Today I have completed my fourth week of my health eating plan! This is my first post as was unsure of what to write.
I have lost so far 8.3lbs and half an inch off my waist. So so happy about this as Iv tried many "diets" in the past and have lost weight far quicker but have felt terrible like I'd deprived myself of everything that I loved. So of course as soon as I started eating all the bad stuff again I just put all the weight on again.
I'm not calling this a diet, it is my long term healthy eating. I use the change4life app to plan and cook all my meals. I'm trying new things all the time, I eat a lot more fruit and veg than I ever did. Planning is the key, On Sunday's I sit down and plan every meal for the week. I leave Sunday blank if I wish to have a take away or go for a roast dinner with my parents. I don't want to restrict myself too much.
I used to binge eat a lot on my days off, I would eat anything and everything to the point of making myself feel sick but it still wasn't enough. So my hardest days are when I'm at home on my own. I'm still doing well though and I havnt had a binge day since I started. Again, it's all about planning, it helps my will power stay strong as I'm always in control.
The hardest thing im finding is trying to do more exercise. I am on my feet all day at work and average about 11000steps a day. By the time I've got home and cooked dinner it's time for bed already. I try and do a 45min exercise DVD on my days off but find I always have other things like house work etc to do or I just can't be bothered having been on my feet all week. Any thoughts on that would be great. I'm off out now for a walk with the other half as it's such a nice sunny day! I hope I havnt gone on too long, this is all new to me! Lol 😊
