I haven’t weighed myself since the start of January, I was just over 11 stone. Down from 12.5 stone in 2018. My goal weight is 10 stone.
I weighed myself this morning and I’m SO shocked - 11.9 stone! I’ve had a really stressful time the last few weeks and have been mindlessly snacking and probably comfort eating. But I can’t believe I’ve put on nearly a stone in such a short period of time!
How can I jump start my weight loss in the best possible way? I’ve been looking at fast 800 but I don’t know if that’s too extreme or difficult to stick to. Really need to shift this 0.9 stone and then the other stone I wanted to lose anyway.
More water more sleep.
If I have a rapid weight gain it's usually because I'm not getting enough of both of the above and am snacking to compensate.
I've Done 500cal Day Fasts. It's brutal but effective. It breaks the cycle of overindulging too. I find a 5 day period of being really strict in what I eat (boredom eating is my enemy) usually resets me and helps to get everything back on track. I say this but have yet to lose the 7lbs I got for Christmas!
