I'm on Day 4 of the detox and am down 6 lbs.!!! Today is nothing but bananas (up to 8) and skim milk.. gonna be a rough one! But tomorrow I get to have chicken. I can't believe how much energy I have. I thought for sure I wouldn't be able to stand up after 3 days of nothing but fruits & veggies.

I am officially down 18.2 pounds since I started, 8.2 pounds since I started posting here last Monday. Yay! I hope the scale keeps moving that direction.

Newcomer here. I have been following the myfitness program too but I am not making progress like others are reporting. I started on June 23rd and have only lost 6 1/2 pounds. I thought for sure with all the exercise and watching my calories, carbs, etc, that I would have experienced a greater loss. I am a bit discouraged. I was 146 and my goal is 120. It was sure a lot easier putting these pounds on!

6.5 pounds is awesome for a month and a half! When you're already close to your goal, it may take a little longer to come off. Keep going, you can do it! Have you done weekly measurements? As long as those numbers are changing and how your clothes fit are what's most important. Also, if you're exercising, make sure you are getting enough calories as well! You sound like you're off to a great start! Also, exercising and building muscle I think can at least temporarily add weight.

I think thats great progress! That's about what I lost im just over month and I've got more weight to lose than you! The less you need to lose to hit your ideal weight, the slower it comes off!

Argh I think my scale is crazy! This morning when I first got on it, it said I had dropped 2 pounds from yesterday. I didn't think that was right so I got back on it, and it was up 5 pounds! That is a HUGE range! I recorded the higher number (which means a gain for me of 2.4 pounds, that is a lot!). But I'm not sure what is accurate?? It is a new scale, too.

This happends a lot. I usually get on the scale 3 or 4 times and usually your real weight will be 3 out of the 4 times. And we do fluctuate some...I weigh in the mornings because I haven't eaten anything yet and I think im at my lightest then...

Thank you both for your encouragement. I did not think I was making good progress because I hear so many who lose 2-3+ pounds a week. Some of my clothes are fitting better. I can also fit into a few pieces I could not wear last year. I will keep in mind that the less you need to lose the slower it comes off. Also, I do strengthening exercises so I am building muscle. I will check back and let you all know what my progress is.

Yes, it is worth it. The sooner you start, the sooner you will feel better and the sooner you will be healthier!

Good luck! I was so worried about not losing enough and then this morning I weighed in and lost another pound!
