Last week when I weighed in I was surprised to find I'd lost 4lbs in a week and struggled to understand how. I was pleased though and you all kindly celebrated with me, for which I am still grateful.

Sadly as I thought would happen this week is not such good news. I stayed on the plan and didn't cheat. I didn't expect to lose - I'd hoped to maintain (stay the same), but didn't even achieve that! :roll:

One and a half pounds have gone back on! I know it's because my body is saying losing 4lbs in one week is too much when I'm averaging 1.5 - 2lbs off a week.

However, I am still determined to continue chipping away at this. I have still lost 1 stone and 1lb. Now I go again.

    Don't be down-hearted, Grace, you have done and are doing very well. It is a marathon rather than a sprint and, as the overall trend is down you are doing more than OK. DD

    Thank you for your replies.

    It's disappointing but I'll keep going. When I'm waiting to go into class I hear a lot of the others say they've cheated, had this or that food they shouldn't have and they expect to gain. If I'd deviated from the plan I'd have been prepared more for this, but that's life.

    I'm a typical Taurean - stubborn so I'll not give up!

    I've had another good day on the plan and hope that next week will see that pound and a half go!

    System in panic mode isn't it? I saw a program about diets and the body tries to 'store' fat!!

    Next week you'll loose again Grace

    Well done though for staying positive :)
