Yes so far it's been great .. I just want to hit that 12 week barrier . Going from eating crap and takeaways all. The time to now eating healthy has been really hard change .. But I've got my goals in site and that and my children keep me going .

Good morning 😀 glad you've got lots of motivation as now your half way there!! It is really hard in the beginning but it does get easier. I had a Chinese last wk and only ate a small amount but felt really greasy and sick. It was a horrible feeling. Your body and taste buds change for the better 😆 I'm on wk 14 (of 12!!! But it's for life not just 12wks) and have lost just over a stone and a half only 6lb to go to get to my goal. So it can be done. Stick with the plan and keep moving and you'll be running rings around your kids 🏃 good luck. Claire x

The thing about takeaways .. I heard the best bit of advice that has always stuck in my head and going forward with the diet..

That when you eat takeaway your going to hurt .. ( Now I don't no about yourself but in morning and next day my stomach hurts where it's cramping to process the food then hurt to go to the toilet ) .. That your hurting your stomach and you are in pain from eating the takeaway . Now do you want that every time you eat takeaway ? And that last 3/4 days I've done this my stomach has been so much better no pain whatsoever

Totally agree. That will be my last take away. I think you can make far tastier and healthier curry's, chow mein, Fish and chips etc at home for a fraction of the price and a fraction of the fat and hurting tummys. True how your body's shouting NO!!! We want it saying YES I'm a temple !?! We only have one and we need to look after it, maybe 36yrs to late but we have to try for our kids sake 😀

If I add the equivalent of half a carton of yog to my porridge it fills me up even more. Especially if it is a tbsp of 0% fat plain Greek yogurt.

I have burger and chips once a week

and healthy meals the rest of the week ;0)

And 1 bar 40g choc a day ... I’ve lost weight with walking and moving as much as poss and light non obsessive gym sessions ... healthy snacks fruit nuts full fat yogurt ... hardly any wheat or sugar

Veg etc ... there are loads of healthy smoothie recipes out there on the net ;0)

Healthy eating and drinking websites are our oyster ;0) ( as the saying goes lol ) surveys have shown that if people allow themsleves a little of what they enjoy such as some choc everyday they are more likely to stay resolute ;0)

And I don’t call my burger and chips a cheat meal ... I just eat it because I love it but mindful it’s not healthy to eat such stuff most days of the week and i feel so much healthier mentally and physically ... my sons wedding Saturday and that had motivated me a lot ;0)
