In which my brain broke.

After that amazing 6lb weight loss, wouldn't any normal person be inspired enough to keep up the momentum? You'd think! Sadly, my wiring is all wrong and so that wasn't what happened. Instead I have struggled to find the plot. First of all there was more camping which meant I let things slide a bit. On our return I did battle like mad to recover from any harm done, and managed a half pound gain. And then this whole week I have just struggled constantly to make the right choices.

And then, if we needed any further evidence that there is something not working as it should in my brain, an hour before weigh in I went to MacDonalds and out of my mouth spilled an order for a sweet chilli chicken deli sandwhich, fries and a Mars milkshake. What the hell was I thinking?!

If anyone out there has any idea what would drive someone to do that, an hour before weigh in, please please enlighten me because I don't know!

By some miracle I got away with a maintain this week but I'm going to have to work damn hard to avoid converting it to a gain next week. I'm doing a speed food challenge which I know can have amazing results, but the main result I desire is control.

Complacancy?
(have I even spelled that right?)

This is my problem. I do really well, but it causes me to lose motivation! It's also the same reason why I can lose weight when I am fat, but the moment I get near to my desired body shape I just can't be bothered any more.

I understand your frustration. I think maybe it might help if you can get a particular image in your head to hang on to when decisions need to be made.
Deadlines can work too, but can be too much pressure for some.

I hope that you (and I!) do better this week Wendy.
