I satrted four days ago and my weight hasn't done ANYTHING. I've maintained it, not lost it... I know some things I'm going to change to see if that will help, but does anyone have any little tips to help tip the scale towards losing?
You'll need to give a bit more information than that. What are you eating? Is it TOM? Not everyone will see a huge drop all of a sudden, but sometimes when you are doing everything right and don't notice a change, I've noticed that I will all of a sudden go from 0.4 lb loss to a 3 lb loss the next week. Give yourself some time.
If you still have nothing after 2-3 weeks you may want to re-evaluate but first week may not have much of a change. Unless you just like confirmation on your methods, in that case you'd have to detail them (cal intake/deficits) and your stats (age/height/weight/activity level), then we can have an idea and let you know if you are on track or if you can improve or take it easier :)
Well, the only reason I even am wondering is because my weight's always been very volitile, that's all. I'm eating (not on purpose) below my calorie limit.
I'll keep watching.. and waiting lol. Thank you.
My weight was very erratic initially and usual culprits are sodium, TOM and just over all water retention, usually solved by patients (which I lack) and drinking enough water (which I am not the best at :P).
Be patient! 4 days isn't really a very long time! Sensible weight loss is around 1lb a week, so you may see the scale move in no time.
