That remains to be seen... But being un-accountable (non-accountable?) hasn't been working for me any more than being obsessive was, and with the added downside of feeling cut off and alone too...
So, bear with me if you can and I'm going to try to start back at the beginning with what has always worked (when I really do it) - bog standard, unglamorous, no quick-fix calorie counting, meal photographing, daily weighing and reporting. I give it a week before I start looking online for a site that sells tapeworms, but fingers crossed I'll surprise myself - and you as well!
At the weekend my husband's parents came up and we went to see Skyfall at the Odeon in London - the cinema where they bring food and cocktails to your electrically reclining leather seat. It was a great day out, (and I really enjoyed the movie as well as the drinks )
Over the whole weekend I walked maybe a total of 8 - 10 miles and started to feel much more like myself, after a long period of stagnation when even walking in the sunshine seemed too much effort! Yesterday was glorious, though cold, and I caught the train into Reading for the morning to walk to Caversham for a bit of a change. I was even walking up and down the platform for about 15 minutes instead of sitting down (that might be partly due to the freezing cold metal seats in the station, but that doesn't mean it wasn't better than just parking my fat ass!)
This morning I got up & went straight out for another walk - just over 2 miles as I obviously had to get ready for work. I loaded my rucksack up with glass recycling but didn't deposit it as the bottle banks around us are in built up areas and it seemed too early (about 5:30 am) to crash around with glass. I went out again after work, just one mile this time though. Feels good to start getting out and about again, and because I’ve had quite a bit of back and neck pain lately I’m quite happy to take it slowly.
