im new to SW and to these boards. I'm seeking a bit of reassurance and motivation really, as I'm worried I'm not going to lose weight on this diet. Just a bit about me first, I have PCOS and I'm on antidepressant medication. I really need to lose weight to start fertility treatment again as I have gained 2 stone since my first round of treatment. Part of that is due to my medication but mainly emotional eating. I have lost 3.5 stone in the past but that was when I was on WW and on the pill so my hormones we're not as whacky then.
This is my very first week on SW, anyway I stupidly weighed myself this morning even though my group meeting is later this evening. My scales at home are 3 pounds lower than the ones at group and they show that I have stayed the same. I feel so down already and wondering whether I will ever lose weight. I have stuck to the EE plan 100% this week! wrote everything down etc. I also swim 50 lengths at least twice a week and being a teacher I have a job where I am not sitting down. I am feeling so disheartened at the moment as I know when I weigh in later I will either have stayed the same or lost half a pound! If this is how it will be it will take forever to get to where I need to be and as I am 38 my clock is ticking away. My next appointment is in November and I was hoping to have lost a stone by then but at this rate, I'm not sure!
sorry to introduce myself on a downer but is there anyone else who has started off like this then gone on to have more successful losses?
Thanks for reading xxxx
