Have a look around for what is actually a serving of food - you'll be surprised how small it can be! A serving of meat, for example, is the size of a deck of cards.
Thanks, I don't eat a whole lot anyway. Mostly small servings and more often, I've been following the MySpecialK program, not exactly, but mostly I'm doing well and I struggle to finish their portions!
I've been to a naturapath, dietician and had tests from my Dr's (who found a problem with my liver....) I have quite a few supplements to take every morning and according to the dietician there is no reason (diet wise) stopping me from shifting weight.
I have made a couple of changes the past 2 weeks and I have lost 4kg in the past week. The biggest change has been coming off my anti-depressant medication. I was on quite a high dose and after thinking back over the past 4.5 years my weight gain not only coincided with pregnancy but also the commencement of the medication. Pregnancy being over, of course lol, I figured the only thing left was the meds. It's been a rough 2 weeks, but I'm getting there.

Thanks, I am aware of this, however due to some recent injuries I am unable to stay on my feet for more than about 30 minutes at a time. I do walk 3-4 times a week and can mange about 20 minutes before the injuries play up. I am slowly increasing and pushing myself with that time each week, but as I'm sure you are probably aware, it itself is a slow process.
Two weeks ago I had 43kg to lose, thanks to a gain of 8kg in the last 3 months. I now have 39kg to lose. I will get there
And I am aware it will be a slow process from here as I struggle to find the right balance of meals, exercise and my mental health well being.
