Rubbish weekend but not the end of the world

I've had a very strange weekend regarding my relationship with food - after being immaculately accurate with all my weighing and measuring since September I decided SOD IT! on Saturday and weighed nothing and ate rubbish for part of the time, then yesterday again I deliberately weighed nothing as if I was sticking the proverbial finger up at the plan.

Today is my last day in a job I've had for the past 10.5 years and have been trying to find the escape ladder from for at least the last two years because of some serious unpleasantness from my senior reports - in fact should I have felt so inclined I would have had a good case for constructive dismissal - however for my own health and sanity I have decided to take the moral high ground and move on.

I will start a new role in a completely different sector/environment next Monday and I think the psychological upheaval of all this was definitely playing on my mind to distract me from the plan

However today I got up full of the joys of Spring, weighed myself to find I'd done no damage as I'm still the same as Thursday's official weigh in and I'm back on it again

This just serves as a reminder to me that I can occasionally loosen my belt for whatever reason and not suffer too much

Keep going everyone - poop happens in life but we are all better than that and can do the best for ourselves
