    NOT FAIR I have lost the 4 bits of K that I had gained back to 43.1 .Do you think that I should dismantle my (sorry daughters !) Weighing machine and look inside for them :arghh:

    A very uplifting surprise today to find that I am 9st 8 and one eighth pounds (sorry I'm still on stones and pounds) I can hardy take it in as just a few weeks back the scales wouldn't budge off 10st x

    Looks like a plateau has arrived so will try some resistance exercise...

    I get massive liver dumps when I skip a meal @coby. There are so many times I just haven’t wanted to eat as well I know it’d be so easy for me. Do you think I should just ignore the liver dump and push on for weight loss? I go up from 5 to 9/10 and get nauseous but could power through! Gah just typing that it, no that is a mental plan. Is it?!

    I'm not sure Dandelade. We are all different and I don't seem to get DP for some reason ... or it happens early and I miss it?

    After three weeks of gains (totally 4.5lbs), I have managed to reign it back in with a 3.25lb loss this week.

    80.4kg an increase of 1.1kg since my last weigh in a couple of weeks ago. Gave up watching diet for a couple of weeks. Ate all the wrong things but back on track and considering not too much damage. A good lesson in how easy it is to revert to bad eating habits.

    Not the best of weeks, back up to 75.9kg which I think isn’t totally unrelated to added water but then we are mostly water probably so not exactly the best excuse! It’s about 2.5kg higher in general to what I had plateaued at so not massively bad, but still direction is more the thing…

    it is what it is, I’m still fitting into my clothes, don’t look too bad and my personal trainer already thought I was too light previously so going to take it but need to be careful. It is really easy to put the weight back on, much harder to get it off!

    So this week lost one pound after 4 weeks of net zero! Fingers crossed it’s a resuming of weight loss.

    And nope didn’t do anything differently as I bought a libre to see if my sugars were the reason I wasn’t losing and kept the faith in the process. Just kept to the same lchf diet, more gardening and dog walking on weekends...

    1lb back on this week. Think I might finally have hit a point where I can no longer reliably lose week after week doing what I'm doing, which is fine. It was going to happen eventually. Just need to knock a few calories on the head now, stick to what I have been doing and try to get out on my feet a bit more. Been a few too many days where I haven't done my steps (although the other days, I've gone well over my steps)
