Week Four weigh in

Well I'm just going to come out and say it.

I didn't lose any weight this week.

I didn't put any on either, but trust me that is not going to make me happy at this exact moment.

I'm annoyed, I admit it.  I've been a good girl, I have. and if I am putting in the effort to not eat crap then I fully expect my body to reward me by shedding a couple of pounds. I don't think I am asking too much do you? It isn't as though I don't have a lot to lose, surely my body could have given up just one pound, just to be NICE to me to for once.

I was extremely worried about this weigh in, purely because I have spent this whole week shovelling hard core pain killers down my throat like they were smarties (Mmmmmmmmmm, smarties) and I have to wonder whether these have had an effect on my weight loss this week.

I haven't eaten any differently to how I usually do either. So yes I am pretty upset over staying the same weight.

Now this is where it gets interesting.

I got off the scales, kicked them and gave them a filthy look (as you do) and my instant response was to run to Sainsburys and buy the biggest bar of chocolate they stock and eat it all in one sitting.

That is what I would usually do anyway.

But I didn't. I bought mushrooms instead (I'm such a rebel)

So perhaps this is what my body is trying to teach me this week. New habits, I can lose weight any time, but I know I still have so much to learn and change about my lifestyle.
The old Kellie would turn and reach for the things that are bad for you when something goes wrong, but this time I didn't.

So perhaps I did shed something after all?

Another layer of the old Kellie has gone, revealing part of the new Kellie that I am striving to reach. It isn't just about the weight loss, it is about learning to undo the old habits and make new ones,

This isn't a fairytale ending, I know that I will come up against this again in the future but I have this week as a foundation. I didn't crack and give into temptation. I carried on with the new healthy lifestyle and I hope to be rewarded for it next week.

Now does anyone want a mushroom? I seem to have lots.

  1. I think you've gained something very valuable. Well done for not going back to your old habits. They're the hardest things to kick. I usually find around the 4 - 5 week mark, I may not lose a lot (if any) but check your measurments (if you're keeping record) - you might notice a loss in inches.


  2. Keep up the good work! I find the hardest part is keeping good eating habits and not giving in to snacking (crisps are my irresistable foe). I almost gave in last weekend but I thought NO, I'm not alone out there, I can do this! Screw the scales! Go with how clothes feel instead... I hate getting hooked on stupid numbers! V Xx

  3. Good on you choosing mushrooms and not chocolate. I'm at that stage at the moment where I just want to be an instant size 12 and can't understand why I'm not as I'm being soooo good :(. But making those positive choices can only be good. We'll look back at this in June and laugh (hopefully!)

  4. I was exactly the same last week - don't give up! It's probably just a hormone thing. You'll lose it next week!


  5. It can be so frustrating when you don't lose anything even though you haev been so good. I don't have a great deal of weight left to lose so I am finding it really hard to shift the final 5 pounds or so. I feel your pain but all we can do is crack on and hope for the best! Good luck for next week x

  6. My husband did the same SureSlim diet and had one week where he didn't lose anything but the next week was really good. Just stick to it
