Hi everyone I'm getting married December next year and went on Friday to try wedding dresses on I got really depressed and hated what I looked like.
I'm always telling myself right I need to lose weight but after a long day with my 2 year old I love nothing more than to sit down and have some Choc or cake what ever really. I don't drink or smoke so this is my thing. I think it's like a habit now everynight my son goes to bed I automatically go and get something and settle down. I'm not making excuses but I have an underactive thyriod and polycystic ovaries everything I google about my conditions say it's hard to lose weight and I have the 2 of them! What can I do I have like no will power!

Don't buy it all in the first place so it's not there? Instead bug healthy food in

Try to find something to do with your hands. When my b hands are bored I eat. So I knit/crochet/cross stitch etc. Not tremendously exciting but stops me eating.

Why don't you come and join the next low carb Bootcamp? We're starting on Monday.

Low carbing is a good way to eat because it controls your hunger, so means you have to rely less on willpower.

It's also helpful for PCOS syndrome

you need to have a whole family lifestyle change for it to really work. Its going to be so hard for you to not eat stuff that is in the house. Find healthy alternatives that your family enjoy.

Erm - who says it isn't healthy? hmm

Can u buy them stuff that you dont like/less keen on? Yes keeping busy helps take your mind off food.
