Hi Storm

Congrats on taking the first step to getting healthy! I am about 116 kilos at the moment. The highest i've got to where i actually weighed myself, was about 125kilos. I know what it's like being a food lover.

I also am surrounded by people who don't struggle with their weight. They often can't understand my relation with food. I've had people say to me to just eat less food lol. Like it is an easy thing!

What do you have in mind to get the weight off? Are you following a certain plan or diet?

Do you like lite n easy? I looked into it but it wasn't available in my area. It would be good from the point of view that your meals are there are ready and you don't have to plan it out, or be in the kitchen cooking. I always pick at things when i cook! I like routine with weight loss plans. I tend to eat the same types of things all the time, and get myself into a rhythm. It can get boring after a while though lol. I have to mix it up a bit.

Does your hubby support you? Or do you find that he tempts you to eat bad foods? I had to make sure i told everyone not to eat their junk food around me, it was too tempting!

havent started lite n easy as yet - waiting for my food delivery

im bad for picking if i cook or am around food being cooked

hubby is supportive but east anything he wants and sometimes forgets im trying to be good and when im in a bad mood he brings me something bad to make me feel good then i feel obligated to eat it - which is why lite and easy will take this lil issue away

Good stuff! That's great your hubby is being supportive. Have you got your lite n easy delivery yet?

Sometimes you just need to take time out and put yourself first!

Good luck with your Lite n' Easy, Storm. I had a friend who lost lots of weight using them and she's managed to keep the weight off for years. If they offered vegan meals I'd be signing up in a heart-beat! Let us know how you find it.

cheers,

That's a hard one. You could stay with Lite & Easy to get the first 5-10 kilos off, it will give you motivation and confidence in yourself. Then try to copy the Lite and Easy routine and meals and do it yourself.

Don't feel guilty, whatever you decide. This is your first time on Lite and Easy right? You deserve a chance to make it work. This is life or death we are talking about, it's not like you have taken the credit card and splashed out on a new LV bag. You want to spend money on the most precious thing you have - your health and your life.

Your hubby wants you around, this money wouldn't be a waste to him. Not to say you can't do this on your own with healthy eating - but you may need to do a month or so of Lite & Easy to get that confidence boost and kick start.

Hi Akasha

Just thought I would share my experiences on Lite'n'Easy. I tried it for about 3 months last year. I lost 10 kilos (although I was also on Reductil at the time). It cost me about $155 a week on the 1500 cal plan (if my memory is working today!!).
The food was better than I expected in some ways, but worse in others. Their ham was horrible (manufactured). So was some of the chicken in the meals (grey and gristly in the curries). Mind you, I am fussy when it comes to meat - I go for quality over quantity, so maybe I am just too picky. In the end I got sick of the food. Even though you can choose one of two options for the day, it is similar in taste and texture throughout. I dont remember being hungry while on it. So that was a plus. I stopped just before Christmas - bad time! I have put on about 5 kilos since and I am now following the CSIRO eating plan (better for me as I have polycystic ovaries).
Regarding feeling guilty about the expense...Perhaps you could use that as a motivator to stick to it?? I agree with FutFuk though...Your hubby wants you around so no money is too much to make sure that happens!
Just a thought...you may be surprised to calculate how much you were spending on food pre-Lite'n'Easy. Especially junk. It adds up!! So much so that $155 a week may be a saving!!

Good luck :)
LIVE YOUR LIFE LIKE A THIN PERSON....AND EVENTUALLY YOUR BODY WILL MATCH YOUR LIFESTYLE!

hi guys just wanted to add my 2c on lite n easy. I am on 1200cals breaky lunch and dinner 5 days a week and it is costing me $101. If you sit and work that out it is $20 a day for everything (excpet milk).

On the weekends I am very active in sport so it generally entails breaky of cereal, salad rolls, dinner out occasionally lots of fruit etc. I was on Jenny Craig for 12 montsh and that was expensive and you had to supplement their food with all fresh foods...
I definitely think L&E is good - especially for the convenience - but like any plan they are only as good as how much effort you put into them!! Best of luck with your decision :D
