    Having another go...

    I had a bit of a meltdown a few months ago (finding out my jobs were likely to both end in the next few months) and came right off the diet, I have been comfort eating and found myself (almost) beack where I started.

    I'm back to it as of today and hoping to be able to stick at it this time... at least I know what's coming in my life and I think I'm better able to deal with it without resorting to high fat foods!

    I'm eaing into it... 8 syns so far today and not even had dinner but I WILL get there... Last diet time around, the support on here was invaluable - I wish I'd comeback here rather than dropping off the scene altogether.

    As you'll see with my status, I've fallen off track royally, this is my end week back on plan and I'm looking for people to follow and people to follow me. How about it?

    11/04/14 - Weighed myself and was in shock by the number... the number isn't a huge deal but I feel bigger, my coats tight, I'm slowly fitting into the oversized work trousers I have which isn't a good sign as I'm obviously too big for the other ones I have now, including the shirt which looks stretched around the bust area. I'm struggling with sleeping, or sleeping too much, out of breath at running up the stairs and my double chin is reappearing. My chest seems bigger which means my bras are hurting or breaking. I feel insecure about the way I look at work and don't like catching myself in the mirrors or window reflections.

    Thanks, PandaNate, sounds like a plan Is there a follow tool or do we sort of just 'stalk' other members?

    Smile

    Well, that didn't work out.... Back on track with other half's support...

    I'm a veggie, so obv a green day!

    Breakfast (in bed!)
    Quorn bacon sandwich (Bacon 1.5 syns, Butter 1 syn, Sauce 1 syn, Bread HexB)
    Lunch
    Fat free yoghurt
    Dinner:
    Boiled potatoes
    Country veg soup (HexB)
    Pasta
    Quorn Best of British Sausage (2.5 syns)

    Other stuff:
    Sugar in my mugs of tea: 2
    Milk in teas (HexA)
    cheese on the makeshift veggie 'casserole': HexA

    Thornton's advent calendar choc: 1 syn.

    Total: 9 syns.

    I think for dessert, I will have some fat free vanilla yoghurt and stir in some options hot choc powder for a yummy chocolately nom.

    Today has gone quite well... I suspect that weekdays will continue to be difficult, as I run sessions where the group (despite youthworker input) continue to cook chips or pancakes or some such... it's really hard to not eat any when you're hungry and won't be home for hours..... More willpower will be needed!

    I don't really know, PandaNate - throwing myself into work and study and I sort of forgot to concentrate on weightloss... but then I dug out the wii Just dance disks and got back to the diet and I'm feeling focussed... for the moment.I think the prob is I wasn't focussed enough to be on here regularly and here is what makes it easier! 30 mins of dance and only 3.5 syns so far today.... I'm gonna do it... HAVE to do it!

    Welcome back, let's make this happen

    I discovered I'd missed a day of my advent calendar chocs... so another syn on, but I *just* managed to not rip open the cupboards to satiate my choco-drive... I'mnot sure how long I can keep ignoring the fact that there is chocolate in the cupboard

    I'm still struggling, I think I'm going to restart on Wednesday as that's when I WI next. My boyfriend arrived home after being away all weekend and he usually helps control me of an evening, but instead we feasted on massive bowls of handmade nachos. I regret it as I woke up this morning feeling very sick, had anti acids but been feeling terrible all day.

    I've just finished the bagels off so that's gone now. My stash of mini chocolates are gone now, so hopefully that's about all there is to make me fall off track. I'm at work from tomorrow, 3 days, 2 evenings so I should be able to get back onto plan well as working helps take my mind off it. My danger zone is when I get home and have to wait until my boyfriend gets home before dinner. (I finish at 3pm, get home near 4 and he's home 6-8 depending on if he works over). I eat my lunch at 10:30-11am on day shifts and 7pm on evening shifts.

    So still doing okay on plan so far?
    Have you just gone from where you left off or restarted everything. I've restarted everything, my stats on SW online and on here. xx

    Oh noes I hope you really enjoyed the nachos, then! Not that it would be a good thing, but SO much better than not enjoying it and then being ill

I eat my lunch at 10:30-11am on day shifts and 7pm on evening shifts.
    I have bought myself a bag of apples and I cut one into slices so I eat as a munchie style food (that plate/packet to mouth movement!!) whenever I get a munchie attack... Similarly, the other half and I work mis-matched shifts, but I'm the late one... My danger point is when the youth group are cooking and eating food which is not SW friendly! Tonight I drank LOADS of hot water with a little lemon juice and sweetener in to keep my stomach feeling fuller so I wouldn't crack... It worked!!

    Have you just gone from where you left off or restarted everything. I've restarted everything, my stats on SW online and on here. xx
    So far, so good.... Yeah, I've restarted... after a short bout of illness, I was only half a stone off track, but the number screw with my mind and bring me down, so it was mentally healthier and more conducive to getting back to it to start from scratch and not keep feeling bad that I'm however many days/weeks in and still not where I was before- I can celebrate my achievements in their own right!

    Good luck with the restart... Go easy on yourself, it's not easy to deal with weightloss and life altogether!! xx
    Being old enough to know better isn't all it's cracked up to be
