    Have been lurking for the past 2 weeks since I started the CD - so first off, hello everyone :)

    It has been great to read the boards and see your journeys...I have a good CDC and she's been fab but getting other tips and stories is lovely too.

    I'm a bit frustrated today! 2nd weigh in and I'm losing weight sooo slowly!

    I lost 7 stones on my own over the last 5 years, 1.5 stones of that since March this year. I started the CD 2 weeks ago at 13:13, feeling I needed a boost and to get over a bit of a plateau ... now my goal (11 st) is quite near I just want to GET there!

    First week was TOTM and I lost 5.5 lb. This week I'd expected to lose loads more, but only dropped 3.5 lb.

    Now I know that's still great, but I was losing 3.5 lb when I was on 1,000 calories healthy eating, and seeing other people's massive weight losses in the first few weeks is a bit daunting ...am I being unrealistic here? Do I need a slap around the chops with a frozen Tetra? Should I just lower my expectations?

    Cheers and xx

    Thank you very much for your replies: you're right, it's early days and it needs to settle in.

    Anyway - who's holding the stopwatch? Just as long as we get there ... :)

    Debs, a slap in the mush with a foodpack would be much kinder, you're right!!

    Cheers everyone
