Ally wrote:Hi Mel....losing weight is certainly a hard road and I know exactly where you are coming from....having started, stopped, started, stalled, stopped and restarting (yes it is a vicious circle) I found I was piling too much guilt on myself by beating myself up and "starting again"...The last few weeks I have been focusing more on "me" than weight loss to try and get my headspace right. I have gone right back to basics and taken my own advice that I
have given others, but not quite followed through with myself....I have started writing all my thoughts down...why do I want to lose weight?? how am I going to sensibley achieve this?? how is losing weight going to change my life?? The important thing to remember is losing weight is not going to change our lives as in "if I lose weight my relationship will improve", but it will help us to be more confident in ourselves and improve our overall health dramatically.
One of the most important things I have discovered for me is that I don't "start again", I have realised that this in itself can be very harmful. I just continue on the weight loss journey I am already on and put it down to a "learning" experience...I found that by 'starting again' it helped to feed my insecurities and added more burden to the 'never finishing anything' issues that I have to face. Every time I "failed" and then "started over" I would soon "fail" again....you would be amazed how little things like this affect our journies!!
I think the best advice I can offer you is to be true to yourself, write down everything that passes your lips, work out why you want to lose weight, and just keep trying until you find something that works for you matey....it is not easy, but just never give up completely and never think that you have failed if you eat too many "treat" foods......
Calorie King offer a University that takes you through a 13 week course of different aspects of eating/binging/exercise the whole works really....you just sign up for their online club (it is all free) and you can access the university and a whole range of articles as well that help with just about every issue we face whilst trying to lose the flab!!
Ally wrote:Hi Mel just a quick squizzy at your food ideas they look great, but go careful with the 1000 island dressing it can turn a healthy salad into a fat laden meal...can you get a reduced fat one?? Again with muesli bars check the sugar content...they can be low in fat, but the sugars are through the roof!!
You can freeze mountain bread however I probably would freeze it for any longer than a month....
