Half a lb is nothing given a weekend away. There are people at my group have gained 6lb in a week, so e proud you didn't go all out and are limiting the damage.

Good luck for tomorrow all

Not expecting a loss as home scales are rock solid stuck.. I know I should bin them - hard habit to break.

You never know Purple; you migh have lost some overnight.

I know what you mean about the scales though; I used to be constantly on them (every time I went into the bathroom!), I have got better though and now I'll only weigh myself at home on weigh in day, just so I'm mentally prepared and can accept any gains during the walk up to class.

Good luck to everyone who's weighing today/this evening too!

Thanks It did move this morning so hoping.... lol

I must try this week not to weigh I think, I only weigh in the morning on waking but it's getting to me and last week I expected a loss then was disappointed when it didn't show on the SW scales.

Hey everyone! It's been a couple of weeks since I posted!

Well, it's 2.40am here in Japan, and yesterday (the 6th) was my birthday! Was naughty and went for a yummy burger :P

I feel like I've settled into Japan really well. My diet hasn't been the best, I've been trying lots of new foods and sometimes having more junk than I should have. That said, I haven't been completely going off the rails. There happened to be a pair of scales in the common room here, I weighed myself on Monday and was a little under 11 stone 2.5lbs. Given my lowest in the UK was 10 stone 12lbs, I'm completely fine with this as that gain is one over about 5 weeks.

I'm gradually eating a little better as I tried a lot of the chocolates and stuff when I first got here with it all being new to me. I might gain next week, but for four out of the next five days, I have nothing on which means I'll be surrounded by junk food.

I'd like to lose a few more pounds as when I weighed myself recently I was more like 11 stone 5lbs, which is higher than I thought. So I'd at least like to lose a few more without feeling worried about getting closer to 12 stone than 11.

It's quite hard getting into the mentality of not actually losing weight as it's what I wanted so badly for a year. But at the same time, I'm not obsessing over the foods I'm eating and how many syns over I am and worrying about a gain. I can still stick to the principles of Slimming World when cooking my own meals, but staying perfectly on plan is just too hard right now and doing so would make me obsess, I think.

Hi Matt! *waves*
So great to read you're doing so well and being true to your lifestyle of travelling and being in a new country, it would be rude not to try new foods. I'm sure you'll find a balance with some practice. I know a woman at my group is learning how to maintain so is bouncing up and down a bit around the maintenance allowance. You've done so well and are clearly still thinking about your weight and making the right choices. Well done

WELL - I'm thrilled to say I got my 2 stone award tonight! 2lb lost and 3lb to my interim target of 15 stone. Really hope I can see a loss next week too - to try and balance things out better than last month which was a bit of a yo-yo month. Feels amazing to be close to the 14 stone range again too I must admit. Next goals in sight! lol

Nice to hear youre settling in well, Matt. Enjoy this opportunity; the food part you'll get your head round in a few weeks

Well done, Purple! See... Your scales lied; chuck them away! You must be over the moon!

I lost 1lb tonight taking me below target by half a pound. My target has now been reset at 9st 10lbs and it feels quite scary, yet exciting, that it's there, written down, in my book as my final target. It'll take me to 4 and a half stone lost when I get there (I still have 20 months before my 30th and that's when I aimed to be at target for.) I know in my mind at I kept changing my target, when I originally started it was going to be 10st but I want to see those 9s as an adult and I want to be able to stay in a healthy weight range when the husband and I decide to have another baby. Anyways, to cut a long story short; I walked home smiling.
