    I totally agree- I'm a yo-yoer, so one I plotted my extreme weights and the years I was at those weights, then looked back at what was happening a that time in my life. Made for an extremely interesting read!!!

    It's interesting isn't it - when I was about 8/9 was when I was first conscious of being a little bit bigger than my friends but it turned into an obsession - I recently found a photo of me in a bikini when I was somewhere between 11-13 years old, and I had a wicked body in that picture and I've no idea what made me think I was fat. What resulted was extremes and ending up bigger than I ever should have been and the mentality seemed to stem from nothing! Crazy - and yet here I am at the age of 26 after losing over 3 stone to combat it.

    The mind is a funny thing.

    Interesting idea. I had a think about this myself. I think it was a) when I got to the sixth form and started having chips after school, which made me feel slightly rebellious and grown up and independent (lol) and b) in my second year at uni when I was struggling with stress and depression and started buying big packs of sweets, cake etc. I wonder how one moves on from these realisations to addressing them!

    Mine started way back in primary school 45 odd years ago.

    I am one of nine and back in the 60's/70's you couldn't buy/eat/waste as much food as you do nowadays.We just didn't have the money.
    One of my aunties was the school dinner lady so used to give me bigger portions and if there was any leftovers she always asked me first if I wanted it.Especially the desserts.I think that is where my sweet tooth has come from.So for years whenever there was food around I would eat as much as I could just in case I didn't get any food later.

    Over the last couple of years I have learnt that I don't need to eat 3 meals plus snacks a day to survive.So if I miss one or two meal a day I won't die.

    If you want it enough you won't keep finding excuses to not do it.

    What fits your schedule better -- Exercising 1 hour a day or being f** 24 hours a day?”

    Paleo since Apr 2012 9st 9lbs got to 8st 7lbs October 2012 and with focus,exercise and motivation have stayed below 9st since.
    Hard work and dedication pays off.No time for excuses if you really want to loss the weight.
    I can now enjoy special occasions without having to worry about what the scales will say after.

    Mine started from heavy bullying at school, I used to get picked on for various reasons and I dreaded going into school all the way through primary school and high school. I used food as a comfort and piled on the weight! Then I was diagnosed with depression and post traumatic stress which I'm now having counselling for. But things are finally on the mend and are getting better, plus I'm losing weight

    I have the odd binge but it always seems to happen out of the blue.I'm trying to pinpoint it and as I don't have periods very often now someone did ask if it could be connected to that.

    Going to start keeping a diary and see if there is a pattern occurring.

    Oh yes! But I bet we are making better choices even when we do have a binge now, compared to how things used to be. Unless of course we are too restrictive the rest of the time and just want to break free.
    I have tried a couple of fruit binges - pomelo, melon, and Danio yogurts are pretty tasty. But not always! Chocolate and wine still get in there sometimes. But I tend to think more consciously about what I'm doing and whether I really do feel in need of it!

    Yes I too find it harder when I'm on my own. And with a baby that must've been even more stressful!

    Thinking back to when I was 13/14 I used to get home from school before my parents finished work and just raid the cupboards, there was a cupboard where I used to hide things if they turned up early and I remeber finding half bags of crisps, half finished chocolate bars and even a block of cake icing in there!!

    Had some pretty sh**ty things happen when I was a kid so maybe it stemmed from that, the comfort of me being in control and doing what I wanted to yet feeling that I had to hide it away!

    I dont like looking back lol!!! :-/

    Xxx
    Nothing tastes as good as fit and healthy feels!!!
