One stone to go, I cannot stick to a diet

    Hi all:)

    Although my BMI is healthy, I've long felt uncomfortable with my figure. I dropped 10 pounds in the year, and although I'm thrilled with the results, I know I've got another stone to lose until I feel completely good and confident in myself. This is hard because I seem to be stuck in a kind of 'all or nothing' mentality - I'm either trying to stick to 1000 calories a day or I'm down the pub with a bowl of chips. There is no healthy medium and to maintain my weight (as I said, although last year my BMI was ok I was eating alot with a very poor diet withouth much fruit or vegetables) I've literally been gorging half the week and dieting the other half.

    I'm trying to stick to a healthy plan now, but I'm craving chocolate and cake all the time. It's also very hard to socialise without food, especially when my friends know I love sharing a pizza, going out for a creamy hot chocolate and cake and scoffing chips after a night out. I know I'd be so much happier slimmer (and I'd find it easier to move on after a nasty break-up from the confidence boost). Help!!

    Hi,

    Your post struck a chord with me, as this is exactly the same way i've been feeling. I started dieting in Jan, and lost 4 stone by August (on 1000 cals a day) I have more or less stayed the same since August, and have totally lost motivation.

    I too have an all or nothing approach, which is why i went for 1000 cals a day and i went w/out chocolate for months, chocolate is my downfall and once i have 1 bar I think i've ruined my diet and I eat anything. The past 2 weeks have been a nightmare, I start my day fine then as soon as I have even the smallest amount of chocolate thats me, Its like it gives me an open ticket to eat as I like.

    I'm such a foodie and not having my favourite foods is like someone is taking away a bit of my personality, but on the other hand, I seriously want to be slim so I struggle on.

    Good luck, im sure you'll be fine after the new year. I was gonna make a fresh start today, as I bought loads of healthy foods but i've decided to wait untill the 2nd at least that way I can enjoy myself tomorrow.

    :)

    Losing it should be simple enough in the new year I suppose, but I'm seriously worried about maintaining the loss I've already got.
