my biggest obstacle is that I tend to finish my girls meals. And they have lots of carby food - good for them, not for me....
But now thankfully we have moved and we live down the road from Ems school - so I walk her there and back. 2.5kg a day. I am getting an exercise bike this week, and will do an hour a day while watching a TV series. I'm sure this will help alot.
Missesmom funny enough i also made chicken burgers and chips last night lol.
I also skipped the bun, cut the chicken (made it with chicken schintzels) in half, skipped the chips and had a cucumber/tomatoe and lettuce salad.
Tonight dh asked to have steak and potatoe bake and salad, so thought i would grill the steak, skip the potatoe bake and have some salad again or a really small serving of potatoe bake.
What i have found the hardest is that dh and i use to be BIG takeaway fans and often i really dont feel like cooking so we result to takeaways - recently i tried the chicken hawaai salad from our fav place and its divine so now when dh gets pizza (sob sob) i have that instead. Also time to do excersie is a problem so everyday K and I jump on his trampoline for like 20min and then i do other basic excersises whilst he has supper.
Well last night we had chicken burgers - so I had my patty without the roll, and 1/4 chips I normally have, along with some salad. And this morning I was down again. I think moderation is the key - unless of course like Aunty Carrie - the Dr has ordered you off certain foods (and believe me I have often wished that he would, so I could really quit)
Today hopefully I'll get to eat at some point since I went to the dentist and my mouth is numb
I am inspired by all your weighloss and motivation.
Last year Sept i went on the contraceptive injection and unfortuntely got one of the side effects and gained weight. I need to loose about 12kgs to be back at the weight that i am happy and comfortable with (pre-pregnancy or should i say pre-contraceptive injection).
I have started since two weeks back to cut out on fizzy cooldrinks. I treat myself to a can of coke on a wednesday and a saturday, i allow myself chocolate once a week. I am eating very small portions and drinking tons of water(something i never use to do). two weeks ago i couldnt fit into a pair of jeans, today i could . I dont know how much weight i have loss since my son jumped on mine and broke it, i think i prefer that way for now though or i become a bit obessed with weighing myself.
I am off the contraceptiv injections (since Monday) and plan to keep sticking to my healthy eating in hope that i will loose the weight.
I have struggled with my weight my entire life, and even though i dance 6 hrs a week last year, I still couldnt lose! I just keep gaining approx 1 kg a year.
So, at the beginning of this year I made a decision - I want a baby. But I want to be as healthly as possible. And I want to do hypnobirthing so I need to be as fit as possible. So I have given myself a year to lose 20kgs.
January didnt work - it was my bday month and I think my body was just getting back to pre-Christmas weight.
Anyway, I went to the doctor for chronic fatigue and got put on a special diet - wheat free, sugar free, dairy free, gluten free.
What a mission!! I can barely eat out and friends have to make me special meals.
But on this plus side, I am now down 6.1kgs (as of this morning) and thats in 5 and a half weeks
I find setting goals helps me - especially when its such an important one!
MissesMom - I reckon I need to start this journey with you. I need to lose about 20kg's myself. In the past I have tried everything and I cant get it right, granted - I have an underactive thyroid and am on Eltroxin daily, but thats not an excuse.
Starting tomorrow - its eating 3 healthy meals, 2 small snacks and exercise. I have joined the gym - now I just need the willpower to continue to do this
