    Feeling disheartened.

    I have only 6lb to go to reach my goal weight. Due to work circumstances my time between weigh in is longer than usual and so I couldn't resist just having a peek on my own scales. Now I know they aren't going to be the same as my CDC but I was sort of expecting it to show some
    downward movement. I did a little more exercise than I usually would over the weekend so maybe I'm retaining a little water for muscle repair but it's Wednesday now and still no movement since last week.

    The problem is when I see results it can stick to the diet. When I stick to it and see nothing I figure why not have the chocolate then?

    At leas t's not going upwards! Maintenance is healthy and common when you are close to goal. It'll come off eventually if you keep at it

    True Emma. Upwards is not something any of us want to see. And I'm glad I didn't have that. I've had my porridge and morning water so I will keep going. I've promised myself I won't look again until I see my CDC.

    hun you are doing amazing so dont you dare reach for the chocolate!

    You are so close to goal, and with a BMI at 24, its going to be slower....especially if you're doing more exercise. How are the inches this week?

    I "only" lost 1lb this week on SS, which made me quite angry....this diet is about big results, it could have thrown me off plan but instead, i've become even more determined! I know and you know this diet when done 100% cannot fail. Even if its about the inch loss rather than the scales.....

    Youre so close hun, dont let the scales upset you!
    Week 1 - 5: -22lbs and -15.5 inches
    week 6 - 10: -11lbs and -12 inches
    Week 11 - 15: -10.5lbs and -12.5 inches
    Week 16 - 20: -5lbs and -6.5 inches
    Week 21 - 25: +8lbs and +4.5 inches (Barbados)
    Week 26: +5lbs and -2 inches (last cwp weigh in 12st7lb)
    Week 27: -6lbs (12st1lbs)

    Total Loss: 41.5lbs and 44 inches

    Thanks Lizz. That's what I needed to hear. The inches have gone down on my hips chest and arms so that's good. I know it works and I will get there. Being so close it would be ridiculous to stop now. I have resolved to increase my water and keep going!

    Haha, true enough Lizz. I'm going to keep up the exercise if the lbs loss is slower then so be it. I'll be slimmer and more toned. I definitely one for needing to watch my water though. I think I need to up it to take into account the exercise.

    I manage 2.5 litres every day but there are some days I know I should have more due to exercising or generally being hot and sweaty at work but I find that extra water hard to fit in sometimes. I know I haven't had enough as I get a headache but by then it's too late!

    The problem is if I get called out to a scene (I'm a forensic fire investigator) there aren't any toilets usually. So I can't really go for it on the water front as much as I'd like to. I always make sure I do the minimum and more when I'm not on call. But these on call weeks are always harder for the water. Maybe I should get one of those 'ShePee' things!

    I should do that. I'll give it a try the rest of the week.

    I'm always afraid that the SheePee thing will slip and I'll have wet my pants! Someone did but me one once. It went in the bin after sitting in my scene kit for a few months and I still just kept holding on until I was at an actual toilet.
