Don't run! Is only sandvich!

[Dec 2014] For over two years I let myself get out of control, and regained EVERYTHING I had lost and MORE. I was just emotionally eating and binging and ate myself back to my starting weight and more. I was so ANGRY about it as well, angry at myself and ashamed. Then I booked a holiday to go back home. I was ashamed to let my mother see how heavy I had gotten.

So I took control, lost 20lbs before my trip.

[Dec 2014] For over two years I let myself get out of control, and regained EVERYTHING I had lost and MORE. I was just emotionally eating and binging and ate myself back to my starting weight and more. I was so ANGRY about it as well, angry at myself and ashamed. Then I booked a holiday to go back home. I was ashamed to let my mother see how heavy I had gotten.

So I took control, lost 20lbs before my trip.

Those 10 days I was back I just ate EVERYTHING, and regained 6lbs. It made me realise that I still need to work on what's going on in my head and my relationship with food. I am in some ways, addicted to food and use it to sooth emotions.

But since that realisation I am determined, sticking to plan 95% of the time, and I'm now 1/4 of my way to goal.

I have taken responsibility for the weight I had gained. And I'm taking responsibility for losing it too!

[May 2012] Well I went off track for a good six months reverting back to the old habits of comfort eating, and I've regained half of what I lost. I was so miserable about my body and the comments I was getting it turned into a vicious cycle. It took a few months to get back into the spark, but I`m doing pretty well with alot of indian cooking at home, I`ve found I love spices, vegetables and legumes! Looking forward to losing the regain so I can start making new progress towards my goal.
WL is not easy but it is worth it for the results.

[2011]I`ve been working hard for more than half a year and really starting to see the results!
I`ve had a tough year work wise but I tried so hard to not slip back, I stalled but now back on track and making good progress. I hope to avoid any more yoyo-ing.
Like many people I have had issues with eating for a long time, but hopefully on the journey I can come to terms with this too.

Complete a marathon.



My Program:
Flexible dieting and IIFYM! (If it fits your macros)
Rather than focusing on clean eating, I have to hit my calorie and macro ranges and that's it.
It just means I end up eating clean most of the time, but no foods are off bound if you can fit them in. So I could go eat a McDonalds, if I'm prepared to be eating fruit and veg for the rest of the day.

Personal Information:
Early 30s. I'm a British expat living in Japan.

Way to go! Keep the Vlogs coming! I enjoy them immensely. You are such an inspiration. I am looking forward to hearing about your up coming races. I used to be quite a runner. Can't do it any more, but love to read about how people train for them and what workouts they do! My favorite run was the 15K and the 1/2 marathon! Although I only ran one marathon, I just loved it! Wishing you continued success in your journey! emoticon emoticon

Thank you for commenting on my blog. I really appreciate it and I know that I have to control my portions more! What a bummer to not eat all that we want! Ha! But so true. You know those people that can? Errr, even our son is that way. His metabolism must be really high. Oh well, we have to remember how much better we feel when we don't overeat and when we're slimmer. That helps me to be good! Have a good day!
