Hi all, if you take the time to read this I really do appreciate it!
By the end of the Summer just gone, I had lost nearly three stone in weight, completed couch to 5K and ate extremely healthily (having the odd cheat day here and there of course!)
I went to university but in the end decided it was not for me and due to personal circumstances, am currently living in my grandparents house along with my mum. Whilst a uni I kept up the exercise and healthy eating and my weight kept near about the same, which I was super happy with. However, due to many problems at home, lack of motivation and still job hunting, I am struggling. My mum and I buy our own food (which is healthy!) yet my grandparents are feeders and the temptation is always too much for me. Before we never had unhealthy things like biscuits, crisps or cereal in the cupboards but knowing it's there and available, I get cravings and cannot stop them. I have only put on about five or six pounds but I do not want to gain all the weight back! I manage a day or two back to counting calories and eating the right food but then I want a huge bowl or cornflakes or some hobnobs and then think why bother stopping now? I have registered for a 10K, 10 miler, tough mudder and the great north run next year, so I am still running whenever I can. It's just the eating and making myself move move during the day. I have tried to read things about the amount of sugar etc in certain foods to put myself off, but it's not working and I cannot stop. I'm not sure what to do, because I am so happy and proud of what I achieved and cannot let myself slip now. I also know I was obsessive counting calories before, and I really want to stop as soon as I get back to my 'perfect' weight.
One very stuck Hannah.
