Hello! My name is Laura and I live in Maitland, NSW. I'm 19, a full-time uni student and work at woolies at the moment and spend most of my free time at home with my family.
I guess I've joined this forum because while I'm not overweight (my BMI is around 22.. go figure), I'm a size 10-12 and quite short (163cms) and would love to get down to around 53kg by christmas.
I've tried the whole diet shake thing but they made me physically ill (I've since discovered I'm lactose intolerant - something I like to ignore now anyway).
A normal day for me would be -
Low-fat muesli and low fat yoghurt for breakfast
A chicken and salad sandwich for lunch on wholemeal bead with no butter - sometimes with a serve of chips
Crackers or pita chips for afternoon tea
A whole serve of sugar free jelly
A piece of steak or rissole or some other meat item I find in our refrigerator for dinner
Biscuits and lollies after dinner
6-8 glasses of water a day, sometimes alot of diet coke on top
Also I try and go to a cardio class at the gym 1-2 times a week, 2-3 pump classes and a yoga class... doesn't always happen though. Haven't been in two weeks due to assignment stress :s
My diet really frustrates me because I work so hard on eating healthy during the day - then get home and eat whatever. Does anyone have any low cost, low effort yummy ideas for dinner? I love veges in stirfrys so I'm thinking of buying a couple of the frozen packets I see at work?
