Here I go again on my owwwwwn

Ok so here we go. Again.

Being overweight – it’s huge. (Pun may or may not have been intended. Decide amongst yourselves)

I have not lost a lb. Not one single lb. In fact I had a horrifying moment of hitting 202lb… not only did I cross from 100s to 200s but I believe that is actually closer to my start goal than my ultimate goal. 

Things I am Trying

  • Exercise – I bought a spin bike. Β£50. I’m hoping it’ll be used more and more as time goes on. Currently 30 minutes a day is the goal. 10 minutes at a time. When I can. 
  • Weighing – I have been known to cheat. Weigh 100s of times a day. Before the bathroom, after bathroom. Naked, clothed. I also have knocked off weight that I record because “I drank a tea” or “I’ve not peed today yet” so I bought Withings scales! Even in the sale they were Β£73… but they upload my weight automatically to various apps and then it’s out there.. in the Internet world. I can’t lie and take it back. I can’t knock anything off either as the weight goes directly – no edits! I’ve so far weighed a lot less since.

    And last but not least… I’ve been referred to an eating disorder dietician.. Which has been a long time coming and will hopefully sort some stuff out 
    In other news… I have rejoined the gym too as I finally grew a pair and applied for a work transfer!! Go me!! This means work not only sucks less.. but I also can go back to Spin classes in the mornings. Yay!!!

    Broken

    I hate this. Hate that I’m stuck and not even able to make myself try.

    Half hearted effort follows half hearted effort.

    And the only thing that is happening is I’m getting fatter and sadder in equal measure.

    I’m pretending to follow a meal replacement diet, yet I’m driving to 24hr stores to stock up on jars of chocolate spread and bottles of fat coke!

    I am the heaviest I have been in over a year and it shows no sign of getting better. Everything feels broken.

    I no longer go to the gym. I don’t eat meals. I live off snacks – tubes of squeeze cream, blocks of cheese, family bags of Yorkshire puddings and mugfuls of gravy.

    I disgust me. Nothing I own fits anymore. I hace gone from 163lb to 192lb. I just want to crawl in to bed and sob myself skinny.

    So far it hasn’t worked. I need a plan.

    I need help? What can I try?

    Getting My Shake On!

    So I got fat. As in… piled on the chub. I creeped from 163lb up to 188lb! Ouch!!

    As soon as I ate anything that was it I couldn’t stop. It didn’t help that I’d got myself in to a crappy relationship with a jealous control freak… who wanted to feed me up  (to match him/ensure I wouldn’t wander). I got myself in to a terrible habit of 2 share chocolate bars a day, no real meals just nasty snacks 24/7. The sickness came back too… sorry guys.

    So I have taken drastic action and cut out food fullstop to try and reset my body a touch. Don’t panic kids… I’m not starving, I’ve gone back to Exante.

    Recap time – Exante, 3 meal packs a day and 2 litres of water. That’s it. Nothing else shall pass my lips!

    Week One – July 13th – 188lb

    I managed Monday through Friday 100%. On the Saturday I went on a work holiday with food included. Saturday and Sunday I had two packs and a small meal.

    I lost about 10lb

    Week 2 – 20th July

    This was the holiday. Monday to Friday was either 1 pack 2 low calorie low carb meals or 2 packs and one meal. It was so tough turning down cream tea and all paid for meals out twice a day!! I snuck my scales in my suitcase and I lost about 2lb… which isn’t to be laughed at I guess.

    Week 3 – 27th July

    This has been such a tough week. I was 100% Monday and Tuesday. Wednesday I was back to work and it was a clients birthday – he saved me snacks and cake etc. Which I ate of course. Three days in a row I pigged out. Friday I used up two veggie pies and chips from my freezer and vowed to get back on it Saturday.

    Saturday – deserved its own paragraph!

    I had a shake at lunch, then got invited out to Cardiff for the day. Off we went to the most amazing Waffle & Sundae House… and I had….

    …. a diet coke!

    That’s right, Saturday was the 100% on plan. So far Sunday has been the same.

    I’m now back to 176lb – 12lb down in almost three weeks (2 if you discount my work week!)

    And long may it continue – 3 more weeks and I’m away and will eat anything I want. Until then, Exante all the way!
