More days gone than I thought since I last blogged!

Finished week 5 of challenge feeling fine, felt very good on Saturday and wrote some rather sanctimonious (??) posts, for which I was paid back in full yesterday with considerable overeating for no apparent reason, except possibly tiredness and horrible weather... Also, I think when my tummy doesn't look or feel bloated, somehow I give myself permission to eat more. Then I swell up like a balloon and feel awful. Is this telling me that I do need to be forever vigilant? Will it ever be possible to manage food intake like someone who has never been overweight??

I would normally fast as an antidote, but have son and g/f coming for lunch. Not sure how I am going to handle this one.

NB I do sleep better with a tummy full of carbs...

Goal reached December 2013, weight loss strategy 5:2, weight management strategy is eating a wide range of (mainly) whole foods but am back to following 5:2 for a while. Main eating challenge is the evening munchies! :razz:
