    I think I'll aim for a do-able 2lbs this week. Don't want to be disappointed next week and can't really see me being lucky enough to get 3lbs three weeks in a row!

    So, who's in?

    GL Rose!

    I'm weighing in tomorrow and it's going to be a massacre so I want to hit back with a 7 this week. Should be doable with all that water weight to crush...

    That's the pessimist in me showing again. Had a look at myself in the mirror last night. Thought there was something wrong with me as i noticed lumps ...then realised they were my abs. Don't think we had ever met before. Lol

    I'm going to aim for 2lbs this week, I lost 3.4lbs last week but don't think I will be so lucky again. Fingers x'ed for Sunday.

    This week's challenge will also involve trying to get back to the gym cause I haven't been in a month :( and surprisingly I kind of miss it.

    Thanks!

    Well this week I lost 1.2lbs!

    I didn't make the 2lbs mark but its my TOTM and so I'm very happy with my lb because I normally gain around now. I feel like I'm holding water so hopefully I will have a whoosh next week!

    I also didn't make it to the gym, so I didn't meet that challenge either but next week's the week!

    Hope you've all had a good week :)

    I gained 3! Not even through breaking, but, I'm assuming, through not doing things right. Feel so stupid. If I'd done things right, that could have been a loss and I wouldn't have wasted a week! blaaaaaaa. Dust it off, carry on!

    LOL. I wish I could say the same! :D Among other things, I was only eating once a day, I drank virtually NO water but tonnes of coffee -with cream. I also had next to no activity because I'm doing a big essay which is consuming all my time and energy. I've been in ketosis but that clearly isn't enough to ensur a loss!

    I'm just going to have to get it together and make sure I do it properly. I'm not helping myself by being careless.

    Hmm, once a day and coffee ....I'll be honest that doesn't sound right - certainly doesn't make a 3lb gain in my book. Would you mind trying the weigh in again tomorrow?

    I think I might actually because I did weigh in after breakfast and a cuppa - but still 3lbs seems just crazy to me! I mean, I wouldn't have been surprised to stay the same, I've been very bloated (and loo-challenged.), but even at that 3lbs is too much. I think you're right, I'll weigh in again in the morning. Thank you! :)

    No worries

    Only reason I say that is because I check my weight at least 3 times a day and I factor in various things, like weight of food that I eat, whether I've visited the gents (to put it politely), and also to monitor whether certain food/ingredients might slow me down. One example would be where last monday morning I weighed in at 14st 5, but I hadn't eaten much the week before. That night I had a massive kebab, which was also breakfast tues morning. Tues night I had a massive curry ...so by weds morning I was 14st 8/9.

    So this morning I found I'm 14st 5 again (albeit stable rather than bordering 14st 6) hence 1/2 lb loss ...but I had eaten more last week - so it's taken into account. See where I'm getting at? I know you didn't have much last week but there's various factors, like as you said - you just had breakfast so you could have been on the lower end of a number this week and higher end of a number last week.

    I'm probably not making sense but you might be suprised tomorrow morning. Would be interested to hear

    No, I think I do know what you mean. :D I try to only weigh myself the once a week though, cus I'm too easily swayed by numbers.

    Roll on tomorrow morning - if the scales still say 3lbs or Lord above, more -I'm blaming you Dra! LOL
