    Awww Hugs :hug99: Frustrating isn't it.

    Remember though that you are talking about weight loss here and not fat loss. I assume you want to lose fat and weight and fat loss don't always run in close enough parallel.

    when you've been poorly, the body often retains a little more water, but you've still lost the same amount of fat.

    What's your goal? To lose fat on a plan that you can do, or weight at whatever the cost. Fat loss is pretty much the same for both plans.

    KD, my goal was just to get to 10stone by 17th Dec. I knew I would not reach my overall goal til after the New Year but that was ok. This last week, I even went back to the soups rather than the bars (which I love) to see if it would shift weight a bit quicker. But looking at my recent losses, I'd have lost the same amount doing a diet like slimming world and I wouldnt be hungry on that! But I would never have achieved a huge weight loss that way (been there and tried that :D).
    Its just me and my hang ups, KD. Size 12 I might be, but all I still see is a fat person.:(

    Okay, firstly you wouldn't have lost the same amount of fat on another diet. Not unless you were seriously undereating. It's all calories in vs calories out.

    Secondly, you can't control your weight, so it's pretty pointless having weight as a 'time' goal. You can control your fat loss to a certain extent, and you can control what you eat (or not eat), but weight will be a law unto itself.

    It sounds like you have been doing brilliantly. 100% :clap:

    Don't be frustrated. Be proud. You can't do better than 100% that's amazing stuff :clap:

    Thanks KD. I dont look at weight and fat in the same way. In fact, I dont look at fat at all when I look at losing weight. Its all about weight loss with me. Seems I need to get my head around it.
    I have never done before and after photos, cos usually I'm behind the camera and not in front of. I will try for my Christmas party, then maybe I can convince myself its not so bad...lol.

    ROFLMAO - thats me! :D

    Actually, I've simply never been taught about fat loss, seriously. Even when I used to do Slimming World. It was all about weight loss. I need re-educating!

    Hi Sharon,
    I stayed the same a couple of times, and also had some weeks where I felt i didnt loose much and could have done that on a 'food eating' diet...
    BUT...
    I always knew that I had followed the plan, whichever one I was on, to the letter, and its up to my body how it re-adjusts itself to that. I guess I just learned to accept it, and knew I couldnt have done any more. After all, a 2lb consistent loss is still very good, especially the closer you get to your goal weight.
    Stay focussed and the results will show!
