I've just joined and am planning to lose around 15 kgs over a 6 month period. I have a number of food sensitivities which is very boring. I'm well and truly over it. Unfortunately, I can't just eat every healthy fruit and veg that's out there in order to lose the extra weight. My main symptom is eczema. Just like a yo-yo dieter, depriving oneself of a number of foods can set up unhealthy attitudes. Hopefully, there's a way to eat healthy food, maintain a good weight, keep my eczema in check and not feel too deprived. Here's a quote (sorry, not sure whose it is) that I'm keeping foremost in my thoughts.."We must all suffer from one of 2 pains: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret".
My plan for this week is just to take some time to think about menu planning. I'm going to do 2 meal-replacement shakes (breakfast & lunch) and a normal family meal at night. It probably won't do much for my eczema, but will give me some thinking space and hopefully start me off in the weight loss department.
Really hoping this forum helps me to keep my eye on the goal.
