It took just one week to put me in the same place where I was two months ago.
And I don't even know why, it's been going great so far. I've been working out, eating right, seeing results. And then the binging started with no apparent reason. And I gained everything back, and just when I thought I could try going into maintenance.. Guess I'm not ready yet, huh ? So now I have to start ALL OVER AGAIN. Counting calories made me really obssessed with food to the point where I literally couldn't stop thinking about it, so no wonder that letting go felt good. When I was slim I never thought about food, just kinda ate whatever I wanted whenever I wanted, and I wanted to be like this again .. I guess I didn't quite realize the commitment weight loss takes, nor the fact that it's not a temporary thing but a permanent change and that I can never go back to just eat whatever I want. I feel so stupid because of this past week but there's nothing I can do about it now, just carry on with the new realizations that I had to learn the hard way, but this time I think I'm going to try to find the right balance between control and looseness, and accept the fact that this is permanent. Has any of you dealt with anything similar before ? What do you think ? Any advice ?
