View each pound you lose as a single step - one step closer towards your goal. Even if some steps are over rugged rock, and some steps are on smooth sand; each step takes you forward. So don't get frustrated, just take that next step and congratulate yourself each time you do.
Perseverance is key to weight loss. Even when you are feeling rubbish, it is vital to continue to make the right food choices.
Being a woman, how I feel each day depends on where I am in my monthly cycle. I think most women out there would agree. Fluid retention each month drives me bonkers as it makes me feel heavy, sluggish and a 'what's the point' attitude to everything where food is concerned. No matter what you do when you try to lose weight, nothing seems to be making me feel better. It takes two days for my body to sync into motivation whenever I have a blip, and over the last few days it has proved to me that it is vital to keep going, regardless of how fat or thin you may feel on any given day.
I have come back onto the wagon after three weeks of days where I have started brightly and ended on a negative attitude towards the plan - often without intention. This week however, I have given myself a chance and basically stopped worrying, and let food take a back seat in my life. Boy, what a difference a change of attitude has made to my outlook on life.
So the message this time folks is, DON'T GIVE UP! See you next time :o) xxx
Such a struggle again this weekend. For the last three weeks, like a lot of people, I feel that I have lost that spark and the point of it all. To help me along I am going to post my daily tracker on my Facebook group every day from today to try and reel myself in. I feel angry with myself, I have let myself down, and yet again I am fighting to get out of another hole at the side of the road. I hate this :(
I would appreciate if my followers would offer some insight into how they crack that feeling of being stuck in a rut, and in a few weeks I will compile the best ones into a page on this site.

Oh wow. What a struggle these past two weeks have been.
Ladies, you can appreciate what I'm talking about today on my blog, and that is the nightmare that comes with fluid retention and the dreaded 'monthly visit'. This week was carb city in my house with cravings galore. As a result of this, my body ballooned beyond my control and I could not do a thing about it. Cue a 2.5lbs weight gain at the scales this week and a not very happy Siani to boot.
It has always been a loss to me why we have to suffer each month, undoing the hard work of a saintly couple of weeks. I dread the hunger and the weight gain each month. I would love to hear from other WW members as to how they cope with the monthly curse, and how they get back on the wagon afterwards. Comment below :)
