting my frustration. Getting fed up. But writing it all down at once did bring it home to me that it wasn't that healthy after all. well within pints though, and they say you can use your points on what you like. But need to do better than that. I think the rpeviosu 2 weeks, I ahd been so so good, alost next to nothing, and it's starting to fall apart now. Will go abck to spot on week this week. Both health, and points and see what happens

    Have you tried not having so much Junk food. if that is hard for you to do,try having one day no junk the next day maximum 4 pp on junk so you don't feel you are depriving yourself.. Sugar plays havock with your blood sugars and metabolism and without it the body stabilises much better and can absorb more of the nutrients from the other foods, giving your more energy and less hunger. Try to balance your diet more by having a good selection from all the food groups and at mealtimes, again make sure your plate is balanced. Some of your meals would not keep a person going until the next meal so you dig into chocolate sweets cereal etc to meet that hunger. With proper meals this balance will change and you will have less cravings for the junky food. I think it is wise at the beginning of the day to work out how many points you are going to use for a meal eg on 29 points you could have 6 for breakfast 7 for lunch and 8 for your evening meal. Two snakcs of 2 points between meals and 4 left for emergencies like tomato sauce, extra milk etc Good luck

    You are so right! Don't think I'd realise how much rubbish I'd eaten until I wroe it all out, despite putting it in the esource tracker as I go. I think last week was worst for it as I was so fed up and frustrated.

    Do u feel any slimmer? Clothes fitting better? Measuring urself?

    I did slimming world about 10 years ago n sts for about 2 months after losing 7 lbs in first week! I was gutted. I started measuring myself and this reflected a change whereas the scales were stuck. I cried whilst on them one week too! Eventually the weight came off. Bless u. Dieting sux x

    It's just my humble opinion, but I think you're eating too many carbs, and sugary ones. The snacks you have are mostly sugary, sometimes you have cereals AND porridge for breakfast... sounds a bit too many carbs. Do you have your cereals without the milk? Because you don't put milk down in the count most of the times.

    For example:
    cereal and porridge for breakfast: where is the milk? 6 points of sweets throughout the day... too much sugar! Your insulin level goes up and your body retains the fat and only burns glucose. You only had satsumas and broccoli as fruit and veg? How many satsumas? How much broccoli? Are you having your 5 a day and are you following the healthy guidelines?

    Another example:
    here evn worst, where are the vegetables? Only a banana for lunch? Your body needs fuel throughout the day, and having 6 pp of sweets as snacks doesn/t give it the nutrition that it needs. Sweets are high in sugar and fat and low in everything else, they raise your insulin level and make you become ravenous and hungry very quickly, forcing your body to retain fat and burn muscles. Also, as I said already you haven't followed the healthy guidelines. This time you do count the milk though.

    In my opinion there are many things that would be better done differently to incrase your chances of losing weight. I'm sorry if maybe I sound harsh! I just want to help!
