  1. Tiredness Kills

    I know that title may be a little dramatic, but when driving down the motorway yesterday I was reminded of the signs you used to get telling you to pull over and take a break. Well, I've come to realise that one of the main things that means I make bad choices is tiredness and that coupled with lack of planning (as I'm too tired to think ahead) has meant some strange eating patterns over the past couple of days.

    I had travelled down to London for the evening and wanted to grab ...

  2. Learning to Listen to my body

    I don't blog often, but felt this didn't really merit a thread on the forum because it isn't a question or even probably of much interest to anyone else.

    Over the past few months I have been doing so many different things and a lot of the time this has meant not being able to eat as I would prefer to. There have been occasions of eating in restaurants, cafes, social gatherings etc and having "options" hasn't been an option! However, instead of simply seeing the negative of all this ...

  3. Phase 3 Here I Come

    I am pleased that I managed to get rid of another pound over the weekend even though I caved in on the Hobnobs I think that I am around my natural weight now as it is a weight that I maintained for quite a few years. My BMI is 21.9 so I am happy with that. I just need to make sure that I keep eating for good health and not think that I can afford to cheat too often just because I am at a good weight. For vanity reasons I would like to get rid of another couple of pounds but if it doesn't happen ...

  4. Back on Track

    My new Phase 1 with a bit of P2 has got me back on track. However, I haven't got scales where I'm staying so I won't be able to weigh myself for a couple of days. I know that there is the theory that you shouldn't weigh every day, but I find it helps me keep control of my eating and in these early days it helps me work out what affects my weight even if it's hormones rather than food. Without the scales I find it easier to kid myself that if I eat something bad it won't make a difference but ...

  5. Back in Control

    It's soooo easy to open the door to the sugar monster and end up with him stomping all over your lovely weight loss. I had a few days where I was really busy and really tired and ended up going for the comfort options - at one point this included a rocky road cake bar covered in hot custard followed by a packet of biscuits! I was pleased that my sugar tollerace was lower than before - the packet of biscuits more than satisfied the craving whereas previously it wouldn't have been enough. I know ...
