Last Monday I weighed 13 stone 5.6 pounds, and today I weigh 13 stone 6.2 pounds, so I've gained 0.6 pound this week. I had been losing weight till Friday, as I weigh daily, but sadly, over the weekend I gained some . I really need to focus on getting my weekends in check. That is my goal for this week - to achieve a 2 pound loss on the scales next week, so that I can be back on track towards getting below 13 stone. I had some salty meals on the weekend, and I am hoping a lot of the gain is down to water retention. I regret the scone and clotted cream I sneaked in mid-week as well, but I don't regret it too much, as it was delicious!
Reminder of how this thread works: If you weigh in with us in this Fab 5'ers Monday group weigh-in thread, then one or more of the Fab 5'ers will respond to you at some point during the day. The Fab Five are:
If you're new, and fancy joining us you are very welcome! Just pop in and introduce yourself and share your starting weight (if you want to), plus any goals you are hoping to achieve on your weight loss journey.
Normally I am here all day, but I'll only be around till about 10am this morning, as I'm off on a trip away for a couple of days, to accompany a relative to a hospital follow-up appointment. So we're working with a reduced number of Fab 5'ers later in the day, so please bear with us! Someone will respond to you at some point today and/or this evening. Please join in, and we hope you'll also enjoy interacting with each other too - we encourage discussion and supportive posts within the thread.
