I have been overweight all my life and have been dieting on and off for 11 years now. I finally reached my goal two summers ago and was thrilled about it! I maintained it very well, making sure even though I was skinny I would not over indulge.
Back in February, the school I work at was taken over by another. Things were good for a couple of weeks then the true colours appeared. I was put under so much emotional and physical stress it was (and still is) horrible. That triggered my binge eating marathon which lasted 3 months and resulted in me adding 3 stones! (18KG) The shock of wut I have become in only three little months did not make things easier, it only lead me to eat more and more.
I have been seeking support from people in the same situation and have been seeing a councilor. My mind is finally switching back to "skinny me" and not wanting to be imprisoned by food. I have come to realise that the job is not worth the emotional pain I cause myself.
I have been back on my plan for 11 days now and am planning not to "cheat" for at least 189 more days (200 days total).
Wish me luck! I would love to hear people's stories so please feel free to share!!!
