You didn't mention how long you have been doing the diet, or how close to goal you are? If you are near the end, its normal to slow down?? Is it TTOM or anything like that?

At least you did lose - but I can understand the dissappointment after being so good during a tough time to be good! Well done for that anyway!!

Oh yes sorry, I'm on week 12 of foundation, but still have loads to go. I'm about half way, so I'll likely be on developers for another 3 months at least.

I've been reading some of the threads about people finding it difficult to get back on track after christmas so I guess there is always a bright side, its just difficult when it took so much will power to not eat!

I can imagine - thats what I felt for you - all that strength you would want to see a big reward!!! :) but pat yourself on the back anyway because that in itself was a huge success. HUGE!!

I bet you will see a big loss next week. I used to find at times, for no explainable reason, I would have a good loss every other week....so maybe you are in for a treat at your next WI. You would certainly deserve it!!!

Hang in there.....I think just the fact that you learned enough to abstain over the holidays is a massive success in its own right and you should feel quite proud of that!!! :)

Let us know how you get on enxt week...will keep my fingers crossed for you for a big loss!! :)

And over all, you are doing fantastic!! Very close to our halfway to goal mark!! That must feel good!!!
Yes, agree with all of the above. I've even gained one week, and I've never cheated and don't have periods, so no hormones to blame. You just have to take the long view, as you know, and we really do lose about a stone a month.

Bodies are weird, aren't they? But just keep on keeping on, as they say, and you'll get your reward in the end!

If you look at my info, I lost only 0.8 lbs one week (did nothing different) but had a good one the following week. These are the times you have to stay strong - there is no way you CAN'T lose weight if you are staying abstinent - so just look forward to BIG rewards at next weigh in!
