Hi Superstar. Welcome to the Quarterly Challenge. Like me, you have a bit to lose so that is why I thought breaking the year into quarters may help. By the end of the year we can look gorgeous.
I seem to have gotten over the bump in the road. And your right MumnBub, I've got to get up and go for a walk when I'm stressed. I know I feel better when I walk but I'm afraid I've gotten lazy. Usually I would say "unmotivated" because it sounds so much nicer but the reality is that I am carrying a lot of extra weight and I find it too much effort to get off my butt. I am also getting a variety of pains through my feet, legs, hips and back primarily caused by my additional weight so I need to deal with it and get on with the weighloss.
I often have a wholemeal roll with salad for lunch. Yum. Trouble is that after wards i eat treats, takeaway etc.
One of my difficulties is that I have a fear of missing out. Even thinking of cutting back on yummy chinese meals makes me feel a bit upset and deprived. I have to try to convince myself I can have a small portion regularly and that's ok. Whereas when I order I want to get everything I like all at once, as if it' my last meal.
I just thought, one day that will be right, one day it will be my last meal. Sorry I'm not trying to be depressing, just thinking that by eating the way I do I am getting health issues and it may not be around as long as if I make the effort to get healthier.
