Just started this again. I tried before to loose weight, watched what I ate for a week straight, worked out everyday for a week and lost nothing at all. I felt great but the scale showed nothing! what a slap in the face. But I want to try again! Just venting! Hope it works better for me this time!
Hi welcome Chrissie Did you measure and log every bite you ate Some times exercise can make you appear to have not lost weight due to swelling of the muscles they contain some water . 1 week isn;t a good test you should try to eat less processed foods and more from fresh vegies and fruit frozen is good too if they donlt add anything to it.. join our daily food and exercise log and who knows you might have just eaten enough to maintain your current weight and believe it or not your body will fight to keep the weight You really have to trick it to get it to remove fats .. starving won't help ... so eat as healthy as you can in proper portions and see then what happens. Hugs Judy:)

You can't judge by the first week. This why the scale is an evil tool! Just focus on being healthy and feeling great. The scale will move in time. Losing weight is a slow process if you do it the way you're suppose to. It took me 2.5 years to lose 120lbs.
