    79.1kg this morning (.8kg loss from 2 weeks ago). Been busy the last couple of weeks as we go into week 4 of CoVid lock down. Continuing with the PE Ratio Diet and really happy with it

    Up a pound again this week - I know I had a couple of weeks where I lost a lot (nearly a stone) following a bug etc, but I do not appreciate this slow burn rise again. I have not been bad at all, so it is frustrating. None-the-less, I will be keeping on regardless.

    Have you been low carbing and now not losing? As I found a lapsed carb as long as I returned to low carb eating it restarted me losing again.
    Myself I hv to low carb and low calorie to lose or maintain.
    I hope your loses start again for you. Good luck!

    I am still low-carbing, and also trying to keep calories a bit lower recently. It's just slowed down a bit. I am sure it will be fine. I have faith in what I am doing, it's just a frustration.

    Am not sure if this loss is from illness or dietary changes.

    24st 6lb, never has a fat man been so happy to lose 4lb !

    Only started on Monday doing intermittent fasting, a bit of walking and a few less carbs, not sure which is working but I’ve been trying for months to lose weight and this is the first I’ve lost more than a pound. Onwards and downwards !!

    74.7kg today, so a small bit of a drop which is fine. Really is so much easier to put weight back on than get it off again

    2 pound gain this week boooo! But I have started period today so fingers crossed just water retention.

    If not, my plan b is high intensity resistance training. Bit scary so I’m keeping it for when I start to plateau! Hope it’s not a plateau caus I have another 2 stone to go...
