Nothing complicated, I just want be lighter next Monday than today.(5 Posts)
Well here we are again!
Another Monday and yet another plan to lose weight.
Not much to ask really is it?
Would anyone like to join me in a support thread of giving each other a kick when needed?
We all know what we need to do to get there but if it was that easy I wouldn't be sitting here with an extra 4 stone on me!
Today is the day and the only goal I have is that in a weeks time I will be slightly less heavy than I am today.
Snacking is my downfall so if anyone has any tips about that then I would appreciate it.
I feel exactly the same! I'm happy to join you.
Any loss by next Monday will be a result.
I will go and weigh myself and report back.
Ok, my starting weight is 11st 9.5lb
I'm actually surprised that I don't weigh more. I was just over 12 stone a couple of weeks ago.
I have been decorating for the last two weeks so that must have counted as exercise 😄
A quick and easy way (no CC or weighing food ). Is to eat fruit on an empty stomach. In the morning is good. Eat when you're hungry (don't starve) Eat protein and carbs separately. So no burgers\sandwiches, BUT plenty of salad and veg with all meals. Cut down on caffiene, and on sweet fizzy drinks oh and alcohol.
I lost 3 stone on the above without extra\gym type exercise.
To get started avoiding snacking requires willpower. No snacks in the house, except fruit or veg. If you get your snacks elsewhere don't go to the place of temptation or if you have to, don't take money for it.
If you normally sit down for a snack say mid morning or afternoon or evening, switch it for a walk, run or cycle round the block or if you have to be at home clean or tidy something or anything more fun but don't eat between meals.
A habit tracker app for the first month can be good so you actively get to tick off that you survived a normal snacking session time period without eating.
Also only allow yourself water, fruit, veg or plain tea or coffee between meals.
If you tend to snack when others do, just say no and keep on saying no. Sometimes it is better not to say you are on a diet, but that you just don't fancy something.
You will get hungry between meals to begin with but after a month that will go.
Also porridge and soup are good to keep you feeling full longer too.
