    Well week 3 has passed without incident, and without having any scales it really has removed all pressure of how much weight I have lost so far.
    BUT.... It must be working. Today I fit back into my old Next work trousers, a size 14!!!!!!
    They are a little snug but much better than wearing the uber baggy sized 16's.....

    It was really funny at my CDC appt, she covered my eyes and was told not to make any reaction to how much I may or not have lost. I have 3 weeks left exactly until I go on holiday, I will be weighed in that morning then fly out, but I am already nervous as I do not want to sabotage my good work too badly whilst away ( but will not be following any plan, just low carb/ fat) and straight back on the wagon when I return as will still need to shift a good 2.5 stone!!!

    Have a brilliant week everyone.

    It is highly liberating not having the scales. All I can do is get my head down and crack on. I am not having any panics that one week showed a small loss and the 7 days following praying for a larger one.....
    It isn't for everyone but it seems to be working well for me :D
    If there is any pitfall it is not being able to adjust my stats and see how my bmi is deceasing yet.
    How are you getting on??

    fine, i think. weigh in is this evening. By my weigh in this morning I will hopefully have cracked the two and a half stone mark - depending on how heavy the day actually makes me, IYKWIM. Which is, as near as damnit, a third of the way to my first goal (BMI below 30 for IVF referral).


    Still, I'm nine weeks and 1 day through and not come off the plan yet. That's what I should be most pleased with, i guess. How are you finding it?
