    2.5lb for eating nothing all week?!! :mad: I can live with 3lb at a push (in the hope that I'll lose more next time). But at my weight I do expect about 4lb.

    Suddenly my goal of being 15st by May 10th looks completely impossible. Think I'm going to struggle now, as I'm off work and do not have the positivity that has been driving me before today.

    Seeing that on the scales couldn't have been more painful if the things had jumped off the bathroom floor and smacked me in the face! :doh:

    Motivation zapped :cry:

    Aw don't be disheartened, did you use the same scales? Did you drink enough water?

    Hello, thanks for your support!

    Yes I used same scales.
    Water, Im not sure? I drink a lot (because I seem to get dehydrated quickly); but perhaps I need to measure it just in case I'm overestimating what I have. I'll try that :) xx

    Exactly the reason I put the scales away

    I weigh monthly now, and that has been so liberating! :D

    Please don't get despondent, the weight will come off - just not in the lovely linear way we would like ;)

    Well done on your loss!

    It seems that lots of people who have a small loss one week usually make it up in the next which is good. :)
