Title says it all, after a very indulgent weekend I had a sneaky look at the scales this morning (I don't usually do this) and they showed a 3lb gain!
I don't even do that on holiday in a week...

So, started today with 3 days of success express in the hope that it may make a little bit of a difference, 2lb on wouldn't be as bad as 3.......It was tough making bacon butties for our guests today whilst I ate fruit and yoghurt!

Success express is for when you need a boost to your weight loss, you have 3 meals a day of which 1/3 is free food (red or green) and 2/3rd is superfree foods. You have 2A's and 2 B's but only snack inbetween meals on superfree foods.

It's tough, but hopefully will be a bit of damage limitation!

I'm in same boat as you hun! Bank holiday weekend I went away with the girls, then i worked away for 3 days and couldnt cook so had to eat out at night, then big night out friday night, then massive hangover Sat lol! I also did the sneaky weighing and have put on 2.5lbs. My WI is tomorrow, so I am eating no syns for next 2 days. Sadly there is very little salad/fruit in house (shopping day tomorrow) so I'm just eating free food, 2 x HEA and 1 xHEB for today and tomorrow.

Good luck!!

3lbs won't be your real result...you should know that! ;) That sneaky weigh won't be registering actual fat gained from the weekend. It will be water/bloating/indulgent stuff in your system.

Success express is the right way to go to mitigate the damage though, I think you're still doing the right thing :)

You'll lose that 3lb with success express no probs :D I wouldn't worry, we all have indulgent times, as long as you get back to it no permanent damage will be done ;)

Hi,
I'm new to sw, long story re me joining, but i've just done a week, well, tomorrow. Think i've lost 2lbs, but there's been a few things in the week i've done wrong or counted wrong. I really need a good weight loss to start me off and keep me motivated. Could i lose more by doing success express? should i try that to begin with do you think?
Thanks xx

Hiya cw,

I think 2 lbs is a great way to start off - I'm a huge believer in 'slow and steady wins the race'! It's certainly better than I did (put on 0.5 lbs after my first week).

Personally, take your time to get your head around the plan - you're not the only one to get things wrong at the beginning - and once that's all sorted, you might find your losses each week get a little bigger as you start to understand what your body responds best to.

Save Success Express for when times get really tough, you're just not losing and you need a kick up the bottom - no need to make life harder for yourself yet.

Good luck at WI tomorrow!

After a bad weekend last weekend, I, too, had gained when I weighed myself on the Mon morning. This week, I've lost 3.5lbs. Now I KNOW I haven't lost that much (the most I've lost has been 2lbs), it was all the water (ahem - beer, wine, brandy) that was in my stomach last week.

Bet you're suprised at your WI

Very true, but by goodness, it gives you a kick up the bum seeing it on the scales! :)

Thanks Hellie and thanks to everyone else for your support! xxx

Yep...it does make you panic doesn't it!! I have to admit to doing that myself, seeing the numbers and then living off celery and grapefruit on Mon, Tues and Weds!!
