@witch I completely plead guilty, I'm terrible without very strict boundaries with food, something I'm having to seriously work on.
Often the increase in weight seems to be water weight. If I drink a few liters of water a day Ill be lighter the next day, jeans are still a 36" rather then 42" despite having put some back on despite putting 10lbs on from my lowest. My eating habbits have changed but I've also been eating out alot recently so choosing the slightly healthier options as I always do now e.g. chicken breast and jacket potato rather then a mixed grill and chips, large burgers with bacon double cheese etc....
Checking calorie and fat content of food is something I still continue to do but when eating out mainly at gastro pub chains its that much harder :P
I gave up alcohol for lent and continued an extra 10 days. In that 50 days, I didn't change my exercise or my eating regime and i lost 6 kilos. I have started drinking again and the 6 kilos have piled back on.
So i need to figure out how to balance the booze with enough exercise to burn it off.

Bringing this thread back to life with the latet installment in my tale for a return to fitness.
You may remember me writing that I started running last Octoberdue to M&S telling me I was a 38" waist in 'smart' trousers. Even though Inwas 36" waist in jeans.
Well almost a year on, I'm comfy at 3 x 10k runs a week and went for new school trousers today. Chuffed to find I was a 34" waist again. Hoorah I though but alas I have hadto get 36" trousers due to 34" being too tight around the groin (calm down ladies) and the bum. Also tight on the thighs. This is dueto muscle developing. Oh well.
Weight wise - last October - 15st 2. Now - 13st 12. Long way to go before 12st 8.
How is everyone else doing?
I got really fed up with the low carb diet and the meals and fell off the rails for a bit putting about a stone back on. I've changed to the Harcombe diet which seems to be working really well and has a much better range of food you can eat. It's basically about avoiding processed food and not mixing carbs and protein too much in the same meal. I've lost all the weight I put back on and have lost another 6lbs beyond that I'm actually quite pleased as my skin was getting really saggy before, but this time it seems to have shrunk better with me. I'm also in sight (1 stone away) of being overweight rather than obese on the BMI scale
Exercise wise, getting a new dog has made me a lot more active, I do 2 of the 3 walks each day and play with him quite a lot, can't wait until he's old enough next year to go on some decent long walks. I'm really noticing the difference when walking as I used to come back with really sore knees and an inflamed ankle from an old injury, don't get any of that now. Another couple of stone and I may even start doing some running again which I haven't done for years!
Well done @garethedmondson and @teejay
I have put a bit on over the summer but it will soon come off - I have been to 4 high-level classes a week so the damage isnt too great.
I know what you mean about trousers though, @garethedmondson, since I have been doing lots of interval training my trousers are tighter because my 'glutes' are more developed...(buns of steel, yay!)
