    My waist measurement changes all the time because my tummy is so big. Maybe it is less held in or whatever when you measure. Also with your period due your tummy swells up and you retain fluid. I'm not having good losses either just now but we will manage as apparently CD cannot fail us.

    Hi Faith, I think we can expect alot from this diet in a small space of time but our bodies need time to process the changes going on in it. I measure myself quite a bit and notice fluctuations all the time. So from Monday to today with your period due on Friday I expect the gain is just part of your cycle.

    Also, you aren't doing too much exercise for this diet are you or were you doing the same exercise before you started? I know a couple of weeks where I have been on long bike rides and long walks my losses have slowed - like this week where I have been really active?

    CD does work if you stick with it. Get past your TOTM and see how you do in the next 7 days.
