Hi all, just got back from WI with less-than-hoped-for results. Down 1.8 lbs. That brings me to a total of 13 lbs in three weeks. I know it's good that my weight is going in the right direction, but it just seems like everyone else I know is losing so much faster than me! I'm 100% OP, and I know that everyone is different. The weight HAS to come off, because there's just no possible way for it not to, right?

I just need a couple of cheer leaders right now. I figure I can count on you all...

That sounds really good. Try picking up 13 pounds of flour that would be heavy. I had my 3 week WI today down 1.2 total 10.8 I know we would like faster but try to stay positive. Great job so far! Raa Raa shaking my pom poms for you. Hee hee

Just think- you are 13 lbs lighter than you were three weeks ago!! That's an average of 4.3 lbs a week!! That's excellent!!!! We didn't put this weight on overnight...we got this!!! Keep reading through the posts, you'll see that many people thought that they weren't losing fast enough and now they almost at goal or past it!!! You are doing great!!! Keep on doing what you are, don't give up!!!

I'm only on day 6- so I don't have any tips for you, but I think you are doing excellent!!!

New here! Today is my day one. Feeling good...for now. I've done plans similar to this and I know the first four days are liable to suck, which is why I chose now to start, my husband is on a golf trip for a week ;-)

Only issue I had today was not realizing just how much 8OZ of protein is and four cups of veggies. I had a shake for breakfast, soup and salad for lunch and when I measured my veggies and protein I about croaked! Needless to say, my dinner was huge! I still need two more cups of veggies and it's unlikely up that will happen tonight. Tomorrow I will plan better.

Thank you so much...the headache has been coming and going so I am hoping day 4 will be much better for me. I find I have a hard time making sure I get my food in since I work 3 night shifts so I am constantly having to make sure I eat everything in my 24 hour period...night shift is rough with eating healthy so I am ready for a change!

Julz: Not sure if I'm reading incorrectly but P1 is 3 packets (2 non-restricted, 1 restricted) 4 cups of veggies, 8 oz of meat, 2 tsp of oil per day.

Veggies and meat are to be measured raw. It could be the way I was interpreting it but just checking to make sure that's what you're having per day.

Good luck, you can do it!

I am on day 4. Day 2 & 3 I had horrible headaches & dizzy but I woke up feeling better today. My only concern is that I hopped on the scale this morning and I am not down at all. I have been really pushing water because I thought that the headache may be due to dehydration. Have most people experienced a drop in the first few days or does it drop later in the week?

I too am on day 4, and no loss! Be patient! Just follow the plan. Many people have been successful on the diet. We will be too! Don't weigh yourself until ur next weigh in. The pounds will drop! Hang in there!
