stacked on 15kg this year!

Postby lissak » Tue Oct 05, 2010 7:22 pm

This year I have managed to stack on 15kg! I used to be 53 kg, and today am 68kg. I have stacked it one from starting shift work, getting lazy and stuffing my face with kfc. I think as I started putting on my weight I really started to feel bad about myself so I would order and eat two pizzas or a huge kfc meal and mcdonalds to make myself feel better. Lately my self esteem has gotten so bad I can barley stand to go out in public.
I know all of this weight is bad weight, and I'm desperate to get it back off again! I'm using meal replacement shakes for breakfast and lunch and having a healthy dinner.
Today I went for two walks and danced around my loungeroom for a half hour and I feel fantastic! I'm drinking loads of water as well and feel really really good today. I guess I'm just looking for support to help me ward off eating when I feel bad because clearly that is not going to help haha. I'm worried the weight will be very hard to lose and I'm worried about not being able to stick with it if I don't see some fast results.
Thanks for reading :)

There's a good section on emotional eating in the forums, well worth flicking through the message threads there.

Expecting fast results is what tripped me up the last few times i attempted to lose weight. I eventually learnt that as long as energy expenditure exceeds energy consumption then over a period of time fat will be lost because it is the main store of energy. Some energy will be extracted from other body tissues and organs, but that's limited to the short term.

One thing that may help is that if you're ever feeling on the verge of giving up, tell yourself that your mind is the boss, not the body, and that you'll stick it out the rest of today and perhaps change tomorrow. The next day tell yourself the same thing - "Until tomorrow!". And then the same again the following day. As the saying goes, "Tomorrow never comes."

Hi Lissak, welcome to the forum!
Been there, done that, bought the t-shirt! :wink:
Keep at it, like Badger said, it's all about energy in v energy out. Maybe start keeping a diary so you know when you're eating and what happens around those times. If you know what your triggers are you can make a plan to combat the eating around those times.

So for me, my triggers are working on my thesis (quick, find a muffin to eat so you don't have to think so hard!) and being home alone (dreaming up food is a good way to amuse yourself, right?). So I made a plan to work with both those time periods. Sometimes it works, sometimes it needs some tweaking, but I'm getting there. :wink: :D

Good luck with it.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Hey there, Jacqui here. Don't worry honey, I'm not far off having done pretty much exactly what you have. I've stacked on 11kg this year eating all the food I've never felt like eating pretty much my whole life thus far! The only thing I've managed to do is stuff my face after a nasty breakup and now I feel terrible. I weighed a great 64kg at the beginning of the year and now I'm up to 75kg. It's the heaviest I've ever been and I'm not liking it one bit. I can only fit into 5% of my wardrobe and now summer is practically here!

I would love to provide you with some support if you can do the same for me! :) My problem at the moment is refined sugar. I've managed to kick all the fatty takeaway junk (which to be honest was never really my weakness anyway) but the sugar is still the issue. I've always had a problem with chocolate and it just doesn't seem to be relenting!

I've just joined a new women's gym as I got sick of my old one (filled to the brim with bodybuilder guys) and now have a weekly food coach too. I've started already and am feeling like the only way is forward. Goodbye to this flabby Jacqui and hello to the old trim, taught and terrific one!
