Hi everyone. I am very new here .just found the site and trying to work out how to use it. I am a 43 year old mum of four. I live in Sydney and i am sick of being overweight. It;s hard to get motivated and change habits.
I know i can do it as i have just given up smoking after 30 years and have been smoke free for 10weeks.

I especially need help with Dinners idea's and what to cook.

Any support would be appreciated.

Hi Kathy,

We all know the feeling of being tired of our weight here! :)

Starting really is the hard part. Its easier to keep going when you build up momentum. Personally I went on lite n easy for a month. Did wonders - more to my confidence in being ABLE to lose weight (i was starting to think it wasnt even possible). I wasn't planning on staying on it long, and I didn't. After a few weeks I went back to buying my own food, and since then I've lost another 5-6kgs or therabouts trying just to eat healthy. I am not at all strict with myself (which is why I lose so pitifully slow :roll: ).

It worked for me, but I wouldn't neccesarily recommend LnE to everyone. Its pretty expensive for what it is, and may not even be possible if you have a family as well. But there are other diets simialr like that out there. Or you could try shakes - do some research on whats out there. For the record, im not advocating starving yourself or eating unhealthy. But a few weeks of lower calorie intake and succesfull weightloss can do WONDERS for confidence and motivation.

Welcome to the forum, one step at a time do not give up everything, a short walk is better than nothing, then you will want to increase it. I gave up smoking 12 years ago now, I could not even imagine having a puff now.
