Hello everyone, I haven't posted for a couple of weeks but know I should have as I think I need the support or maybe a big kick in the behind to get me going.
I have lost 2.1 since the first of the month but I know I should have lost more than that and seem to sabotage myself. I know I am a stress/emotional eater, I also know that I have to break the pattern somehow but it is not as easy as it sounds as most of you will already know. When I am upset I seem to go into a trance and just eat, it gives comfort when I need it most even though I don't actually need the food, it is like it just gives my mind something else to concentrate on. Hope this all makes sense.
One of the biggest issues for me is the fact that I start work early (I work for a horticultural company), and I do not eat before I leave home as it sits heavy in my stomach at 4 in the morning and makes me feel ill. Most mornings I drink at least a good litre of water while I am working and I usually have a drink (coffee or a diet shake) around 7 - 8 a.m. and fruit, but sometimes I am hungry and I have raisin toast as well.
Now I know I have to cut out the toast but what can I have while I'm out and about that will stop the hunger and warm my tummy on a cold morning. If it was summer I would not hesitate to have fruit salad for breakfast but even I draw the line at that when I am cold.
I have been having cuppa soups for lunch and then I have a small meal with vegetables and chicken or meat for dinner, I also have fruit a couple of times a day and I drink heaps of water so what else can I do to help loosen the load.
I have been tossing up trying the kick start diet and see how I go with that, if it will help me get started with a vengence, but I have to admit the thought of the vegies making me go to the toilet all day long puts me off as first of all I have to find a toilet as I go from job to job and sometimes that is not an easy thing to do.
Has anyone done the kick start diet with the soup, if so how did you go?
Thanks for listening.
