I have been trying to master having three sensible meals a day (recovering binge eater) and allowing myself little treats if I want them. More to the point that if I feel like having chocolate I'll have one or two truffles and have been doing really well at walking away and not coming back for more. Previously I would sit and eat the whole packet/bar and buy more the same day.
I have had a few small slip ups (an extra piece of bread, veggie pasta for lunch when I planned a salad) but over all I've been quite happy.
However, my 2-3 week glitch has come back. This happens all the time when I try and kick start sensible eating or previous diets- I notice improvement through how I feel or how my clothes fit and then reward myself with food and slack on the being sensible and focusing on being more healthy- ie: only having two chocolates.
Tonight I had a 'treat/cheat meal' as some friends came round for a movie night. I had half a garlic bread pizza, 2 doughnuts and a fair amount of ice cream. Followed by 6 chocolate truffles when everyone had left.
I am struggling to feel motivated about staying on track and I know that weight loss takes a while to show (I have another 6-8kg to loose) but was wondering if anyone had any tips or advice on how they stay motivated when they feel like giving up.
Thank you for your help/advice
