Encouragement needed

Hi,

So I lost 32kg (70pounds) in around 8 months, then haven't been eating completely right since Easter. In the last month I've really gone a little nuts with carbs and have gained back 3.5kg (7.5pounds). Eeek, reality check right? Well I'd given myself permission to carry on with what I was doing until exams and my big exam was yesterday.
Basically I just need some encouragement to get back on the wagon and stay there. I know I haven't been doing my health any favours, but I just couldn't seem to keep away from the sugar when I was stressed.
Hopefully I can learn from this and once I get through the next few days I'll be fine again. I'll check in each day for the next week just to keep myself on track.

Manda

You definitely can do it - look at how much you lost before! For me, the first 3 days are the hardest. I tell myself - If I get through the first 3 days and don't want to do it I will stop. But that never happens of course

Your stats really scared me until I realized that they were in kg and not lbs Im just relieved that you are not anorexic!!

As for encouragement, today is restart day for me also. You and I both know that this plan works when we work the plan.

I've sure been in places where stress dictates what I eat, so I understand what you are saying.
Now's the time to jump in and focus and work out a plan for stress the next time it rears its ugly head (it has a way of resurfacing). Good decision to start again and seek support here.
You CAN do it.
