Last year I started the 12 week NHS diet, lost half a stone in a month but then moved in with my partner and all my bad habits slowly crept back as did my weight, in fact I sadly now weigh more than I did when I started the first time. This week after getting tired and fed up of none of clothes fitting me properly I have started back on it. I don't want to loose lots of weight quickly I want to slowly change all my habits and make healthy eating and exercising a habit not a diet. I have cut out sugary drinks and snacks and started drinking more water and also I pile my plate to high so I have cut down portion sizes. My biggest problem is I am not a huge fan of veg - it is my least favorite part of a meal and I really don't like the texture of fruit (and homemade smoothies aren't a quick option) and I love pasta, bread etc! I have read lots of you are cutting out carbs. Can I cut down on them (eg wholemeal pasta) or ideally should I cut them out completely which if I am being honest I know I will struggle with. It's finding that balance of making it achievable for myself but also not convincing myself I am doing my best when I should be doing more.
If anyone has any ideas, suggestions please pass them my way!
Anyway apologies for the long post, looking through everyone's posts is really motivating me and hopefully will help keep me on track.
