Hey Gina, For me it is perservence and planning.
I pretty much plan in advance every meal sometimes the day before or at least that morning. This for me leaves the least amount of room for error, like snacking on the wrong things or having something fast and full of calories because I didnt plan.
I also count weight watchers points, I dont attend the meetings, though I did many many years ago. I purchased the current points books and calculator out of the weight watchers mag..
I also am pretty hard on myself when it comes to exercise and following through with planned routine. I'm currently going to curves 3 times a week(a fitness centre that does hydraulic circuit work) I swim for 2 hrs twice a week and also walk when I can usually for 45-60 mins.
At the moment this is working for me, it took a while for me to work up to ding the amount of exercise I'm doing as a had a back injury about 3 months ago and had to just follow a diet plan, lucky for me I still managed to loose a few kilo during this time too.
I have cut out pretty much all junk food,I may have chocolate once every couple of months. Funnily enough I dont crave it anymore.
, soft drink and white bread. And like Kate drink 2 litres of water a day.
Something different seems to work for each individual, the trick is to find what it is for you.
hope this helps a little gina.
I like you love to read about how people achieve their weight loss..
