Things possibly aren't as bad as they seem :-) I have lost 5 - 7 lbs in the last month, and in the last couple of weeks have got my eating more under control. I just try not to think about real food and drink my slim fast or CD sachets.
I feel like I am constantly on a diet, but at least I am getting somewhere, compared to the nowhere I'd been for the last couple of yrs.
A band is not a magic wand. It's not even a magic band. But every little helps
Sorry if this blog sounds so whingey and depressed, I am trying to be honest with weight and how it affects my life.
But the days I move down 0.3 of a pound I feel quite positive.
I also found photos of me from this time last yr, and I was shocked at how fat I was (and I never keep the really awful fat pictures; I must have thought at the time I looked ok)
I definitely look better. I havent 'arrived, but hopefully I'll keep going in the right direction.
