Is anyone else trying to loose weight at the moment, i have a lot of weight to loose sadly.
Hope your all well, and not as silly as me
never ever go on a diet, they do not work.
You need to go on a healthy eating plan that also includes lots of healthy foods and exercise.
My daughter and I go to TOPS (take off pounds sensibly) where we are learning this. We both have a lot to loose too and are on a 1500cal a day meal plan. At the start of each week we sit down together and plan our menu every day. This also includes "snacks" 3 x's a day. Our program is Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, supper snack. (Snacks are fruits, vegies and dips, crackers and cheese etc.) It all works into the calorie count for the day.
My point is that we need to learn to eat healthy and make it a habit because that will be something you can live with every day, not just for a few months.
Learn to love fresh fruits and vegies and stay away from prepackaged processed and canned foods.
email me every day and we can keep tabs on each other progress if you like, because support and accountability are both keys to successful life changes.
