I've time warped back to January 1st and again weigh 560. I suppose I shouldn't feel too badly. I could have continued to binge and put on more weight. I think, as a friend put it, my "don't want to binge" muscle was strengthened by this latest binge as I don't find any value whatsoever in it anymore. Not like I used to. Instead of getting comfort, I got feeling sick to my stomach, less money in my pocket and probably a contribution to my on-going laryngitis (exacerbated by "silent" reflux.)
I've now got nine months instead of twelve to lose that 100 pounds I wanted to. It's still reachable, just a bit more challenging.
