Cheated - worst week ever

Saturday, November 03, 2012

I am about to leave the house but I needed to write something before I do.

Last night I cheated on my diet for the first time in 6 months.
I ate: two pieces of chocolate , Fruit paste, white bread and honey and a sultana cake 2 pieces and loads of fruit and dinner.

So now I am desperate ...
I am not giving up I just dread this week's weigh in....

THis week has been the worst, especially as I am closer to my goal.
My doctor says I am losing less because I have less fat to lose.
I have difficulty believing him.

Is he telling the truth to calm me down?

What should I do?

Apologies spark for being so negative lately but I am having trouble.
I welcome all comments
thank you in advance

    One would think it would be easier the closer you are to your goal wait, but it's true...with a good plan and consistency the weight comes off faster the heavier you are...but don't stress over it. Be proud of all the hard work you have put in and the results you have achieve and tweak your plan accordingly...the body will respond in kind. The power is in YOU to make it happen. Go for it! emoticon emoticon

    I am so grateful for your advices. The day after I cheated I got back to my healthy habits. Did not skip any meals because apparently it tricks your body to store far the next time you eat. But I ate light: a salad, fruits and light Greek yoghurt. A lot of tea. I also walked all day sightseeing. I am not giving up on this. Thanks for all your encouragement. About the slow weightloss, I am starting to believe that it is true my body is hanging on to some of the fat. But realistically I still have 6kg to go. Anyway I tried everything new exercise routine, new food types (simple and healthy and eating less more often) hoping to kick start the weightloss again but no result for now. I will keep up my efforts and stay patient. Many thanks again this really helps. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think your doctor is right, your weight loss will slow down as you get closer to your goal. Just keep pushing forward.....Don't be so hard on yourself, we all have days when we may lose focus, tomorrow is a new day to make healthier choices that will bring you closer to your goal emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I think he's right, you lose faster when you are heavier and slower later because you have built up some muscle weight.

    emoticon Don't beat yourself up. Admit your slip and just move on. I myself am ALWAYS messing up - I know it when I do it and it can be hard to get past those slips but we all know either we will get over it or not. Again, don't beat yourself up - victory can be right around the corner. How BAD do you want it? Only you know - just don't give up.

    Two week ago I went out for dinner and over eat. I lost .5 kilos, so don't worry about once just don't do it for a while

    My sister lost 105 pounds by walking 15000 steps a day at age 63. I lost 44 pounds by giving up grain products at age 63
