Usually when I try to lose weight I become far too obsessive about it and it works great for a few months but then I get too busy to spend every moment working out what I am going to eat and how much weight I am losing and I just seem to lose my way.

This time I am easing up a bit. I feel that I have learnt so much now that I don't need to keep track of everything and plan everything to the minute detail and then panic if I can't stick to it. I keep a rough idea of what I will eat for the week in my head. That way there is room for change.

I will still eat my takeaways or versions of it but I will eat much smaller portions. I still want to be a 'normal' person and not have to say no to all food that is offered because I didn't plan for it. If its someones birthday then I will have a piece of Birthday cake. Just not the size that I used to have. A really small piece is enough for me to have the taste and not stand out as the one on a diet. Because I'm not on a diet. I've changed the way I eat.

I have also switched the focus from losing weight to getting fitter and being healthier. I have a fitness goal instead of a weight loss goal. And no more scales! I will weigh myself once a month and thats it.

I feel much happier doing it this way and it really fits in with my life rather than making my life fit in with me being healthy.

Time to Change

I have always struggled with my weight and probably always will. That is still no excuse for allowing myself to get this fat. There is no point trying to use a nicer word for it, it will only make it more acceptable. It is entirely my fault and I can't blame anyone else. I have eaten too much and the wrong foods and I didn't exercise enough.

I started here over a year ago and lost 20kg and I felt great. Unfortunately life hit a downturn and I put it all back on. During that time I stuck with the exercise but my eating went way out of control. I couldn't stop eating and I just didn't seem to care.

That has now stopped and I am feeling positive about all this.

I know I can do this. I want to be able to buy clothes in normal shops and look good in them. The thinner I am the more comfortable I am. The thinner I am the easier it is to exercise. I want that back again.

This time I'll do it!!!
