On many diets your body reaches a temporary plateau. The more you weigh, the faster you burn calories. This is because in order to maintain your heavier body weight, your body requires more calories. So it makes sense that you lose more weight in the beginning. But you've only been on this diet for a month, so it's hard to tell. 3 kg is an awful lot (and unhealthy) to lose in one week so it's possible that a lot of the weight loss your first week was water loss. Don't be discouraged that it appears you didn't lose weight the last week. Bodies fluctuate in water balance and it even depends on where you are in your menstrual cycle (hormones affect weight loss too). Give it more time. Good luck and keep at it!
