Need to lose lots of weight(6 Posts)
hi really need to lose a lot of weight currently weigh 24st gained loads of weight while i was pregnant and still gaining it now. DS is nearly 1 i have propally gained 8st in 2 years.Has any one lost a lot of weight,and how what diet etc. I have PND and comfort eat a lot
Have you discussed with GP? I think you need to resolve the PND and the comfort eating before you worry about dieting.
I have lost 3.5 stone but thats not a lot really...
With the amount to loose that you have you need to choose a diet that you can stick with in the long term. Or how about Paul McKenna (train your mind only to eat when hungry).
What sort of diet appeals to you?
3 years ago, i was approximately 20 stone, and at 5ft 7ish was a size 24.
In less than a year, i got down to 11stone 5.
I would in no way advocate the way i lost weight. I was extremely silly and basically restricted lots of calories and exercised more. I lost weight quickly, but was left with lots of saggy skin and stretch marks, plus i was left feeling so weak and actually passed out a couple of times.
When you lose weight by restricting calories like that once you go back to eating 'semi-normally' the weight will just come flooding back on. I put on 2 stone again in the space of as many months. And then i'd lose it, then put it on again, then lose it, etc etc etc.
I'm a binge and a comfort eater, and i need to get to grips with the reasons why i eat so much, try to identify the triggers and basically change my whole lifestyle.
Also, i thought losing weight was going to be a magical cure - i was sure i'd be happy and confident once i wasn't obese...but that wasn't the case. I still looked in the mirror and saw an obese person, and my self esteem was, if anything, actually lower than what it had been before. I think that was because i hadn't dealt with the issues of why i'd been binge/comfort eating.
19 weeks after having my first child, i now weigh approximately 11stone 9 (i think my scales weigh me a few pounds less than i actually am - good scales!) but i want to lose a stone, maybe a stone and a half. But i'm still struggling with the binge eating. At lunch i had 5, yes 5, slices of buttered toast
I've rambled and been no help at all, but i think i'm saying that underlying reasons for the comfort eating need to be dealt with - as they do in my case.
Good luck to you; i know it's not easy. x
Have no real suggestions, but I'm about to start a healthy eating and exercise regime to lose about 8 stone. I don't want a caddy diet because everyone I've seem
N do one has put the weight bacon, so I'm going with a lifestyle change and lots of healthy food.
Sorry I don't have more advice, but happy to handhold and share tips with you as time goes on if that would be a helpful thing.
Hi ive been working out for just over a year now i have about 8lb left to lose i exercise 3 times a week but it all goes down hill at the weekends as i eat biscuits and crisps general junk and the odd glass of vino, any ideas how i can curb these munch fest? i would really appreciate any ideas
