Hi folks, I guess that many people can relate to this but there is a definite link between my mood and the food that I eat, particularly when I'm not watching what I'm eating. When I change my eating habits and start a healthy eating plan it's a struggle with myself for a week or two to beat those feelings of wanting to eat rubbish. It's like taming a sugar craving lion. Getting through those first couple of weeks though and those feelings subside and I get really into eating healthily and I know that I'm fully in control. Positive mind and a strong willpower. Eating rubbish and piling on the pounds has got me to the lowest point in my life . The amount of times where I've been disgusted with myself and decided to 'start on Monday' then Monday never comes. I remember how good I felt when I have successfully lost huge amounts of weight in the past. I was confident, I was happy with myself and I enjoyed interacting with people. Depression has set me back for the last few years and made me withdraw from everything that I previously enjoyed, but I'm ready to start battling back. I'm not getting any younger and I certainly don't want to embarrass my daughter at her wedding next year. It's been a good first week so far. Long may it continue.
