Still Struggling - need encouragement
Sunday, May 01, 2011      5 comments

I'm still struggling with emotional eating, I have good days and bad days. I'm hovering in a half stone band so I guess the good days are equalling the bad days at least. Yesterday I went out on a photo walk along Regents Park Canal in Lon... Read more
Back up to 210
Sunday, March 27, 2011      5 comments

OK flash point has been reached. I'm 15 stone again, 210 lb to those in the US. I'm tired all the time, I'm working hard, don't really feel much like taking care of myself and can't get myself into a routine to run again. My dodgy knee i... Read more

I've not been able to post very much as life is very busy at the moment. However, I had to post this. Last night I went to a comedy night at a pub about 15 minutes from home. I went with my gentleman friend and the pair of us sat around 4... Read more

Ok, back again, after a horrendous last few months of 2010. I won't go into the whys and wherefores but the fact is I have been using food as a comfort. Thankfully, I've only put on 7lb, it could have been far worse. I'm still 2stones lighter... Read more
Back down again

Back to 200lb again, down 2 from 10 days ago. Considering that I'm not 100% keeping to 1600 cals I'm doing well. I think once I'm back at work and don't have lunches and dinners out day after day I should be fine. Had to take a size 18 sk... Read more

In the last couple of weeks I've really let things slide culminating in a 3 day Disneyland Paris binge of junk food and carbs that see me up to 14st 8 again. So pulling in the reins, food diary at the ready and eating very sensibly again. I kn... Read more

OK so I'm back to work part time and I'm finding it really hard. Today is my 4th day back and I woke up feeling soooooo tired even though I had a snooze in the afternoon and went to bed at half past 11. The alarm woke me up at 6 and it was har... Read more
A little slide back
Monday, June 21, 2010      6 comments

Had a manic birthday week, overdid it a lot. Ended up doing a fair bit of hoovering up of left over birthday cake and picnic stuff and have put 3lb back on. It won't be here for long. Back on the bandwagon from today and back to work part time... Read more

OK I've finally got my ass into gear and signed up for a 3 month gym membership. Well I won't be able to run before then so I need to do something that keeps me active and motivated. I got there and signed in, paid the money (ouch that hu... Read more
Desperate to get moving again
Thursday, June 03, 2010      7 comments

I've managed to drive a little way, more than 10 mins or so and my knee starts hurting like crazy, throbbing and feeling really tender, but it does give me a bit more independence. I'm dying to get moving again. I may well go to the gym la... Read more

As I said before, I'd not put any weight on despite having been laid up after an accident 3 weeks ago and a knee op last week. Id not been tracking as tightly as normal and without the excercise I've been pretty chuffed to stay static. Wel... Read more
Big dark hole
Tuesday, May 25, 2010      8 comments

It's unrealistic I suppose to think I'm going to sail through this recuperation time without any problems. That doesn't mean I was looking for them though. After the op I have found it more and more difficult to keep a lid on my emotional ... Read more
