I’m feeling motivated and I am aware that the weight is going to shift slowly. I’ve been reading alot about women who have dieted and done a load of exercise to lose weight and then put it back on again because they can’t sustain it long term – and this is what I am trying to avoid.
My aim is to make positive changes to my lifestyle so that new habits form, which are realistic.
So, rightly or wrongly, I am doing it my way! And I’m not depriving myself but I am thinking about what I am eating and making positive choices rather than just eating.
So far the easy stuff has been…
not eating in the evening
drinking more water
making sure I eat lunch
not snacking on anything but fruit – I have been apple hungry!
walking to work and ditching the car as much as possible
But it has been harder to…
find the time to do more exercise but I am getting there!
But is anything changing?
As I said when I started this, I am not weighing myself because it has never worked for me before.
I feel better and I feel more positive about food and my body and I don’t feel like I am on a diet, I’m making good lifestyle changes.
I have lost 2 inches from my waist, 2 inches from my hips and 2 inches from my boobs in 2 weeks. I have never measured in this way before and this feels better for me, to see results in this way and I feel more motivated to stick to the changes I am making and to find more time for exercise.
