I dropped off the forums a while ago since I was struggling to reach my target (I’d lost 2.5stone in 2016/17 but found it difficult to remain below 10st). I’ve generally been at 10st + a few pounds but just recently I was heading too close to 11st. Managed to nip that in the bud and am currently at 10st 10lb. I’m at the stage where I know I ought to do something but haven’t quite built up the fire to seriously do anything about it. I seem to be able to eat BSD-wise but then I spoil things by scoffing things I shouldn’t (usually when I’m feeling lousy – yes, I comfort eat).
However, I’ve just finished work (taken voluntary redundancy) and have a whole week to occupy so I’m planning a taster session in Nordic Walking, as well as my usual swimming/pilates. Work at my allotment is picking up now. So hopefully I’ve got exercise covered.
I’ve got a whole load of family history to write up so hopefully that will provide distraction from thoughts of ice cream, crisps, etc.
So I’m posting this message to see how other long-term BSD-ers are doing and how you cope with maintaining enthusiasm long-term.
