damage

I've done a lot of damage today, I cheated like hell, I don't know what came over, as if some kind of demon woke up inside me :mad:

On the brighter side, I clocked the recommended steps on weight watcher's pedometer plus 3 activity points. I don't want to face my weigh in session on Saturday. Talk about personal psychology:(

Thank you Gemma for the encouragment. I know I must keep going despite yesterday's let down. This morning I walked to my local bank and back which clocked up lots of steps. Let's see how it goes tomorrow. Take care :D

review

Last night I decided to review what I eat, how often and whether there is any variety in what I eat.
I came to the conclusion that I should weigh everything instead of eye balling. Some of the food I have been eating exceeds what I should really be allowing myself portion wise. For example, estimated 30 g of All Bran worked out to be 67g when using the scales. That's double the portion:sigh:

I don't think this diet is working either, I've tried my best to stick with the given points on daily basis coupled with walking. I would have thought I would start feeling lighter but to my dismay I look ever so big.

I really don't want to revert to Lipotrim as I don't want to lose anymore hair. Lipotrim was great whilst it lasted, the weight loss at each weigh in session was almost guaranteed if you stuck to it. Although I am trying ever so hard, I don't understand where I am going wrong.
I track what I eat on myfitness pal daily so I know I am on the right tracks but where is the weight loss despite all this effort??
There I've had a good moan:cry:
Tomorrow is going to be Lipotrim shakes, got to do something before the weigh in on Saturday:D

No weight loss yesterday, I just maintained. Despite trying to so hard I am not losing weight, the only diet that ever worked on me was Lipotrim. I am not too keen to go back on it as it affects my hair.
I had a word with Weight Watcher's Consultant and showed her my food tracker.
She was of the veiw that I don't eat enough, although I tend to utilise my pro points each day. I am not eating enough at meal times. She was bit critical of the Smoothie I tend to thrive on. Well, I don't buy that because I log everything in myfitnesspal and write an outline of my menu in this journal.
I believe when input = output there is no loss, when input is greater than output there is a weight gain; however when input is less than output there is a weight loss. Taking the above theory forward, I have come to the conclusion that I should lose weight each week as my input is less than my output. My Ormon's pedometer clocks in about 17g (fat burnt) on daily basis, however the burnt fat is not demonstrated on the weighing scales.
I've decided that I will continue with Weight Watcher's classes for the next few weeks, if no improvement results in weight loss, then I will cease attending.
Thereafter, I will monitor my own weight using weight watcher's philosophy, I am not paying 5.99 each week just to be told I have gained or maintained.:D Enough of this moan for a Sunday morning:wave_cry:
One thing I noticed that they really try very hard to sell WW's products, I have already spent over 80 pounds ( pedometer, calculator and a weighing scale) with no weight loss!!!

Decided

I haven't updated my journal for the past few days, I have been rather busy.
In order to shift some weight I have been taking 2 Lipotrim shakes and 1 meal since Wednesday as Pro Points are not working for me.
I have decided to quit my Saturday's class, I'm not happy paying 5.99 just to be told I have gained weight despite trying so hard.
This coming Saturday will be my last weigh in session with WW thereafter I will simply weigh myself at my local Boots for 50p.
No doubt that Pro Points work for some people but failed to work for me.
Whilst spring cleaning ( I know bit early ) I found my old weight watchers booklets going back to 1985. I intend to use ideas from these booklets to move forward. I am clocking more than 10k steps daily, I believe that should help.
All this dieting lark has really messed up my metabolic rate:mad: Enough of that moan now let's be practical.
