Your mind has already made itself up and is ready for change, give your body chance to catch up I promise it will. I have seen this a lot with my clients, its just a case of perseverance will pay off. Youve changed what your body is used to receiving, in a short space of time it will know exactly what to do with all the wonderful nutritious food its getting and you be slimmer with bags of energy. Keep going. If you need advice on exercise, Im here to help.

I really wouldn't worry about it. It can take a little time for our bodies to become accustomed to what we're feeding them. Just have some faith, remain strong and you'll be getting the results you want before you know it :)

Life is for living!

Don't let yourself down.

A very similar thing happened to me. Two pound loss the first week, and then a three pound gain the next, with no change in the amount I was eating and exercising to account for it.

I was thoroughly demoralised and sure I must be doing everything wrong, but in the absence of a Plan B I stuck with what I was doing.

Sure enough, the next week the three pounds was back off again, and other than another blip one week when I got a bit careless about logging food while I was away on holiday, it was a slow but steady loss of one or two pounds a week from there on. To this day I don't know what caused me to put on weight the second week.

So don't be too downhearted. Stick with it (which you sound like you've made up your mind to do anyway) and I'm sure you'll see the weight starting to come off.

Please don't beat yourself up about this - weight gain can be for loads of reasons - I find I gain up to 3 lbs if my bowels haven't gone! Upto 5lbs for periods - so it all goes with the territory - you gain some and you lose some. Plus it's a weird time of year - not warm enough to do things outside really, but cold enough to make you wrap up and want to keep warm.

It could be that your body is trying to work out all this drinking of water!! But whatever the reason, don't beat yourself up about it - that just demoralises you even more - just take it that that was last week -here comes next week -and remember - it's one small step at a time.

Chin up!

Sometimes it goes like that, just stick with it and I'm sure you will realise a loss next week.

Morning all.

Just had my first weigh-in. A week of eating gorgeous healthy things within my calorie range and walking every day has yielded nothing more than a 2lb weight gain. I am so disappointed. I've been here many times before and always have always lost a few pounds in the first week of a diet emoticon . ! How can this be?! I feel so demoralised

Sorry to start the day with a moan emoticon .
