    Hun...hugs....you are just getting over a stomach bug.
    You chose the most sensible things that you could do when you were unwell, so your body still went into "starvation" mode and kept hold of what you were eating as it wasnt sure when you were going to eat next. Its perfectly normal.
    Its only 0.5lb, and not a gain of a lot more, so never fear! As long as you are well enough now to get back on plan, you will loose the weight next week and more.

    confused! Ex SW, ex CC, now on FAST 5:2
    I know it's devastating but if I'm reading your stats right, you only put on half a pound, which is almost like a stay-the same, which after losing 13lbs in four weeks, is understandable. It's like you lose a bit, you consolidate, you lose a bit more, you consolidate. Chin up! You will lose next week.
    Oh, my consultant also says that with women, no matter what size, you almost have to look at their losses across a month, not just from week to week. I sts at least once a month. Good luck!! x

    It's disheartening isn't it? You didn't say how much you had gained so maybe you were holding water? I had a gain last week and I am determined to get back on track. Will be weighing in again on Thursday. You may find that next week you'll have a larger loss as your body catches up with itself.

    How did you eat from sat til weigh in? Someone told me that if you eat very little and the start eating more, your body starts holding onto it because it thinks it has been fasting. Not entirely sure if this is true but that could make sense in your case.

    Anyone feel free to correct me lol :confused:

    0.5 is reasily rectified and I am sure you can do it :)
    a few weeks back I had been really good all week and only lost 0.5lb but then the following week I lost 3lb. I don't really lose much more than that on a weekly basis anyway

    As the others say, when you are ill your body hangs on to stuff. I reckon you'll have a good loss next week. PLUS you had an amazing loss the week before. You're still doing fabulously x

    I wouldn't worry about a small gain of half a pound and to be fair you lost a massive 7lbs last week. Sometimes, for whatever reason, a large loss one week results in a small gain the following week. Look at it overall as the others have said, 13lbs in 5 weeks is fantastic.

    Stop and think logicaly hun, you haven't eaten properly so body goes into starvation mode and hangs on to everything, and you have probably retained fluid as well having a tummy bug. Its nothing to worry about, just what happens in these cases. Stay focused this week and you will see the rewards next week.

    Our consultant said a very sensible thing the other day - "your body doesn't know what you are going to do, or what you are thinking of doing, it only knows what you have just done".

    Your body has had a bit of a shock, because you have not been well, and because you haven't been feeding it. It doesn't know that you are about to start feeding it properly again, it just knows it has been starved and has no way of knowing how long this will be going on. So it hangs on to everything it can, just in case.

    Now you are feeling better, you can get back to the plan, your body will heave a sigh of relief, say "hey, I'm being fed again, so I can stop panicking".
