Weigh in tomorrow evening and feeling somewhat confident!
Good luck to everyone for the coming week =)
I can never find those sausages None of the Supervalu's near me ever have them (but they always have the Gluten free ones which are not low in points)

Girls, I too slipped up a bit this week. I was good enough on the weekend (used all my weeklies but made good choices) but tonight I was too lazy to make dinner after I did the shopping so I had a demi baguette with sausages for dinner and a few drinks and 2 packets of crisps ooops... hope it didn't do too much damage, would be happy with STS this week but have a feeling i'll be up, even though I didn't go over by more than 15PP in total, so technically I shouldn't be up, but my body doesn't work like that If I go over by a few PP, I am instantly up

No, but I wouldn't waste 50euro on it!! You can get good ones (like Salter etc) for less than 20euro and just calculate the points yourself.

in the grand scheme of things you havent gained that much. Everyone falls off the wagon at some stage, the main thing is getting back on it... You obviously have a good mindframe about it, being a gold member took some serious work... For most people on here it's their second, third or in my case 4th time at WW.

I know what you mean about not facing it. I know a lot of leaders say "ah you should never be embarrassed about your weight" ... that's easy to say for someone who has lost weight, in the case of when you miss a few weeks or have a really really bad week, no matter what anyone says, you are embarrassed and full of dread. I know I used to be mortified when I knew I had put up,I felt like it was written all over my face that I had a bad week/gain. It was like everyone knew you were the one that had got WW soooooo wrong. So instead of facing it, I just avoided the meetings and WIs and ended up getting bigger and bigger and then was more embarrassed about my jeans not fitting and how I had given up.

I would definitely go back. Prepare yourself, and speak to your leader as you are getting weighed. Chalk it off and start afresh. You obviously know what you are doing. Good luck User.... that half stone will be gone before you know it!!!!

+1 on this completely. If only I had asked for help/advice last year when I was gaining!! It was one meeting after the next and a lot of ups and downs and then I didn't go for a good few weeks and before you know it I had gained 16lb of the weight I had lost. I am still trying to lose it. Also, I know I am going to be up this week and the thought of not going to my meeting flashed into my head, but I said no, if I don't go this week, I am subconciously giving myself the right to royally f**k it up this weekend (and I have a girls night planned this weekend). Definitely go to your meeting, forget about the gain, draw a line under and start again

I am having major snack attacks today I know I am already going to be up but I feel like I am sabotaging myself even further. The worse thing is there is a hamper at home from my Dad (he doesn't pay attention at all to the fact that I am in WW) filled with chocolate biscuits and chocolates and other goodies and I feel like when I go home, I am just going to dive right in because my OH is away so he's not there to tell me not to have them or to eat them himself

I put on 6lb in 2 weeks back in August (during my wedding and honeymoon). It is embarassing to yourself, but only to yourself. Your leader won't make you feel uncomfortable and no one else has to know your gain. Just draw a line under it!! Next week you could have 1/3 or a 1/2 of that gone if you are really good. Try and fill up on fruit and other filling and healthy foods (note to self, take own advice ha ha)

Just think, thats 2lb a week... if you work at it, 1 or 2lb per week you will be back on track in no time... like you say, when you don't look after it it will just get worse..

was down 1lb today.. you would think I would be happy wouldnt you but no cause i know I had lost more, was really good, pointed everything, had 30 weeklies left as i wasnt drinking at the weekend, had weighed in on my home scales (which match the wi ones) on Saturday was down to 11st 11lb which would be my two stone, decided to have a light day yesterday before my weigh in today... had cereal and yogurt loads of fruit, vegetable soup and a roll and for my last supper i said i would have fish and veg and bns wedges so no real carbs this was all so i would not be bloated this morning... guess what a light day does not work because you are hungry and when you are hungry you find things to pick at like that extra two slices of toast or the 3pancakes with nutella i had last night!!

So down 1lb but mad at myself because of my carb binge after dinner!

I'm sure if you took the carb binge out of your weeklies you would still be within your allowance. It just may not have showed this week. Stick with it and what you saw on your home scales should show for you in time!

Have my WI tonight and terrified as usual! I have been good this week too, 35 weeklies left but I havent done much excercise. 2.5lbs to my stone but just hoping for a pound tonight.
