Well, I just viewed holiday photos and I am in utter bloody shock! A combination of giving up smoking 6 months ago and depression/emotional eating after mc 2 months ago... I now need to seriously lose some weight. We have been TTC this month but I realistically think I need to do this first. Anyone out there in same boat and wants to partner up for support?
Bloody hell that is brilliant! Go you! How did you do it? I live in China so WW meetings are out but would love to hear some tips... I am aiming for a stone before the summer holidays start then I ll see. I have weighed myself and will measure myself tomorrow when I find the tape measure. I was going to aim for some sort of exercise everyday to 'kickstart' it plus winter has just ended and I have been gagging to get outside, in the sun for ages. I went for 40 minute walk today...yah! What exercise do you do? I think that is going to be my major thing, actually getting off my bum and doing something! You can nag me if I don't!
When I weighed myself on wednesday(my weigh day) I had lost 2 lbs! Total of 7.8 lbs lost.
A few tips I have found so far:
1- Substitute fat with flavor, Mrs. Dash is awesome...
2- Eat smaller portions. One tip I read somewhere is when you go out to eat, put half of your meal in a to go container right when you get it. That way you have lunch for tomorrow.
3-Eat slowly, and savor every bite. Put your fork, or food, down between bites. I watched an episode of "I can make you thin" once and he said overweight(fat) people think of food all the time, except when they're eating it. After I heard that I realized it's so true!
4- When you feel hungry, have a glass of water and reevaluate. Some people think they're hungry sometimes, when they're really thirsty. Sometimes I'll feel hungry after I just ate, and I'll drink a glass of water and I feel full again.
5- Eat when you're hungry, stop when you're full.
I don't remember where I heard all of those. All I can say is I think they're genius:P ... Sometimes I don't follow all of those tips, but I'm working on it...
