Forum home Weight loss for your wedding

Eating like a horse................

I started well and the weight was dropping off, but now all of a sudden i seem to be eating anything and everything, especially chocolate!!! (damn the person who invented that!)

Is anyone else just piggin out and eating junk just for the sake of it but doesnt know why or am i the only one?!?!?

    *raises hand*

    Me too!

    I'd thought that the prospect of being an overweight bride would have been incentive enough. But apparently not, I'm still shovelling in junk food.

    I always eat more in the winter months. Its a symptom of SAD (seasonal affective disorder). I hate it because my moods drop - I get really irritable and over eat. I am using light box therapy and its helping but I really do struggle with my weight! I know I can lose it in the spring but I would really rather not put it on in the first place! :\)

    I was fine until I bought my dress, I had lost 1 1/2 stone. The dress made me look thinner with a corset back now I can't stop eating.
  • Me too!! I had lost 2 stone before i met h2b then stopped losing it, so knew i wanted to loose more to get smaller dress and look thinner and just keep eating and eating, even during the summer so don't have the excuse of it being winter. keeping weight steady trying really hard now.

    thank god its not just me then, i was losing weight until we got theory

    1. its the suns fault it ain't around enough

    2. Planning a wedding is stressful so i turn to chocolate for comfort (yea right)! lol

    3. i like chocolate

    4. chocolate is my friend

    5. Chocolate makes me feel better LOL

    ok ok i'm just looking for excuses

  • Well, I don't really eat chocolate but Good Lordie give me crisps and I'll be your friend for life. Just having one bag seems positively boring, so the whole six pack has to go in one sitting. It's disgraceful.

    My theory is that when you are on a diet and trying to lose weight, your brain kicks into 'cravings' mode and just goes bananas. It just makes you obsess about something until you give in and scoff it, but you don't just have one - oh no no no no no - HUGE amounts all at once.

    I've found Chinese Rice Crackers that are dead low in fat and kind of almost sort of are a little bit like crisps and that seems to do the trick, but at the hint of any stress or - heaven forbid - boredom, I'm off again.
