Howdy Cherry my dear,
Oh darling, you CAN, you definitely definitely CAN! When I first started losing weight again, I thought for sure this is not going to be any different but I was determined nonetheless. And now I'm almost 15kg lighter and I am so happy with what I have accomplished! Yes at first it was hard, very very hard and sometimes I was just craving bad things so much...but I kept at it and I knew that I always felt so much better when eating healthy and walking for 45 mins a day, I had so much more energy! And I wasn't getting those horrible sugar headaches or hours of fatigue in the afternoon from eating yucky food! The benefits are phenomenal and once you get passed the first couple of weeks, things become easier and more routine!
You don't want to starve yourself but you will need to make better choices...
My suggestion is to join MyFitnessPal and log your cals and exercise there. I am user "shelltree" if you wish to add me for support and motivation
Or you can use calorie king, another great site. I find that having a low sugar cereal in the morning helps curb the hunger. My favourites are corn flakes and vita brits as they are very filling and you can have 3 cups of cornflakes and it's only 300 cals! You could also try wholegrain toast with a lower sugar jam or low fat marg spread or even baked beans for some protein.
For snacks I try to stick to fruit, something yummy like a pear or an apple if I feel like it or even pinapple or grapes, whatever takes your fancy! You could also have fat free natural yoghurt and frozen berries, very yummy
Lunch is by far the hardest meal for me, LOL. I never know what to eat... A salad sandwich on wholegrain bread or a wrap would be yummy or a low sodium, low fat soup or a salad with fish or another meat.
And for dinner, I always have the weight watchers/healthy choice meals with extra veges and for the sweet tooth, a biggest loser bar or a no fat yoghurt
or a low fat hot choccy yum!
These are just my suggestions but as I said, you don't want to starve yourself. You are more likely to be cranky, sad and get easily demotivated if you are ravenous all the time! Even small changes at first can make a difference!
This is what this forum is here for, to help support and motivate you to reach your goals.
I believe in you, now do you believe in yourself? Because you CAN make it happen and you CAN see yourself reach your goals
All the best,
