I thought for sure at my weigh in I lost weight this past week. This is only week to for me on MF.....

I lost NADA...nothing...zip...zilch....its not my TOM....I was 100% on the program.....

I weighed my L&G....Had nothing extra.....my Counselor said I wasn't getting the right healthy fat with my L&G....I don't ever use salad dressing....so I just ate my salads plain....

UGH! Frustration........

Really? this is a super bummer for me....and I was in a crudola mood all day because of it. At first it looked like I gained...then I took of a vest and some bracelets...and that showed my weight the same...I was wearing heavier pants (wore light capris the first 2 weigh ins).....

Anyway....so I am sad...very sad....this is week 2 for me weigh in....such a bummer!.

Had to vent....ugh......

Oh, I'm so sorry you're in a bad mood. Many people experience very low/no loss at week 2 or 3. Your body has to adjust. Plus, you said yourself that you were wearing heavier pants. Many things can affect that number, like how much more you had to eat/drink before weighing in, how long it had been since you went to the bathroom, whether you are constipated at all, etc.

I like to weigh naked first thing in the morning so there is no variable of clothing weight to mess things up..

Also, you do need the healthy fats for gallblader health and so your body can properly use fat-soluble vitamins. Are you eating the same thing for L&G every day? Switching that up to higher fat meats or higher carb veggies some may help your body too. Eating the exact same thing every single day is sometimes counterproductive to weight loss..

I've had low loss weeks, no loss weeks and even weeks where I've gained. But have a peek at my ticker and see where sticking it out through those rough weeks has gotten me. Hang in there and stay on plan. Get in your healthy fats, vary your L&G, drink TONS of water and you will see better losses soon!.

The two week mark is something! I never had the stall then, but many people do. I have been stalled for one month at the same weight. I hope you've done measurements because I've lost lots of inches, even though my scale isn't moving. I know the feeling of being bummed but you'll get through it!.

I weigh in at a clinic and wear the exact same clothing every week when I weigh in. I also weigh at the same time as well. I'm not sure that does anything, but actually, your clothing can weigh up to a pound or more (believe me, I weighed them haha!) So, my counselor probably thinks I have no other clothing! They are starting to get too big now, so I will have to come up with something that weighs no more than .5 pounds!!.

Keep up the good work and don't get discouraged! I'm sure you will have a bigger number next weigh in!!!!! And, do try to get in your Heathly fats this week!.

Thanks so much for the posts of encouragement!.

Wish I could weight naked...hahaha I go to the clinic! So that doesn't work out so well!.

I don't have a gallbladder....but will try to get some kind of good fat in me. I do switch up my meals a lot. So it is not the same thing over and over again..

I will stay positive..it was just like a punch in the gut yesterday..

Thanks again!.

Hang in there! I've had a couple bumpy weeks too! I always weigh first thing in the morning, naked! Clothes do add weight! I'm not giving that little scale anything extra to use against me! Just go back and kick the scale, and stay on track! It will get better, I promise!.

Don't get discouraged! During the first week, you shed a lot of water weight as the excess glucose leaves your cells. Then as your body readjusts, you may regain some of your water and lose actual fat. You probably did much better than the scale is telling you!.

I am in the middle of a "no weight loss" week, it is definitely more challenging. I have had one other zero loss week and made up for it the following week, which is what I am looking forward to next weigh in. I am sure that will be that case for you too hang in there!.

Let's see if this helps:.

- Most people experience little to no loss somewhere in weeks 2-4. This is due to your body adjusting to the plan. It's normal.

- Drink all the recommended amount of plain water, more if you can. Water actually helps you with your losses a lot. Most MFers report faster losses when they drink more. With the high protein content of this plan, plain water is even more important for kidney health. So MF, drink water and be merry! .

- Remember weight loss is never linear. Every week will be a little different. Log every bite that passes your lips in your MyPlan. This way you can see from week to week what you ate and how it influenced your losses. For instance, I found I lost better when I ate mostly beef for a week. Someone else here found mostly fish did it for them.



- The use of healthy fats is dependent upon the type of lean you use. It is required even if you have no gall bladder with some leans just because you need them to absorb certain vitamins that are fat soluble only. Healthy fats should never be split. They must be taken at once to be effective.

- Make sure you have all the food lists printed out to keep when you put your lean and green together. I recommend printing each out twice, one to keep with the food shopping stuff so you know what to buy and and what not to. (go to the top of this page, click the success tool tab, then choose eat right).

- If you stay 100% on plan as it's written in the manual you will lose.

- Watch snacks and condiments. They can slow your losses. Sometimes it's better to split your lean and green instead of having a snack if you're extra hungry one day.

Hope this helps..
