Well your eating habits were similar to mine! when i moved out of home i tried to stop the habits my parents taught me, large
meals with high carbohydrate intake!! I dont think you have done too badly at all
You have realized you need to lose
weight and that is a great thing, the first big step.
I still fall into temptation esp when im stressed with work or study, but its so important to take ur lunch with you and plan your
meals so that you dont fall out of line and make bad food choices.
I know how hard it is living with a family who eats high caloric diets, and its even harder to say no to the food as you
feel ungrateful and maybe even feel like you still want to eat this way as it is the way you were brought up.
I try to portion my food, and have lost quite a bit, i also do bowxing and ride a bike and go for a run at times
The foods I eat are normally Oats or 2 pieces of Toast. two pieces of fruit, a handful of mixed nuts, celery with hommus
can of tuna or salmon with a big salad with cherry tomatos, light cheese, olives, beetroot (redbeet) light dressing and
cucumber. Or lean chicken sandwich with salad. Or steak with Vege!
And because i love dessert (yes i love Caremello koalas also!!! lol
) i chose a sugar free jelly, chopped strawberries and some
light custard, yum! its sweet and tastes so nice and not too high in fat or sugar
You sound a lot like me with my eating habits, hopefully we can work together to be happy with our weight
