WI Week 45 - heading in the wrong direction

I had to weigh in a day early this week and the scales registered a 500g gain! I really don’t know what to say – I am crushed to say the least – two gains in a row is sooo disheartening – At this moment I am feeling like maybe this is it – maybe this is the best I can do…

I really hate the fact that I allow the scales to decide what type of week I had – until I stepped on the scales I was feeling good – I was positive – I had a good week – I increased my exercise – had a couple of outing where I handled the food situation extremely well – but the moment I stood on those scales and got the results all that was gone…..

The challenge I face now is moving on from this – putting this into perspective - it is only a 600g gain – I have still lost 31.3kg – I have proven to myself over the last 45 weeks that I am more than capable of losing ALL of this weight.


  1. Just keep at it Jody! It is really important to see your weight loss over a period of time, not just one or two weeks...which you are doing! That is really positive! You are doing an incredible job so far! 31+kg down! WOW!!! Just think of all the people who have the wrong attitude and say "that is too hard"...you are strong...you are not staying in the easy lifestyle...you are doing it!

    And you will keep doing it...i can see your determination! :)

  2. Hey Jody! its time to pull out the non scale victories (NSV) to remind yourself of all the things that you can now do that you could not do before you started this journey.

    The first of them is handling food choices really well this week and what about those those amazing stats you posted last week!!How many clothing sizes have you dropped?? Improvements in your health?? I am sure you will have a very long list

    I have a list which I am continually adding to as a reminder of how far I have come. It is posted on the bathroom mirror as a daily reminder of how much I have achieved

    Remember you are worth it and the scales are not the only reward of this journey

  3. Oh I know, it IS disheartening. Please don't let it get you down though. Ignore the scales this week....just ignore them!
