I have put on a quarter of a pound this week but I'm not surprised.
I haven't been able to exercise at all because of my Knee which always has a huge impact on whether I lose weight or it. Also it's the school holidays so this has meant eating out a bit more in McDonalds and Wagamamas. I have tried to choose healthy options but I think it still has an impact. The final factor has been that my hormones are clearly all over the place this week; I feel bloated and yucky which usually means I'm retaining water.
So although it's Disappointing to Gain weight, it really is the smallest amount and that's life! Things will turn up as obstacles and it won't always be easy. All you can do is regroup and keep going as the nex week will probably be different.
I do expect the next week to be better for me as my knee is clearly on the mend so I will start exercising from Monday when my daughter returns to school. I've also started working on giving my diet a complete overhaul but I had to wait for payday to go shopping and carry this out! Hopefully my hormones will settle down again next week too!
My advice is never get disheartened if you have a disappointing week. See it as just a bump in the road on your weight loss journey. Just get past it, gather yourself together and refocus. That's the philosophy I try to stick to. Speak to you soon
