Over the last 2-3 years I've put on some unwanted extra weight. At my lightest I was down to 128 lbs. In hind site that was probably a little too low for my frame. That was six months to a year after ending a weight loss program through work, at my heaviest I was 240 lbs. so it was quite the change. A rather nasty combination of stress/emotional/binge eating has me back up to 175+. I'd like to get back down to 150ish but one that that I'm lacking right now is accountability. I'm single and spend a lot of time at work so I don't have much time out with friends. I still make it to the gym about 5 days a week, right now it's what keeps me sane. I know I won't exercise myself thin and that diet is the key, but some how I can't keep myself accountable. I'll do OK for a short while, then boom, down goes a dozen cookies and a HUGE load of guilt. I know, even at the time, that it is counterproductive to my goal. Since I'm single and spend most of my time either at work or home alone for a few hours each night how can I keep myself accountable for my eating? Has anyone else had this or a similar problem, how'd you manage to get through it?
