Have almost reached 3 weeks, with my 3rd weigh in tomorrow. I have maintained the 15-20 min walk into work and have walked back on two occasions. Managed most of the week to avoid snacking, although gave in to fruit cake one evening.
A good motivator, for staying on track for me came from watching this weeks Horizon program. Having watched all three slots i have taken the following tips.
More veg less potato on my plate
Slowing down when eating by having a drink of water during my meal
And when tempted to have a unhealthy snack focus my mind on imagining myself at my daughters wedding in a smart dress, stood next to my hubby (who is at his ideal weight!!!) at the front of the group in the wedding photos rather than hiding at the back.
first major test of this will be tonight as we are at my nieces 18th birthday party. I am driving which will assist in the no alcohol but the buffet will be a test. With weigh in tomorrow and wanting to see number 11 rather than number 12 on the stone marker is tonight's immediate motivating factor.
