    Welcome back!

    Went ice skating today. Boy that makes my booty hurt! No I didn't fall. Although I am actually scared of this activity. Just getting to the rink takes major pep talking. I was talking to another lady and she also says for her to get to the rink is a goldilocks day for her when everything is perfect. For me it is conquering fear.

    You are brave! The last time I went ice skating, I skated half way around the rink then I sat on the ice and took off my skates. I walked to the bench in my socks. Well done on conquering your fear.

    I love trunk or treats. I would decorate the trunk of my car and give out candy when my grandkids had them as fundraisers. People are so creative. It would be really cool with classic cars.

    I missed a bunch of sleep checks. So far so good with the sleep this week. Eating is better at night as a result. Weight hasn’t changed much.

    I am thinking about starting to eat breakfast. Do you eat eat breakfast? Why or why not?

    I love breakfast! Today I had steel cut oats with almonds, dates, flax seed meal, and soy milk. So delicious. I prep it the night before, soak the oats, almonds, dates in boiling water then warm it up in the morning and add the soy milk and flax. Super easy. The dates get kinda mushy and sweeten everything and the almonds are still crunchy but also swollen after being soaked all night.

    Yesterday I went to a yoga class and it was so amazing. I love how yoga makes me feel strong and like my body can do things that I didn't know it could.

    Never been a breakfast eater. I find if I eat at breakfast it makes me want food all day. I'm into fasting now so no breakfast makes it easier! Doesn't work for everyone!

    Losing weight is such a mind game!

    Sharing my thoughts to add clarity to my decisions!

    I m travelling in my rv, 'went home early October having lost another 10lb ... wore fitted clothes for the first time and people suddenly noticed my 80lb weight loss. Was a great feeling but majority of friends said .. brilliant but you don't need to lose more!

    They planted a seed.

    Octobers been frustrating ... exercising more than ever, eating right, but my weight loss is stalling. Demotivation has led to a 2 day mega binge :( I really thought I'd conquered my binging. So I'm up 4lb today. ( I know its probably carb water) but the number on the scales rules my life!

    And I recognise that RIGHT NOW is my big decision moment
    At this exact point I know I have 2 choices

    1. Carry on eating excessively ... see you back at 300lb in 18 months time! Like the previous 6 times I've lost loads of weight
    Or
    2. Get back on it. Overcome the food demons. Find the strength to lose that extra 21lb. Reach the weight I've dreamt of being. Implement my maintenance plan. Never get fat again!
    Tune in tomorrow for my decision!!!

    I hope you make decision number two. In the last 2 weeks you lost just over three pounds. Healthy weight loss is between 1 to 2 pounds a week. You are losing weight at a very healthy rate of loss. Look at your binge as a slip. One of the best things I have learned is I need to be able to forgive myself when I slip and binge. I know you can overcome your food demons.

    Thank you Linda for your encouragement. I've put my slip up behind me. Managed to get back on track the last 2 days, just got to get rid of the 4lb I gained!

    @363days
    HI, I live in Spain :) travel in my rv about 9 months of the year. Currently in Portugal.
    It's my happy place, and the easiest place to stick to my diet! I don't buy or keep any of my danger foods in the motorhome!
    In January 22 i read a free book called never binge again by Glenn Livingston and it really helped me with the binging!
    I had a weak moment earlier in the week, met up with some friends and ended up on a mega binge! All back under control again now, just have to shift the 4lb I gained!! Thanks for your advice and support x
