Today I've been able to step back and look at the events of the last week through objective eyes and emotional detachment. Its been enlightening.

More and more I realise that life is like a roller coaster ride. I enjoy my more than fair share of highs but I'm not immune to the lows. They will come and they will hit hard. It pays to have your wits and senses about you so that you can deal with them smartly and effectively. But of course sometimes you cant see the forest for the trees.

Having recently seen the end of a particularly bad low I'm back in touch with my strong foundation of understanding how MY Binge Monster works. It'll be different for everyone but knowing me and mine is what matters to me. I feel secure now back in that place where I can look within and find my answers. I've said it before and I'll say it again. The answers are not in a diet book, nor a whizz bang program written by a top notch PT. Dont get me wrong, I'm not knocking PTs as I've worked with some very good ones but in the end I knew that achieving long term success in weight loss and weight management would boil down to me and me alone. I had to work it out for myself and even now I continue to keep working on it. Another thing I've learnt is that complacency = failure. If I get too relaxed about eating whatever then I know my weight creeps up. I run a lot but can vouch for the statement that "you cant out-train poor nutrition".

I have a plan brewing that I'm pondering over the next few days and when ready I'll post about it. Its quite exciting to see just how it pans out, all things considered.

Good night all

"you cant out-train poor nutrition".

I agree with this Magda and have found it to be the case so many times. It has now come to head that I have to sort out my nutrition because I don't have the time to be able to train as hard as I was, when riding to work.

Thank you for all your information. I have decided tomorrow night I will go and see a gp as scary as that is for me :)

Thanks Pip.

Kristy it wont be as daunting as you think. The firts step is always the hardest but once you take it, the 2nd is easier and then it gets easier still. There were times that I didnt want to go to my appointment but I did and those were the best sessions that I got the most out of.

Good luck!!
