    Hi Everyone
    Well im not happy with my first weeks loss on this restart, not happy at all. This is the first time in ages i have managed to get through the whole week without eatting one little thing and all i lost was 6lb:mad: At this size i thought i would lose at least 12lb. Although it is totm so i am hoping for a bigger loss this week

    6 pounds is still a great loss, well done. Don't worry you are probrably retaining water with it being TOTM, these things even themselves out and I bet you have a good loss this week aswell. First week weight loss can also depend on other factors, such as diet the week before, if you had already cut back on carbs in preparation you wouldn't have so much carb weight to lose.

    I know it can be demoralising when you see others losing huge amounts, but you have done really well, and this diet does work so it will have to come off this week.

    Most of the loss in the first week is just water, so I wouldn't worry too much
    I think its best to average out losses over 4 weeks as that gives a much better picture of weekly losses.

    I say well done to you.....6 lbs is a great loss!
