That feeling when you step on the scales after a brilliant week on plan. You’ve made wise choices, rejected carbs and eaten alternatives, stayed away from cake and only eaten the calories within your syns allowance. The scales say you’ve maintained this week. Gutted!
This is the first week in 24 consecutive weeks that I haven’t lost any weight. I’ve not really done anything different. I’ve instagrammed my meals (making me accountable for what I’m eating) and drank lots of water. I really can’t see why I’ve not lost this week, it’s not my ‘time of the month’ although my skin has broken out in spots so I’m guessing it’s my hormones playing tricks on me.
I’m disappointed that I’ve not lost and see it as another week that I’m heavier and another week away from achieving my goals. I spoke to hubby about it and he’s rightly reminded me there’s no time limit, no deadline to lose the weight and of course, he’s right (but sshhhh, don’t tell him!) Hand on heart, I think I’m disappointed as I’m afraid I’ll do the same things this week, follow the plan and not lose again. I’m afraid of failing and losing my weightloss mojo. I’ve been there before so of course it could happen again but I really don’t want to go there.
Back to basics this week. I’ll be following the Extra Easy plan with plenty of fruit and vegetables, I’ll be limiting my syns and writing everything down on a SW SAS daily log to see if there’s something in my diet that’s hindering my weightloss. Back on it tomorrow, the weight won’t lose itself. Seven days to choice wisely, drink plenty and move more. Goodness knows how and when I’m going to get exercise in to my weekly schedule but I’m going to try! PMA all the way and next week, that weightloss is mine!
