    Sorry to hear you are feeling down about it all. It's too bad it is so easy to put weight on, and so hard to take it off! Quick diets aren't a good choice for long term weight loss as most will gain back.

    Not that I take my own advice, but try small changes. If you drink a lot of soda or juice, switch out 1-2 a day for water (like to infuse water with fruit and have that ready in my fridge). If you eat a lot of sweets, have some fruit prepped and grab some pineapple or a banana instead of a cookie as it will give you the sweet rush without as many calories. If you can make 1 change a week, you can have something you can be proud of, and don't focus so much on the weight but making a healthy change.

    I definitely find that prepping food and making a menu for the week is necessary. Otherwise it comes time for dinner and instead of a nice healthy veggie and protein we throw in a frozen pizza and I feel like my whole week of healthy eating is out the window!

    Good luck, let me know how things go!

    so iv not eaten anything today because I was ill with a stomach bug last night
    I feel this would be an ideal time to start so I am going to try to do a detox of only water for a few days and then start with the fresh products veg potato and salads I cant weigh myself at the moment my scales broke so I will give it a few weeks but I think I am about 14 stone and I want to be 10
    i am so busy running around after my brood i don't have much time to think about food but have to get the snacks in for the children so ill just have to resist the midnight temptations

    The best thing to do, in my experience, is not to focus too much on numbers and the times where you don't pick the best thing! If you focus on those things, you get discouraged. It's hard, but if you can train yourself to focus on your successes, and feeling good/healthy, it will help you a lot!

    Another important thing, to me, is accepting your body. Despite what society tries to tell us, there's nothing wrong or bad with any body, and your body knows how to be healthy and what's best.

    self love/care is one of the hardest parts, but it's the most important one.

    Do you have any health issues related to bring overweight? Bring healthy rather than skinny is better motivation for me. I've given up on wearing a bikini, but trying to manage cardiac health with a family history of heart disease.

    I'm still relatively young and I'm trying to get ahead of the weight gain that will come when I hopefully get pregnant.

    I'd try not to worry about the weight but more about how you feel. I think you'll find as you start eating healthier you can feel it when you don't. Like, today I feel like crappy after eating a giant soft pretzel and cheese when out with friends last night and a donut this morning. It's not that I feel bad for eating it, but my body is like what the heck? I did so good all week eating well, had veggie and beef soup prepped, eggs for breakfast, peanut butter power balls (look them up if you haven't had them, taste like cookie dough to me!). Sometimes feeling icky is worth it (like the pretzel, not so much the donut!)

    Most people have a cheat day or a cheat meal. Or, I have some friends doing Weight Warchers and they pack a meal if they are going somewhere so they know how many Weight Watchers pints they are eating.

    I'm having a off week so far myself. Have a busy week and didn't prepare. Eating cookies now 😞
