Binge With The Band

Unfortunately you can still binge if you try really hard when you have a lap band... it just hurts a hell of a lot more!

I am in New Zealand for a couple of weeks doing a one-off freelance job for my old company and I am now 100% positive that I made the right decision to quit my job. The moment I got here I started stuffing my mouth with food, and if I am not eating, I am obsessing about eating.

I always thought I had a problem with controlling my eating while I travel, but I think my recent 3 month holiday where I only gained 2 kilos proves that isn't the case. It's not travelling that makes me want to overeat, it is unhappiness.

I have felt nothing but scared, stressed and inadequate from the second I started this job and when I travel the stress increases, the loneliness amplifies and the mini bar is free- which is a dangerous combination.

After this freelance job has finished I am so ready for a fresh start.


  1. Hi, where abouts in New Zealand are you?? I am in ChCh and would love to catch up if you down here!!

  2. Hang in there.. you will find the perfect job eventually.

  3. At least you can acknowledge what's causing it. Suck it up for the 2 weeks and then don't look back!!! BTW - loved your travel photos :)

  4. Hang in there hun! Just get through the next few weeks and everything will be fine. Thinking of you

  5. I hope you get a chance to enjoy a little of your travels. I also end up overeating and eating junk on vacation as well. It is a tough habit to break. *Maria*-Blogger from "This one time at Band Camp..."
