I have been trying to shift weight for ages, I manage 1.5 stones then stop and gradually put it all back on. How do you do MFP? My issue is with emotional eating so having a tracker that tells me how much crap I'm eating would be useful!
What exercise are you planning on doing? I started couch to 5k and nearly completed it and completed a race but have ground to a halt.
I have tried my fitness pal but find it a bit of a pain to keep logging everything. I'm ok for a couple of days then life gets in the way. Also I find that if I over eat (emotionally) then I don't log the food because it would make it real! Then I kind of give up. I'm useless x
You're not useless, it's hard losing weight and keeping it going, way harder than eating junk, it is for me anyway! I log everything on mfp, I don't see the point otherwise the only person I'm hurting is myself, plus it's good because of I've scoffed cakes, chocolates etc then I can see that in writing and make sure my other meals that day/week are lighter. I have the app on my phone and iPad so I can log stuff anywhere and I can plan a whole day in the morning so I know what I am eating in advance.
I can't do a lot in the way of exercise, my hips are shot after having 4 children they've not recovered after the last one was born, I can walk a bit but at a steady pace do no power walking for me! I am breastfeeding though so I burn a bit that way.
