Week Twenty

Sigh, I’m struggling. I’m kind of fed up, but really want to hit goal too.  A friend said to me this week that it is really hard to consistently keep the focus and it really is, I seem to have lost it and I really need to get it back. Actually I would quite like someone to just come and do the hard dieting bit for me and magically make me slimmer, but that’s not going to happen. I need to make the choice and find the focus myself.

So this week was a 0.75lbs gain – not too bad but depressingly 3cm gain in measurements. So I have obviously not done well. I know exactly what to do, I just need to do it. So please tell me – how do you re-find your dieting focus when it has abandoned you? And I hope I can share more positive news with you next week.


Diet following: Cambridge Weight Plan (read more here)

Weight lost this week: +0.75lbs

Number of weeks on the diet: 19 (with a week off and I am not including my holiday weeks)

Weight loss in total: -30.75lbs / 13.95kg


This week:

Bust: +1cm

Waist: +1cm

Hips: +1cm

Arms:  -0cm

Legs: -0cm

Total loss this week: +3cm

Total lost so far: -48cm


My goals are:

  1. Re-find my dieting focus., big time.
  2. Get to three stone – and treat myself to a new pair of jeans.
  3. My non scales goal is to get my wedding rings and eternity ring all on one finger. I’ve got two of them on, I just need to fit the third.

  1. don’t be too hard on yourself. I lost focus last week too but unlike you I’ve been a chicken and not stepped on the scales. I find I bloat majorly around my time of the month could it be the same for you? Just think of those new jeans you are going to buy!!

  2. Oh dear! i’m in a similar boat…. just struggling and when i went to get weighed I’d gained more than I expected but i’m on a double dose due to being extra unwell and the steroids are playing silly games with my body. Keep going Laura! You can do it! 🙂

  3. I struggled the alter part of the week, but I believe it best to dust yourself down and start again. It really hard to keep focused when the ultimate goal is losing weight as food is soo good and dieting is soo pants!

  4. It is interesting that both respondents to your post are also struggling – perhaps it is linked to the change of season, nights drawing in, and our survival instincts telling us to eat while we can before winter comes. I know too well how hard it is to gain two weeks running, but you have to assess the last couple of weeks fairly – you have been very busy with your clients and your blog, and Aria has been teething and had a nasty cold. Everything is more difficult when you are really tired, and you keep on finding reserves of patience and sympathy for others, which leaves you little energy to apply to your own battles, so it is not surprising that you have not done so well on your diet. Try and remember that you are still almost 31 lbs lighter than when you started, which is fantastic – over two stone (more than your son weighs, lift him up and see!) My slimming leader told me last week (after my second gain on the scales) to hang on in and the weight would shift, and this week it did – 2lbs – the worst thing you can do is dwell on what you see as failure, no one loses all their extra weight without falling off the wagon now and then. Keep going, you will get there, and I know that even if you didn’t lose any more you look fantastic now. Those new jeans are waiting, and you will be in them very soon. I know you will do it.

  5. I’m struggling lately too, I’m expecting a gain tomorrow BUT on the positive it will be my first gain since starting the plan.
    I have no willpower whatsoever when I’m out & can see food, I just need to lock myself up in the house until I’m skinny.
