    I've been good this week and my weigh in is on monday but i havent lost any weight this week so far. I'm feeling so down about this and just feel like a binge coming on!

    try not to have a sneeky peak on the scales. please do not have a binge as you will feel worse afterwards. you may be surprised when you weight in on monday. weight does fluctuate during the day/week.
    Good luck sharon

    Please wait until Monday as you never know how accurate your scales are. I shouldnt be saying anything as I am a serial scale hopper :ashamed0005: but try to put the numbers out of my mind and just concentrate on the SW scales. Good luck :)

    only mondays weigh in counts. You never know what will happen then. I am a serial weigher too and know the scales can not budge at all then leap down on weigh in day. if you follow the plan 100% you will lose weight.

    I always used to weigh myself even when I'd hit target it just didn't stop. But one week I weighed in the morning & by eve at group I weighed more than expected, the following week in the morning I weighed more than the previous week but less at group:rolleyes: The only WI which matters is at group, hide those scales.

    if you come back monday and say you havnt lost weight, then thats fine.. wel all be more than happy to help you!! but you cant expect a loss to show on your own scales after only a few days, .. and weighing outside of class only makes you feel like crap! step away from the scales and give it a chance xxxx

    Even if the scales don't say what you want on Monday don't get down. I was well miffed at a STS week that I didn't think I deserved but 6lbs came off the following week. Wasn't grumpy then! :D

    thanks everyone i feel a lot more positive and you guys are right i need to get rid of the scales. last week they showed i lost 3 and half pounds but when i got weighed i had lost only 2 and half. I think i might not be eating enough so thats why i may not lose weight as our consultant usually asks the ladies that havent lost any weight if they were eating and drinkin enough which i'm not as i have been bunged up with a cold.

    My SW consultant says if you follow the plan 100% you should be doing about 2lbs a week.

    I know we all want to lose lots per week but its not 100% healthy. And 2lbs a week is like 104lb over a year!!

    Dont forget, what you get weighed in at home, to at class ;)

    Its medically recommended to lose between 1 and 2lbs a week as any more than that usually means you are losing lean muscle tissue (which obviously isn't a good thing!) of course we always want more but what we want isn't necessarily good for us :)
