Hi All,

My weight loss (I think) is not as fast as I thought it would be, well for Feb anyway.
I was 100% CD last week, back at the gym, upped the water and activity...but still only 3lbs.:(
I am retaining water and it's not TOTM....could it be caffine causing the water retention, I am drinking about 3 cups of mint tea, 4 cups of normal tea on top of my 5ltrs a day.....?

Water retention....Could it be caffine??
Gave myself some tough love...here's how it went...
"Boo-hoo only 3lbs I worked so hard"
"Hang on a minute...3lbs off is better than last week and the week before!"
"And another thing...thats 2 and 1/2 stones in 2 months!!!
"Get a grip woman...that's more than you've ever lost before in 2 months"
"Stop comparing yourself with everyone else and get on with it!!!"
"YEAH....3lbs off....you rock!!!"
:D:D:D:D:D

3lbs in a week is fantastic. If you go to a slimming club they tell you to expect 1 1/2- 2lbs a week. You've lost 50 - 100% more than that.

By all means try cutting down on the caffeine if you think it will help, though.

Good luck!

Oh, and you do rock!
