I lost 7lb in my first week, and now I could kick myself for being such a greedy guts!

I lost 7lb at my first weigh in last Thursday, I was chuffed!

I then went away on a girly weekend the same night and drank copious amounts of wine, and had rich meals.

I've come back and put it all back on, I'm so so pissed off with myself sad I was only away for three days and can't believe its gone back on so easily.

I've been saintly since yesterday, but hate weighing in when I've put on. Come and talk some sense into me please as I'm dreaming of chocolate biscuits ....

IMO you will always put weight back on if you lose it that quickly. It simply isn't sustainable (and was probably mostly water anyway)

Aim for 1lb per week and you can make steady progress without being completely deprived and feeling the need for chocolate biscuits quite so much.

If it hadn't been the girly weekend it would have been a tin of biscuits at work or piles of toast late one evening at home.

Is this the wierdy red/green day diet? Unlimited foods?

Agree it was fluids you lost and re gained.

I feel your pain. I lost a stone last year through careful eating and exercise but got sick of the running so stopped. Tried to be careful with what I ate but pretty much all the weight has gone back on now. So fucked off with myself.

I agree, 7lbs in a week isn't sustainable. This is the problem that all weight clubs have, they put the emphasis on what the scales say. I know there's no other sensible alternative really but we all get so hung up on having HUGE losses that simply aren't a good thing. Losing it that quickly meant a lot of it was muscle or water, either way it's not surprising you've gained it all back so quickly. Having said that, Slimming World is good and WILL work for nearly everyone. It's basically just a healthy eating program that encourages you to fill yourself up on fruit and veg (Super free). You have to be honest and stick to it and not worry too much about this 7lbs.

I have been following Slimming World for 2 months and lost 15lbs (nearly 2lbs a week average). Never gained any back and I am finding it easy to stay on track (Except for Christmas week when I maintained but did go wildly off plan for 4 days!) The key is not to let any weight gains or maintains get to you and make you feel like it's not worth it. If you want this to work long term, you have to forgive yourself and crack on with the plan. Draw a line under it and get on with it.

There will be no doubt times when you fall off plan and make bad food decisions but the key is to just keep plugging away. Every pound off is a pound in the right direction and you can do it. Good luck, you'll soon be getting that stone award smile
