struggling.....

Another weekend, and yet again I'm over points by about 12. I really seem to be struggling at the moment. I have 2 or 3 angelic days, and 3 or 4 BAD days each week, and its really starting to get me down. Why am I finding this so difficult right now? I'm eating things that I know are so bad for me, but I just dont seem to be able to say no. Even my mum is not helping !! Took her food shopping yesterday, and when we got back she gave me two crusty rolls with lashings of butter on, ham and turkey, and 2 fresh cream cakes to follow ! This time last year I would have refused, but now my willpower seems to be right out the window. I did feel so bad after I ate it though, that I had a 0 point salad for dinner and went for a 40 minute walk, but that's just a little like shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. What am I going to do ...ggggrrrrrrrrrrr........ swift kick up backside I think !

  1. It can't be easy when your loved ones are killing you with kindness!

    I'm not quite sure what to suggest. Maybe hang one of your holiday bikinis up or a dress you want to wear on the holiday, which is a bit tight, for inspiration?

    Repeat as a mantra:
    "EEEK!It's only six week till my holiday!" over and over every day, especially when faced with temptations?

    It's been a long road, and you're weary and dealing with other stresses too, but you know it's in there and you can do it.

  2. Keep up the good fight, Tina.

    One suggestion I'd make is, don't use eating healthier as a punishment for eating badly. See it in its own right as something wonderful. If that makes any sense. That change of attitude helped me a lot.
