Hi Everyone, I'm new to this site and hoping to get some inspiration, tips and advice. I'm 39 and been struggling with my weight since I was about 16. I've done every diet I can think of. I'm fully aware of the things I should and shouldn't eat, portion sizes, drinking water, eating slower, exercise...etc. My problem is willpower, and the lack of it. I tend to follow a healthy eating plan for around 3-4 weeks. Then something gets in the way and, probably like many people, I say to myself I'll start again tomorrow. However, my tomorrow is usually a lot longer than 24 hours away! Then I struggle to start from square 1.....again.
I suffer from high blood pressure and palpitations and I'm finding my knees and back are aching a lot more. I know my weight isn't helping. I would like to lose around 4 stone to become a more healthy 10 stone and then take it from there.
My downfalls are crisp and munchy things. I'm a snacker. If I didn't have a family to cook for I would just snack rather than eat a full meal. I think if I had good ideas of things I can snack on n munch (not carrot sticks!) I would probably be able to follow a healthy eating plan more easily.
Any ideas anyone to stop this little snacker getting any fatter?
