I warn you now, this is a bit of a venting post. I just needed to get all this down to help put it into prospective.
I’m struggling again with my diet. 2 weeks ago I hit my club 10 goal at Slimming World, which is losing 10% body weight. But I didn’t even have time to blog about it before I got weighed again and had put on. I know why…I ate way too many snacks. And I don’t either eat the continuously through the day… I eat them all in one go in a mini binge!
So I told myself I would get back to it and lose that weight again…but I was away with work for a few days in London and I didn’t have the will power to say no to the ice cream and minstrels given out at the conference and my meals weren’t diet friendly while I was away…but it would have been ok if I could have just stopped there and carried on. But I didn’t. Friday afternoon I felt really deflated at work and I really wanted comfort food so I went straight to the tuck shop…and didn’t just have one chocolate bar or bag of crisps. Then on Friday night when my bf asked if I could have a Friday night treat instead of saying no, I went along to the shop with him and brought a big bag of mini cheddars and a chocolate bar!!
It’s so shameful that I don’t even admit to Paul how much I have eaten…because I know how wrong it is!! I really feel so bored/stressed/down sometimes what I just wanted to scoff my face. I ate loads in a relatively small time frame.
But what annoys me most is how easily I through away the hard work I put in losing the weight. And how silly I am to do that when I can actually lose weight well when I stick to it. I could have reached target weight ages ago if I could just control the little binges I have. I would be perfect healthy and normal to have a snack occasionally as a treat while eating well the rest of the time. But I never seem to have a little treat its loads or nothing for me!!
Does anyone have any tips to handle this? Any tips for not snacking when bored or stressed?
Another weigh in after a super busy week has now passed with another gain. I am sad about this, but it was absolutely no shock. A shame though when I actually did quite a lot of exercise so it probably could have been a great loss!
Since the weight in (2 days ago) I have been doing really well back on plan and have enjoyed just small treats with my syns. I haven’t been too stressed at work which I am sure helped! But I do really need to work out how to stop myself from doing this!
Fingers crossed for a loss this week, and to getting back down to my club 10 target!
