I did weightwatchers over two years ago and went from 11st 2 to 9st 4 in about 4 or 5 months. I looked and felt fantastic. But since October last year weight has gradually crept back on and now I am really down about it.
Unfortunately I am married to a 'feeder'. My dh is a chef and LOVES food and eating, as do I but it is a constant mental battle for me - should I eat something or not blah blah.
I over eat and my portions are too big but somehow I can't stop myself and I feel like I have pressed my self destruct button.
I know I need to get a handle on things and also get off my arse and get running again but I have so little motivation.
The children go back to school and nursery next Tuesday and I am telling myself this is when I will turn over a new leaf.
Please help to motivate me.

It doen't help that dh prefers me a bit heavier and gets very annoyed with me when I'm cutting back.
I also need to crack the habit of hopping on the acles every day.

I'm like a whale now too.

I haven't weighed myself in about three weeks now as I am too afraid!!

Dh & myself both need to lose some weight..

We are going on holiday next week & every time I go to look for clothes I come back with nada! As usual I lift a size 14 then end up coming out for a 16! I should only be about 8 stone for my height but am over 10st so I have more to lose than just 10lb!!

Can't you set him the challenge of preparing you some low calorie meals?
or just avoid the kitchen completely.
or walk the kids to school and take the long route home.

The crazy thing is I am not totally inactive, although I do now have a desk job two days a week. I also eat lots of fruit and veg but I just over eat. I binge eat but not chocs and crisps, its a second helping of curry and rice or a really big portion of spag bol, or a second sandwich for lunch.

I have turned over a new leaf today and ahve vowed to get my oevr eating under control. I have also booked myself a hair appointment which always makes me feel better. I just need to tackle this awful breakout of spots on my neck and jawline.
