Well done on losing that 4 stone, you have proved to yourself you can do it!! I did the same ... lost just over 4 stone in 2013 and put at least 1 half stone back on in 6 months when I was completely off exercise and eating good was hard for many reasons, excuses I won't bore you with.

It's been hard getting back on especially exercise but I had to remember how I felt vs how I felt now and I needed the part of me back I had worked so hard for not to mention the clothes that I have popped out of!

Remember all the positive things and remember you just need to bring some control back to your eating habits and once you get there you can enjoy good food and indulge in the things you like without all the guilt... we have to live too.

How did you get on today?

Hi. Congrats on the initial weight loss. I read an article, well many articles, about distraction techniques. As someone who used to self medicate with pizza, one I've found that really helps is the same one I use to avoid doing housework and exercise The I will do it .. but later. Yep I am going to get a takeaway but I'll just finish this movie. As long as you don't commit your brain to specifics you can procrastinate for ever. Appease that voice with vague promises. I'm just going to eat this piece of fruit as I have not decided what pizza I'm going to order later. The takeaway is open for another 2 hours there no rush yet. Ah its closed well I can always do it tomorrow.
Use every dirty trick you've got. Remember how people used to say don't eat that it will ruin your tea. If you feel like you are tempted by something just grab a bowl of porridge or a jacket spud. If you do cave in you will struggle to eat as much. It only takes a week or so of healthy eating before your body tells you. Wow I really fancy an apple instead of that fully loaded cheeseburger. Especially if you do a short burst of some of the diets that eliminate cravings like Harcombes or juice fasting etc... Damn it thought to hard about that fully loaded cheeseburger .. gonna struggle putting that off all day

One thing have just started looking at is :

looks kinda fun and might help with the self sabotage. Just starting on the book. Hope you are doing awesome and we will all be stick thin and model like in no time
