Hello all and happy new year.

I stuck rigidly to 790 over the holiday period and was perfectly fine. Now after a 3 week wait and appt. with counsellor i found that is stayed the same weight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Is it possible?? To do 790 claories and stay the same weight for 3 weeks? Even the counsellor could not believe it and thinks her scales are wrong! Though its never happened before.

My own cheapo scales however have shown a drop, and cheeky weigh in's over the holidays showed a drop going down. But i ignored them as they were not 'official' weigh in's.

Can anyone explain?? Have been drinking 4 litres of water sometimes more a day plus the eve meal. No deviations!

That's a difficult one. You can get a lot of variation with water retention so it could be that. The other consideration is your metabolism having slowed so that it can actually maintain on 790. Marylyn has posted a lot about this problem on the Last Stone Mission thread. Now you are on 790 you can exercise more and improve your metabolic rate, this might help weight loss.
I hope you get off the plateau soon, it is very frustrating.

Water retention, TOTM...any number of reasons hun....

I know its disheartening, but there is NO WAY you can not have lost weight and it may just come off next week....there are a few people that have had the same problems as you so you are not alone!!

I know its hard when you cant see the results, but have you done your measurements to see if you hav lost that way? Stick with it....you arent having enough calories to have not lost so it has to come off at some point!

thank you for replies!

Just made me a bit crazy because it had been 3 weeks. I know you can reach a plateau but I didnt know that it could last a while!

Hey ho, may get down the gym and give the body a kick start. I really hope the body isnt getting used to 790 claories..I do want to eat normally again someday and keep weight balanced!!
