SoD rides again

Okaaayyyy, so if you've read any of my blither over the last week, you can't have failed to have noticed my sterling efforts on the lard-sheddage front. As recently as yesterday I confirmed another cycle commute and my adherence to points over the weekend (always a challenge). So why, WHY does the henious villain SoD tell me that I have put ON 1lb this week? I am mystified - and not a little wounded. I'm also going to buy new scales. I don't believe it, it isn't possible and yet - as anyone who has ever been in a similar situation probably knows only too well - I am downcast and rather fed up. I feel cheated of the reward for my efforts than I hang in there for. I feel like a chocolate binge or rage-eating my way out of my disappointment. I won't, but I'm not sure exactly how I am going to shake myself out of my gloom.

I did eat too much sugar yesterday. I don't believe that has anything to do with my weight gain as the whole flipping point of WW is that you can eat your points any which way. But I had a 6.5 point sugar feast - a Chomp (2), a tube of Lovehearts (1.5) and a Big Purple One (3). This was partly as the soup I'd made for lunch came out as a paltry 1 point and I wanted to eat my full points. Still, I need to find more nutritious ways of making points on the rare occasion that I have a point mountain to munch through (I think this is the second time!). I won't be making that soup again anyway - roasted aubergine and chickpea (okay but not great). Tonight I'll be making chicken vegetable soup for the next three lunches (chicken, leek, carrot, celery, mushroom, sweetcorn and leftover chickpeas) - still low point but it needs to be more than 1.

I'm off to sulk somewhere less annoying for everyone else. Hope everyone else is having a better day!

Gah! There is nothing worse than the scales being mean. I know it sounds trite but I think everything tends to come out in the wash in the end - so any efforts that haven't been rewarded this week will show up sooner or later, but it is rubbish all the same.

Don't fret, and try not to drown your misery in chocolate! Cook some lovely mussels instead....

SoD owes you a loss and it IS coming, it just didn't show up today. don't sweat it, shake it off and move on. You'll see it next time you hop on Sod. Too bad we can't weigh in with cleats on -- might intimidate the monster into cooperating.

I hear you on this one, Peridot. I busted my butt on the 30 Day Shred, hoping for spectacular loss. After exercising intensely everyday for 30 days, I lost no pounds. None.

That being said, my shape has changed and I feel tighter/firmer.

But the scale? Did. Not. Budge. It makes no sense. Perhaps you, Beth, and I can all toss our scales into the trash at the same time???
