Hi there all! I haven't posted on here for sometime now (prob more than 6 months). I got to my goal and then things went very wrong for me and my family after a bereavement. For a while there was no difference and for a while I lost too much weight from IBS brought on by stress but since Christmas I have kind of reverted back to my old 'eating for the sake of it' ways. I realise that I am searching for comfort in food and I don't want to get back into that habit but I am having trouble getting back on 'the horse'. I decided to 'bite the bullet' & get back on the scales a fortnight ago (I'd also gotten out of the habit of getting on the scales regularly as burying my head in the sand. Anyway I wasn't all that surprised to see I had put in a stone. I had a week of keeping to my calories and lost half of that but then reverted back last week after being off work but really busy, so it was takeaway week. I have things on in the next couple of months so I want to get back on it a) because I feel unwell with it all and not happy b) been suffering with my back and knee pain again c) my clothes r getting a bit snugger!
It's like I am punishing myself again even tho I don't want to. Like I say it is no excuse but the last few months have been very hard and I am struggling to straighten myself out! I've been trying to b strong for everyone else and half heartedly thinking about myself! I also got a new job within this period which I desparately needed but again it was just another thing to be dealing with as lots to learn! Hence why I am here. .I figured if I write it all down to c, it will give me the kick up the backside I need! 😂 Sorry for the long rant!
