Well, I wouldn't say denial.... well maybe I would....

I've spent the last couple of weeks gaining weight back, around 20 lbs in total. It's pretty amazing just how much you can gain in a short amount of time! It also tells me that I haven't managed to change my lifestyle yet.

Old habits have come back with a vengeance: eating at my desk, binge eating at night, convenience foods, etc.

I had a job interview on Tuesday with an amazing company that has a gym in the building and is within walking/biking distance of my house which is perfect.

I currently work about 5-6 miles away from where I live and that's a bit far and also on very dangerous country roads. So no biking 'cause I don't want to get squished! :/

In any case, I think I just need a life overhaul. I think this happens to a lot of people, you see yourself heading for a slump and you reroute yourself! That's what I'm currently trying to do! :)

Should hear about this job either today or tomorrow. Exciting! :D

    I know exactly what you mean...I gained about 4lbs in 2 weeks just by flying by the seat of my pants and eating comfort foods. The job sounds awesome. Keep looking forward and stay positive!

    I know about gaining - I regained 10lbs over a few very stressful weeks and let myself do the 'emotional eating/drinking' thing. I'm back on track now and feeling much better.

The prospective job sounds great! Let us know how it goes.

    Just a thought...I don't know how old you are, but 20 lbs in 2 weeks is indicative of the ability to retain fluid...which is an issue in itself. Binge eating would normally be about 3-5 lbs/week gain. Stay alert to the gains and losses you experience...I'm a cardio pt and a small gain warns me that my meds aren't working. I like your plans ... it will work! Keep Sparkin'!!
