A little bit about me:
I have had weight and food issues all my life. My mother reports that as a toddler I would mimic eating in my sleep. I remember binge eating from a very young age. I started SW in January 2012 at 18st1.5lbs (not my heaviest). I had some success there, having lost a good 2 stone following the plan, and managing to curb my binge-eating. My binge-eating has been on the rise again over the past month or so, and thankfully the past couple of days I have managed to keep more in control. Another thing I am thankful that tomorrow I actually start a 12 week support group for binge eating! I am really looking forward to it, I have never met anyone who eats like me, so I am so curious to meet everyone. I am a little nervous, but grateful for the opportunity, as I have been on the waiting list for over a year.
A few weeks ago, I started "going it alone" and quit going to group. It just felt like a waste of money! I had already started to yo-yo a bit before I left, but I felt determined. I have been very up and down weight-wise the past few weeks, and this could be for a few reasons. I still feel very determined to get to my goal weight, and I am going to do it. SW is still my plan of choice, I do lots of green days, and some EE. I weigh in at Boots every Saturday with my husband. He is very supportive, he cooks lots of SW meals and never tempts me. He does most of the shopping and also helps me to plan my meals. Its the secret eating I do thats the problem! Well, its secret at the time, but I always confess to him immediately after. He works away 2 nights a week, so those are my real danger times.
Thats part of why I have started using minimins again after a long break
I can't really say what this diary is for, or what will be in it... I figure it will cut down on all the notepads I use to jot down everything, and saving a few trees has to be a good thing, right?
