Oh, and alcohol.
I tend to have no 'off' switch with either!
I think its important not to have an 'off' switch because then you'd have a different health problem again. I'm *trying* really hard to master this 'balance' thing. I'm trying to exercise more so I can have small portions now and then of the things I love.
I've had wine once this week, which is excellent for me because I was having wine with dinner almost every night until this week. I've done the gung ho thing before where i've eliminated everything bad. I lasted for about a year, lost LOTS of weight and then put it all back on, and more. I've realised there are more important things in life than wanting to be a size eight, when I was never going to be a size eight naturally anyway. Having said that, I'm not comfortable being a size 14 anymore. I could be a size 12, maybe a ten in some clothes if I just made smarter food choices and exercised a little more. I want to lose the 10kg that it will take to get me back down to a size 12 but I don't want to do it overnight. I want it to be one of those progressional things that I do over time. That way, I wont deprive myself of anything and then I wont binge or gorge on things I shouldnt.
