I keep slipping up! Every. Single. Time!

I keep doing this to myself. I have a perfectly on plan week then when it comes Friday, I lose my willpower and go off plan and start having a massive binge. Today, I was good until later... I've had a bag of walkers crisp (sharing size!), 4 Oreo ice cream sandwiches, a crisp and cheese sandwich, a toffee ice cream, a big bar of Wispa, and just scoffed another packet of prawn cocktail crisps... I can't believe I keep doing this! I have fresh fruit and vegetables in the fridge, I should be eating them! I have lost 4stone in a year and still have another stone and a half left to lose and I am just sitting here, feeling fat as fuck sad I need a big massive kick up my almost moon-size arse!

Don't beat yourself up. It's done now so there's no use feeling upset.
You know it was "wrong" so just let this incident pass and tell yourself you will not give in next time. I know it is easier said than done but you have to try.
Seems to me like you are doing so well all week, then you over do it when you're not busy or when you want a treat at the weekend?
My DH and I were like this and used to have a treat on a Friday but it soon started happening on different days or just going over the top so we had to switch things up.
Is it possible for you to get rid of the crisps, ice cream, etc. so there is less opportunity for you to cheat?

Why we do this to ourselves is very complex. But you will learn. And coping strategies to lessen it, at least.

If I kick you, will you kick me please? I have just posted on another thread how good I am Mon to Thursday then undo all that from Friday evening to Sunday night. It is just so stupid! I think my problem is wine - I drink wine and start eating - alway rubbish - cheese and crackers, ice cream or similar. So the obvious solution would be to stop drinking wine - all I have to do now is put that into action.

I have been messing about with the same five pounds for months - too stupid.
