      Jill, maybe give it 1 more week? Perhaps you are retaining water or you are on the verge of losing? Try to maybe stick it out for 1 more week to see what happens?

      I admit the core phase hasn't been as fast or rewarding as the priming phase (this week I only lost .4 pounds). I have given the core phase 3 weeks and so next week I'm definitely switching it up to low carb, low carb, low carb, low gi, low gi, high gi (removing one high GI day and replacing it with a low carb day)...

      How's the cheat day going? So far I've gone out for breakfast and had most of a cheese omelette, some home fries and 1/2 a bagel with cream cheese. Fat city!!! :)

      Enjoy the rest of your day :)

      Have you met Alice?

        I'd give it another week too Jill. And don't forget ladies, a healthy weight loss is losing between a half pound and 2 pounds a week. Those .2s and .4s really do add up. My former WW leader called those mortar. They help hold the bricks together to make a strong wall.

        I had to basically have a cheat day yesterday, even though I'm in the middle of the Priming Phase. It was my niece's first birthday party and my SIL decided to have a chowder competition. (We came in second.) I decided to just enjoy the day and the chowders and get back on track today. We'll see how weigh-in goes on Tuesday.

          Jill - sorry to hear about the gain, you might be like me and your body just doesn't process carbs very well. I noticed for myself, that whenever I do anything BUT low carb days, I gain. It sucks but you might be in the same boat as me.

          I managed to lose .6 lbs this week, woot! I'm now down 10 lbs officially since starting this diet!!

            great job Kathy - update your ticker girl!!!!!

            I SO struggled this weekend. It was a cheat weekend for me - yikes!!!!! We got a new home and we were working there all weekend so the eating wasn't the greatest. I mean we did pizza friday night, which wasn't horrible and sat was my cheat day, so whatever. Yesterday, I still kinda cheated so I feel bad! I'm scared to get sucked back into the bad eating habits. I didn't weigh myself this week as I wasn't home so I don't even know if I lost anything. Back on track today - thank god. The bad eating from this weekend upset my gut, it didn't like me too much!

            I hope that everyone else is doing well. I don't want to give this up, it's just a rough time right now!

              Oh I forgot to mention that on a positive side - maybe I lost weight because we worked like maniacs in the house removing wallpaper, flooring, cleaning, etc. (yes, i'm trying to think positive! lol)

                Thanks Lisa, I updated my ticker per your request!

                No worries about your weekend, I think it happens to all of us. I cheated yesterday too lol, guess I'll see what happens on Saturday though I'm not sure how I'm going to weigh in since I'll be out of town.
