    Thanks, ladies!

    I certainly hope I'm in the right place. I've been slim several times in my adult life but never had the knowledge and tools to stay there; really hope that this time I do!

    I think one of the reassuring things has been how well I've behaved during breaks. As long as I kept some rules in place - and I think I will always need those - I've been able to enjoy myself without going bonkers and eating everything in sight, and that's a real breakthrough for me as a borderline binger. I've discovered that provided I avoid my true binge triggers (wheat products mainly) a little of what I fancy really does do me good, and that I can stop at a little. Who knew? lol

    The scales are my friend this morning, btw: 153.6lbs...I am in the 10's! I won't make it official (change my ticker/stats) unless it becomes a whole pound, but it sure was nice to see!

    Today's food isn't planned for once ...kinda playing it by ear. I do know that our main meal will be leftover roast beef turned into cottage pie with cheesy potato and cauli mash, but beyond that it's a mystery, lol. I don't normally wing it, so this could be interesting...

    Weighed in at just under 153lbs this morning, so I am finally officially in the 10's...hallelujah!

    I hit 12 stone back in early October, so this has been a very slow crawl to get here. I think what helped me latterly was changing my mindset at the beginning of December from "I must lose weight!" to "I'm okay at this weight - let's just see what happens". It stopped me fretting about the weeks when the scale doesn't move - or goes up! - and just allowed me to concentrate on eating right. Dieting is one big mindgame, isn't it?

    Oh, well done on the 10s. I really admire your way of thinking re weight loss. It really should be about how we can eat for the rest of our life as we near our goal, so many people think, well when I get to goal I can eat xyz, but if we do that the weight just comes back on. I hope I get to your mindset sometime.

    Thanks folks!

    And with that, I have a food crime to report!

    Went into town today with OH and was waylaid by a muffin, a real, normal muffin I can't pretend it was built into today's plan - wasn't intending to have any kind of break - so it will have to go down as an "oops".

    Oops.

    I'm not changing anything else because of it, so today's carbs are going to be way over at a whopping 120g. Will be interesting to see if there is any effect on the scales tomorrow!

    I don't feel bad about it by the way - not beating myself up or any of that nonsense. It's done, and I won't be doing it again in a hurry - it was nice, but not OMG!AMAZING!!! or anything, so I won't be particularly tempted. Plus, it didn't trigger a binge on anything else; I made sure to have a nice big hit of protein and fat (turkey with mayo) straight afterwards to steady the ship, and I feel fine. I may gain a bit of temporary water weight from it, but that will be all.

    Onwards and downwards, eh...

    The near-maintenance stage you're at I don't think a muffin is anything to call the food police over welcome to the 10s! Considering Xmas and new years have been right in the middle, I don't think your loss has been too slow. 1 stone in about 3 months rather than the 2 it might have been when you had much more to lose.
    dieting is hard. being overweight is hard. choose your hard.

    Well, my stay in the 10's didn't last long - I'm back to being a shade over 11.

    And the significant thing is that I'm almost exactly the same as I was this time last month, so it would appear that I have finally found my maintenance weight for this level of eating. At my lowest point in the month I'll dip into the 10's, but basically, I'm 11 stone.

    So I think that's it for me. If I wanted to lose more I would have to either:

    - eat less (cals and/or carbs), which isn't an option because I'm happy with what I'm eating

    or

    - move more, which may happen I suppose, but I know from a lifetime of experience that I will NEVER be consistent with exercise, so I cannot rely on it to keep my weight at a constant lower level.

    So my aim from this point is to stay at or near 11 stone and to be happy with that. It's more than I wanted to be, but I have to be realistic. I'm going to have to finally accept that I will never be stick thin and that that's okay. I don't look hideous in clothes, and I can move - that will do

    Now let's see if I can do the really hard part: not put it back on again

    Well done on finding your maintenance weight and being realistic about it. I need to re-evaluate too.

    Well done hun - that sounds really sensible to me - and I have to say, 11 stone sounds pretty slim to me

    I think it's very sensible too - and nothing has to be forever, if you decide you want to cut back again later in the year the option is always there. I think time of year can make a big difference to mindset.
    dieting is hard. being overweight is hard. choose your hard.

    Goodness! 4 days since I last posted in here...I am getting to be a very lazy diarist

    This time of year definitely gets to me. My best period for losing weight naturally ie, when I'm not really trying, has always been from about June to November. Post Xmas until late spring is traditionally when I pile it back on again, unless, like last year, I happen to be in the early stages of a diet - that changes the game, obviously.

    I think of it as my "late-winter blues", and I know that I'm always going to have be careful around about now, or things could very easily slide :/ As it is, even though I still have the residual focus from a year of dieting, my carbs have gone up over 100g a day quite a few times this past couple of weeks, and my calories are creeping up too, so heaven knows what might be happening if I weren't still in "diet mode". Could well be eating my own weight in ice cream and cake by now

    Longer days and warmer weather will sort me out, I know, but until they arrive, I'll just have to hang on in there as best I can, negotiating 3 family birthdays AND Easter into the bargain...yikes! (and I wonder why I gain weight at this time of year, lol! if I go missing you'll probably find me face down in a trough of birthday cake and Easter eggs )

    I think late April will be the earliest I'll reassess my weight situation. If I've managed to maintain reasonably comfortably, I'll probably lower my target another half stone; if I've struggled, I'll stick at 11 stone and convince myself I'm happy (shouldn't be too hard if I think back to what I was a year ago - I would have killed to be 12 stone then, let alone 11! Funny how your perceptions change as you lose the weight - we're never happy, are we?!)
