Mobile Weight loss advice

Iím sure there must be threads about this so feel free to point me to some.

I just want to ask advice / need a a severe kick up the bum.

For those specifically who have lost a lot of weight. What did you do? Was it just an overnight thing of ďright Iím losing weightĒ and no more excuses.

I need to lose weight (around 4.5 stone). Thereís loads of reasons for doing this, improved health, mental health, having kids in the next year or two.

I go the gym / swim so itís just sorting the diet. I donít really know whatís best to have? As stupid as that sounds.

I have started on my fitness pal which seems really good.

Any words of wisdom or is it just a case of cracking on ! I find my motivation slips a lot, despite all the reasons for doing it.

I am a yoyo dieter but a couple of years ago I went to my nieces party and her grandmother is one of those people who take photos all the ****** time and puts them on Facebook. I was so upset by the photo of me I could have cried but it gave me a big kick up the bum and I lost 2 stone since then. I'm still overweight (or under tall) tho.

I lost a lot of weight (5st) before I had my first child using Weight Watchers, the fact that someone was ďassessingĒ me spurred me on.
Iím now up and down by a stone, and now attempting to lose it again, using MyFitnessPal, which is excellent, and couch to 5k, when I can be bothered 😩
I find looking at losing weight/getting fitter/health quotes on Pinterest helps me carry on , donít buy any ďgoodiesĒ, and keeping busy at nighttime - my worst time for snacking.

Good luck!

I joined Slimming World and everyone in the group is so supportive. Knowing I am getting weighed every week keeps me on the straight and narrow. I also bought the Pinch of Nom book. Great food that all the family can enjoy. I try to steer clear of bread and potatoes as they blow me out. I have lost 5" off my waist and 2" off my hips so far and and have another 20 weeks to lose 15lbs before my next Florida trip. Good luck with your weight loss.

I know this is going to sound pretty obvious but it is very much eat healthier and do more exercise.

Remember if you can average a pound a week loss then that's nearly four stone in a year

Try not to lose motivation if you slip and eat too much one day. Just carry on the diet regardless.
Try and shop for food after you have eaten.
Have small snack items ( low calorie or within diet regime) already in the cupboard or fridge.
Have a small glass of water before you eat. Try and drink water only not diet fizzy.
Can you join up with a friend? That helps some people.

It is obvious but I think thatís what I keep forgetting, thereís all these ďlose weight quickĒ plans etc but itís literally about eating less and moving more. And eating more of the right stuff.

I've lost 2 and half stone using my fitness pal since January

Breakfast is either porridge or boiled egg on toast. Not much variation because they are easy to do at work.
Lunch is usually a soup or salad which I again can do at work.
Dinners usually protein and veggies, pasta dishes, chilli with cauliflower rice, fish with couscous or rice with veggies.
I have 1 snack a day, crisps or couple of biscuits.
It is doable but you have to be honest with yourself and log everything.
I still have another couple of stones to go and I know due to Florida in August it could be nearer Christmas before I get there but I will.
Will also add that if you have a bad day then don't beat yourself up. I comfort eat due to depression and I do have bad days but just start again the day after.

I lost 8 stone, using my fitness pal, learning about having a calorie deficit is the smartest way to do it as itís something youíll carry with you for the rest of your life
Itís not a quick fix
Itís learning what you can eat and what you burn every day

Iím still learning
Iíve found maintaining the hardest part

Iím lighter so I donít burn as much as I used to

Iím heavier with muscle now so sometimes that can effect the scales

Itís a mindfield but if you can learn along the weight loss journey then youíll never forget what to do.

I run 30 miles a week when Iím not training for a big race, and still put weight on some weeks

Good luck, youíve got this xx
