Have you been scouring the internet, looking for the perfect way to gain an excessive amount of weight? Well search no more.... I have all the answers you need!
Seriously though, the other night I was out to dinner with The Big Man and BFF (the night before we started our diet) and I calculated that I have put on 16 kilos in the last 6 months. A very scary realisation for me.
The past 6 months has been full of turmoil and I spent the best part of it in denial about the fact that I am suffering from depression and anxiety. The main reason that I wouldn't see the doctor about it was that I didn't want to admit failure. The second biggest reason was that I felt so guilty about the way I was feeling, when I have so many good and exciting things happening in my life right now.
A major side-effect of my emotional roller coaster was that I started a crazy cycle of comfort eating and drinking, which would lead to me getting angry at myself, which would send me straight back to the fridge.
Now that I have (finally) been honest with my doctor I am on the mend mentally and I feel like I am now in a great position to get myself back in to shape. Hence the diet.
I know it is not going to be easy, but this morning when I was craving a bacon and egg mcmuffin (just typing that is making my mouth water) I worked out that if I keep up my weight gain I will break the hundred kilo barrier by Christmas this year. Right now that is definitely enough motivation for me to stay away from McDonalds!
Wish me luck!
