I'm still struggling to get back onto the wagon fully and I keep jumping on the scales which is not helping. I'm going to put them away until March, I need a break from them. Gonna to get some extra steps into my daily walks to work too. I'm stuck in a nasty rut/cycle and I need some things to change while I get my head straight. Feeling positive about this.

I'm giving up the scales for the rest of the month
Hi Hidden , just wanted to say, you aren’t on your own. I am struggling too. I weigh pretty much the same as I did 11wks ago. All that angst and effort to just go nowhere. On the bright side, I am an optimist deep down, I haven’t had a chocolate binge for 13 days. I am definitely missing the gym, I struggle to motivate myself to exercise anywhere else, but I have been doing some yoga. Hope you find your ‘mo-jo’ soon😊
on the up side I think maintaining and being where you were 11 weeks ago is a really fantastic achievement in itself, and not to be underestimated. I can't tell you how many times in my life I lost two stone then put half of it back on in 12 weeks!!! I take maintaining as a win! I put on half a stone over Christmas and new year and it took me a few weeks to get back to better habits, but doing better now.
Have you joined Lytham s spring challenge?
There are so many ways of noting your progress and scales is only one of them. Clothes feeling a little looser, having more energy, being more mobile, sleeping better, feeling generally more comfortable with yourself. Choose your own way of measuring progress
You are so right . I got up this morning . It was freezing but still motivated to straighten my hair and get a decent breakfast . I am working till mid afternoon so as soon as I get in I won't sit down . On goes You Tube Zumba with a large tumbler of water . I can then prepare tea knowing because of the exercise and water I won't be eating the odd thing whilst I'm in the kitchen . Last month I felt sluggish after all Xmas food .
I bet the Zumba energises you and anything that does that helps you stay positive, I find
It does. I couldn't exercise in silence . I find myself smiling at the You Tube instructor . Await that van to cart me away !!!
Fully understand how you feel. It can be so easy to let the scales dictate my mood, and for that reason I try not to weigh myself too often. It's also the reason I haven't joined any weigh in group as I don't want to step on the scales every week, I prefer to leave it at least 2 weeks, or even 3 or 4 at times, between weighing sessions. Sometimes it's important to focus on how one feels, rather than obsess about numbers.
Oh bless you iamwhatiam. Just stick with it and us! I totally understand it’s so hard. What I found was i need only to use my scales on a Wednesday morning before our group, I’m up and down at different times in the week, so if I looked at those results I’d get even more fed up! As Bridgegirl said measure too. Have a good week, see you in WW 😊
Well done for getting as far as you have. I know what you mean about the scales, yesterday I had put on a pound today I am STS not going to get on them again for a week. if you can't face getting on them once a week please still stay on this site. We need you !!
I am the same .It is really cold here . Had a tin of soup - loaded with too much salt but lazy food with 2 slices of bread with butter and it was heavenly . I have done an hours Zumba via You Tube and this was my lunch / breakfast as didn't start till 11am - so comfortable reading in bed . I still fit in my clothes despite knowing I have 4 Xmas lbs to still shed .
