Well I got up this morning after a good night's sleep, 12 cups of water yesterday to flush out sodium, and got on the scale to find my weight is UP again. I am back to where I started. Again. Crushed.
I'm not saying I don't know why, exactly. But the thing is, apparently to lose weight and keep it off I have to be 100% perfect ALL THE TIME. And of course I am not. I am nowhere near perfect. So I lose a couple of kilograms or maybe only half a kilo and then I eat a bread roll and a couple of chocolate biscuits and the fat comes straight back. Five years, bouncing back to the same weight over and over.
Do I just give up now? Try to be happy at this weight? Do I go on some crazy punishing diet? Because what I am doing isn't working.
Could anything be more of a first world problem? Oh dear, I have so much tempting food available that I overeat. Gotta laugh, really. Or cry.
