    I'm coming to the end of my 2nd week and this has been mentally much harder than the 1st. In the 1st week I could see and feel the weight dropping off me but this week the scales have hardly moved and I can't feel much difference.

    Is this all due to the fact that this week was my TOTM?
    I would have thought most bloating would have occured just before and at the begining of my period. So why such a slow down in weight loss?

    Last week I lost 11lb and this week I think i am going to be lucky if I make 4lb. Is that normal?

    TOTM seems to vary- it hasn't made much impact on me, but some people gain during TOTM, especially as we drink so much. Also, you must expect a big diff between wk1 and wk2- most people who have a huge wk 1 loss like yourself come right down to a 4/5lb loss in the second week. People who start with a smaller wieght loss sometimes see a similar weight loss the second week- we have both types in my group- the steady eddies who lose 4-5lbs every week and people like me who lost big (1 stone in first 2 weeks) and then settled at 3lbs or so per week- at week 10 we are all pretty much at the same weight loss, with one or two exceptions. Rambling now- but overall anything you don't lose on TOTM this week you will prob lose next week!

    TOTM has a great impact on me! I don't lose much during but I really notice it week after so just keep hanging in there. It will be worth it!

    TOTM - I only last 2lbs in those weeks but it evened up the following week - my LLC said it was water retention.
