i need telling off / straight talking
Had the worst week ever food wise. Thought'd I learnt not to binge/comfort eat but obv not. Last wk was beyond stressful due to lots of hosp visits/tests/genetic specialists. Found myself eating none stop junk (whole cakes, chips, huge lumps of cheese). My tummy is now swollen + painful. Missing healthy food!
Going to try + get head in gear but will be hard ova next 3-4 wks to focus so I need telling on a daily basis to behave as my heads all ova please.
So please can I ask for lots of mgs/comments reminding me why I'm doing this. I so want to get to my official goal. My sw consultant kindly agreed to let me call goal at last wks weigh in then wen all this calmed down in sept I'll reduce it and get to my proper goal (prior to this wks bad wk I was only 9lb away).
Message 1: You are doing this because you want to be slim, healthy and full of energy. Think about how rubbish you feel right now compared to how great you feel when you're following plan 100%, and focus on that feeling when the cravings to binge start!

If they are then focus on that and remind yourself why your doing this and the end result as well as a family you will be healthier in yourself.
If not .... then aside from the test at the hospital ask yourself what is causing you to "binge"/ over eat, put yourself on self destruct. If its stress then can you do anything to reduce that stress? is it boredom? find a hobby. You can do this, take one day at a time. Plan your meals maybe a couple of days ahead rather than for a full week, as planning for the week may be too daunting. Dont buy bad stuff to keep in the house, if the stuff isnt there you cant have it. Keep lots of low syn snacks in, so that if your tempted at least you know its on plan.
The only person your hurting is yourself - come on you can do this, you have to ask yourself what do you want more THE FOOD or THE NEW BODY i know what id choose x
Thanks for replies.
I think saying it out loud helped - trying to take 1 meal at a time cause head so messed I can't think beyond that.
Went to a clothes party Fri night and tried few things on - which was definite motivation to keep going.
Got wi tonight which I'm dreading but least it means start of a new wk! X
Good luck for WI you can do it
Actually only gained 1.5lb which I'm pleasantly surprised about.
Trying to be focused this wk but head still mashed but 1 day at a time eh x

1.5lb is not bad at all. I've been doing this a year & still have the odd day where I completely lose the plot & binge. The trick is to get straight back on the plan the next day & not beat yourself up about it too much. We're all only human. Best of luck on the rest of your journey
