Snacks, snacks and more snacks!

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! :)

    I am the same ….snacking is hard ..that’s why I have a constant supply of fresh healthy but yummy things to hand ….I don’t think snacking is an ctual problem just got to snack on “good” things nd eave the treats for when you’ve already eaten properly …means our more likely to eat less of them :) …good luck… Sounds like you’re doing fab anyhoo …..try not to be too hard on yourself xxx

    Snacking is the hardest part about trying to diet! Especially if you’re not particularly active, there are times when I can be out, very busy and won’t feel the need to eat, but then other times when i’m sat doing nothing and suddenly I crave food! Just find some healthy alternative snacks, some mixed seeds/fruit or health bars! Other options out there!

      I am always prepared with healthy snacks, especially when I am actively on my diet. My issue is that I would eat the healthy snacks but then still really want to eat the bad stuff and have that as well lol! overall I am happy with my weight loss, sometimes it is slow but at least for the time being it is going in the right direction :) and I am being more active the last few weeks too!
