Ok rewind instead of having the steak and veg for tea, one of my friends picked me up and we went and had ALL YOU CAN EAT pizza at pizza hut, which means, i had 2 pieces of pepperoni pizza, 2 sweet chili pieces and 3 hot n spicy pieces of pizza, and two wing dings.
Yeah epic fail here! But i really felt like some bad food tonight, i feel like ive done well through the journy and refuse to yell and scream at myseklf even though i knew it was a bad choice.

Hey, have just read your journal...please dont find what I am going to say as rude but

YOU ARE NOT FAT, weighing 65 Kg at 174 cm is not fat it is actually a healthy weight. Maybe you have areas on your body that you dont like but they are not going to go away by losing weight restricting your calories...they might go away for a few months but when you get sick of eating like a bird they are just going to pile back on...or you could eat like a bird for the rest of your life but it doesn't sound like you want to.

You deserve to feel great no matter how you look and you sound like a wonderful person.

I would suggest really thinking about why you want to do this? what you want to change? Do you actually care about the number on the scales or do you want your shape to be different? Do you have a healthy lifestyle now...eg eating lots of good stuff, bad things in moderation and do 30 min exercise a day?

While muscle weighs more then fat :( it actually burns fat so I would also suggest lowering your daily calories maybe by 200-500 but increasing your exercise doing some cardio to get you to the weight you really want and some muscle building exercises so that you can grow the insurance to keeping this weight off! Also doing toning exercises for those trouble areas...I think you mentioned thighs and tummy...this is exactly the same as me!

You do sound like a really wonderful person who has so much energy and drive but as you said I think you have gone about this sort of the wrong way and you are leaving yourself with very little energy...your body will just hold on to fat and you will lose muscle and water instead because it thinks you are running out of food...

High protein (not to the extend of atkins), low carb, low fat is probably the best way to eat but run it by the person you are talking about nutrition to tomorrow.

Thank you very much Dustany1dust :)
I dont think u were being rude at all, if anything you made me feel a lot better about myself.
thank you very very much for taking the time to write to me. I went to see the lady about nutrition and she took photos of me and weighed me in
at 65.8kg on her scales, so really ive gained a quite an amount :/
however yes you are right that im in the healthy weight range BUT i do have trouble areas such as stomache, hips and thighs where i hold a lot of fat, You asked if i am eating healthy? well, not consistently.
I wil eat fruit and a few veg and meat but i never mix it up enough. And i also have days where i will have pizza or something really grotesquelly
bad and high in fat. I dont FEEL healthy and hjave a long way to go in eating healthy,. It is my biggest struggle. I feel like i have not
been treating my body very well at all and i seem to crave icecream and chocolate and bad foods a lot. i used to eat a whole packed of buiscuts or
four magnaum icecreams. i dont like feeling as though i am obsessed in food. It is discusting and bad for me.
I eat more bad foods than good, and not enough variety of good foods.
Overall i feel really bad about myself, and dont like dressing up or socialising much anymore. And my partner has stopped wanting to go
places with me because of my negative self image. It isnt so much the weight that i am..
but the way i am eating which is making me dislike myself, i think about bad foods and sometimes i feel like (however discusting i am going to sound) bingeing and gorging myself til im full.
I comfort eat and it just isnt healthy. i want to have children some day but i feel that i dont want to let them see food this way, i dont want them
to have an emotional connection to food or comfort eating. I need help. this is why i am seeing this lady for 13 weeks. Its ablout me overcoming my
stress of food. I literally stress about it. And my body feels foreign. I feel discusting. I need to be in control and hopefully in time i will be :)

