refeed disaster

Hy folks wondered if you can help me?
I got to my 10th week last Thursday 4st 5lbs loss n started the refeed, I'm now following a low card diet as I still have 3 stone to loose. But over 4 days I've put on 5lb I can hardly eat anything and what I am eating is meats n greens. So I'm thinking of going back to TFR to reach my goal? What do u think? I just don't feel ready to eat as I'm not at my goal so I'm getting more annoyed that it's going back on already? My thinking is once I'm at my goal weight I'll be more telexed if I do put a couple back on after all 5-7lbs gain is not THAT bad when the total weight loss is nearly 7st.. Any advice? Xxx :-/

I think when you start eating again... you will put a little on anyway... as you will again be storing a bit of water with your carbs.... it will probably settle down....

With regards to getting to your goal... maybe see if it settles down if not then go back TFR.... depends how impatient you are!! Lol...

Good luck hun!! Let us know how you get on!! x
Thanks deezer, I'm going to give it till Friday. I was saying on the TFR thread I might try 2 drinks and a meal n see how that goes. I think on TFR you get in a comfort blanket maybe a bit lazy so it's like a reality check that you have to do more lol.. But I'm also soooo impatient haha nice to see you on refeed xx

Don't panic, this is fluid and you can expect some water gain in the first week of refeed. I'm on week two of refeed and still on shakes and small amount of foods so that is the only reason I haven't gained.

It did work!!! YEAH!!!

Did you refeed for just one week? Cause I know most people who lose over 3 stone are recommended to do it over 2 weeks.
It can be down to your body getting used to 'real food' again and will even out once it realises that this will be 'the norm'. You could also post your menus just so that we could maybe make sure you are eating as the plan suggests (not that I'm saying you aren't!)
