I'm a female in my late-30s and have slowly accumulated some belly fat over the last few years. I've decided I need to make some key changes for my health.
I would say I eat relatively healthy, home cooked, balanced meals but my diet falls down with sugary snacks and puddings (and too many glasses of wine).
I exercise regularly (walking and running upto 10km) and have now started to feel the extra 5-6kg I'm carrying is affecting my ability to enjoy this.
I've decided to cut out alcohol and have downloaded a food tracking app which is really helping me stay accountable - not so easy to grab a chocolate bar to eat with my cup of tea now I have to record it!
My worry is, even by cutting down on calories by eliminating sugar and alcohol, I might struggle to lose belly fat. I've heard it can be very stubborn. I'm prepared to give this new approach a few months and I'll focus mainly on my waist measurement rather than the scales.
I wondered if anyone had had similar problems and had any advice to share? Thanks! 😀
