Shel_bel's weekly weigh in!

Postby shel_bel » Mon Jan 14, 2013 7:11 pm

My weekly weigh ins happen on Thursdays but I thought I'd start this thread with how I'm doing so far. I don't have scales at home so Thursdays can be a bit nerve wracking for me!

SW - 120.9
Week 1 - 119.4 (-1.5)
Week 2 - 118.8 (-0.6)
Week 3 - 117.5 (-1.3)
Week 4 - 116.9 (-0.6) measurements taken - totalling 34cm loss including 6cm off waist, 7 cm off hips)
Week 5 - 115.2 (-1.7)
Week 6 - 114.8 (-0.4)
Week 7 - 114.8 (+-0.0)

Looking forward to seeing this week's result as I am back at work and now in my regular routine.

Good one shel bel. Measuring is really good to do when scales don't show a minus. Keep up the good job

So I had a bit of a jolt yesterday. I gained 100 grams. Now, I know this is not a significant amount of weight and I do have my lady issues due in the coming week, so maybe it's a bit of fluid retention.. I had not cheated on the meal plan and had been to the gym 4 times,.an hour each time. I feel different though - there has been considerable differences in the way my clothes are fitting. I also measured myself and lost 2cm off my waist and bust. I'll just keep at it, the stupid scales are NOT going to get me down!

It is not only water retention; it is very likely muscle being made that is masking your weight loss. That is why your measurements show shrinkage but your scales don't. Muscle is a good thing. It will burn calories off you faster in the long run. :D All that gym work will pay dividends very soon. Just be patient...remember weight loss is a long distance race not a sprint!

It will show up in the numbers eventually. You just have to be a bit patient and take the long term view. :D

Thanks Simon :)

I'm a bit cranky with my body today. Weighed in 100 g more than last week (again!). My stupid body seems to have gotten itself into a pattern.
I've got to look at the positives though - I wore a dress I hadn't felt comfortable in for a while and felt great! Also kept to the eating plan and went to the gym. Made good choices on the one day I had something not on my plan (grilled salmon and veggies, and only ate half the piece of salmon).

But it's so difficult to convince myself that everything will be ok. I keep thinking about what else I could have done this week to make that number better, or at least a loss. Argh! Keep trekking on I guess....

It could be simply a case of building muscle or the body catching up with what you have been putting it through. You are right to review what you have done though. It is so easy for a bad practice to creep in and put pay to all your good work.

Keep grinding it out...sooner or later your body will surrender! :lol:

hello shel bel,
i agree with exactly what kim said in his post....100 grams could just be something as simple as retaining more fluids or muscle built up. Please dont be discouraged no matter what , just keep putting your efforts in and eating well it will eventually show your work ..

I have been yo yoing between 127-125 kgs for the last 2 months. So i understand how you are feeling.

You can do it .. just dont let slight gain on the scale turn you off the new you you are looking forward too..

You go go go !! :D
