Grrrrr. I have been dieting for three weeks, and have been SO good, no cakes, no chocolate, very limited fat, i've been eating more salad than a pet shop full of rabbits, loads of fruit and fish...yet STILL I appear to have put on a pound and lost nothing? I don't understand? I know that I should be exercising too, but with a 4 month old, that is proving to be difficult to fit in. I genuinely have been so good with what I eat, so what is going wrong?
I am angry so I ate a bag of chocolate buttons this evening, so now I am angry and upset with myself as I have probably set myself back. I was having a 'Fuck it' moment.
I have a good 3 stone to lose- possibly more to get to where I really want to be. Why is it so hard?
I have struggled to lose weight while breastfeeding. I did Slimming World religiously after my first and it took me six months to lose a stone, but as soon as I stopped feeding I lost 10lb in a week.
Try not to get hung up on the scales. I swore to myself I would ignore them after DC2 but I didn't and have found myself unhappy with a lot of weight to lose, which I don't think would have occurred if I'd not put pressure on myself.
