I joined my local NHS My Weight Matters group 4 weeks ago. 1st week lost 4lb, 2nd week lost 1.5lb, this week I only lost 1lb. Been tracking all foods, keeping an eye on portion sizes etc. I went out Friday night and had 1 & 1/2 bottles of wine. This is the first drink I've had since Christmas ! And one evening after a very emotionally draining day, I had a treat size bag of Cadburys buttons (a rarity) but when I met up with a consultant at the group , she made out that I'm not "serious" about the programme! I certainly am , and I don't go out drinking every weekend , this was the first time since Xmas! A small packet of chocolate - which I recorded, and had no other treats for two days after. Just feels like unless I give up alcohol permanently forever , and any treats forever, I can't expect to loose weight. I came away quite deflated. Even on slimming world, treats weren't "banned" but you had to make sacrifices to have them. Sorry for the rant ! Just made me wonder if I should continue. The other consultants have been great, and said treats are OK in moderation, but you have to adjust your calorie intake after to even it out. Anyone else having a deflated time ? X
