Okay, so after a couple of weeks, I have decided I am actually going to come off of SW and go this t'ing alone. Long story short, I just feel like I am being told what I can and cannot eat and what I must eat on a daily basis. It's making me feel restrictive and deprived, which I know backfires eventually, so I want to quit whilst I'm ahead. I don't feel comfortable being told by someone who is getting paid to sell a product, what I can and can't eat.
My housemate has lost .5 stone on it already, but it just really isn't working for me. And I think unrealistically, she has had to massively sacrifice her social life for it... Sacrifices are to be expected, but I don't think that's very flexible or enjoyable.
Also with Christmas coming up, I actually want to enjoy it (in moderations of course, not going stupid) and not have to think about how many syns are in my roast parsnips, or whether the potatoes have been done in frylight or not. I think it's just ruining food for me a lot. Or even just a meal when I go to my parents!
So I know a lot of people are on their journey, met their targets or just started; but I was hoping for some of their best tips that have worked for them. You can read all the top tips online, but I feel like hearing them from people who have been through it all and found things that work (I know not everything works for everyone) is far better and possibly get some odd, outside the box tips.
Want to kick my bum in to gear, I would really love to lose at least .5 stone for Chirstmas to get me started - I have a long way to go for the target I've set myself, but I actually want to do it now, I've been saying I want to lose weight for like 4 years, instead I've put on weight and just keep complaining about it - typical.
So what are your tips - I'm thinking of making posters to put up through the kitchen and my room (sure my housemate will love them haha)
I forgot to weigh in this morning, so I'm going to make my weigh in days Tuesday mornings. So I shall weigh, measure and do my photo tomorrow and start a fresh, because my weight is my problem and I'm the only one who can do something about it!!
