3 Week Weigh In

I weighed in last week.

I stayed the same.

I was gutted.

So gutted, that I had a little cry last night. Big, fat tears. Sobbing till I couldn't catch my breath. So, in fact, more than a little cry.

I was having a bit of a "woe is me" evening. I felt like a failure. I felt that I was letting people down.

I felt the pressure.

I'm still feeling the pressure today, and don't really know how to handle it. It's starting to dawn on me just how big a challenge 3 stone is. I've never lost 3 stone before - what makes me think I can do it this time?

I know that having a baby is (and should be) the biggest motivation there is, but it's the same motivation I've had since I started dieting over 6 years ago and, as yet, I'm no thinner.


  1. Oh hon, I've been there, done that, bought all the t-shirts and mugs and magnets (that's what we tourists in the USA do all the time). I didn't really have much success until the diabetes hit, and then I didn't REALLY see results until the combination of diet, exercise, and drugs (Metformin ER and Victoza) for my blood sugar. 3 stone is a whole hell of a lot to lose - 42 lbs. - and I'm close to that, but only due to my medication regimen. I feel for you, because I've been there so often (as you know!).

    I was 242 when I got pregnant and 257 the day I gave birth, so it can happen. :)


  2. Naomi 3 st is a lot but you can do it. I know you don't think you can, but you CAN!
    Did you see the dietician yet?
    Sending you loads of PMA and lots of love xxx

  3. Thanks both.
    It's been a really tough week, and more than a few tears have been shed, but I'm feeling much better today.
    Helen - no sign of the dietician appointment yet - the GP only received the letter last Thursday, and had to send the referral off from there. They didn't know / couldn't tell me how long I'd then wait for the appointment to come through - it will be just my luck that my first dietician's appointment will be AFTER my next appointment at gynea!
