    Hello everyone. I have been doing slimming world for a week now. I have stuck to it 100%, no cheating, weighed out all my healthy extras, never going over my syns, checking everything on the syns online database... I did plenty of exercise, I even did a 5 kilometre race on Saturday and was feeling fab.

    Then last night I had my first weigh in and had GAINED 1 lb!! Its not my time of the month or anything. I was really disappointed. After the meeting my consultant looked through my food diaries and said I am eating all the right things and doing it right. He asked me a few more questions and I told him that I thought I would have gained because on slimming world I'd been eating loads more than before, but when I mentioned that I have been getting hungrier than before he decided that the problem must be that I'm not eating enough.

    I don't know what I should do as I have been eating loads. What do you all think? Should I stick with it? Has this happened to any of you? Could it be slimming world just doesn't work for me?

    Hi Jules

    I think you should stick at it. Perhaps you could post a diary on the food diary board here and people here can check your daily meals for a while.

    Try not to let your gain get you down. Trust the plan and give your body time to adjust :)

    Hey, I had a week much like you....i ran 7 miles on sunday as well as more throughout the week and i put on half a pound...maybe its the exercise as we have a marathon runner in group and everytime she has a marathon she puts on! You would think we should be going down not up though :) Stick at it! xx

    My consultant said that exercise can actually make you have a gain for a week or two, until your body gets used to it and you'll start losing again. Definitely stick with it though! I can understand why you're disappointed to have a gain in the first week, but you will start losing weight :) And you're eating loads of the right things so keep going. Good luck!

    Thanks guys. I have been sticking to it today as well and am still feeling good. Even if I don't lose much weight at least with sw I know I am getting a much more balanced diet. I do that 5km run most Saturdays and usually I absolutely hate every minute of it but last week I found it much easier- I think it was because I'd been eating good stuff all week and before I was on sw I used to avoid carbs as much as possible.

    Thanks again for all your friendly advice, I will let u know how I get on at next week's weigh in!

    can I also say well done on your weight loss and well done on sticking to it for 2nd week.

    Wanted to say that I notice you are a young loser - your body will be different to older peoples body and retain water and you may grow an inch unexpectedly etc and your weight loss may be a lot slower than other people.

    relax and enjoy - you don;'t have that much to lose but good luck for the rest of your journey.

    Lost one and a half this week! I'm obviously a bit of a slow coach but as long as it's coming off I don't care!
