A sabbatical from SW

I'm a total fool. For the third time I have tapped out a long post on my phone then pressed a single button and irretrievably lost the lot! It is enormously annoying and even more so as I should by know better!


So here goes again - a less well crafted, more hurried and irritable version of what I typed a few minutes ago:

I seem to have given up on SW for the time being. To be fair, I hadn't really got going with it this time around. I restrict my food intake and up my exercise for 3, 4, sometimes 5 days each week then undo all the good work with unrestrained food or drink or both.

This has resulted in my weight staying pretty much the same. I don't see the point in paying a fiver to be weighed then staying for class to say the same stuff I said last week before going on to DO exactly the same as last week to the same effect, ie. no change. It's frustrating and makes me feel bad about myself.

If nothing changes, nothing changes.

That's not to say that I've given up. I still weigh myself daily, keep restricting the intake and keep persuading my chimp to exercise. This will have to do while I cast around for yet another key to unblock the impasse. It will come.

In my original post, I went on to chat about our weekend in London (we're on the train heading back north as I type). But I'm too tired and running out of juice and time so I'll finish for now (taking care NOT to lose this post) and will do a picture post of London pics another time.

Bye for now peeps!!

Shame about the static scale, but the fact that you're still weighing yourself and keeping basically on track is half the battle. You'll get there!

Yep, you most definitely will get there. Maybe some sort of 5:2 plan would fit with your lifestyle? Or a variation thereof, where you have 2 fast days, 3 moderate (1500-1600) days and 2 days "off" a week? It seems to work well for some people...??

Looking forward to hearing about your London adventures soon!
