    Friday 3rd October 2008 – mid-day
    Have just got back from group and have had a huge gain 5.5lb in just a week!!
    I am disgusted with myself and am very unhappy, the only positive thing is that I know that since 1st October I have been on plan so that the gain is not as bad as it could have been.
    So, I have gone back above 17st AGAIN but have resisted the temptation to completely restart etc, I gained this weight so I am going to lose this weight and have it showing on my record.
    Anyway I am in need of a big kick up the arse and also support and encouragement as I know I can do it but am obviously not in right frame of mind AGAIN.
    I can smell my home-made soup at the moment so I am going off to have my lunch and then to plan my week.

    Don't beat yourself up too much. The important thing is that you made the decision to go back to group and get back on the plan. In a max of 2 weeks, that 5.5lb gain will be history and you will be well and truly back on track. It's also good that you are planning your week so you know where your at. Good luck and I am sure those extra pounds will come off in no time. How much do you want to lose by Xmas?

    Ok, so you've had a shock today. 5.5lbs on is not the way you want to go. Put it behind you now and know that you don't want to feel like this again. That you only want to feel happy with your weight loss and proud that you will win and beat this.
    Don't give up. Plan plan plan. Good luck hun. XXX

    It's just a blip, you can stick with it this time. Have you tried an sos diary, or writing down your feelings to find out what you're feeling when you go off the wagon? And write down a list of pro's and cons for losing weight, it might help you focus on your long term goal.
    Good luck!

    Thankyou

    I know where I went wrong and the wrong things are too numerous to mention, but to be honest I was not on plan from 26th Sept to 30 Sept, I was hoovering up any thing that was in my line of vision!!

    Anyway, my homemade soup is delish and my consultant has sent me a recipe for Veg soup made with Super Free Veg and she assured me that I will lose weight this week if I have some of that - looks like I'd better get a shipping load of loo paper in!!

    I must admit that I did have a slight blip yesterday involving bourbon biscuits BUT then I redeemed myself by trying 2 new veg at tea time, roasted butternut squash & sweet potato, which I really enjoyed. I have a problem with veg, basically am not too keen and would go without if I could get away with it, but I have set myself a target of trying 1 new veg a week, and so far this year (when I have been remembering I must have tried and liked at least 15, including Baby Brussel Sprouts!!)

    Must go I have shopping list to write and a food plan to finish.

    Hi Michelle
    Draw a line under your 'blip' it is done and thats is it.
    Soups are a brilliant way to go forward.
    I made Thai butternut squash soup yesterday and making a vegetable one tomorrow so that is me sorted for a few lunches at work this week.
    Another suggestion - try and plan your meals in advance and then when you get home of an evening you know you will have something in ready to cook.
    I also now freeze cheese in 1oz squares as I know if it is in the fridge I will eat it 'because it is there' and now buy crisps for the family that I don't like so that I am not tempted.
    Hope these ideas may help.

    MY PLAN OF ACTION FROM 1st October 2008

    Remember how I felt after the food binge from 26th Sept to 30th Sept 2008 – ate what I wanted completely off plan – felt bloated, sick, constipated, acidic tummy – don’t want that anymore do you!!!
    Plan each day/week by Thursday – before group on Friday morning and before shopping
    Only buy things with known syn values
    Hide away high syn treats such as biscuits & crisps & chocolate
    Try something new each week – recipe, fruit or veg
    Don’t let my inner emotions get to me and start comfort eating
    Plan to EXERCISE at least 60 mins each day – in addition to walking I do during day and at work
    Keep active/occupied – so am not thinking about food
    Syn free food always available for snax
    Try to snack on SUPER-FREE FOOD (free on red & Green)
    Drink at least 2 ltrs water a day
    BE POSITIVE
    Don’t let one bad day become one bad week/month etc
    Keep diary/blog of food diary/activities/emotions etc DAILY
    Don’t bring myself down to level of others
    Ask for help & Support – tackle problems head on – don’t shy away from criticism it may be constructive criticism
    Stand up for myself whenever feeling down/put upon/used/taken for granted
    Try & make family understand my feelings/problems and ask them to respect what I am doing and avoid offering me temptation
    Emotional Eating – BE-AWARE of it - and tackle the problem when it happens.




    Restart from 01.10.08– new start new challenge
    Write a weekly plan & stick to it
    Why do I want to lose weight?
    I. Health
    II. Look Good
    III. Happiness
    IV. Live Longer
    V. FOR ME
    I am ready for to commit myself to sticking to plan – without weakening to any distractions

    POSSIBLE DISTRACTIONS/PROBLEMS
    I. December – Parties & Xmas – Plan it
    II. Unexpected problems/stresses
    a) Ill health – can’t be helped
    b) Stress/depression – talk it through with someone – ask for help
    c) Cravings - include in plan
    Support from:-
    a. Kevin – Hide all bad stuff
    b. Ben – Throw away his leftovers
    c. Mum & Dad – Incentives – Weigh more than DAD!!
    d. Carol & Pete – No Yorkshire puddings or high syn/high fat food and only yogurts for pudding.
    e. Alicia – send a copy of food diary each evening
    f. S/W Group – life lines & internet groups

    1.Set up PC chart to record losses
    2. Mobile reminders – B, L, T (7am, midday & 6pm) 6.45pm record Food diary & send off
    3. Write down food plan & shopping list at same time
    4. Commit to 60 mins exercise a day
    5. Drink 2 litres water minimum
    6. be positive
    7. Don’t let food be my comfort when am down

    8. Remember:-
    “If I want to be thinner, I must be clever sinner”
    9. Only have what’s on food plan
    10. Last but no means least:-
    “DON’T GIVE UP AT FIRST HURDLE”
    “A PROBLEM CAN BE RESOLVED WITHOUT FOOD”
    “DESSERT = STRESSED = DESSERT”
    “CHIPS + CHOCOLATE + CRISPS = FAT MICHELLE”









    Not Sticking to Plan Re-Read Books
    Make a Plan for Week Ahead
    Too Many Treats Make Low Syn or Syn Free Treats
    Ensure Plenty of Low Syn/Syn Free Snacks available
    Not Enough Exercise Start Walking/Cycling Daily
    Aim to do Average of 10,000 steps a day over a week
    Aim to increase distance cycled
    Boredom – Same old food etc Start Experimenting with New Foods
    Plan Special Meals
    Try new Recipes
    Adapt favourite recipes
    Depressed/Stressed Losing Weight/Getting Back in control will help
    Temptation – always there Don’t Buy Tempting Items
    Always Have Hi-Fi bars available
    Chocolate Cravings – Freeze Chocolate
    Make own snacks
    I am Lazy Get Motivated
    Listen to Motivational CD’s
    Use Hypnosis CD’s
    Sleep at Night not During Day!!!
    Use Stuff on BT Vision to get variety
    Keep Putting off Start Date – e.g I’ll start tomorrow/next week Start Now – 02/05/2008 – Aim for loss no matter how small
    Don’t let a small “off plan” incident put you off – Remember tomorrow is a fresh start!!
    Remember that Flexi Syns are allowed – occasionally!!
    Lack of Inspiration Re-Read Magazines
    Actively join internet groups
    Stitch reminder for purse etc
    Set small personal targets & rewards
    Lack of Support/encouragement Get family & friends to cheer me on

    Hi Kitten! Can I suggest that you check the date of the last post before replying to a thread as this one is 18 months old. Bumping old threads back to the top of the board can be confusing as they can have out-of-date information in them ;)
