Yes I no… I never reached my initially set goal.

I adjusted it up 3 lbs after hitting a weight 3lbs above goal and feeling great/not needing to lose more.

The biggest thing was breaking into the “decade” of my goal weight and staying there.

Unfortunately I’m back to square 1 now. But the first few months when I got into the right “decade” I’d be stressing out at every weigh in!

Then I got confident with my weight, then comfortable… then too comfortable and I let it creep back.

First of all, Congrats! I met my goal just a couple weeks before my wedding!

I would suggest drinking tons of water and just sticking to the plan without changing anything. You could put your body into shock and it could stop losing weight all together! Is it possible the bloat is coming from PMS?

I reached goal but honestly, I didn’t have any anxiety over the last few pounds. I just kept at it. You have to remember, this is a lifestyle change. You have to keep it up even after you hit goal. And maintenance can sometimes be harder than the losing part.  It’s not going to be over just because you make it to your goal weight. And once you make it there, you may find it’s too difficult a number to stick with.

After a couple of years, I accepted that 5 lbs over goal was still ok with me. And it didn’t take too much restriction to stay there.

Just keep following the plan, exercise, and you’ll get there eventually.

@MandaMack: Haha, I do the same thing…Try not to freak out too much, just be proud of your accomplishment!

 

Perhaps too much water then, consistency is key! Since my wedding 6 weeks ago I’ve put back on 5 lbs… Eeeek.. After the honeymoon it was 3 lbs and after Thanksgiving I gained another 2, hop to get it back under control before Christmas sneaks up!

@MandaMack: I thought for sure I was going to gain at least 10lbs on our 7 day trip to Punta Cana, came home and weighed in only 3lbs more, I was like, ok… Is the scale broken?

I just made sure to eat small portions and drink a ton of water, plus we walked on the beach every morning at least 2 miles so that helped also!

I know what you mean about feeling anxiety and starting to obsess over it.  When I get that way, which happens every few weeks, I remind myself that doing WW is just a part of my life, and not the whole thing.  I change my focus to other things.  Maybe go out for the day shopping, or work on a project.  Obviously, stick with the plan, and keep working out, but try to make those pieces just a part of your routine instead of your whole life.

You have done a great job and I totally know what you are going through!  Just try to remember that you are more than the number on the scale and that the important thing is that you are getting healthy and continuing on your journey.

I totally get the freaking out/obsessed feeling! I am soooooo close to losing 10lbs and it can’t seem to get here!
