Because of my long history of craving and binging I have never really felt slim and normal. I have always had the concern that a binge was only a day away and I would start putting back the weight that I had fought so hard to lose.
Because, by adding fat back into my diet, I have cured the binging episodes I now feel that I am on the right course to normalise my body weight. I dont feel that next week I am going to be 7lbs more than I am today.
However this does seem to be a slower process than I am used to. Its a hare and a tortoise method of dieting.
Is it better to be a tortoise and keep the weight off or a hare where the weight drops rapidly but comes back equally rapidly!
I do hope I will have dropped another lb by the end of the month. Just to give me the encouragement of getting under 200lb.
Funny thing is I feel slimer at this weight than I did when I was 170lbs last year. Something to do with being in control of my eating habits for the first time in my life.
