I’m sat here cradling a SlimmingWorld magazine and a sneaky packet of Rowntree’s Randoms. I don't cut sweet stuff completely out of my diet, but try to choose them in moderation. For around 2 weeks now I've been being sensible about eating - avoiding the chip shop and getting more fruit, while eating around 1200-1300 cals a day (never lower!). So far I've lost 5.3 pounds which I never thought I'd achieve in this time! My stats(in pounds):
Starting weight: 147+
Current weight: 141
Goal weight: 120+
I started putting on a lot more weight going through a few bad anxiety patches. I comfort ate a lot to calm myself and couldn't go out to burn it off, so I was at the heaviest I'd ever been, at one point nearly 11 stone.
Not wanting to get myself any further stuck in a rut I joined up to MyFitnessPal and began challenging myself. I ate a (much) reduced version of my previous diet, but skipping junk out and adding more fruit+veg+protein in - it also really helped to record everything I'd been eating. I don't recommend eating less than 1200 at all! Not only will you put more weight on afterwards but it'll make you feel miserable, hence you're more likely to give in.
Thanks for reading - I'm so sorry for not posting in a while! x
