I have been spending the last 6 months yo-yo dieting and I am sadly right back where I started. Today I am putting an end to it and my mind is 100% focussed on what I want to achieve.

I prefer Saturdays as my weigh in day however I dont want to wait until Saturday before i start Slimming World as it would just be another excuse to 'put it off' and consequently eat rubbish that i dont need. Enough is enough! :whip:

Feel free to comment and help me along my journey! I do prefer to save me syns for a few alcoholic beverages at the weekend ;)

Well after a week of sticking to the plan and spinning my backside I've put on 1 and 1/2 lbs. The only two things I can think it could be...

1, I started on Tuesday 17th and weighed in on Saturday 21st which was only 4 days however I lost 4lbs. This week was my first full week and I put on 1 & 1/2. Maybe it's because of the short week last week?

2. Maybe all the spinning has been a shock to the system and my body os holding on to some water? I wear a heart rate monitor when I go to the gym so I know I've been burning the calories

I've well and truly lost my mojo but I can't give in because I can't fit into the majority of my clothes in the wardrobe

Any help or advice would be greatly received....

Hi Becky. You're diary looks fine to me (I also do EE). Only possibility is the eating out was higher in syns than you thought?
You're certainly getting in a good mix of exercise. So the next obvious one is star week perhaps? I think you're doing fine, and if you carry on the way you are going, it WILL start to show.

Are you getting the third superfree in with each meal?

Slushy - She is using her HEb on the oat so simple.

Nope not a star week either!

You could be right about eating out however I opted out of the starter and the eaton mess dessert too so it's sooooo frustrating!

Oh yes I defo have a 3rd superfree for sure!!

Guess I just have to put it behind me and focus on my goal. Thanks for your replies x
