So, some of you may recognise my username and my previous journal (http://www.minimins.com/calorie-counting-diaries/314123-day-one-new-life-18-8-stone-lose-19.html) from last year. I started on the 16th April 2013, so nearly exactly a year ago! I did so so well, I lost 52lb, I felt great and I was sooo motivated! Until around November when it all caved in and I gave up and now I'm about 18lb higher than my lowest weight. I know exactly what I need to do to lose weight, I know what food groups I should be eating, what calories I should be eating and what exercise to do, but sticking to it is another issue! Over the last few months I've had a real issue with binge eating. It's as if I wake up with the intention to getting back on the diet then all of a sudden i'm binging on everything in sight. So, this diary may in fact be an emotions diary for a bit to work out the route of the problem until I have the mentality to stick to it.
