Week 240

2.4lb gain.

Read Ties over on my main blog and it might give you an idea of the emotional pressure of the last several weeks.

Damage limitation is all I've been able to do for quite some time now

Starting Weight: 19st 9lb - 275lbs
Current Weight: 14st 1.6lbs - 197.6lbs
Body fat: 29%
Total Weight Loss: 77.4lbs

Losing weight is about more than what you eat. Your mental & emotional wellbeing are equally important - you have had a tough few weeks, allow yourself to slip up a little. You have other priorities at the moment.

Jacqui - losing weight is entirely about the emotional state - when I'm feeling OK, I can eat healthily.

When I eat healthily, the weight drops off as a beneficial side effect.

When I'm feeling awful, I self medicate with food; eating to fill the void within. And it's this which has always been the battleground.

The fight is not with the food, it's with my ability to avoid using food as emotional medication.
