This Monday I started the 12 week plan, so I'm 3 days in and I'm quickly starting to realise that my diet is nowhere near as good as I thought! I had no idea how many calories certain foods have that I thought were good for me and don't get me started on eating out!
Does anyone have go to restaurants and dishes to keep the calorie count low? I'm trying to cut down on how often I eat out so alternative socialising activity ideas are also welcome (but I know food will not be able to disappear entirely).
In good news although I'm not expecting much weight loss this week I'm feeling extremely motivated as I can now see where I need to change things to work towards a healthier lifestyle and it feels really achievable I am also already really feeling the support from this forum, so thanks!
Set myself the goal of 4 pounds loss by 1st Jan (I think this is realistic when you factor in Christmas) and then a stone and a half total by 1st April just in time for a trip prague for my Mum's 60th birthday I'm going for the slow and steady approach as I just spiral out of control if I fail and I think I have enough wiggle room for some bad weeks with this goal.
