You are definitely not alone in this. I’ve put weight since i’ve started the course as I am making the same mistake time and again. Once I do something right on the programme and happy with it I totally forget about “for now” principle and want to have more of a good thing and forever. Hence I make plans to abstain from carbs altogether, get rebellious and consume all cakes I can put my hands on. But, I keep trying and for once, I come back to my senses quicker and I see where I can be wiser and not to want too much of myself.
I think I know the Choice and Times and Plans sections by heart now: i’ve listened to Gillian speak on the topics endlessly. Trust it will work for me on a continuous basis once.
