    Scales robbed my motivation :-(

    2.5lb for eating nothing all week?!! I can live with 3lb at a push (in the hope that I'll lose more next time). But at my weight I do expect about 4lb.


    Suddenly my goal of being 15st by May 10th looks completely impossible. Think I'm going to struggle now, as I'm off work and do not have the positivity that has been driving me before today.

    Seeing that on the scales couldn't have been more painful if the things had jumped off the bathroom floor and smacked me in the face!


    Motivation zapped
    x




    11/02/14 - 18st 8lb
    14/02/14 - 18st 2.5lb (not 100% so not in ketosis yet) = 5.5 lb
    21/02/14 - 17st11lb (hoped for more due to ketosis) = 5.5 lb
    28/02/14 - 17st 5.5lb = 5.5 lb
    07/03/14 - 17st 1.5lb = 4.0 lb
    14/03/14 - 16st 13lb = 2.5 lb (Perhaps didn't drink enough??)
    21/03/14 - 16st 8.5lb = 4.5 lb
    28/03/14 - 16st 5.0 lb = 3.5 lb
    04/04/14 - 16st 2.5 lb = 2.5 lb

    total so far = 2st 5.5 lb

    Goal 1 = Get into ketosis! (Done 21/2)
    Goal 2 = Get into 16's (stones, sadly not clothes) (Done 14/3)
    Goal 3 = Monthly challenge: 14lb in 4 weeks from 14/3....
    Goal 4 = 15 stone by 10th May (holiday and friend's wedding)

    Hello, thanks for your support!

    Yes I used same scales.
    Water, Im not sure? I drink a lot (because I seem to get dehydrated quickly); but perhaps I need to measure it just in case I'm overestimating what I have. I'll try that xx

    Exactly the reason I put the scales away

    I weigh monthly now, and that has been so liberating!

    Please don't get despondent, the weight will come off - just not in the lovely linear way we would like

    Well done on your loss!

    It seems that lots of people who have a small loss one week usually make it up in the next which is good.
