Thanks so much guys, I've joined the January Challenge and am feeling positive.
You're right though, i can't go back, but i CAN go forward and I've removed all the temptation from within reach and asked for help from my family too.
One of the major things i noticed during my Christmas binge is how tired i felt all the time and how grumpy and snappy i was (which hubby kindly pointed out to me on a regular basis) and always in the evening after dinner i would feel sick and i think it was because I was eating so much rich, fat laden food and my body wasn't used to it after eating quite healthily for quite a while. So now i'm actually almost craving nutritious, healthy food.....now that can't be bad.
I've decided not to weigh myself until next weekend (the 12th of Jan) so hopefully the results will seem a bit better and i won't get disheartened by what i gained over Christmas.
Anyway thanks again everyone, and Juddy you've got me all competitive again...if you can do it, so can I, and i, like you, can't treat myself because once i start, i can't stop.... with me it's all or nothing.
