my thoughts after reading others posts: reposting here as well...
Hi there. I totally agree. I was ordered off ALL processed food at the end of January. Look at my profile now! I wholeheartedly agree that they should be given a government health warning like cigarettes.

not impressed with only 1lb loss
It's good that you are depressed about the size of the loss but you must consider the more important issue at hand here Shabud - you lost. In my situation a static week is fine, two is fine, three is fine, as long as I am not gaining. Gaining is emotionally crippling to me personally. I would rather lose 1 gram or 1 ounce per week than gain it. And slow weight loss is good for your figure too. The ugly yellow globs of sticky fat hiding just under your skin are being taken and turned into energy by your body if you lose weight slowly. I don't follow any diet, I just pay attention to what I am putting in by recording it on my diary. The constant exposure to the data has taught me how to choose more wisely. But alongside this another great piece of advice I got was from my father in law (Professor Emeritus of Nutrition) who still lectures around the world about vitamins etc. He said my emotional side would need treats at least once a week to stay on track. Be naughty Shabud, have a ******** and enjoy it openly, while people are watching. Mine is toasted marshmallows. And I have a monthly treat of a Sunday Roast Dinner. We invite friends and everything. I'm getting it all out in the open to avoid all that emotionally hateful secret-eating I used to do. If they ask you just tell them it's your weekly treat. Stick to the one. Focus on it like I did at the beginning. Gosh it was hard but now I can do an entire month without treats but I have 'em anyway. Coz they keep me "on track" emotionally!

Your 1lb weightloss is to be applauded mate, not cried over. Well done you! Next week try to just take it as it comes, Your goal of 30lb lost is 1lb less than it was when you started - eh?

exercise management
Yeah! What Ingria said! Although as a sameday van courier who can often find himself rising at 2am to travel 500miles and then rest for a bit before doing some more - the game plan changes. My kind of driving is intense and needs recording. I'm not your average commuter.

Wow! You're no different than me! I thought I was alone. Wow!
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" ( 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! Smile
