I recently lost seven kilos and boy was I smug about it. I felt triumphant, like I had finally figured out how to lose weight and keep it off – for the 700th time. All my problems were solved.
Now, I thought, I could finally move on from weight issues and truly enjoy life (as well as the occasional block of Cadbury’s pineapple chocolate, of course).
And damn you Cadbury’s for inveting that particular flavour, you motherf**kers.
It didn’t take long for me to re-gain five of those seven kilos, and I started questioning myself once again:
Why does my goal weight only last a day?
Why can’t I stop eating when I’m no longer hungry?
