If your group is in the evening do you have dinner beforehand?

I have my first WI on Monday evening. The group starts at 7:30pm. When I've gone to other slimming clubs I've been obsessed about what I ate during the day before WI to the point of not wanting to eat/drink.

I am really trying to see this plan as a way of life and not get obsessed about it as I have with other diets. The not counting/weighing every morsel is definitely helping so far!

So, I'm thinking about just having a normal day on Monday and eating dinner as I nrmally do with my family at 6pm. Does anyone else do this who can reassure me I'll still see a loss? :confused:

When I used to go to class I was the same, I was paranoid all day & I had class at 7.30 then changed to 5.30 & didn't eat dinner. I agree with what you say, SW can fit I to our lives so we should skip meals worrif it'll affect our weigh in.

I'd suggest having a normal day & dinner with your family, that way every week your weigh in will balance as you know you've eaten normally every week.

I don't have time to eat dinner before I go to WI as I go straight from work. I eat normally in terms of breakfast and lunch on the day though and eat dinner when I get back home after class. :)

My class is at 6:15pm so I eat dinner after but I have baby club which involves going out for lunch on weigh in day & I always have a decent lunch. Figured the loss will be the same as long as I continue the same way. X

I agree with everyone else, as long as you do the same thing every week, your WI will be consistent. I don't have dinner as my group is at 5.30pm, and after that I go for a walk with my friend, so it's closer to 9pm when I get dinner. I do be starving lol

My class is at 7pm and I eat my evening meal afterwards, (I don't normally eat until late anyway). I still have a normal breakfast and lunch though.

Best advice - eat when you want to.

When you stop going to classes, you wont be skipping meals blah blah blah so start as you mean to go on.

I have a class at 6pm and have to go straight from work - i eat brekkie, lunch and snacks - and drink all day long. I always have - and wont break this cycle as otherwise its going to give false readings one week if i skipped lunch and get me in a vicious cycle of starving each week to keep the losses up.

Good luck! x

I must admit I try and eat less on weigh in days but know I shouldn't. I don't have my dinner as I don't have time but generally just try and eat salad and fruit on weigh in day. I'm glad I've read this post as its made me realise I don't need to deprive myself xx

I just feel that the more relaxed I can stay the longer I'll be able to sustain it. I've been on diets before when I've felt guilty about eating a piece of pasta to test of it's cooked since it wasn't part of measured quantity. Bonkers!

I weigh in eves at 7.30, had light dinner of soup the first week before I went, I now have soup for dinner every WI day as I feel this will be a true reflection.
If I skipped the meal and lost, I'd feel like I maybe cheated or if I ate a bigger meal before WI and then put on, I'd blame it on that.
Whether you eat before or after - do the same each week.

Well I did have my meal beforehand albeit a slightly smaller portion than normal. Worked out OK as I lost 6.5lbs! Glad I did for this week so I will do the same without worrying from now on.

As everyone has said, just make sure its the same every week. I don't eat a lot on weigh in day, but i dont really eat a lot during the day anyway. I don't have my dinner before I go, I just nip to the chippy afterwards lol :p
