I am on my third week of Induction and I am feeling great but my weight loss has stopped after 13 pounds... its been almost a week... no change in my weight. Everyone tells me I ' ve lost weight but I am getting worried. To be absolutely honest, I haven ' t even cheated ONCE!!
I ' ve been measuring everything and eating all the right foods and drinking about 4 liters of water everyday. I have been working out at the gym for 6 days a week for 2 hours everytime. I do a half hour of weights 3 times a week and cardio for 6 days a week.
I ' ve been feeling great and sleeping a lot better now and more energetic, but I am really worried... WHY isn ' t the scale budging??? [ / icon_sad. gif]

Kirsty, you ' re doing great! Don ' t let the scale make you feel bad!
Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you ' re getting more fit, and it sure sounds that way, then you ' ll weigh more, but take up less space.
If you haven ' t done it yet, be sure to take your measurements and remuneration attention to the way your clothes fit. The scale can be mistaken.
Sometimes, too, if you haven ' t lost weight for a few days, despite keeping to the plan and exercising, it might be that your body is hanging on to some water in place of the fat you ' ve burned. If that ' s happening, don ' t be concerned, there will be a morning that you wake up and pee a lot more than usual. Then you ' ll weigh yourself and be down a pound or two from the previous day. It ' s happened to me several times now. Some people call that a visit by the " whoosh fairy ".
And, hey, I think that your exercise habits are wonderful!

Exactly what the others said. Keep strong. Don ' t do what I did when I had a stall and fall off the food wagon. The weight WILL start to come off again.

Hang in there, just like what all the others are saying!
My son lost 100 lbs on Atkins. He sometimes would stall for a month. But he stuck to it, and suddenly, WHOOSH, he would see a major sudden weight loss. It took him a year to lose the 100 lbs, so it evened out to about 2 lbs lost per week. But it really didn ' t happen that way on the scales. It was a month at one place, and then surprise! 5 lbs a week for a while.
Hang in there. Mr Whooshie is lurking just around the corner. The longer he hides from you, and you stick with it, the bigger the BOO.

Or maybe they ' re gonna be a couple now? Do you guys think we could have them start a family so there is one for each of us? Maybe then we wouldn ' t have to wait for their visits for so long, eh? [ / icon_wink. gif] [ / icon_lol. gif] [ / icon_biggrin. gif]
