    I realise that you don't lose as much as your first weigh in because you've lost water and glycogen. However, I'm 5 days into my second week and the scales are moving around 0.2-0.4lbs a day and I've losy 2lbs so far. I'm not expecting a huge loss, butI was was wondering whether people find that a couple of pounds just drops off before their weigh in. I've been 100% and I know that as long as I stick to it the weight will drop off, but it can be disheartening sometimes when you only see 0.2lbs off.

    I found that the scales dropped by the end of the week, just before weigh-in. Try not to scale-hop as it disheartens you - it did me, I'd thinnk "oh no, it's not working"! However it does. I try and only step on the scales once between weigh-ins and then wait for the big surprise on WI day. :)

    Good girl... stay off them until it's been a whole week and it will help you to see a bigger loss and not break your heart! Perhaps try the tape measure mid week???

    ok, teach yourself really early....stop scale hopping! It wont do you any good! Only go buy your CDC's scales on a weekly basis...if your being 100% hun, then the scales wont lie....!
