PLEASE I need help!! :(
Sorry, if this is in the wrong place, but i wasn't sure best place for it.
I need some help/support/advice please.
I joined SW about a year ago. I followed EE to the letter and after 12 weeks of losing a pound, gaining a half, losing two, gaining 3, i decided to give up having lost only 1/2 pound overall!!
I re-joined after the new year, as i have now managed to put on another 2 stone! I was so motivated that i did not mind even losing 1lb a week (1lb a week = nearly 4 stone a year!) but things aren't going well!
I have over 4 stone to lose, so this is not a case of a tiny bit of weight going slow. On my first WI i lost 3lb. Now while this is good for me, this was the day after new year and i knew in my heart that after the christmas binge, this would come off naturally if i did nothing. I WI yesterday for the 2nd time and i have gained 1/2lb!!
I am soooooo fed up and did the typical thing of having a blow out day with tears and tamtrums and lots of chocolate.
I just don't know what to do! I have not broken a thing. I have even cooked all the receipes from the magazine for the past two weeks to ensure i wasn't going mad with portions.
I need to do something with my weight, but i have no idea what.
Staying for group really is not motivating me with stories of everyone elses big losses, and being asked the standard set of questions ' are you eating your HE? Are you eating enough? Drinking enough?' etc.
Sorry to have a real down beat moan, but i wondered if anyone else has experienced the same things? And by change knows a cure
Hi Daisy, So sorry that it doesn't seem to be working for you - I'm sure you will get lots of helpful advice here.
Do you keep a food diary? Maybe keep one on here for a week and people might be able to see where you are going wrong.
Are you getting enough superfree and superspeed foods?
Are you using your syns?
If you have a very carb heavy, or protein heavy diet, maybe try swapping around. I used to do green days all the time, as I preferred them, but I know that red days would have boosted my weight loss.
Failing that, have you seen your doctor? There may be a food intolerance, hormonal, birth control or medical issue that is affecting your weight...
Don't give up - it will work for you once you find what the problem is.
Good luck xxx
Graet advice from Spanx there.
I think a lot of people assume that not eating any syns will speed things up but it really doesn't, you should use at least 10 of your syns a day to keep you on track and stop binges happening, etc. I'm sorry to hear you've been struggling though was your previous attempt so up and down because if you gained half a pound you'd binge after?
This may sound obvious to you, but I only recently found out (used to be pretty scales-phobic so never weighed myself!) that it's common to gain a fair amount of water weight just before, during and after that time of the month, often it stays on for a few days after your period, so this could effectively screw up your WI's for a couple of weeks!
I didn't get motivation from group either, so WI once a week at home.
Might be really hard, but how about not touching the scales for a few weeks and seeing how you do overall? The scales could be psyching you out a bit, and depending on the time of day your weight could be fluctuating (sorry if this all sounds patronising, it's all pretty new to me )
Definitely put a food diary up for us to have a look at though!
My SW diary: Sophie's Slimming World and Cinema critiques! I love to chat about films, cats and foooood.
