Please dont despair!!
If there is one thing I have learned on this big journey of mine....its that you have to find what works for you!
I have been trying to lose the weight for 7 years now...and its finally working.
At first I wanted a quick fix....i wanted the weight gone in one week!! now how unrealistic is that!!
Then I tried a few other things....i caved in over and over.....then i decided that I need information....so i read everything i
could about losing weight and different ways to do it....i learned a little about my body...then i decided what could work for me.
What works for me is to eat 5 small meals a day....low GI....fruits and vegetables...snacks between b/f and lunch and l/dinner.
It keeps my blood sugar levels constant throughout the day.
I also learned that before I was eating anywhere from 2000-3000 calories per day....where i should be eating 1500. Now for me to go to 1500 all of a
sudden made me sooooo hungry it wasnt funny....i realised that for that time i will cut it down but not by a drastic amount.
At the moment I eat about 1500 cal because my body can handle it now....but it took some time for my body to accept this.
For cravings...(mine is chocolate)...if u ditch it for 2-3 weeks...u will find that ur body may want it (or not even) but its not screaming for it!!
It is recommended that you do this for the first few months or until your diet is stable and then you can have treats now and then.
Sorry for going on and on....i just know how you feel and i want to help as much as i can because i hated myself for so long because I
felt like I failed myself.....
Dont be discouraged....it will take time for the weight to go...but its better to wait for it to go than for it to not go at all right!!!
also....i find that if i set mini goals such as- i just want to be under 84kg this week then the next week i want to be as close to 83kg as possible....is a much better way of looking at it than thinking that ive got 15kg to lose!! and it seems so far away....
hope it works out.....
and again im sorry for the speech!!!
