I used to be on this site a lot about 8 months ago. I had successfully lost 23lbs in 6 months and was using this great site to help me out...It did!
However, over the fall and winter of last year I just stopped everything...I have only gained 5lbs back of the 23 over the last six months. That is a good thing for me as I would normally have gained all of it back as happened in previous years.
Well I feel good and I am ready to start up again! I am tracking my food, walking with a buddy 4 times a week and putting some tools in place that helped me to lose before.
I am battling with keeping to the recommended calories! I have even allowed for an extra 100 and can't keep with that either! I definitely struggle with the right portion sizes as they feel so small. I have added more fruit and lighter milk and don't eat junk really. But by the time I have had a bowl of muesli and coffee with milk and honey, I am half way through the calories I should have for the day. Then night comes and I really want to eat...I will have done fairly well throughout the day but tend to blow it at night and go over and lose nothing.
I need some motivation, tips, advice on how to stick to my plan! I know I shouldn't eat more but I just do...I am sabotaging myself it feels like!
Would love to have your insights!
Thanks in advance!
