Week 1, disappointed...yah boo sucks!

Hi! I've just been for my first WI, lost 4lbs (whoop!), however I can't help thinking that it should have been more. I have been super good and followed the plan 100%, no cheating and loads of water. My CDC seemed pretty surprised too.

My inch loss was pretty good, but typically, I'm focusing on the negative. Is this a usual loss for a 1st week?

don't be too hard on yourself, if you lost that every week you will be well on target as women can expect to lose 1st a month and men 1 1/2 stone


Must do it this time

Hi, I only lost 6lbs in week 1 and was a bit disappointed after seeing people lose 10+ as I had 11st to lose but ive averaged over 5lbs a week over 6 weeks so dont worry.

Hi, 4lb really isn't bad for you. I've noticed that you haven't really got loads to lose, well compared to some of us on here, you're only overweight and no obese, so I imagine that is why. Last time I did CD the closer I got to 'normal' BMI the slower the losses got and I had to increase my exercise gradually to maintain them.

Seriously, 4lb isn't bad and if you can keep that up, or even drop to 3lb a week, you will be at goal in just a couple of months!

Thanks for your support everyone! You're right, I worked hard for that 4lbs so I'm going to be proud of it! and yes, it will all add up.:)

I'm going to have a choc mint shake to celebrate :D...keep on trucking!!!
