I went up again on Saturday’s official weigh in. I increased my weight to 225 pounds which is nearly a 2 pound gain. At one time I had lost net 90 pounds. But now I’m at a net 78 pounds lost. This is disheartening, because I worked so hard for those 90 pounds. I know going back and sticking with the program will get me back to a 90 pound loss…and more. I just have to keep in mind that Weight Watchers is not a diet plan. It’s a way of life.
Other than the weight increase, my week has been nuthin’ special. That is such a good thing. No major depression. No mania. I dealt with some stress, but nothing debilitating. It just was what it was and I like it. I am crossing my fingers that it continues through the rest of this week. I really deserve this break.

Hi Brad, I am in the same situation. Was down 60lbs now make to 45lbs. It is frustrating not to mention scary. I don’t want to go backwards. I want to succeed.
We don’t have to go backwards, Margaret, as long as we don’t accept defeat

I’m interested in exploring a new way to motivate myself. I’m such a “stress eater”.
So glad you’re getting a break you deserve, mood wise.
Emotional eating. That’s something I know all too well. I wish I knew what my magic secret was to lose what I did, but I’m having a hard time connecting with that right now. Still keeping the faith, though.
