I haven't posted much on here recently, I haven't weighed in on a Monday, written any posts or replied to anyone else's and the reason is I'm ashamed. I joined this site a few months ago, determined I was going to turn my life around, I'm a scientist, I've done the research, I know the theory. I know what I need to eat to get all my nutrients, I know what my daily calorie intake should be, I know what not to buy and the exercises that work the best. But I've failed. Since I signed up to this site all I've done is put on weight. Exercise isn't the problem, I work out 4 times a week and love it, always have done, I've never stopped being active whatever my size, plus I walk to walk to work every day. I know that what I eat contributes significantly more to weight loss than exercise.
But for some reason I can't seem to break old habits. and every-time I slip up I think, OK, well nothing I can do about that now but I'll start again next meal. and then the same thing happens next time and nothing changes.
And I know what people are going to say, don't have tempting foods in the house, well I don't but that doesn't help when there's a Tesco 30 seconds from my house. It's not much further than my kitchen!
I guess I'm just wondering if other people have gone through this at the start, or any point in their journey, and what got them through it.
