lighterlife on my own(5 Posts)
I have lost weight successfully over the last few years using Lighterlife .
Having put on two stone I would like to do it again but having learned some of the tools have lost my local group & want to do it without a group .
Is there anyone out there who is starting who could share their experiences through this thread?
Also having difficulty genning myself up to get through the first 3/4 days -any words of wisdom?
Images show me now v how I looked this time last year 2 stone thinner
why have you put on two stone? Wouldn't it be better to address what happened there rather than paying again for a failed diet?
I know this won't be a popular opinion but it could save you a lot of money...
Put on two stone over a stressful summer & inactivity following a hysterectomy & a long term habit of using food as consolation.
I am however an all or nothing person and abstinence works for me .
I don't think I actually spend more on the meal replacements than when eating standard meals.
don't they taste like crap though? Why not eat decent veg, flavoursome stir-fries, tasty meat/chicken (if you aren't a veggie), and all the other wonderful things that are about?
anyway, you know why you've put on weight - for understandable reasons. Hopefully those issues have now eased, so you can get moving and eat some decent food.
yo-yo dieting is disastrous for health, especially as the overall trend is always fatter.
good luck with healthy eating and moving. Note today's headline about some crash-dieting sleb who's had the lighterlife advert banned. And I'm afraid the previous poster girl Pauline Quirke is porking up again.
it doesn't work.
Hi I will look up those articles on the web.I tend to eat the spaghetti bolognese & curry or chilli & shepherds pie which taste OK. I am a fan of Lighterlife it is a relatively short term sacrifice for long term gain.
Scientists are uncovering evidence that short periods of fasting, if properly controlled, could achieve a number of health benefits, as well as potentially helping the overweight.
Once I am past the first week I sleep better have more energy and feel so much better about myself.
I believe in loosing the weight then eating healthily to manage it.I love to cook really health food.Donna Hay,Ottolenghi.
I also love being a size 10 as opposed to size 16 & being able to wear and do what I want without restriction .
The benefits of losing weight are huge the challenges for me are achieving this first week and managing my stresses when I am light.
PS I lost 2kg yesterday.I am now on day 2
