NOT losing much after week one! HELP?
 
I haven't lost much since week one. Week one I lost 8.6, week two 1.8, week three 1.4 and then last week 1.0. I keep going down and don't know why. VERY frustrating since this plan it not cheap and I have been sticking to it 100%. I do NOT cheat at all. I drink all my water also. As far as ketosis, I was in the middle the first couple of weeks, now it is barely showing a color on the stick. I don't know what the low side means. Does it have anything to do with little weight loss? The clinic told me I should be losing 2-3 pounds a week and I haven't even hit 2 pounds yet after week one. They told me last week to increase my protein amount by 100 so I did. So far in 6 days not an ounce has came off after doing this. I don't know what else to do. I have brought up my frustration the last couple weeks to them and so far it is not helping. I was expecting a rapid weight loss with this program especially since it cost $1000 plus supplements. I feel that I can do another program for $30/month and lost 1-2 pounds per week. I really don't get it and would love to hear if anyone else has had this same issue before I give up. HELP!!!

Thank you for your reply. My goal is 40 pounds. Technically I am 60 overweight. So far the numbers show that it is fat. I don't know what to look at if I am retaining water. Yes I have a food scale and even grams. They have never told me how many carbs I should stay under only what to eat and not what to eat. They have only told me how much protein to eat. I don't eat any carbs at all, only what is in the lean meat and veggies we can eat. My protein they started me at was 500 and last week increased it to 600. They told me the reason they think I am not losing more weight is I wasn't eating enough protein. I have trouble believing this, but ok. I don't do a whole lot of exercise, only about 20 mins 3-4 times per week with weights or elliptical. I have been in ketosis so far, low end, very little pink color. the first week I was in the middle.

I also stopped getting the injections a couple of weeks ago and wondering if that could be why. I stopped them because I didn't see any difference in my energy. I will still tired all the time. This week I found out through another forum that the shots also take care of water retention and fat. If that is the case, then I will start them again.

My clinic doesn't offer the injections at all. I don't understand why some do and some don't. To be quite honest, I get far more information here than at the clinic. Since I am hypothyroid and a vegetarian, I knew I would be losing weight slower than the average person. My first week I was down 2 lbs, second week 2.2 lbs. but 5 pounds of fat so I'll take that. I'm hoping I can keep this momentum up.
