Not only have I fallen off the wagon , if it hadn't run away - I'd probably have eaten the horse 😳

Good evening. I have had a really rubbish day and have really let myself down.πŸ˜”

The cooler weather, time of the month, worrying about my mum, stressful day at work, feeling sorry for myself, feeling tired and generally fed up with the world, has thrust me back into emotional eating - biscuits at work, piece of cake, fish and chips, sausage sandwich on WHITE BREAD πŸ˜”

I now feel disappointed, uncomfortably full and absolutely shattered! Only good thing to have come out of it, is I feel so awful that I won't be doing it again in a hurry!!! Back on track tomorrow, have come to bed to ensure that I don't eat anything else!

I know that nothing from my list of stresses will miraculously disappear overnight, but the one thing I can change, is getting back in control with the one thing I can control...what goes in my mouth😞

Sorry for the moan, I don't do it often, but when I do, I really do xxx

  • Moan away, ive just been whinging aswell lol. Its kind of nice to feel like im not the only one who has bad days/ weeks with this. X

  • I know how you feel! Iv just been way too stressed lately and piling on the pounds! But like you said I feel terrible about it so hopefully thats a good sign!

  • I'm planning on it only being one day - it'll take at least 3 to put right, but it is now over 😌. As you say, if we didn't care, we wouldn't feel bad xxx

  • I think you should be kinder to yourself. it sounds like you're going through a difficult time so it's no wonder you're stressed and seeking comfort in food. but one day isn't going to throw you off track forever. maybe try and focus on other things that make you feel good? like, having a bath, watching your favourite film, crafting (if you are the crafty type) - if exercise makes you feel good do that as well. take care x

  • Thank you LinaLamont. You are right, 1 day can't ruin everything. Back to it tomorrow. 😊 I struggle when I am knocked off balance, but can deal with most things individually, even some when they come together, but today I was overwhelmed πŸ˜”. A good nights sleep and things should look better or at least I'll feel better equipped to deal with them x

  • just draw a line under today and move on... I'm exactly the same btw, I generally find life overwhelming quite a lot of the time. often that manifests itself in emotional eating, sometimes I indulge myself with food but I also like to do other things to look after myself. I just try to focus on things that make me feel better about life. good luck :) x

  • New day tomorrow πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘ think positive and dig deep....πŸ™ƒ

  • Thank you June1965 - my spade is at the ready xxx

  • Try to remember how uncomfortable you feel and use that to help you next time you get the urge to overeat.

    Remember, everyone has bad days, it's getting back on track that leads to long term success 😊

    Good luck 😊

  • Today is a fresh new day. Hope it is a good one for you!!! x

  • Thank you xx feeling more positive today so let's bring it on πŸ™ƒ

  • Thank you to everyone who responded to my post. I stepped on the scales this morning with trepidation and was relieved to see only a pound gain ( was expecting 3 at least!) My loyalty to the dieting gods has finally paid off and they've been kind to me.

    Today is a brand new day, yesterday is gone. Back to it - breakfast eaten, lunch prepared, tea planned, doggy walk to be done and bring on the day 😊

    Have a great day everyone xxxx

  • Hope you have a fab day x

  • You too xxx

  • So glad you're feeling better today and your positivity has inspired me! I've had a couple of bad days too, but here's to getting back on track to feeling good! πŸ˜ƒ Hope you have a great day x

  • Dont beat yourself up about this , I had a very bad eating week last week & put on a kg but rather than just giving up , this time I just drew a line under last week & started all over again.

    Good luck & as Dory 🐠 says , just keep swimming
