    Do you believe your body has a "go to" weight? Because mine sure as egg mayo does!!!

    No matter how careful I am with my portion size, my calories, my fat intake, my water intake. I will lose maybe 4 pounds, I take my eye off the ball for maybe 2 days at most and BOING I'm back to 160lbs to start the cycle again.

    When I say I take my eye off the ball I do not mean I eat from the local chinese or chipper. I simply mean I may not count as strictly as normal, no major mega pig out sessions involved.

    I'm stumped as to what to do next. I'm in a cul de sac and doing an about turn but don't know what direction to set off in.

    I don't know what this thread will be. Maybe an honest look for myself into what I'm eating. I do realise I MUST be over eating or this simply wouldn't happen.

    Today I definitely have over eaten as earlier on I said to myself sure what harm eating like miss piggy for the night, at least I will know not to expect any scales miracles tomorrow.

    So today I ate

    B: 2 breakfast Biscuits with 2 coffees

    L: White bread ham and cheese sandwich

    D: 2 T*sco Burritos, bowl of custard with some cookies broken into it, a pack of snacks, a strip of strawberry crunch white chocolate, coffees.

    I am full to the point of over full. I know if I go back downstairs I will look for more to eat.

    Not eaten anything since. Part resolve, part laziness about going to the kitchen.
