    I have been doing sw for 9 weeks and have lost 9 lbs a steady loss of 1lb a week which for me is great, as weight loss has always been really slow... but as long as I see the scales go down, I seem to be able to stick to it quite easily and it just felt amazing.

    Then last week was * week and I had battled with my food cravings and managed to win and stick to it using my syns.

    But when i weighed this week, the scales tell me that I have gained 4 lbs :eek:, is that even possible in a week :confused: ... I have no idea how. It's got me really really down and the last couple of days I have reverted back to my old emotional eating pattern ... which I know isn't the solution, but it's all just driving me crazy!:cry:

    Sorry for the rant :sigh:

    Hop back on your plan before the slope gets too steep!

    Good advise from Vixxster. I have to really try hard at this diet lark (sorry plan) but im reaping the rewards now its taken ages to lose - think of the great feeling you get when the scales show a loss nothing better!

    Official, I weigh in on Mondays.

    Thanks Vixxter, I hope it is just water weight. I just kind off thought it would of come off by now. a 1 or 2 lb gain i could deal with, but 4 lb was just scarey lol xx

    Oh well, must think positive and hope weigh in on monday is better....

    I can easily gain anything from 1/2lb to 4lbs on * week sometimes. It drives me mad at the time but there is usually a pay off the following week! Chin up keep on going and see what next week comes from.

    the best time to weigh yourself is first thing in the morning (with a light meal and no period)

    Past all that (thank goodness!) but you can't eat enough calories to put on 4 lbs of fat in a week (unless you are extremely talented at the stuff my face stakes!) That's an extra 14,000 cals! So it has to be water, unless you can tell us different! :eek: So relax, stick to the plan and you'll be back to normal next week xx
