I don't understand what it is about the 50lb milestone that I find so very difficult to get past. Both earlier this year and now I seem to bounce around it as if it is some sort of weird WW lodestar. And from chatting to some others on the WW UK messageboards it doesn't seem to be all that uncommon to get a bit stuck at the big 5-0.
One (very sensible) lady (who lost around eight stone to get to goal) said that she found her motivation waned when she began to look more "socially acceptable" and I sort of know what she means. Although still demonstrably Weeble like I am significantly less Weeble like than I was this time last year. But still too Weeble like for anyone's aesthetic comfort.
Perhaps it is just unfortunate timing and I need to grit my teeth and keep on going. I always knew that I would have a difficult few weeks (diet wise) mid to late October what with a long weekend in London just gone and then D's birthday trip to Edinburgh which will be in little over a week. November is looking much quieter socially so will be an ideal time to knuckle down and really push past this 50lb barrier. And I have no excuse to not get a decent loss under my belt over the next seven days.
