    Just to add I weigh myself same time of day on Sunday mornings before breakfast and after morning maintenance.

    Hopefully next Sunday will be better, don’t get down though, it honestly can be a difference of one day seemingly huge weight gain for no reason, or in fact weight loss. It’s a journey and quite often a life long change

    Hopefully next week will be better, I'm not going to give up either way as if nothing else this should Hopefully put my type 2 back in to remission. My morning maths was also off, it was a 7lbs gain this morning but after a second morning trip to the loo, that dropped to just a 3lbs gain. Wasn't expecting the 2nd trip and feeling much better about things now as its most likely just water weight.

    I know I shouldn't be focused on the scales but for my surgery, though needing to lose roughly half my current body weight it matters.

    So I've weighed myself a couple of days early as curiosity got the better of me. I'm pleased to say I'm 4lbs down on last weeks weigh in so it seems I've maintained this week, though that's at 5pm and not first thing in the morning.

    31st 9lbs.

    The missus says I look like I'm losing weight though, could my body composition be changing even though I can't exercise?

    Definitely. I had to put new holes in my belt faster than the scales moved.
    And still am. Scales haven't moved since January, but needed another hole this week, and my watch needs another link removing

    You will do it @Vidar No doubt about it. Stay focused and don't give up. It will happen.
    I had my moments wondering how much I'd lose but here I am. I've lost 50% of my excess weight. I'm still classed as overweight but I'm working on not having severe pain from my gallbladder but once it's sorted I feel I'll be able to fight more weight off, somehow. I'd like to be a 14-16uk but currently a 16-18uk.
    You will do this.

    Liking some of these posts. Really inspirational.

    So my numbers since starting to diet when I went on to insulin (in late Jan).

    I've lost 3st 12lbs (and 1 1/2 dress sizes).

    Had a slight wobble this week when the mid week weigh-in (an unofficial check mid week before the official check on Saturday) showed me up by 1kg, but I'm eating healthily and exercising around an hour a day so I'm not stressed.

    Maybe I'm just creating more muscle... :)

    I’ve increased (and decreased) by over a kg day by day. Those sorts of fluctuations are totally normal. It’s the over all trend that’s important

    May monthly chart is attached, I’m around my target weight now so you can see it’s never stable.
