I bet you guys are as sick of reading it as I am of writing it.

I f*cked up again.

Chocolate, bread & jam, fruit cake.

I feel rubbish – sick I mean, as well as feeling bad about screwing up. I have to figure out what’s going on with me or my weight is just going to rocket.

Someone come and bar the way to the kitchen… please?

I need help

Or surgery – a mouth bypass operation.

Crap crap crap


  1. Sometimes I just have to remove all temptations from the house for a while...

  2. Sometimes it is really difficult to stay on course with a pantry full of derailers.

    Please don't be too hard on yourself and don't engage in some crazy thinking that says you've undone all your good work, because you have not. You are just in a rough patch (me too). So, perhaps it's time to conduct a pantry purge of all the most tempting? And if not a purge, then perhaps a relocating? May a car boot? Or an outside shed? I do not have a clue what you might have there in Wales - but just until you are feeling a bit better and stronger?

    Hugs to you, dear girl. I KNOW this feeling.

  3. I know what you mean - I think my readers probably get sick of reading about my "self-sabotaging" binges too.

  4. Hi Chrissie. I wonder what is really behind this? Esp after you got through your holiday and Christmas without things going out of control. Maybe you are very stressed over the job search?

    Even if it's a background thing that you're not consciously worrying about, it still causes the release of stress hormones which cause carb cravings.

    I have suffered stress hypoglycemia and the only way to deal with it is to tell yourself that it isn't real hunger. Also chromium GTF supplements (available at H and B, not picolinate) is a blood sugar normaliser and can help if this problem carries on.

    I really hope things are going better today. Sorry I couldn't write this yesterday but the connection went AGAIN.

  5. I can really sympathise with you Chrissie, I've been having a similar problem myself for the last couple of weeks (I've managed to gain 4lbs this week!). The post from Friend of the Bear is interesting as I think I have a bit of hypoglycemia as well. I think I'm to try and stay away from carbs, including most fruit for a few days to see if I can bring it back under control. I don't know if that could help you as well.
    Hope your getting on ok today, sometimes you just have to keep at it as best you can xx
