1st week of healthy eating and exercising....

And I've lost nothing.i have had a really good week. I'm doing the 16:8 diet, I eat between 11am - 7pm. No crap or junk, ham or chicken salad for lunch and dinner, snacks have been healthy. Tea with unsweetened almond milk no sugar, water, tummy leg and bum exercises, hooping and a 6 mile run.
Totally gutted to not even lose 1 pound. I'm not giving up ... but what am I doing wrong?
I'm mid 40s if that makes a difference

Have you been using mfp to track your food? It’s sounds like you’re off to a great start, give it time x

Give it a few weeks. The exercise might have led to your muscles retaining water so you have to wait for that to disappear. You might want to try measuring as well as weighing.

I was 14 and a half stone when I started so I thought I would have a really big loss in my first week as I had so much to lose overall. Instead I only lost a pound. I was so disappointed but now, 10 weeks later, I am 22 pounds down and am so pleased I didn’t give up at the beginning.
