Well done on a fantastic first week weight loss, that is incredible, well done you, you should be so proud of yourself!

I have been in therapy for a few years now and one of the things I have battled with is emotional eating. For most of my life I would go through massive binge eating where I would stack on 10-15kgs in a very short space of time, then I would starve myself and other patterns of bulimia. Learning to love myself no matter what (trust me, it has been a very hard road and I could write a book on it now I think) has been the key. Another great tool my therapist has me do is when I feel the need for a binge (so long as it is not due to being over hungry or depriving myself) is to close my eyes in a quiet room and gently ask myself why I want to eat. The key is to not think about it but trust the first thing that comes to your mind. For me it is usually worry, fear, stress about something in my life. It could be my job, a relationship, something I need to do that I am afraid of doing etc. Once you have realised the reason, try and either come up with a solution or talk yourself through it and ALWAYS being kind to yourself. Almost speaking to yourself like you would a small child. None of this tough love crap. Has worked very well for me. In 5 months of eating well and exercising to look after my body I have not once had a big binge though I have not unrealistically restricted myself either. In the past with any sort of weight loss plan I would go hell for leather during the week and overdo it with exercise and restricting my calories then on a Saturday or Sunday I would absolutely gorge myself stupid and that is NOT healthy.

The other thing that I have found good in terms of wanting to look after yourself is each meal you eat ask yourself that if you had a child that you were preparing a meal or snack for, is this something you would like to nourish your child with.

Keep going, you're doing great :)

hi grapefruit.

My therapist also taught me similar tricks but they dont seem to work for me.
i eat when im happy and when im depressed. the only time i dont is when im bored. its really fustrating. its not a sense in i can just close my eyes & give it some thought (although in the past it worked) its im now addicted to sugars and it makes it so much harder.
i feel like im comming of drugs

Week 2. and this week ive seen no change. just alot of changes in my skin and over all glow from the amount of water i have been drinking. and the break outs because of all the bad toxins leaving my body.
i feel better and less stressed even if no change.
how ever im using ultra slim now because they taste like a chocolate milkshake but not so it fools my body.
and on monday i start with my personal trainer so should all be getting better from here. ill post a pic soon so can see the comparisson

That's wonderful news about the changes in your skin and that you're starting with a PT next week, you go woman!!! I would not at all be concerned about no scale change this week, especially since your first loss was so massive. Well done :D
