So far it has taken me 20 weeks but I am just 2lbs away from starting the chamber of secret challenge. But next week I am due to start TOM so if I don't gain then it might take a little bit longer but I was shock that I didn't gain or stay stuck this week because normally the week before TOM I gain or don't lose.
