Moving Diaries: The Weight Gain

It’s basically no secret that when you move countries and uproot your life you’re bound to lose your routine..

Losing this routine meant not being able to gym as much and not eating as healthy as I would have liked. As most of you know of my history with my battle against my eating disorder this has been one of the biggest challenges for me..

I tend to be the kind or person who binge eats when I get stressed.. and of course the moves has bought so much stress that it’s all I seem to do.. I snack and binge and snack and binge, it all seems to be a never ending cycle.

The last week or so I’ve recently gotten back into one of those periods where I feel huge.. I look in the mirror and I’m horrified at how I look, I’m angry that I’ve let myself get this far, why haven’t I gotten back into my routine?

Well that’s the thing, I feel lost and unsettled and I’m at the point where I feel like I don’t even know what I should be eating anymore. Have you ever felt like this? If the answer is yes then you’ll know how terrible it feels.

I’ve come to terms with the weight gain and I’m at a point where I need to change. This change will come with many challenges but at the end of the day it’s all about how badly you want it.

I’ve spent hours on the internet googling what’s the best diet, what I must eat for weight loss and it’s no surprise that it’s all driving me absolutely mental.

I’m sure there are so many of you out there that are going through the exact same thing. We all then to personal trainers and Dieticians but how do we know who to trust?

Every time I feel like I’m drowning and I’ll never be able to pick myself up I remember that I’m not in this alone and at the end of the day I decide what to eat and what not to eat.

My biggest problem is about finding the balance, the balance between not depriving myself and the balance between living my life.

I’ve decided that it’s time I make the change and take control of my eating before it’s too late and before I lose myself completely.

Do you have any tips for managing this balance? And how to know what to eat? If you do send me a message and we can explore the different options together.

I look forward to bringing you all along on this journey.

Yours faithfully,
