Living The Not So Balanced Weigh.

27 Aug

When I first started blogging, it was mainly a way to keep track of my weight loss and share some support with readers. Obviously it’s now becoming way more than that, but weight loss is still a challenge for me.

I believe 100% in the Slimming World plan – I know it won’t work for everyone, but it works for me πŸ™‚ Check out my story here.

Despite the fact that I know it works, and I desperately don’t want to get fat again, I have been struggling to stick to the plan lately. I gained 2.5lbs at weigh in this week – not as bad as it seems considering I haven’t been to group for about a month due to work etc, but still – it’s a sign that I need to get a grip on my diet again.

I had a scary realisation last night. I was watching a dvd with the fam in the evening and I popped in to the kitchen to make a drink. I also had 2 chocolate cookies – in the kitchen. on my own. in secret. It’s actions like these that made me overweight in the first place – my family could never understand how I gained so much weight when we were eating practically the same?

I’m terrified. I’m glad that I’m in a position where I was able to recognise what was happening (before I gained 7lbs!), but it’s still scary.

I have a big weekend planned with friends visiting, but as soon as I return to school on Tuesday I need to get back on the healthy living bandwagon. I hope that by declaring it to all you 3xf-ers, I’ll stick to my plans.

Do you have any bad habits like my secret eating that may have sabotaged your efforts in the first place? What do you do when you slip off the healthy path?

    Best thing to do when you slip off is get back onto the health plan again!

    I definitely know where you’re coming from – last night I went to the kitchen to put some food away in the fridge and next thing I knew I was eating one of my husband’s icecreams! I didn’t tell him til today either. It’s like the part of me that loves sugar has a mind of it’s own. So I decided today is my last sugar day. Hopefully it lasts this time!

    Hope you get back on track easily πŸ™‚

    What I’ve found is that the only way to stop myself from eating something I shouldn’t be eating is to literally not have it in the house. A bunch of things I’ve read recently have talked about how our self-control just isn’t that good and gets exhausted over time, and the best way to get ourselves to do something is to make it as easy as possible to the do the right thing. So for me that means that whatever I don’t want to snack on, I don’t buy. I don’t know if that’s an option for you, but whatever you can do to make it more difficult for yourself to slip up, that’s the way to go!

    I’m with jessica…I just can’t have it in the house. I LOVE baking, but I know my limits and it’s just not in the cards right now-maybe by the holidays?! ha

    Your honesty is so refreshing!

    • Sophie @ threetimesf August 29, 2011 at 5:47 pm #

      Aw thanks, Liz! I don’t bake much (mostly cos I’m not great at it..) – maybe that’s a good thing given this post…!
