bought some scales
will weigh myself every week
have ruined my diet and used Easter as the excuse x
I know you don't need me to tell you this, but make sure you stick to weighing in once a week at the very most.
It can be very easy to do it more often and in the past, i've fallen into this trap and become obsessed. It didn't do me any good at all!

Also, remember that women can be between half a pound and ten pounds heavier around their period.

Go easy on yourself too, most people have some treats on Easter. :hug:

Anyway, i've been totally pissed off lately because it seems my weight being such an issue to other people.
It's so frustrating that people think it's ok to give me unsolicited diet and weight loss advice, without even knowing me, and I have to just smile and nod politely... :(
I get that they think they're helping, but honestly, it's really messing with my head.

It just seems like everywhere I go, someone has always got a diet idea to tell me about.
It's like i'm constantly being told the way I am is bad and I need to change in order for people to accept me.
To be honest, it makes me not want to live in this world... and then I overeat so I don't feel that emotional pain.

I can relate to what you're both saying topsy and Lu.

It's the evenings that I eat stuff that if i'm honest, I don't really want to be eating. I just can't understand why I do it - I suppose it's what might be called compulsive eating. In some weird way, I feel I have to eat certain things because that's what I always do.

In the past i've found doing something with my hands - colouring in or doing a cross-stitch - has occupied me enough not to binge eat.

It came to me the other day that i've never had any weight loss on medication, and when i've stopped my meds, weight comes off of me almost without trying.
I don't end up the weight I should be by any means, but I do lose a couple of stone.
I know I need my meds, so what can I do? :shrug:

Tasty things are bad for your health. We all know vegetables and low caloric food is better for your health.So my request is less your eating quantity anf eat diet food.