I panic when i wake up in the morning about my body, and i regret not treating it better. i do exercise quite a bit but my food habits ruin this.
Just standing in front of this lady made me fidget. i was wearing a tank top, and leggings and i could feel my self just tearing up inside.
It isnt so much the bulges that worry me but my perception of food and my poor body dealing with the bad things im putting in it.
I never mentioned this but i did have bulimia a 3 years ago, and it has been very embarrassing and hard for me to bring up. I just want to deal with this feeling, i want to be free from the chains over hating my body and food.
Its like i love my food but after i eat i feel guilty and angry, if it wasnt healthy i say to myself "ill eat healthy tomorrow" but life is too short.
wow im sorry to vent so much, just feel really anxious about it all.
The lady even said to me when i was vulnerable with my weight and said to me, why i was wearing a padded bra when i had to be measured, and i said "im not happy with myself without one" and that was an answer in itself, im not happy with my body shape... i cant accept it. I have size B breasts now becasue i lost weight a year back and my cup size dropped. i never gained weight back on my breasts but i did gain it on my stomache a lot and my hips. i have a muffin top.
thank you so much for writing, i just really need to vent. i feel like crying now actually. i just wish i could be the person i want to be. in time i hope i can overcome this battle. xx

Sounds to me like there's a lot of self esteem issues and quite possibly body dysmorphia and the beginnings of another eating disorder bout going on for you. It really concerns me that you are focussed so much on what the nutritionist's scales say (i.e. that they read higher). This doesn't mean you've actually put on that amount of weight, but you're interpreting it that way.

The words you used to describe yourself and your eating are absolutely hurtful. If anyone said those things to me I would cry too, and you're saying that to yourself. The sad thing is what you're posting here is probably only 1/10 what you actually say to yourself.

I cannot stress enough that I think you need to sort our emotions out (get help for it if you need to, psych treatments are covered by medicare now) and focusing on controlling food to control weight to control mood is not actually going to fix that, more likely it will make things worse for you and make you more anxious (sounds like you're already wound up pretty tight about it). You're placing so much pressure on yourself that even small choices that are even just slightly less than healthy or slightly less than what you think is what you "should" be eating are likely to be blown out of all proportion - e.g. you have 1 biscuit and suddenly you are berating yourself for being a loser and running 15km to "burn it off". That is no more healthy than 'binging' on a pk of biscuits or a piece of pizza.

Making ANY change in your life is going to be hard and you WILL make mistakes from time to time (to err is human).

And a few other things....

You seem awfully concerned about numbers but at the same time want to use your muscles and be healthy. Well guess what, muscle weight more than fat, so you're unlikely to be able to predict what you'll weigh when you're toned and fit and healthy. Hell it may even be more than you weigh now! Also, the changes in numbers can be just due to random error in the scales or when you weight etc and as I've said, if you weigh on different sets of scales the number will be different, guaranteed. That doens't mean you've gained or lost any weight. It's just because the scales aren't calibrated to each other and they will weigh heavy or lighter.

I also have to agree with dustany, you're weight seems to be in the healthy range. I would throw out your bloody scales or at least only weighing in weekly (all they're doing is making you anxious and focussed on a number which, frankly is ridiculous) and just focus on living healthily, doing some good exercise and getting some muscle tone.

Sorry to be bossy, I've always given my opinion when it's been asked for.

Instead of focussing on weightloss and the number of the scales i have listened to your advice and chose to listen to my
body and eat foods that will make me feel healthy and energised.
Thank you so much for your replies and for your advice, i will take it all on board, it means so much and gives me
a really really great perspective.

Today i had a bowl of saltana bran cereal and light milk.
A coffee with light milk.
A mandarin.
cellery sticks.
A 220g tin of baked beans with a wholemeal roll with a tiny bit of margerine.
a salad with lettuce, capsicum, tomato, and lean piece of steak.
and i did a fifty minute bike class :):):)

I am so glad that you are thinking better about this.

Considering you have previously had an eating disorder trying to lose weight again afterwards can be very hard and can lead you back to an eating disorder...it does sound like you still carry ALOT of issues in relation to your body and food. While being self critical can be an important thing it is only worthwhile if you have a somewhat realistic perspective. Which it seems you are wanting to gain and are working towards...just be honest...dont hide how you truly feel...I am sure someone on here will be ready to remind you that you are more then just a number and food is not evil :lol:

The most important thing I think any of us can learn when we start a journey to 'better ourselves' in anyway is learning to accept ourselves for who we are, accept that we are not perfect, that life is hard work but we have the right to make mistakes and be lazy sometimes.

Good luck :)
