Having a really bad week :(

S: 16st8lb C: 13st4.6lb G: 10st10lb BMI: 30.3 Loss: 3st3.4lb(19.57%)
Hi guys, I'm having a truly awful SW week. I had a 9lb gain last week after going away for the weekend (plus a few bad days in the week) and I just don't seem to have been able to regain control at all this week.

Every night I've been craving sweets and chocolate and have found myself in the kitchen on more than one occasion mindlessly stuffing food into my mouth and even eating things like peanut butter and chocolate spread out of the jar which I know is absolutely disgraceful but it's like I'm possessed by some sort of binge eating demon!

Thankfully food in the day has been reasonable and so it's not as bad as it could be but still, it need so stop ASAP.

I guess I'm just posting this to see if anyone has any help or advice for me at all on how to shake this horrible feeling? I've got over 2 stone to go to target and I'm never going to get there if I don't do something about this soon.

I've even been considering changing diets as I do feel like I'm bored with SW (been doing it for 5 years) but I'm under no illusions that that will solve all my problems and I just need some help.

Sorry this has turned into such a long and rambling post, but any help would be very much appreciated.

Thank you :)

Ok clareel.... Here's my advice for what its worth :)
Firstly, box up all the naughty food you don't need in your cupboards and put it somewhere that will be difficult to get to( I use my garage). This is far enough away to help me get back in control and also where i can't be bothered to go to, but not chuck food( which is far too expensive these days) away.
Secondly, get slimming world mags together and re read the inspirational weight loss stories, focussing on ones that relate to you ( same height, same start weight, same reason for losing weight) - it gives me a boost and motivates me every time.
Next, make some low syn ' naughty ' foods. One of my favourites is the slimming world Jaffa cake and the cheesecakes. ( recipes in the forum) then when you're feeling like being naughty- it's not that naughty. Or active ff yoghurts- I love these.
And look at fat pics of yourself - there's a reason why you started this..... Remember it! ;)

You're obviously fed up right now & feel like you'll never lose that 2 stone left; but you will get to target. Remind yourself how well you've done so far, what you've achieved, you can go on.

I put biscuits etc on the 'top shelf' in the cupboard so I can't see them or reach them, ok I know they are there, but somehow it seems to work.

Keep so low syn treats in for yourself, I make up sugar free jellies & add either quark with sweetner or Asda's ff greek style yogurt (which is syn free).

I always make a point of counting all the syns I've eaten & it's easier for me to count them on a weekly basis. I find counting all my syns keeps me in control, it's easy to think 'you've' blown it when guessing how many syns are in that yummy cake. Just to give you an example, I went to a birthday lunch yesterday & had sticky toffee pudding with ice cream for pud, it was only 4 syns for 28grms so I guess the pud weighed more than 28grms, I worked out the pud & glass of wine I had was only 17 syns:D.

Read the sucess stories on here, check out the food diaries & forget about the 9lb gain you had, it's done now & not worth worrying about.;)

Thank you both for some great advice :) I've woken up today feeling much more positive, been for a run and haven't eaten anything I shouldn't have (yet!).

Geemav - I got my fat pics out last night and reminded myself of what life used to be like at that weight and how much I don't want want to go back there.

Happy Holidays - You're so right, I probably haven't been anywhere near as bad as I think I have and have got to keep going.

Thank you both :)
