View Full Version : Pounds lost too fast?

Hi. I am on day 3 of Phase 1 and so far so good. Ok, so I ate the crust off my daughter's sandwich yesterday, but one slip up isn't so bad.

I weighed myself Monday morning and the scale said 204lbs. Today, it said 199lbs. Am I down 5lbs already, or is something off? :dizzy:

Hi Steen,
Our bodies fluctuate with the amount of fluid we hold, etc. Don't stress about it - enjoy it - but don't be discouraged if tomorrow maybe the scale says 4 instead of 5 lbs. lost - or something along those lines! I try to weigh myself at the same time of day - once or twice a week (I know it's hard to not peek in between!) Too much scale watching can be really tough! Sounds as though you are doing great and sticking to the plan! The weight WILL come off if you stick to it! :) Go get 'em!:carrot:

Likely you're dropping some water weight right now. It's okay, enjoy!

Oh, and congrats on onederland!
