    I only lost 5 lbs and am feeling abit low about it :( .

    She said that the expected weightloss in the first week is 7+ lbs and asked if i had stuck to just the 3 sachets a day. I was really pi##ed off :mad: because thats all i had, apart from 1 day when i had 2 sachets because i had to throw the other down the sink and i had no spare.

    She said that it could have been fluid retention or stress. I said i am a natural stresshead :rolleyes: so i hope its not that.

    I tried to measure myself to see if i had lost any inches but i was coming up with more than last week so i just left it.

    I guess 5 lbs is a start. Fingers crossed i do well next week.

    Hope everyone else is doing well xx :)

    Thanks Debz, i really appreciate your support.
    I guess i'm just looking for super fast results, especially because we have to go without food which is difficult.

    Lets see what happens next week

    Thanx again xx

    Hey Maybe - 5lbs is a blinking good start. Just think if you did that for the next 4 weeks - thats 20lb!

    Chin up Xx

    Hi there, if you've got a set of scales - try to find something around your house that weighs 5lbs - maybe some bottled water - maybe even carry it around for half an hour and you'll soon realise how fantastic a 5lb loss is... Don't worry that you didn't get a 7lb plus loss - it may just mean that you had a smaller glycogen store to get rid of, and you were burning your fat away a day early...

    Stay positive - 5lbs is a brilliant amount to lose...

    Lots of love,

    Awww, thanks you guys :grouphugg: .

    I really needed cheering up. I feel alot better now, you guys are great :)

    TTey68/Jas, I never thought of those points. I might try to find something that weighs 5 lbs, i might have some hand weights somewhere, lol :p . 5lbs over 4 weeks would be great.

    I hope you are all doing well with your diets.

    Thanks again xxxxx

    5 lb is a fab weight loss, have you tried to lift that much in weight yet to see how much that has gone forever???

    Its not that long ago when I remember that I was also unhappy with my 1st weigh in and Id only lost 3 1/2lb despite being 100% good. Now Im 4st and 2lb down and Im so glad I never gave in....

    week 2 brought me a 6 1/2 lb loss, in a few months you will really be noticing a BIG difference.....keep going and you will be looking fab for summer.....remember its going to be a hot one think of all those summer clothes you will need

    Good luck and well done

    Hi Maybe Baby, for my 2 pennorth I think 5lbs is Fab, and I have to point out that you do have a lot less to loose than some, so, to put this into perspective, I lost 80lbs or thereabouts, in my first week I lost 7lbs, this means that you have half of what I have to lose yet lost more than half of the 7lbs that I lost in my first week!!!

    Now, if I havent sent you to sleep then you will be a happy bunny, Im rambling now, which usually means Ive lost the plot!!! I guess what I mean is that 5lbs is a massive loss and you should be darn proud!!!

    hi maybe baby
    so sorry you feel disapointed, but 5 lbs is not at all bad, you may well have a bit of hormonal water retention, just keep drinking your water and it will all fall away!
    something that helps me is to say, well last week I was 45 lbs overweight this week im not anymore, and by next week you will def only be 30 something pounds overweight, how much better does that sounds than 45!!
    keep the faith babe!!

    Thanxs guys :hug99: . The support from everyone is so great. I feel much more positive now and proud of my 5lbs loss :D .

    Its all about looking at it in the long term and as long as i lose my stone a month so that i am ready for summer, i will be happy :) . I guess i felt like i should have lost more because of how dificult the first week was, especially with the cravings and missing food so much.

    Lets see how i do with week 2 (it feels good to say i am on week 2, :) hehe)!!
