Week 4 weigh in and the week ahead - I'm a third of the way there! Results Weight: 12st 7lbs (0lbs off, 12.5lbs in total) Measurements: 0.5 inches off waist & chest, 0.25 inches off arms How do I feel about this? Like ****. I could cry :cry:My consultant said I'm probably retaining water and haven't been drinking enough of it this week - apparently you need more water when having the bars (why didn't I know this?!). I really needed to see a loss this week after feeling disappointed with my 2.5lb loss last week. All week I've been feeling demotivated and fighting cravings off constantly. It seems so unfair that I've worked hard all week and stuck to it yet have NO pound loss, not a single pound. Why is my body so f#ck*ng stubborn?! I hate it! BUT... I am choosing to focus on the fact that I've lost 0.5inch off my waist and my chest, so I HAVE lost body fat. I trust the measurements more than the scales. And look at the bigger picture, this is one bad week out of what will be many good ones and an overall attainment of my goal (eventually! however long it takes). Week 5 goal In my head I believe I deserve a big loss next week after this crushing dissappointment. I'm going to be ambitious and go for 4lbs off which will take me to 12st3lbs. Then I have one more weigh in on 31st March when I aim to get into the 11s! I'm going to follow my consultants advice and drink even more water every day. I'm also going to do a couple of 30 Day Shred workouts and continue with the walking. Food thoughts Perhaps it's the bars that are slowing my weight loss down? I ordered them again for this week (5), one a day during the week. So I'll see how the next weigh in goes, and if it's another dissappointment I'm going back to just shakes, soups and savoury meals. Cravings can F#*K OFF. I'm so determined to do well this week nothing will get in the way! Have a great week CWPers, I hope you're doing better than I am! xx
Oh Lauren I feel your pain. I've been there and it is so disappointing. Each week feels like an eternity too when you're waiting on the loss. The thing I always remember, however hard, is that you have been 100% so you must be burning fat, regardless of what the scales say.
On the bars, I have cut back on them and the spag Bol which is also higher in carbs. I am not having them as often now. Don't know if it makes a difference but obviously the less carbs the better.
I am sure this coming week will be better!
