1lb! Why am I doing this....

Posted , 3 users are following.

Ok so I am not the best!

But I have been taking them for three weeks (ish) and I went for mt weigh in last night a frigging pound!

What's the point of filling my body with meds if this is what happened!

I did have a week off the gym as I have been low and on top of that busy. But that should not have stopped anything.

I am so gutted right now I just don't know what todo.

    was this weigh in with the GP/nurse? did they discuss it with you?

    Try and remember that any initial weight loss is water and you may not be carrying that much, also if you are working out at the gym you are going to be toning muscles and muscles weigh more than fat.

    Lots of people on here have taken measurements and find that even though the weight isn't coming off their body was still changing.

    don't get disheartened if you haven't already spoken to the GP/nurse/dietician then make an appt and ask for their input.

    I go to slimming world and I was there this week with one pound off.

    I didn't go to the gym last week so prob my fault! I just don't like putting this drug in my body for no reason!

    I have been to the gym three times this week and I am just finishing off planning a wedding (on the 17th Sept) for my friend so all stress of that too

    I have been on this (weight) for over two years now, just need to get this op done now!

    So I know I shouldn't but I am on the scales every day! And there is no change ...... I am getting more than a little peed off with it! Which in turn makes me want to eat more so I feel like I am on this spiral down wards grrr feel a little out of control at the moment.

    On top of that ....... I have found a lump in my right breast I have been to the docs they have said they will get it scanned but this is weeks away! So I have to live with it till then, I am worried as I have wanted my boobs cut off for a long time and I feel this is lime some sort of pay back! Grrr angry worried is not a good mix with weight loss!

    Aww you're not having a good time.

    You need to keep youreself occupied so you don't think about food all the time. Fingers crossed for breast check up .

    Hope things improve for you soon xx

    Hi Angel Bridal

    Hope your feeling better.

    I found logging on here to look at other peoples's comments or to have a rant can help but it is very quiet on here at the mo.

    By the way a pound is almost 1/2 a bag of sugar and a pound off is better than one on so isn't that the equivalent of losing 2 pounds ? lol

    Hi Hope your weigh in wasn't as bad as you thought.

    You were right not to take time off the tablets you need to be fairly well and in right frame of mind.

    Hope you've recoveredfrom your virus x
