    Hi everyone,

    I know I shouldn't weigh myself everyday but I do....

    One question. Why when I have 2 naughty days do I put on 6 lbs but when i have 3 good days I lose 1lb? It just doesn't add up.

    It really upsets me that I'm now back to more than I weighed on Monday because I ate a few naughty foods on 2 evenings (2 birthday meals out) when I was really really good for 3 days and lost 1lb

    Does that make sense? Why doesn't it put on as slowly as it takes to lose it?

    It's really upset me. Am I never going to be able to eat out with friends and family again?

    I guess now I see the problem with weighing myself everyday.

    Is a 6lb gain normal for 2 dinners out?

    Feeling a bit upset that my life is going to be full of diet foods and calorie restrictions forever more if I'm ever going to get back to my happy weight.

    Sorry for being depressing. It's just I needed to get it off my chest. :0(

    What diet do you follow? As in when you're "good" for a few days, what does this consist of? Diet and excercise wise.

    I'm on a low calorie diet. When I'm good I manage to have fruit or porridge for breakfast. Then a soup for lunch. I snack on fruit mainly oranges apples or blue berries and then a light dinner. I eat lots of miso soup and add vegetables or I have a dinner of salad and vegetables with fish such as cod or salmon.

    I've put on a stone since moving in with my boyfriend and all motivation is out of the window. Today I've had 2 dinners. I ate at my mums and then just ate half of my partners dinner too.

    I feel so depressed and I'm so annoyed with myself. I can't work from home anymore because I eat everything in sight. Even when I am not hungry!

    I'm thinking of maybe getting hypnosis or something to control these binges. I don't know why I do it and I feel terrible after.

    My clothes are getting too tight :(

    I put on weight so quickly and take ages to lose it. :( x

    the thing is, to lose a pound u need to burn 3500 calories more than u eat. so even having 1 naughty day can make u put on a pound (theoretically). the worst bit is that it takes a lot of effort to lose that pound again. dont be depressed, just try to focus on why you're doing this and take things slowly - losing weight wont happen miraculously quickly but as long as you're losing it thats all that matters :)
