So, in the first week of joining here I lost 4lbs and visited the site frequently and spent a lot (probably too much) reading lots of entries which really motivated me. Then I went on a conference and was trying so hard to be sensible, no snacks etc. and marvelling at how well I was doing without crips and choc and feeling generally less 'icky'. Since being back, I have not watched my cals as I knew I was going to be over for the day by about 8am and for some reason I gave myself licence to eat LOTS of cheese sandwiches and nibbles and I feel awful - permanently greasy in my mouth. I tentatively weighed myself only to find that in 2 weeks I have put that 4lb back on. Gutted. Not surprised, and should probably be grateful it wasn't more, but gutted non the less. Now I am really struggling to find the motivation to do it despite starting every day thinking 'this is the day'..... Hols in about 6 weeks, back in Dec I was hoping to be 2st lighter by this point. Has even put me off going to a reunion for somewhere I used to work as I would need to severly cut calories and just can't face that. Whinge over, must pick myself up and get on with it, just needed to vent in the hope it kick starts me!
