These last week's of refeeding have been an emotional rollercoaster. After last year's experience I have been living under the constant fear of failing and regaining weight quickly again.
I did fine for the first 3 weeks of refeeding and kept the weight. But the daily weigh-in that you need to do is driving me crazy. Am putting myself under way too much pressure.
You need to weigh daily since it helps you recognise which of the food you try out makes you gain weight. Those are the ones you need to be careful with.
I realized bread makes me gain weight 2 days after I eat it. So I need to go slow on that in future. Well not funny!
When I started gaining weight this week I felt like I failed again. Until I managed to stop and think. It is about time for TOM. So I stopped weighing until the water retention and cravings are gone.
My second week of "healthy food no restrictions" is over. Now I have 2 weeks of clear instructions of what to introduce when again and I am done with the re-feed.
I have decided to relax over the holidays and just make the best choices I can. If I gain some, so be it. then in the new year I decide how to move forward.
It is time to concentrate on fun and quality time with friends while making healthy choices.
And for now I need to celebrate that I have lost 10kg - 22 pounds!
I am going to pick up my new glasses today which are a gift to myself.
