Hi All! I started MRC a little over three weeks ago. Here has been my progress so far. Pre-conditioning 1 week lost 4.5 lbs. Week one on beige menu lost 1 lb. Week two lost 4lbs. Now on my first weigh in on week three I had no loss. Has anyone else had these ups and downs and not steady weight loss? I have been following the plan 100% but am frustrated when I don't see the scale move.

I have had the same thing. The big loss at the beginning was probably due to water weight. Look at your journal from the third week and see what you might have done differently. Look at foods that could have hidden salt. I store water so I have to watch the salt big time. It is why I can't buy the non mrc hns drinks...too much sodium and potassium for me. It make take you some time to figure out which foods to what to you. But really look over what you ate differently. I'm sure the answer lies there.

Also, the scale might not move on any given week but I bet you are losing inches still. That is normal also.

Thanks Fluffy in Flordia. I ended up just losing a half pound this week and my center told me I was likely in a plateau. I was able to buy new jeans a size smaller so I am not to discouraged.

I am new too! Hope we can finally get this weight off and start thinking about something else for a change. LOL Hang in there.
