Have managed to maintain 62 - 62.5 kg for a whole week now. Feeling happy and hoping I can keep it up, although I've been really busy and not eating much so if I find it's not sustainable in the long term then I might have to revise.

I want to concentrate on learning to love my body now. This may involve ditching the scales.. but I'm still undecided! What do you guys think?

If you have a problem with scales, such as an obsession with weigh-ins, then I suspect removing them won't solve the underlying problem. I'd suggest fixing up whatever problem the scales exacerbate, which will reinstate them as a tool, and nothing else.

Thanks for the reply CB. I do agree to an extent but I also think they act as a maintaining mechanism for the underlying problem, rather than a symptom...

Hrmmm..

Hi all!

Well I have been busy with work/gym/social life lately so haven't been on the board much. Loving life atm - have started poledancing lessons and am hopefully going to try cross-fit soon! Loving trying new things!

Weighed in at 62.4kg this morning.. I've generally been maintaining about 62-63kg.

The past few weeks I've been listening to my body a lot more rather than eating out of habit, and I'm feeling a lot more in control and better about myself. Have also been doing some self help therapy to work on my eating issues - a lot of reflection, observing my thought and behaviour patterns, self esteem work etc. I did consider speaking to a counsellor but at this stage I'm feeling good and like I'm finally getting better on my own, but it's definitely something I'll consider.

I think what the main barrier holding me back from letting go of these issues were that they fuelled themselves - if I begun to let go of the issues, I would get scared of gaining weight, and therefore I didn't want to let go of them... but the fear of gaining weight was caused by them in the first place... if that makes sense??? Anyway, sometimes I still feel anxious if I've eaten something 'wrong' or too much but now I am aware of the anxiety and I can just observe it.

I don't ever want an unhealthy lifestyle back, but I want to be able to enjoy food and not have anxieties about it. Just treat it as a part of life to be enjoyed. That's my aim.

Hope everyone else is going great xxx
