Disappointing result on the scales tonight

well I had a really bad result on the scales tonight. I was up 1.5 pounds. I sware, if I continue like this I’m going to scream, the same damn 2 pounds gaining and then losing it for the past 3 or 4 weeks. Ug. Sigh. Its annoying and thats putting it mildly. Anyway. My consultant gave me some tips. Basically she said I’ve reached a plateau, and I basically cant go any further unless I do something to drastically change things, basically in a nutshell I have to now work twice as hard in order to lose the weight. As if I wasnt already working hard enough! She told me that maybe I should try eating more speed, that means a ton more vegetables. So I am going to start having stir frys. I am going to eat stir fry at least 3 or 4 times a week from here on out. I am also going to completely cut out bread. I am going to stop buying breaded chicken and breaded fish and other high fat foods. I wasnt eating a lot of them but I was still eating some. I will have slimming world meals on days where I feel tired or dont want to cook because at least I know the slimming world meals are free from fat. She basically told me to bulk up my plate as well with extra vegetables, so that I get extra speed in, and eat more fruit as that is speed food too. So with that in mind I am hoping I can start losing again. I wont be going next week but the week after I am hoping for at least a 5 pound weight loss. I know if I work super hard I can lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks. I’ll also be exercising so that will also help. I was very disappointed tonight but what can you do, it happens, I cant lose all the time I guess even if I want to.

  1. Whenever I stopped losing weight or started gaining, I actually had a few days of eating rubbish and then went back to the healthy eating. It seems counterintuitive but it really worked.

    1. Well I did have a subthis week so maybe that’s part of why I gained but I don’t know I seem to be gaining every other week and it’s so annoying I hope with all my heart I can lose some weight over the next two weeks because I’m getting really depressed about gaining


  2. I was just reading an article about weight loss and low carbs. It was saying once a week or now and again you can do a carb refeed. It helps bust fat burning. But you will probably gain a few pounds from it. But that it will mostly be water gain and you will lose it in 2 to 3 days. May want to try that.

    If you are doing low carbs but eating them once in a while, like your sub or more than one day like the breading on some foods other days could be the problem. Maybe your not giving yourself enough time between eating it and your weigh in to lose or if your gaining maybe your eating them to many days. It said if you eat bad carbs to often or to many it won’t work even if you cut down.

      1. I am about 25lbs from where I want to be. I decided tonight I want to hit it hard the rest of this month and try to drop as much as I can by the end of the month. I have not really tried to lose what I have this far. But I don’t want to wait months to a year to lose the last 20.

  3. Oh how sad is that. I hope though that next time you go to slimming world things will look much better and you’ll lose some. I never did any serious dieting as you know because I never had to luckily, but maybe it’s partly because of the time of the year? In those autumn and winter months when it gets colder, the metabolism is usually slower apparently. Perhaps you could also get some capsaicin in, that thing that is in chilli and some other hot spices? It speeds the metabolism up, and as you like spicy things, maybe it would be a yummy and healthy addition to your veggies. Just thinking, as I don’t have much experience with dieting as I said, so you don’t have to listen to me haha. I really hope for the best next time you get weighed in, it has to be really depressing.
