I used to weigh myself on a Monday evening at slimming world. This would mean going all day without eating much or drinking very much, and then not eating dinner before being weighed, in fear that anything I consumed would be weighed and used against me in the back of my book. This meant I was literally faint by 9:15pm when I got back – then too late to eat. So I would have whatever I could grab. Very bad habits to be in!
So I stopped attending the SW meetings, but still follow the plan. And I weigh myself on a Friday morning instead. This has been working better for me for the last two months and I have been somewhat steadily losing on a weekly basis.
But not today! Today, I gained a pound. ARGHHHH. I’m so frustrated. How hard is it to lose 1lb when I have so much to lose? I’ve been so good this week. Weighing my food, controlling my portion sizes and eating slowly etc. I’ve done lots of exercise this week and been very good on the whole. I feel like my body is being stubborn and no matter what I do sometimes, I just have a gain.
I’m going to go back to writing down every single thing I eat – and if I don’t lose next week at least I’ll have evidence that I was on plan!
I’ve agreed with myself that if weight loss doesn’t improve in the next two/three weeks then I will switch over to trying the NHS 12 week plan instead
