My name is Carole, I'm 26yo and I've recently joined to find some encouragement and motivation to help stay on track with my weight loss plan.
My average weight used to be 58kgs but over the last 6yrs I have been going up and down...then up and up on the scales, at one point reaching my highest weigh in at 89kgs. I have just restarted my old Sureslim plan on my own a couple of days ago as this has worked for me in the past. It has been hard as I feel like I have an internal struggle whenever I see food I want to eat but know that I shouldn't. To try make things easier, I have been preparing lunch and dinner the night before to make sure I eat as planned. I find that keeping a food diary has also helped but I really want to change my attitude towards food. I always think I need to treat myself with my fav foods or something sweet everyday - I never feel 'in control' of food. I usually give in to whatever my body tells me it wants which is junk food of some sort... but then when I eat it, it's never as satisfying as I thought it would be....so then I feel guilty for not being able to resist in the first place.
I want to learn how to be in control of my body and how to reward myself with things other than food. I also have my wedding coming up this September and want to look fab for the big day!
Thanks for reading and look forward to chatting to you all
