Weigh in? What weigh in!

I can't remember the last time I weighed myself - there, I admitted it!
It would have been some time at the end of my last 'Dietbet' challenge so I guess I could find out the date if I really wanted to. But I don't!
I know I've probably put back on some of the weight I previously lost and I'm dreading finding out how much but I know I have to face it so that I can get back on track.
Over the last 3 weeks or so I've eaten way too much chocolate and sweets, it's a cycle I've only just realised I get into - I lose weight and cut out the bad stuff and then something happens and before I know it a couple of weeks have passed and I have to face what I've done.
The strange thing is my meals stay healthy, I don't go back to the fatty, fried foods or chips etc that I used to eat a year or so ago, I eat healthy salmon, chicken,veggies etc, but I guess I just get the taste of chocolate and it's all down hill from there.
I'm annoyed with myself right now because although I only lost 21lbs I swore I would never put those pounds back on but chocolate brings on a zombie state whereby I don't even think about the damage I'm doing, it's almost like my brain has this switch that turns off that thought process while I'm eating it.

Tomorrow is the day I face up to the damage and weigh myself. I was going to have a week of no chocolate before I weighed myself but that's just me not facing up to the damage I've done so I'm just going to suck it up and weigh myself in the morning - I may even be brave enough to finally put my weight up on this blog, I've never done this because I'm worried someone I know may see it lol.

While I weigh myself I am going to try to keep this picture in mind

This is not my image but I love what it means.


  1. Good luck tomorrow with your weigh in! I see in your About Me page that you live in Scotland. I'm in Australia.

  2. Good luck tomorrow! Even if you did gain weight, you have made changes to your lifestyle! It may not be perfect, but changing is the only "weigh" you will keep it off.

  3. Oh, I hear ya! I eat healthy meals, no bread or potatoes, lots of chicken and veggies, no potato chips. But when I get around the chocolate, oh man. It seems like one taste turns my brain into Excuses Mode immediately, and then I am justifying up and down why it's okay to have a bit more. If someone could bottle up Willpower, I would buy some. I haven't given up though, and neither have you.
