The next 12 weeks look like this:
Goal line is set at 3.5 lbs/week
I've done SnS before - first time I made it to 10/11 weeks (had a 1 lb loss in the last week so decided to leave it there), and the second time I did just 5 weeks (and was losing much slower than last time - I think because I was cheating with the veg and milk allowance) and successfully transitioned to SW EE and went even lower.
Yes, I gained weight again afterwards. I've yo yo dieted all my adult life. I HAVE to believe that I will get my weight healthy this time though and stay there - any future yo-yoing will be relatively small amounts.
The last 4.5 year have looked like this (I vowed to track my weight every day, whether good news or bad, when I reached my ultimate highest weight ever of 15 st):
I clearly haven't controlled the yo-yo dieting but I am thankful that I have stopped reaching ever higher weights.
It is exciting to think that in 12 weeks I could be at a low point in this graph! It will also coincide with our new kitchen being completed - then plan is to move on to a LCD and get really good at cooking delicious healthy things!
