ooh week 3 rears its ugly head...from what i gather week 3 is often a disappointing loss week. I'm not looking forward to it personally.

the thing that is the most annoying is I have been 100 percent faithful to the diet. Even when OH scoffed down a pizza right next to me. I know week 3 is hard and I am still gritting my teeth and determined I am just worried what another small loss next week might do to my willpower
All i can say is percivere there are times when losses are smaller than we expect or feel we deserve but quite often they are followed by a big loss i know this doesnt help how you feel right now but you will get there just dont loose faith in youself or the diet it works and your body will catch up soon enough have you checked your measurements? you may find you've lost inches. xx

I usually have my bar in the morning with about 1 litre of water whilst at the computer on minimins

I have a shake or a tetra at around 2 o clock and drink another litre of water throughout the afternoon.

I have my third shake when I get in around 6 o clock with a little more water.

and my last shake at around 8:30 when OH has his dinner.(with more water)

overall i drink about 3 litres a day.

Dont give up you have a great weight loss in 3 weeks sometimes our body holds on to fluid for different reasons, you know you have been 100% and thats brilliant you are in ketosis and burning fat im sure next week you will have a good loss.

Good luck

I have a nasty feeling that my 3rd WI tonight will be less than spectacular too. I've been 100% but it's my TOTM.

Stick at it as there is no way we can't lose if we stick to this :hug99:

This week I am going to start doing some gentle exercise such as swimming (that's if I can squeeze myself into my cossie :eek:) failing that it will be power walking on the treadmill :eek:

Week 3 is about the week where your body is like are we really loosing weight? And you need to show it who is boss here. 'YES WE ARE TELL IT AND SHOW IT WITH ANOTHER WEEK 100%"

Oh yeah and I can see a loss on the scale .... take that body!! (this will be you next week)

Your doing well , if you can't drop to 3 stick on your 4 cos you are still losing weight , but it will be slower

Have you been measuring yourself too? I found on week 3 that my weight loss slowed down dramatically but i was still losing inches (and thats what really counts).
When your body loses fat really quickly it starts panicking and instead of leaving the cells empty it fills them with water - so you ARE losing fat but its not registering on the scales.

agree with rayven. week 4 I had bad weight loss but when i measured myself had great results. the best advise i got was if you only lost 2lbs doing a vlcd then imagine what results a normal diet would have had. you should work out the adverage weight loss, not week by week

I would measure yourself. You prob lost inches this week than weight which is all good.

I would talk to your cdc about dropping down to 3 shakes a day too if you think you can drop down.

Dont give up or be disheartened you can do this.
There you are!!! did you get my pm I sent ystday, I hope I did it right!!! ha ha.. dont worry about your loss, I stayed the same!!! do you want to have a team chat.. names etc..


I can do this.
its still going in the right direction, well done.
