Starting My Diet

Starting My Diet

I feel determind to try and shift some weight. My problem is 'comfort eating', and unscheduled snacks of the the wrong kind.

Logically if I could just stick to he healthy meals that I make then weight loss would be possible. But I seem to have have zero willpower at the moment.

I know I would feel healthier and confident if I could lose 2 stone.

Hello Grace! I understand how comfort eating can be a problem. I try to seek comforting things which aren't fattening, for example, a nice hot cup of herbal tea. Very comforting, no calories! Also, are you exercising? Since I began exercising regularly I found I have much less anxiety and therefore less cravings for snacks. Hope this helps!
