Thanks for sharing.
It's a good feeling to get out of that secrecy mode of think isn't it? Right through my weight loss journey I made it a rule for myself to always be open about my weight numbers. If anyone asked how much I had lost I straight away told them my current daily weigh in for that morning, how much I had lost and how much i still had to go. No secrets!...secrets make you a captive to your weight.
A good protein breakfast provides an excellent start for the day but make sure you don't have too much for the rest of the day...they do pack a good punch calories vs size wise. Try fruits such as apples for snacks, you might find them more helpful. If you don't feel that you ain't eating enough it will pay you to lower you protein intake and up you vegetable intake. Your body is probably craving more volume, vegetables and fruit will do that for you.
Don't worry about your hunger too much after 7pm. That isn't starvation setting in but old habit craving. If I went to bed hungry I knew I was going to have a good weigh in the next morning. Trust me...you won't starve to death!
You just have to get use to the idea that feeling hungry is the backdrop of losing weight. Your body is fighting you to keep it's old lifestyle together. Hunger is it's most effective dirty trick - but it isn't real
hunger...it only feels that way! Effective weight loss is about consuming just under "normal" consumption and exercising the fat reserves away. A simple theory but tough in practice!
I add a little bit of orange or lemon juice to my water to help me drink what I should. I mix it as a weak cordial.
I'm looking forward to seeing your plan of action and seeing how you make it into an effective healthy lifestyle that lasts forever.
That 60 minutes in the morning is a real good start!
