Actions have concequences - Dealing with regain

Sunday, September 11, 2011

So with the end of the summer vacation and feeling joyous with a new boyfriend, I have been socialising alot. I seem to have developed a taste for beer, and with inebreation comes eating whatever I want.

So according the the scales I have regained 8kgs (17.6lbs) in 3 weeks. Yeah it was a shock but I needed to face up to what doing to excess was going to do. Although it may not be as bad as that because to regain that much I`d have to have eaten 61600 over in 3 weeks, but I`ve definetly backtracked and all that effort and progress over the summer has been lost.

I seem to be still dealing with my all or nothing mentality, it`s either binging or being obsessively strict with myself. I guess that`s to be expected with how many issues I`ve had with food for years but I guess part of this journey is dealing with that.

I need to find a balance in life and with food. I can have a few beers, but if I`m going to do that I`ve got to be cafeful that day. I know what to do, and if I don`t do it I know where that ends up.

So the theme for this month is going to be balance and consistency.

Never going to give up tho no matter how many times I slip!!!

    I'm a bit like you in that when I'm good I'm very very good but when I'm bad I 'm horrid! You can get back on track and you will.It would be such a shame to to undo all the hard work you've put in and all you've gained from it.Get obsessive and get strict and off you go.On the upside you'll probably find that the break from the diet has boosted your metabolism and it shouldn't take very long for it to come off agai.After all,it hasn't been on for very long.I believe in you. emoticon

    I feel ya. I had a great week and then suddenly started eating uninhibited amounts of food, with less exercise.

    Way to go girl! I hear determination balanced with reality in your voice. You can do it... it's just a detour, not a stop sign. Good for you for never giving up. Keep sparkin'!
