Weeell, I have been backsliding terribly, ever since Christmas really, and it's showing. I'm now 6 lbs heavier than I was before Christmas, and it's not even all about the Christmas chocs although my other half finally opened his tin of Roses, and that's been bad). I've been tempted by the Kitkat chunky limited editions, and chocolate brazils in the £1 shop. And, not exercising as much, apart from work, and fitting in a half hourish workout during the half term holiday. I might be full of good intentions in the morning, when I'm at work, but once I get home I just feel so pooped, I really don't feel like getting all hot and bothered, even though I know intellectually that I'll feel better if I do work out. It's like when I'm eating chocolate, I can hear the wiser part of my brain going, 'no, don't eat that, you know you'll regret it, you know it's 240 calories that you probably won't work off.' and yet my fingers keep on opening the packet and once that gorgeous sweetness hits my tongue, that's it. I know that resisting the first bite is a lot easier than resisting the second, not just because of the logical, 'if you don't have the first, you can't have the second' but because once the taste is there, the craving is waaay stronger than before I took the first bite. I know it geths harder to resist when I'm feeling a bit tired, or worse, depressed. Then, I just don't give a F*** anyway. And a bit of it is the cold grey weather. I have the feeling it will be easier once its' warmer and brighter, after all, I did start on SP at the end of April and my motivation seemed to be fairly strong then. Come on spring, hurry up!

    I always feel that I'm burning the most weight after February until September to prepare myself for the gain of the rest of the year. October candy, plus the Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners really jack my weight up. Why did the parents of my wife separate, that makes two dinners for the holidays on her side and one on mine. hahaha. The weather definitely factors in, my dogs love to walk with me (except in the winter).

    It just makes the journey harder and our commitment stronger.

    Well I've not been gaining but I have been stuck on a plateau since Christmas so nearly as bad!

    Maybe the fact that I know just what you mean about the Kitkat chunky limited editions has something to do with it too! Loving the coconut one. emoticon

    Glad I'm not the only one! I did actually go to the gym this afternoon, did some running, cross trainer, weights, and stretching. I hate it when They are right, as in, 'they say that doing exercise makes you feel better'. It's true, and yet somehow, it's so hard to remember when I finish work and should do at least a little 20 dvd workout.
