    Started on Day 18 today and I must admit that I am feeling a little discouraged because I haven’t lost much weight this week so far. I am down 14 pounds but it just seems like the scale won’t move. I am sticking to the plan, drinking my water and continuing on the journey. I think it will be best for me to not get on the scale everyday. I can definitely feel the difference with 14 pounds gone and others are noticing as well. I know that every ounce and every inch lost is a success…just have to get out of my head!

    Hi Kim,

    Just want you to know that I went thru something similar during week 3. My first two weeks went great and then the 3rd week hit and I got discouraged. During about a 10 day stretch from week 3 and into week 4 I didn’t lose as much weight but then it picked back up again around week 5. I am currently in my 7th week and again I am seeing a plateau, but I can feel the difference even-though the scales don’t reflect it.

    Day 20 on Phase 1, about two pounds lost this week, not the big numbers I was hoping for but still a lost so I will take it. Looking forward to more progress for week 4 which starts tomorrow. I am proud of myself for sticking to it and not getting giving in! The journey continues….

    Don’t give up! I am in week 9 and I can tell you that I have had a couple of days when I even gained a bit. VERY discouraging. But I stayed the course, and the weight loss continued. Kind of like the stock market–ups and downs, but definitely an overall downward trend. So take heart.

    Thank you! It helps to know that others have experienced the same thing. I am definitely staying the course….it’s not a sprint it’s a marathon!

    Don’t give up! You can do it. Maybe try switching some of your foods and adding some exercise will be a plus. I know exactly how you feel, stay the course and stay positive, focus on how you are feeling and inches lost. Each pound gone is a victory! Celebrate those six pounds and keep marching forward!
