week 2

Hi, I can not believe I have completed a week on this plan. I have had my ups and downs but I am hanging on in with the help of different people in the community and I thank you for your support.

I went swimming on Monday and loved it I have been meaning to go all month but haven't so I was so chuffed when I finally done it got on the scales and found I have lost 2lb 6oz. I find with swimming that is a good exercise to help with any water retention. I am looking forward to going next week.

I am still finding the calorie counting a bit difficult and finding the time to record it, I am not doing this on the NHS page as I am not sure were to find it, I print a page off and do it by hand is that what everybody else does? I am sure there must be an easier way and one I could get on with.

I am still wanting to pick after lunch/evening and would like to stop I find the want to do it so over powering, if I can give that up I am sure that would help me even more, it has become an habit and one hard to break. I wish you all well and hope you are getting on ok x

Hey well done on your first week! This site has been enormous about of support for me. For calorie counting i use an app called myfitnesspal on my phone its great you can search the database and scan items only had 1 or 2 that i couldnt find so far. As its on my phone its always to hand and i can plan meals ahead

With snacking ive found drinking water helps aswell as distracting myself. But at work or when bored at home i will have clementines to hand 35cal for a medium size one, or ill dice up cucumber, red pepper and spring onion to dip in hummous. Also you could find some low cal like lettuce? A little dressing and seasoning pretty filling as about 50g lettuce is only about 5-8cals. So wont hurt to pick at either. But i find distraction works well, especially housework as dont want to pick when i can smell cleaning chemicals lol.

Good luck and keep up the good work


Thank you and thank you for tips it is always good to find out what other people do.
