Also, are the 0 carbs/0 sugars of other drink enhancers allowed?

It's pretty typical to have a no loss WI around week 3 or 4. Also, watch out for Aspatarme (sp?). And yes, some people can be more sensitive to the sweeteners than others. You may also be losing inches. IPers usually consider a stall to be (I think) 4 weeks with no change in weight AND measurements. I personally wouldn't worry about it too much, just stay OP and your body will make it happen.
