This will happen. Do NOT let it deter you. Nobody can lose weight every single day. It just isn't possible. Well, unless you were on a desert island and literally couldn't find one single thing to eat.
Trust me -- I know where you're coming from. The "I'm not losing" thing has derailed me from every
diet attempt in the past eight years. "This isn't working. I'd better try something else." I have finally decided that I need to be logical and realize that no diet plan in the world will make me lose weight every day. (ETA: I'm not saying you're thinking of quitting SB -- far from it! You're doing very well. This is more about my experiences but I thought they might help someone...)
Particularly when you're past your first week, you may have lost all the water your body was holding onto (excess water, I mean -- obviously, the body naturally has a lot of water! :P ) and your weight loss will naturally slow down. For me, personally, after a week of any
diet plan I "stall" for a week. But that's not technically a stall at all. I mean one week? What was I hoping for? To keep losing a pound a day until all 50 were gone? I certainly wasn't undereating by 3500 calories a day so I'm not sure what I expected to happen. I guess what I really was hoping for was a "miracle story" like the people who say they lost 15 or 20 pounds in the first week of (insert_plan_name_here). But that's not typical. Not in my experience of either doing an eating plan, or watching others do theirs.
Hang in there. Keep eating SB. I have tried them all -- and am back to SB because it is the only eating style that felt healthy, right and natural/normal to me. The only one. I'm back to focusing on health and am in it for the long haul, hopefully forever. Sorry to get longwinded but I know exactly where you're coming from. Don't be even a "little" bummed about not losing for two days. Be thrilled because you're doing so well sticking to plan and because you've already lost 10 pounds! 10! That's amazing. Good on you.
Happy Canada Day!
