Monday Weigh-In (Free Skinny Me!) – Week 7

Monday Weigh-In

If you’re expecting an upbeat and positive post from me today you may as well stop reading now because I’m fed-up, disheartened and not at all upbeat nor positive.

I’ve gained.

I’ve gained a whole half a pound.

It may not seem much and you’re probably laughing at how such an insignificant amount can make me so moody but I am just so frustrated!

I have been so careful with what I’m eating. It’s normally muesli for breakfast (all weighed out and ProPointed correctly), a big huge salad for lunch and then my evening meal and hot chocolate and snack before bed… again all ProPointed.  I’m well within my limits and I’m not even using all my extra 49 points per week. 

So why aren’t I losing?!
I am resigning myself to being fat forever.

Forever fat.

Polishing off the apple crumble this morning after I weighed myself probably won’t help this weeks efforts.  You may as well not bother coming back next week.  It’ll only be a gazillion pound gain.


Woe is me.

Not a pretty pity party going on here, is it? 

My report for this week is as follows:

Starting weight: 13st 1 (or 183lbs)

Week 6 results: Gained ½ lb

Current weight: 12st 3lbs (171lbs)

Total loss to date: 12lbs

Amount to lose before freeing Skinny Me: 48lbs (still).

I’m off to wallow.  Pass the chocolates.

  1. It happens. It doesn't mean you've failed or that your body is betraying you. It definitely does NOT mean that you will forever be fat. The body fluctuates. Heck, In the past 4 weeks, I've gained FIVE pounds! Now that I'm at my target weight, no matter how good I behave and how well I stick to my diet, the normal body fluctuations are really noticeable, and frustrating! But – it happens. If I stick to doing the right things, my body weight will shift back down. And so will yours.

  2. You may try eating more of your Points. I lose better esp. when I am breastfeeding if I eat all my dailies plus my extra Points. I have about 50 to goal and my baby is 6 months. This is with no exercise at all I am averaging 2 lbs a week loss. This week I tried to go easy on my Points due to holiday and my weight doesn't seem to be budging. Hormonal flucuations wreak havoc too. Hang in there Mama!

  3. Don't beat yourself up! This time of year we are all going up and down.
    I did the same thing last week, so frustrated with my weight that I decided the heck with it and polished of the entire cheesecake, by-my-self!
    But this is not the end. Get up, put on a smile and keep going! The weight will go, just keep going and don't stop. Even if you eat an entire cheesecake. Each day is a new start!!
