Not losing any weight

Hi. I have not lost any weight in over a week. I have been "dining in" until supper, when I am actually hungry. I am not pigging out at supper. I am having a small supper. I am drinking a 1/2 gallon of water. I know based on my weight I should be drinking another 1/2 gallon but I haven't been doing that. Any suggestions??


Great job with your water and paying attention to your hunger cues! As far as water, it is best to aim for 1/2 your body weight in ounces– if you weigh 200 pounds you should aim for 100 ounces of water. This can make a huge difference. It is also important to look at things like how much sleep you are getting, how much stress you currently have. If you aren’t getting enough sleep or have had a significant increase in your stress levels that can stall your weight loss. Have you been doing thought downloads/working models? Have you been able to keep up with the 90 day workbook? all of these tools can help shift the scale. Lastly, have you been making it to the calls? It can feel intimidating to speak up and ask for coaching, but we have all been in your shoes at one time and everyone will understand your frustration with this. Coaching will be able to help you recognize a thought or two you are having which is standing in your way of achieving your goals! There are many things we need to take a look at besides food and water intake which impact the rate at which we lose, try taking a look. You can also post in the FB group and ask for help there….no reason to be nervous this is totally normal. Nothing has gone wrong.
