Somewhat disappointing lunch out at my parents’ village pub. I know I said no oil or fat but still ... this is grilled salmon, new potatoes and seasonal veg??? 😂 sad Sunday lunch. Feel like chef maybe had the footie on!
Also thought today: a lot of the target/massive loss people here seem to get on the scales every day or more often. I have been that person. I went from 14st to 7st, doing a mix of crazy Dukan diet and 5:2 plus purging through exercise. It nearly killed me, physically and emotionally. I wasted three years of my life obsessed with what went in my mouth and came out, and was ruled by those numbers. I’d rather stay fat as now (after bingeing and eventually therapy and meds to help the ED I had developed led to gain and then angry fuck you to the diet industry weight) than have those obsessive thoughts again. It’s why I chose #slimmingworld - to lose safely, keep eating just do it better, and only weigh in at group once a week, and keep it balanced. I love this insta community, but I find it triggering when I see those people who I worry are suffering underneath with that fear like I was, that obsessional pride in or terror of the numbers. So PLEASE try to remember to try to love yourself at all sizes, and love yourself down to slimmer, healthier, in a kind way, rather than hating yourself there. And if you can’t do that, cos god I know it’s hard, please ask your friends, talk to those around you and if you ever feel you’re slipping from focus to obsession, tell your consultant!
