    Poo. That's all I can say. Only lost another couple of ounces tonight. OUNCES! Sheesh. That's three weeks on the trot. :rolleyes:

    We did measure, as my LLC is as puzzled as I am. Good news is I have lost 6 inches since I returned from holiday. I know that part is great. I do. But the weight is important too. ANd I just don't understand why its not moving.

    <sigh> I'm discouraged. Not beaten - by no means - but seriously discouraged.

    but you are still losing and thats all that counts.

    Its disheartening, I know - I'm well with you on that one. I'm starting to gain and panic cos I feel like I have lost control.

    Look at your day - has anything changed at all, drinking less?

    Why not split your packs over the day for a possible boost and see what happens.

    Have you started exercising so your body has gone into starvation mode?

    I hope you feel more positive soon xx

    Hi BL, I can relate to how you feel... I've had a couple of weeks where the weight hasn't been shifting, last week was a pound again. I can at least put mine down to not drinking as much water. Since leaving my job it's been more difficult to keep the water intake on an even keel! I start my new job next monday (I think/I hope) so hopefully I'll be able to remedy that. Please don't feel downhearted, you've achieved so much and the weight will come off!! Sometimes it seems so near and yet so far doesn't it? I'm starting to get bored now and hate not being busy cos I keep thinking about food!! and I don't want too!!! Argh :eek:

    Hey Bl- dont feel too down but I know how rubbish it must feel. You are working so hard and not getting the results you want.
    My suggestion? do it different this week.
    I know you save your packs till the eveing- try spreading them out evenly. and maybe try and do some excercise.
    Maybe your body is asking for a little bit of help to shift the last bit?
    I would reccommend the excercise. Even if its brisk walking for an hour or so.
    You will feel fab afterwards aswell. Or do you have a girlfriend you could join like wateraerobics with? or go on ur own!
    Iv heard those classes are really fun. and if you start off light it doesnt become something that you dread!
    thinking of you

    Hi everyone....thanks for your comments.

    I know its a loss, and all in the right direction, but each week I get a loss in ounces, all I see is the end date of the diet being pushed back weeks. Truth is, I want it to come FORWARD lol - I really want to get to the end and get on with it.

    I have found, all the well meaning people that keep giving me strokes, and telling me I look great as I am, that I don't need to lose more weight - while they mean well, it gives me a false sense of confidence, but then, in quiet times, when I am in reality, I KNOW I still have a fair journey ahead of me, and then it gets me down. One minute I am thinking "hmmm, maybe this IS good enough" and I start to get excited, and then the next, when reality smacks me on the chin, i think "No, of course I am not done - 3 stone to go" and then it gets me down a bit. This has been a real struggle for me the past 4 weeks or so. I found out it is very much the same for another lady in group too.

    I just need to refocus, and tune out the chatter - in my head and from others - and keep my eye on what I want so desperatly - my prize.

    I know I will get there, and I know nothing will make me lapse.....no matter how crazy it all makes me feel, I have promised myself to remain 100% until I am done, which is exactly what I intend to do. I just want it to be over. Thats all. But alas - "t'ain't over til the fat lady sings." Don't know any of them anymore - :D - does that mean it will never be over!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH :D

    Thanks peeps. You are all stars.

    Hey BL
    You know I am feeling exactly the same. I weigh myself every morning I know some say its not right but I do anyway and seeing as I have been a very very good girl its exciting to get on every morning and see the numbers move down slowly but surely. And then this morning I am nearly 3lbs heavier than I was yesterday morning, how the hell does that work. I feel GRRRR and frustrated funny though the idea of food is not there I am just frustrated and annoyed. I am so so so close but I wanted to finish at the end of the month and now what.
    Hang in there friend in the end we will both get there. By hook or by crook.
    That is what I keep telling myself even though today I just want to :cry:

    BL - I know it must be really disheartening, but you are one of the ones I have found a complete inspiration. I know it's how it goes with weight loss, peaks and troughs..but focus on the overall loss cos it is amazing and you would have never done that in that amount of time on any other diet. I bet you have a huge loss to follow and I can't wait for you to post what that is!! xxx
