Weight on, damn it!!!

I got on the scales this morning to discover that I'm ** stone and half a pound, having been under the ** stone mark for several weeks now.  It's not surprising, I guess, since I know I've been emotional eating recently (e.g. half a tube of Pringles crisps yesterday!).  Absolutely gutted, it was such a downer to see that figure, I'd hoped never to be that number again.

Well, the answer's in my hands isn't it - don't eat crap!  Don't buy it - if we haven't got it in the house then I can't eat it can I?!  It's not rocket science FFS.

I don't know why I've been letting people and situations get to me so much lately....well, I suppose it's down to the depression.  I was feeling so much more positive at the beginning of the week, now I can feel it slipping away again.  And husband's got a new health problem which is a bit worrying.

  3. I am an emotional eater too but Ive learnt to change things over the last 5 years. If I want chocolate I have it but only a small bar. I don't keep any crappy stuff in the House so I have to walk to the shop. Sometimes I can't be bothered, other times I'm RUNNING ALL THE WAY!! 😂😂😂

  4. Two steps forward and half a step back is still progress. My downfall is cheese, any sort bar processed or mild. Just let it go, after all there is another day tomorrow not even touched. I watched a Lisa Snow SW video on you tube this morning and she talked about that type of response to stress and joy. It may be worth your while to have a look. It helped me put a few things into perspective.

  5. After a bad day, I think it's in the past, look forward and eat better today. We all have food necessary days, we don't keep many treats in the house, our problem is we live 5 minutes walk from our village shops.

  6. I threw my bathroom scales out years ago having struggled with my weight all of my life. Do you know what? my weight stays the same now and I just eat sensibly. I take my clothes as a sign that I may have put a bit on and just cut out the fats for a bit, it works. There is nothing more miserable than weighing yourself and finding that you have put on a bit. Really, our weight will fluctuate from day to day and a few pounds means nothing. Set your self free, throw the scales out. LOL

  7. Oof, I'm not the only one, also risen 6oz above the previous stone, drat and double drat! Not Pr***les but Magn*ms, oh and a tea and cake 'reward' after a long walk, and sausages for dinner, so, I shouldn't be surprised!! By end of next week I want 2lbs off, shall we do it together?

  8. It’s the only way to go I find. If it’s not in the house, we can’t eat it.

  9. I'll just send you a virtual HUG. Like Crafty Cats Corner I threw my scales out years ago, If my favourite clothes are tight, I try and eat sensibly for a while but I'm an anxiety eater too.

  10. How frustrating is that! Emotional eating is my biggie too and I haven't yet found an answer. Sending sympathy and positive vibes in your direction.

  11. If it's any consolation I think you showed great restraint. I would have eaten the whole tube!
    Fresh start and try not to be so hard on yourself. X

  13. Guess you could look at it this way.... look at all the things you WANT to eat and haven't. :)
    Take care.

  14. Sorry to hear hubby's health is encountering another problem. Hope it's sorted soon. Tomorrow's a new day so think positive!

  15. I hope hubby's new health problem can be solved soon. I'm in the 10th week of shingles and the meds I'm taking make you gain weight so it's a loosing battle at the moment. That **stone # will be back before you now it!

  16. Having read all the above comments and I’m days late with my blog catching up - we are all emotional eaters! This week I’ve been struggling not to eat ALL the things but I will let you into two secrets that I think has cured me of my addiction to Pringles!
    Once watched a programme years ago, think it was that silly ooo lady Gillian McKieth ? Anyway she set fire to a Pringle and it yielded ONE TEASPOON of oily fat. That put me off for a while but not for ever

    Our school now saves Pringles tubes for school trips instead of taking black bin liner lined buckets because they make PERFECT T sick ‘bags’ for kids on school trips. They fit the mouth area perfectly and you can then pop the lid on and dispose. So now when we I look at them in shops I remember school trips!!
    However
    This week I’ve been doing A LOT of imaginary eating!! I enjoyed an imaginary knicker bocker glory last night with some strawberries and cream Baileys I saw in the spar shop the other day!! I cannot stop thinking about it!! I’m 6lbs away from being under the Next stone bracket and I don’t know why, so far down the line, I’m finding it hard!!!
