    I just couldn’t be any sadder. 7 days of following orders religiously– approved foods only, logging every morsel that goes in my mouth (love ‘my fitness pal’, used it way before starting this) and I have not lost ONE stinking pound! Tough week, 3 days of walking was all I got in, but still…
    I was so excited to think after trying every diet ever invented that THIS was going to be the one that actually worked for me. I’ll pick my chin up off the floor and keep at it, but I just needed to vent.

    Yes, keep your head up! Are you drinking lots of water too?

    Drinking 64 oz a day. I have to put a dash of lemon or lime juice, sometime a couple fresh basil leaves, otherwise I just can’t get that much down

    You should be drinking 1/2 your weight… that many ounces of water a day. It is really important!

    Consistency is key! Keep going… you will see results. Water is key, and follow the approved foods list.

    I feel your pain, Mia. You must have a very low metabolism and your body is slowing down with the reduced calorie intake. Very hard to keep following a regimen when you are not seeing the results. Especially when others are losing weight. I’m sure you have thought of this, but what does your doctor say? Is there something going on that is holding onto those pounds? Perhaps thyroid? My body does not want to let go of the weight either, and if I don’t stay on plan, I gain. Don’t give up, focus on eating healthy. Good luck!

    18 Days now. Thanks for the encouragement!
    I’m pretty convinced that my menopausal body and metabolism is paying for all the fad diets and starvation diets of my 20’s & 30’s (& even 40’s)
    I had blood tests done about 3 months ago, and other than an alarmingly low level of Vitamin D (which I have been taking now) there is nothing else to explain hanging on to these pounds so hard.
    I am down 3 pounds now, which is better than zero pounds, but of course I was hoping for faster results.
    I absolutely must say though, I FEEL better on this diet than I have on others. Even though the scale isn’t reacting like I thought, I know my ‘front-butt’ is smaller – I can see that, and I really do need to take measurements of all my jiggly areas. (Keep forgetting to get a seamstress measuring tape!)
    Still plodding along, and will continue to do so.

    Hi Mia,
    I’m a newbie, just starting my second week. I followed what I thought was a 1000 calorie plan for my first two days and found the USDA Food Tracking site on day 3. I’m glad I went and added in day 1 and 2 in the daily meal tracking. To my surprise, I was actually consuming 1200 and 1250 calories. Now I work out my meal plan daily and have been able to stay in the 1000 calorie range + or – 10 to 20 calories, which usually relate to olive oil or coconut oil as I use half a teaspoon and the tracking site I’m using doesn’t adjust for a half teaspoon.
    Here is the link for the site, it’s free and there are no pop-up advertising: https://supertracker.usda.gov/login.aspx?loggedOut=1

    Don’t give up, I managed to lose 4 lbs and wouldn’t have been able to do it if I hadn’t used the food tracking site, as I would have continued to eat more calories even though I thought I was following the plan.

    Good Luck!

    I too noticed the “feeling better” the first week.
    Keep with the program, I think that weight loss is hard because of hormones/menopause. However, this type of food will normalize your hormones. It may just take your body a bit longer for those hormone levels to start to normalize, but as you follow the program I am sure that your weight loss (and the feeling better) will accelerate.

    Thanks Linda for this site.
    I notice that when I don’t go for a daily walk, the calories I burn per day on my Fitbit tracker are perilously close to 1000.

    Hi everyone! I’m doing a modified round two and I’m on day 4. I have no idea if I’ve lost weight. My doctors told me not to focus on weight. If I’m eating healthy and watching my portions I’m winning, right? Otherwise I obsess and my mood gets connected to that number. I go to pulmonary rehab where we get weighed every time. It is tough not to worry about that number on the scale! They are willing to weigh me backwards now so no problems! It is a bit rough to give up that control but I think I’m going to feel better not paying attention to the weight numbers. My doctors are and that’s good enough for me!

    Oops i gain nearkly 2 kgs after taking the PS1000 drops – all i did was following the plan for 5 days and once i introduced carb during the weekend, to my surprise, the weight has gone up by more than what i started with.

    Has anyone experienced this before

    Congratulations with the 3 pounds. That’s a huge loss. The problem with being on all kinds of diets previously is that your body metabolism adapts. Your metabolism takes time to get with the program. Apparently hormones play a large role in weight loss and I think that given some time, this plan will moderate those out of whack hormones.
    I too notice that weight loss is much slower than weight gain. I have now completed 4 weeks and I am down 12.1 pounds. I am interpreting this positively. They are pounds lost, not gained and I feel so much better. They key is to learn these new habits and keep them for my lifetime.
    I am working to be 50 pounds lighter, but I am focusing on the next 8– focusing on 10 pound goal increments.

    Love all the support here.

    It is frustrating to not loose. Depending on what you want to loose total and water etc. Are you getting enough sleep? I get super frustrated if i dont see a loss and go off..but I have found that is not a good thing as I cant seem to get back on.
    Make sure you are eating enough and getting alot of veges fiber etc..
    Hang in there.
