Your WI isn't until Thursday so don't worry about today's result.

If you have stuck to plan, the only reason to have a gain will be it it's your TOTM.

Wait until Thursday, you'll be surprised I'm sure!

Your body naturally fluctuates throughout the week - try not to weigh between your set weigh in days as seeing a slight gain might dishearten you for the rest of the week.

Good luck for Thursday!

wait until Thursday to see the 'official' weight loss - i weigh in the week and it makes me go mad - i can differ by up to 4lbs between days - just from what im wearing, to the time of day etc!

Good luck x

i put on on my 2nd week, i think something it can be down to your body being in a bit of shock and holding on to what you have. don't dispair, bet it comes off :)

Last week I had a 1lb gain, week before 1.5lb loss & week before that 2lb gain. I just couldn't understand why as I always stick to the plan and I count all my syns.

I emailed my diary to my C who said I should try drinking more & make sure I was eating 1/3 superfree foods. So I'm giving that a whirl & hopefully I'll soon be at target:D

Maybe keep an eye on your portion sizes, it is easy to overeat if you're not careful on EE. Well for me anyways, but maybe I'm just greedly :p

Hi Freddy, never weigh before your official weigh in for this very reason! I can weigh at least 5lb heavier from one day to the next, thankfully I dont pay too much attention, but you can see how easy it would be for someone to say "stuff it" and fall off the wagon because the scales dont show a loss.
See what happens on Thursday!!
