cutting back, still not losing?!

Question: Cutting back, still not losing?
About a month ago, I completely cut out diet sodas, except for when I eat out. I keep salads stocked in my fridge with raw veggies to go with it, and only sprinkle just a bit of dressing on them, and they don't have any cheese, croutons...etc. in them. I eat high-fiber content cereal in the mornings w/ 2% milk, and I cut out chips and late night snacking. If I "do" eat a snack before bed, it's fat-free popcorn, or fat free pudding. I drink mostly flavored water. I don't understand why when I weighed myself, I only lost 1 pound?! This is in a week...I feel like I've worked so hard that I should've lost at least 2-4 lbs my first week?? I need advice or tips from people who know more about it than me. Thanks!


Congrats on this past week.. 1 lb lost is better than none.. Stay positive and begin adding some cardio into your regimen.. You have to burn more calories than u take in.. I bet if you go for a 20-30 mins walk each afternoon you will be around 3-4 lb per wk loss.. Good luck and stay positive

hi there, I was having this diet problem for so many years. I used to buy all types of products. Until I stumpled upon this website, I was skeptical at first. there was a bit of improvement for the first week, but I was feeling good about myself. After losing that initial weight, which was such a confident booster, I started eating right to keep off the weight completely. I feel great!. Here's the life changing website:

you probably dont even need to loose weight, thats why your body is refusing because u dont even need it.

its because your body is adapting-its a very slow process and a pound is actually pretty amazing. i suggest taking a hour walk everyday-if not that, then a few small exercises at home. eat special k for breakfast? dont eat almonds they make you gain weight-so does banana and milk. have rice milk instead-with the added calcium so you dont loose calcium intake. i also suggest for your snacking that you DO snack but eat rye snaps or 'ryevita'-its really good. use low fat butter on it-or non dairy butter-tastes the same! good luck xx

need help on my ipod, can you answer my question? if you go on the consumer category and on music players you'll see my name in the first list of questions on a question about a cracked ipod screen-please answer? thanks!!


...well, are you even exercising? You need to be burning more than what you put in...
