Started slimming world in September 2013 and within 6 weeks had lost 1 1/2 stone! had a couple of health problems since and my losses have become less consistent yet I managed to keep losing and found myself getting down to 14 stone 3lbs (my 2stone award). Then xmas hit.. and I gave up smoking, since then my past 4 weigh ins have been gains and big ones! I have gone from 14.3 up to 14.9 over the past 4 weeks and have even slipped below my club 10 target I have been told my loads of people that this is due to being ill again for a couple of weeks over xmas and also giving up smoking, but can this really give me gains this often and this big? I have stuck to my slimming world food plan and it just seems like I have gone from losing 2/3lb a week on this plan to gaining 2/3lbs a week with no explanation s I have stuck to plan! I have even upped my cardio and nothing seems to be stopping the gains, can quitting smoking really cause all this!? any tips for halting the slide and turning it back round again!?
