Week 6

Hi everyone!

So, I haven't gone down this week.

I'm very very confused.

I worked out 4 times last week at pretty high intensity and kept to 1,400 calories.

This has to be one of the best weeks of dieting and exercise I've had in a very long time. But no loss. It's way too early for this be a plateau.

I'm not super discouraged but I'm just expecting to see my weightloss pay off on the scale. Monday's are cheat days so I enjoyed myself and didn't work out. But I'll be back on my workout schedule today till Sunday.

Wishing everyone a great week! X

Don't get discouraged - I've come to the conclusion that weight loss follows no rules or reason sometimes. Times when I think I've done really well, nothing has changed, and other times I reckon I've blown it, and weight has come off !!

You had a good loss last week, so it'll even out over time - just keep going and next week you should see a good loss. Might be just water retention or anything - have you tried checking your measurement - sometimes they show a change, even if the weight hasn't dropped :-)


Thank you! Checked my measurements and I've lost an inch around my waist.

I'll keep going!

Hi Maryfunke, don't be too surprised if this happens once in a while, as you are sticking to an exercise regime, you will be exchanging fat for muscle and as we know, muscle weighs more than fat. For this reason, it's a good idea to take note of other measurements such as waist, hip, bust, thighs etc.

I find the tape measure of more use than the weighing scales to be honest. I suppose that's why my goal is not so much to lose weight but to get in shape, and losing weight is more of a bye product of the healthy lifestyle regime. :)

Have a great week. :)


Lost an inch off my waist.

You are right!

I'll keep that in mind from now on.

It happens some weeks, but the scales will make up for it later - don't let it derail you and keep on with what you are doing.
