I Guess I DoThey say the first step to recovery is admitting it...
I have a fear of becoming fat. And I let that completely rule my eating habits.
I have still yet to hit the 10 Stone mark on the scales. At the moment, I'm sort of yo-yo-ing...I'll have a day or two of eating whatever I feel like, and then spend the next few days cutting back until I drop 4 or 5 lbs again. I guess it's because that 10 is such an easy target. It's double figures. Once I break double figures, that's it, there's no concrete restriction for my weight. After all, what would be next? triple figures?
I don't know....Both of my parents are kind of overweight, and they both used to be really slim when they were younger. And they've both told me how easy it was to fall into the trap of gaining weight, that once you start it's so hard to stop. I don't want to learn that lesson for myself.
I don't know! There's just something deep down in me that dreads the idea of putting on weight.
