Previously I have lost up to 7kgs twice and I used a basic healthy eating plan from a diet a friend was on coupled with the weight watchers point system. Although once I got to 7kg I got more and more lax and eventually stopped altogether. Now, I am doing Lite n Easy. They suggested I go on the lowest cal plan
which is 1200 cals a day and I thought I would be ready to chew my arm off the first week but surprisingly I was fine.
Have been worried what happens when I reach my goal weight but am finding this is slowly teaching me to control my portion size and I know think about what I am putting in my mouth. I like the structure of it and find that as I can see exactly how much food I have for the day I tend to think well there's nothing else I need and have been able to say no to all the choccy, cake etc constantly on offer at work. I find the food each day is adequate for me and I have started exercising too and want to make exercise a daily thing. As I haven't had to cook my own meals for years I simply am not interested in doing so now so that is why this seems to be working for me. I ummed and arred about it for about 6 months due to the cost and also hubby was upset as I think he thought I was blaming his cooking, he is cooky you see. I don't blame anyone but me, I am responsible for what goes in my mouth and for filling up my plate a second time! I finally started eating better and what I thought was healthy and didn't see even a point of a kilo loss so I talked it over with hubby about the Lite n Easy and he has been supportive ever since, especially when he started to see the weight loss. Like any eating plan you need to find what works for you and this seems to be it for me, I already feel so much healthier and on this the food doens't let you eat until your stuffed...I am finding that a feeling I don't miss!
