    Are you weighing yourself at the same time everyday? If not, try in the morning before you eat. Then your meals won't have an impact on your weight and you'll get a good read.

      I weigh myself first thing in the morning.

    I follow the Ignite recipes exactly. Nothing extra except veggies. I have lost over 8 pounds! I eat more protein than I ever have and thought I would gain, but instead I lost. Weird how the body works. I also weigh myself every morning a few minutes after using the restroom with no water or food, no clothing, not even my hair tie. I add Chia seeds to my shake every morning to stay full a little longer, and keep track of my calories on Dailyburn tracker. I haven't even started exercising and the weight is coming off!

      congrats! That is what I was hoping for, but not experiencing the same results. UGH!

    Hello! Don't give up!!! Have you seen your primary care physician lately? Could it be possible that your thyroid, hormone levels, etc. are out of sync? By the way, there have been several studies to show that the body can take several weeks to adjust to new food/exercise routines. Hang in there. Keep pressing forward!

    don't give up! it depends on what your goals are with ignite.. if you have a lot of weight to lose (like me) you'll see results right away (10 lbs in the 21 day detox). But if you only have 10lbs to lose, it won't come off right away. Like someone said, try measuring yourself. And I think you should ONLY weigh yourself once a week - keeps you sane and its a nice reward if you did lose. Do you feel better on ignite (more energy, less cravings etc)? Then it's worth it already! You can do it! :)

    I have been on the ignite program for 12 days now and I haven't lost a pound. I go up 1 and down 1 everyday. I want to eat healthy so sticking with the diet is not an issue and I have found it to be pretty easy overall to cut out the "evil 6" but I was expecting better results. I work out at least 4 days a week, most of the time more than that. And it isn't like I only have a few pounds to lose....I want to lose almost 20lbs. I am eating smaller portions and only having a couple of servings of fruit a day. HELP! Am I doing something wrong?

      Have you lost inches off your waist and hips? Sometimes that is a better indicator that you are doing something right.. Also, is your metabolism slowing because you are eating less? Are you getting enough sleep?

      I haven't measured myself since I started the program, I'm a little worried because if there are no changes I will really be discouraged. Maybe my metabolism is slowing, but I was hoping the exercise would combat that. I sleep pretty well, about 7 hours a night.

    on day 21 - I lost 5 pounds originally - which I thought wasn't horrible as my goal is 15-20. but this morning 3 came back on...really? I had one SOLID workout last week but didn't cheat once on the eating - it was just a busy week and difficult to get anything more than my daily stretch in. Trying VERY hard not to be discouraged. HOWEVER - I have felt more alert in the afternoons, etc. Not sure if that is the no gluten or dairy or I suspect maybe both.

      ok - next day scale was 4 pounds lighter - someone suggested not weighing everyday - and doing measurements....my pants do feel a little better. in "Balance" stage right now and going back to "Tracker" to see my overall calorie and carb intake...still wish these two DB apps were integrated!!!!
