Showing a gain of 3lb. If it's not fluid retention and I see that number at WI on Thursday, I will be so upset. It's taken me 7 weeks to lose 7.5lb so gaining 3lb almost makes it not even worth while. It makes me think, why do I bother, working so hard and then going out at the weekend (which inevitably is going to happen at least once a month, I can't/don't want to become a hermit just because I want to lose weight) and then ending up back at square one.
Girls exact same here. Was far too fed up to post all week. Hoem scales has me at plus 3 after being only 4 from gold!!
I made a pig of meself, drank two nights and didn't track an ounce.
I do know that I need to go and get weighed in tomorrow and put it behind me and move on or I'll just climb the other way. Got back on it Tuesday and ran yesterday, walked today even tho it was hard.
If I'm up 3 tomorow I'll be annoyed though as like you lot that can take three weeks to lose.
Hopef it'll be 2 I can just about cope with that. Best of luck to you both. x

well done you! i've just had my little party for my friends... choc biscuit cake... yum (it's a huge inconvenience that my favorite hobby is cake decorating... gggrrr!!). i didn't bother tracking today- first day in weeks and weeks, but i'm going to have it attached to my hand permanently this week!!

you can do it, but i wouldn't advise skipping your weigh in.... i know in the past when i've done that, it's been the start of a slippery slope! good luck!

if the soup is "cream of...." avoid it! Cream is loaded... I almost died when i saw how many points were in a small serving of it... I would try drinking water with your dinner to pace yourself....

Im dreading my friends wedding for that very reason. I know when i get a few drinks in me i go on a "See Food Diet" See Food... EAT It....

fill up on the veggies with your main, not sure how ya are with potatoes, they aren't really my thing, so I would eat the meat/fish and just the side veggies. As for the drinking, do your best to moderate yourself, but remember, you have to enjoy yourself too... so just save your weeklies and make extra activity pp just to make sure you stay ok....

I hear ya!!! I have done WW about 4 or 5 times... at my biggest i was 14st 12lb that was when i was 19... Never tried SW but i tried Unislim, i couldn't get me head around it coz I still had the WW system in my head haha! You have to really want it. I saw pics of myself from a trip to scotland before christmas and i got so upset. I hadn't seen the weight going on.

I went the first week of Jan (starting weight this time was 12st 6.5lb and im 5ft3) and just kept going. I go to WI each week, don't always stay for the meeting, but I find this thread keeps me on the straight and narrow for the week. The motivation you get from here is brilliant. Everytime I was having a bad day/bad week (which I had last week) there was always someone either helping you through it or telling ya they feel the same. For me, the weekly WI is a must. It keeps me going. Knowing its hanging over me, that I have to get up on that scales in front of mary and either make her proud or let her and myself down.... Seems stupid but that mindframe works for me.

Stick around here for the best ideas on recipes, tips and motivation... thats the biggest advice i would give anyone. Its saved me from diving head first into the ben & jerrys countless times....

I had WI in last night. At the end of week 3 I'm now down a stone exactly. I've been working my ass off (literally!) and am delighted to see that my hard work is paying off
