I think I have done WW 7 times and Slimming World 9 times. That is an awful lot of money over the years. The number of attempts may be higher. I have ALWAYS put the minuscule amount of weight back on plus its friend, because I couldn't carry on with the constant guilt trips because I caved in and had a biscuit, which turned into the whole packet of biscuits.
I have been on anti-depressants because my feelings of failure, due to my weight, spread into the rest of my life. At one point I was on the verge of divorcing my (utterly lovely) husband because I thought he must be a pervert of some kind for actually wanting to have sex with the blob I had become, my self loathing was so extreme.
I became my weight, I was judged, by others, in my own mind on nothing but my weight. I assumed people were being nice to my face then being bitchy behind my back....
I personally feel as though, some kind soul has said, here's the key to bliss. Eat to 100 or 110% of your daily needs, 5 times a week, eat what you want within those guidelines and two days a week restrain yourself. That's it, simples
We may not lose great lumps in one go, but then we don't gain great lumps in one go either. It's slow, it might seem at times non-existent, but it's in the right direction and, please God, it's long lasting ...
Now I just have to stay focused and keep chipping away and reminding myself that I did not put all of this weight on overnight so it is not going to disappear over night! Because often find my will power and determination just do one on me so I need to be my own personal nag and keep checking in on here and calling out for help on the odd occasion as i'm sick of been a statistical yo-yo dieter!!!
This past week has been up and down for me because at the beginning of the week I had birthday meals and drinks over a couple of nights, then a bit of a stomach bug and then the past couple of fast days I have nearly doubled my 500 cals. ...
I am pleased to clear the space in the spare room as I want to put a table in there for my sewing machine. I have several projects in mind but need somewhere away from the cats and dog. I have a yearning to make a patchwork quilt. As it will be my first it will be a simple design but am planning it in blue and white to go in our bedroom. I have lots of ideas of things to make for our home and know that getting stuck into something will keep me out of the cake tin.
OH is boarding the downstairs ceiling of the Gite today which is great. It is coming on well which is a happy thought.
I have eaten too much this week but am planning a fast tomorrow. The quilt will keep me busy and out of the pantry!...
