Hello Trailblazer! How are things going for you?
I had a really slow start with this program - I started by gaining .5 lb and then dropped 1 lb on the 5th day, went back up, dropped 3 lbs after a week, gained it back, and just see-sawed along in a very frustrating manner for weeks thereafter. However, I have had a slow downward trend, overall.
Two months in I am now 7.5 lbs down, and I haven't even been tracking since late May, just following the basic guidelines, especially avoiding sugar (aside from a little dark chocolate.)
Also, as others have said, the most important way to measure progress on this diet is your tape-measure, rather than your scale. I should also mention that when I am tracking, I just count carb grams, rather than carb portions, so maybe I eat more carbs than some - but try to stay below 120 carb grams/day. So my advice is to keep going - it's a very livable program, once you get through the first few days of sugar withdrawal.
Good luck!
