This isn't a post, it's a wail of anguish.

Freaky Bridesmaid Diet/ Week Two:- GAIN 1kg

I suspected something was up on Sunday, I didn't feel like I did this time last week. So I did a quick weigh even though official weigh day is Monday.  So I stepped on and it read my weight of last week (no change). I was burnt. So shocked and so hurt and astonished.

I was surprised because on Friday my dress (friends wedding next week) had to be altered and according to the tailor I had lost an inch on my bust, and hips and 1/2 inch on my waist. I was so happy.

Now this.

So yesterday I was bummed out but to my great astonishment I also started crying. I couldn't stop! I cried in the shower and while getting dressed and finally got a grip and told myself to calm down. I ended up flat on the floor in the sitting room watching movies without being aware of what exactly I was watching.

So by the time this morning rolled around and I did my official weighing I was too exhausted to shout because of all I had cried yesterday. My Mum said I'm bloated because my period is next week but me I don't agree. In fact I don't know. I might have to increase my exercise even thought I'm working late this week.

Na wa oh! This means so much to me and I can't take failure of any kind. I'm not giving up or slacking or quitting. Nope! But I'm sad, there is no other word for it.

    Don't let it weigh you down, in fact let it aggrivate you.


    Don't stop what you were doing.
    Just stay focused.

    Ndo! Just hang in there, keep working on it. You'll get there.
    Try not to put undue pressure on yourself though (e.g fitting into the dress) Take your time.

    All the best.

    Your mum is right! Dont torture yourself.

    As soon as I read the first few lines, it occurred to me that its probably some hormonal thing.

    it'll go away. you'll see. Just dont kill yourself over it.

    It doesnt always work like that babes.

    This weight loss thing is tricky.
    The first few weeks you usually gain muscle mass as u burn up fat and ur progress doesnt show up on the scale.

    Even a trainer will tell you to stay away from the scale for the first few weeks.

    Dont judge ur progress by the amount on ur scale, judge it by how your clothes fit.

    its a hard road but dont let it get u down to the point of bawling like that.
    There are better things to use ur tears on babes.

    Im sending you a huge cyber hug .
    Heads up!!!

    Plus ur moms might be right too.
    Women usu get bloated due to water retention just before their periods.

    Awwww, just take it easy on yourself. When I started losing weight, I found out that even though people tell me I look smaller, sometimes the scales disappoint. You just have to keep doing the right thing and the results will follow. How soon is the wedding though?

    If its any consolation, Mancee is sooo sure he'd still love you no matter ur KG.
    But if it makes you happy...keep at it. losing 0.5Kg per week is the recommended 'healthy' thing. No more.

    Ps: I believe you know caramel-ly thingys dont exactly help, shay?

  13. Freaksho Says:

    now i hate to be such a MAN about this, but really? CRYING? no no no this will not do!
    you are beautiful anyway you are, Caramel, and that day will come, you'll put on that dress and knock everyone's eyes out.
    this is nothing to worry me.

    dry your tears...carameld honey if you have four weeks to go…consider changing and try the food doctor everyday diet…you will drop the weight if you don’t cheat and u will do it healthy with complex carbs. u can find the book on this link:

    if you want a heads up on what it entails see my post

    Only thing I will add is don’t break the 'no caffine' or 'no sugar' or the exercise rules, plus I would advise that u stick with real fruit juice you make fresh yourself and not the stuff in the cartons

    Good luck sweetie...believe u aint gonna fail and u wont :-)

    i understand what you are going through. sometimes losing weight can be such a big challenge, but dont let it weigh you down to the point of tears...just always remember you are beautiful irrespective of your size, so though you want a smaller size, dont be bitter about your current stay focused on your exercise...dont overdo it though and watch your diet...dont starve just reduce the sure u would be fine

    One step at a time sweet sis...

    Is often like that with weight lose and scales.. It will be off and on but when you keep at it.

    You know wat? Ditch the scale for now and put ur effort in the prog and you will see the clear difference. But the bottom line is..Just be yourself and be happy..That's all that matters. Much luv

    I love the fact that you're not quitting on this.
    If you keep at it. As in Keep at it, it will pay off eventually.
