Following (Diet) Resources

AmzRy
AmzRyRestart April 2020

I've struggled for about 3 years with rapid weight gain/loss for various reasons (medication , fatigue, flare ups, dislocations/subluxations,bowel problems, mental health, diet and binge eating, drinking) .

I feel little more better around control over my eating habits now and emotional control. I am now following WW and Juiceplus .

I felt a bit comprehensive following both but it is working ok .

Breakfast I have shake and capsules . Snacks and other meals are WW.

Taking each day at a time is important.

I'm using theses as resources but I know it comes to how I feel as well.

I now understand my emotions and reactions on impulsive and food intake. I have EUPD so can struggle on emotion regulation and much more. (I had to dig deep around Psychology around food but I managed to understand these and now working on them with healthier coping mechanisms.

I really enjoy WW. I personally feel they are an all rounded company look after mental health as well as physical health to. They do not restrict what I can or can't eat however limit the proportions.

They helped me make healthier choice and still have some special treats if I feel I would like one.

They provide physical and mental activities to help around food/wellbeing . Headspace is brilliant (meditation and mindfulness) and the ww app is good tracking foods and having support connection with others. Fiton for exercise and can be adapted to meet physical health/disabilities needs also.

I'm feeling a lot more in control with theses Resources helping me . I don't feel I'm on a so called 'diet' with WW however the shakes Ido feel some restriction. This is why I have one shake a day instead of 2. I feel this is working in my routine and will weight myself regularly to keep record. I've limited myself to weight once a week (I was doing 4 times a week before) and plus you get points on the app for weekly weighing.

I now understand once week you may not lose anything or might gain. And I now know 2lb loss a week is good rate. Losing weight take time. Rapid loss may result in gaining back as fast as you lost it. (which is very relatable)

Also i've read an article about measurements as well as weighting as weighting can have so many factors (including water tension ,muscle ,bone ect ect )

The points are motivating on the app even if it might be a few lbs gain that week tracking it still shows effort/consistency. It's showing you put in effort to make these personal steps and achieving those goals. I feel Dedicated time and effort is big factor in losing weight and I feel more happier I'm doing something about it. Its not just focus on 'food' it's a lifestyle. I lost happiness everywhere in life due to my weight and other issue.

Now...... I'm in much a better mind frame improving all around well being and health.

Things are beginning to look more clear and Remembering I'm not alone.

Thanks a lot of reading.

Thank you. My story is I need to lose at least 40 lbs. I was thin in high school. I had been overweight for a few years until I met doctor. She had given me hints at what to do eating, walking, exercising. When I lost the weight I had started playing softball again. So five years later my doctor had left the clinic where I went to. She left for another health facility in March. She pulled me aside and said I had done a wonderful job with my health. Fast forward 10 months. I decided I look pretty with all my weight put back on. I'm so sexy now it hurts. Lol. So now my blood pressure has been high, my body is disarray. I don't eat well (never had) and I don't walk anymore (too flipping cold). My friend wants the old me back being healthier.

So any suggestions will help. I lost my cheerleader so maybe it's time to find some or a cheerleader to cheer me on.

Thank you.

Welcome to this amazing forum. I suggest you spend some time clicking about to find your way around. It's easier if you have a lap-top as there are several threads. If you’re using another device I strongly suggest that you use the web page as opposed to the app at least until you know your way around.

Have a good read of the pinned post “Welcome Newbies” and follow every thread.

Here’s the link to the pinned posts, healthunlocked.com/nhsweigh...

Here’s the link for the “Tour” of the forum. If you haven’t already taken it.

healthunlocked.com/?tour=true

I strongly suggest you read and contribute to the Daily Diary and participate in a Weekly Weigh in.

You will find there's loads of tips about better eating, from other members. Sharing your daily menu not only helps you stay committed, it can help other members too.

Good luck I hope to "see " you around.
