I started WW about 4 weeks ago. Week one was great... even though I had bouts of binging (usually when I get home from work, around 4:30, I'm RAVENOUS and could literally eat ANYthing to satisfy it.)
Anyway, at my first weigh-in, I had lost 3 lbs! I was excited... the following week I did SUPER good and lost another 2 lbs but couldn't make it to the weigh-in because of a big storm.
Still, I was pleased with myself because I had wanted to lose 5 lbs by my birthday...and I was 5 days ahead of schedule!
Well, last week...... it was my birthday so... you can guess what happened. First of all, since I hadn't gone to my meeting, I hadn't picked up a weekly journal. So, I didn't track my food until Wednesday or so, when my friend made a makeshift one using excel.. but my birthday was Thursday so I didn't bother tracking. (Oooh, can you see all the excuses I'm making??!) Regardless, I had cake and yummy food all Thursday and Friday and then... I weighed in on Saturday and I was back up to 175... so I lost 5 lbs in total, in 2 weeks, then it took ONE week to gain 4 lbs of it back!!!
I feel guilty and disappointed with myself and I know I should think positive but I'm frustrated!!
I need something motivating... I've booked a 2-week vacation to Paris and Brussels in May.. and I wanted to lose 15 lbs. by then (in 2 months) and I think about it every day, but then I get home and I'm ravenous and I undo all the good work I did.. and I'm always hungry, and I'm always frustrated, and I always want to eat sugar.. I'm addicted to sugar, I'm like a monster!
does anyone else have a similar problem??? If looking good in Paris isn't going to motivate me to stick with it, what will??!!!
