Not Losing Nearly Enough! (Day 14)

Rate this Entry
I am grateful to having lost an incredible amount of weight the first week. This week is an entirely different story. Because I do not weigh myself often, I cannot tell you how much I have lost exactly this second week but I believe it is around 2 pounds. I stalled for three days at 122.5 and did a fff day yesterday which might have helped, leaving me at 121.6 lbs. I am happy that fff day worked to break the stall but it's still so early in the game to be stalling in my opinion. It is disappointing to deal with the fact that I probably won't make my goal of 113 anytime soon. It seems so far away!

Anyone experience similar circumstances their second week? Is this how it will be for the next two weeks?!

    Lou - how tall are you? 113 is awfully little! will tell you - that it seems of the people in my group the average losses have been the same - but those who had stalls in P2 seem to be stabilizing better - just something we noticed. Most who had the stalls - finished the stall with a nice loss - I had a stall in week 2 - it ended up being because of TOM. Just wondering if you are trying to lose too much weight??

    I think you are right--113 may be too low. I am 5'4'' but have a body type of a pear..nothing on top but plenty on the bottom LOL. I was in the 112-114 range about a year ago and found that I was happy with the way my body looked but it was hard to maintain. I was also happy in the 115-117 range as well so I would be very pleased if I could make it to that. I think I will adjust my goal and see how far I can get. I believe my body is having trouble getting below this weight because this was my weight for a long period of time. Even at 121, I still have too much of a bottom. I wish I could trade that for some on top! Ha. Thank you for that, greatly appreciated. Made me second guess myself and my goal. I think 115-117 is a more realistic goal. Also, relieved to hear that I can still continue to lose a bit more and stabilize well in P3. I hope you are doing well!!

    Lou I think you probably look GREAT as you are! Just keep going and see what your end weight is......we would never be able to lose this much weight without hcg. Also don't forget it is about changing bad eating habits. If you succeed with that then u may lose more in phase3. Don't be sooooo hard on yourself. I see in your posts to others that you put others needs before yours, I was the same way. Take care of Lou for once and everything else will fall into place.

    You are right. I should be thinking about changing my eating habits rather than a darn number on a scale. I don't plan on looking at the scale again anytime soon. I just want to concentrate on how I great I feel now compared to how I felt before HCG. Thank you for the encouragement. It was much needed!

    I always lost around 2 pounds a week but got great results from fff days ( up to 2 pounds) so if I didnt do those..id be in a situation where id be thinking, " why am i doing this for 2 pounds, i can lose that on my own" but like you said, this helps mentally for me. I am a binge eater. I am structured to a t...nothing can break me for weeks..months, and then when I fall off.. i FALL off. So This helps me heal mentally sometimes. Keep it up, do whats right for you and know this sint about the number as much as how you feel. I got caught up in the number game and it threw my mental game off..i gained back a decent amount and now id give anything to be back where I was when I thought it wasnt "good enough"

    I am the same way. It's that all or nothing attitude that I need to fix. I did try the fff day and lost a pound but this morning have remained the same weight. Oh well. I am starting to get that thinking if this is worth it when losing so little. But I know that if I were to get off protocol right now, I wouldn't make it and return to my old habits. I am doing MUCH better to say the very least. Previously, had this happened to me, I would have said forget it and binged. I will try to continue strong.

    Hi Lou, I hope that you are doing better today. From what I understand (and I've never been there), but the closer you are to your goal, the slower the weight loss. You are doing great! I know this one lady is sooo close to her goal, had weeks of stalls and small losses but she finished the round she was on and was able to lose a few more lbs the first week of P3 and is currently stabilizing.. I think everyone's body is different, but just wanted you to know about her.. I'd drink more water and change up what I am eating to maybe trick my body a bit too

    Thank you. That's really reassuring. I will keep going strong!

    Just staying strong instead of letting your mind mess you up into a binge is a huge accomplishment. Fully understand that. Good for you.
