Reading all your posts has given me some serious motivation well done ladies. X
Thanks ladies. I think I’d like to lose 2lbs this week as that puts me exactly back at having lost 5 stone. I worry after the wedding without having a goal that the weight is going to creep back on but we’re TTC so I’m telling myself the healthier I stay the more it’ll help that hopefully. The hunger ness has continued today though managed to stick to plan so far.MrsC are you able to leave the office at lunchtime? My office is in the middle of nowhere so I literally walk around the car park but it does my mental and physical health better to just get away and walk for half an hour a day.
@MrsCToBee sorry to hear you are struggling it sounds like you are struggling with the mindset more than the know how.. ? I suppose the thing that has helped me is working out my motivation, why do I want to lose weight. I also quit smoking, my motivation really was that I want to be able to run without feeling like my lungs were going to jump out my mouth, and I wanted to keep my BMI in a healthy range. We put so much pressure on ourselves to be "perfect" for the wedding when in reality it's just one day, it's everything that follows that matters. You will look and feel amazing on the day because you are getting married to someone you love. If you want to lose weight do it for you, not the wedding. The expectation on women is already too high before we add that in too. In terms of a partner who isn't quite on the same page, I get that. My FH is trying to gain weight so we tend to have the same meals and I just don't have the carbs or I have a smaller portion. I eat breakfast and lunch at work so can control the portions for that too. Can you try these "fakeaway" recipes that SW post all over social media? I also second going for a walk at lunchtime. I'm desk based and I can very easily not move for 6 hours sometimes. I've been listening to podcasts (Bridechilla mostly) and doing a walk for half hour or so at lunchtime. Stops me going mad! Good luck on your journey. It's tough but worth it xx
