I’ve been in this vicious cycle of loss 5 pounds gain 5 pounds for about five years now. The pattern goes – eat well, no sugar, no flour, stay on plan followed up with exercise. I run, Jazzercise and yoga at least five days a week. Then the fall off – I’ll have a horrible binge, my mind says eat everything you don’t normally eat today cause tomorrow you’re back on the wagon. I will eat until I’m sick. The next day I will feel disgusted that I worked so hard all week and then blow in one day. I’m 43 hormones are changing. The scale today said 208.6. I cried and then joined scholars.
