Well looking at your posts I am encouraged, to be honest, that this step I have taken is most definitely the right one. "Gaining Weight" claims one member, "Need Some Advice" claims another.
I thought I was the only one out here with a weight problem that begins in the head. I have no problem dieting and losing weight when I stick to a plan. But stop the plan and stop the weight loss. In fact, stop the plan and restart the weight gain!
I recently had a diagnosis that changed me to my very core. I have kids, a wife and a great business and I ain't dumping on that for nobody.
I am not dying to eat the cake, the bacon sandwich, the fish n chips, the lemon meringue pie, the chocolate bar etc etc.
I am dying. Plain and simple. I will just die quicker if I put that crap anywhere near my mouth. Thats the plan behind my plan. Pay attention to what I eat. This site is fantastic. It has helped me redress the books. I may well have been a physical overdraft but I have put myself on forclosure notice and intend to repay every gram of fat back to the food cupboard. I lost weight this week. 0.1kg - Yes! 0.1kg - at that rate I will be at my target weight in 37 months. And you know what? That means I will be slim and my body will shrink with me. No fast path, no bull s##t.
Just plain old fashioned Dickensian "money in = money out = result happiness" type of common sense. If anybody thinks they are better than me because they can do it faster, then good luck to them. I gained weight because of what's in my head. My weight loss will start and finish in my head too. I have a psychological disorder a need to feed and I cannot view it any other way. I even call my blog "diary of a recovering fataholic" (http://recoveringfataholic.wordpress.com/). That's because I see what I have as a disease of the mind.
I had no idea I was in the company of equals with similar thoughts and feelings. I am proud to meet you all and in the words of the infamous Alcoholics Anonymous - I am Mario and I am a fataholic!
