I know exactly how you feel!! It took me 2 years to finally adjust. I started at 170 lbs looking to lose 10 lbs for my wedding that was 2 years away, instead I gained 35 lbs and loooked miserable on my wedding day. For me, it was rock bottom that finally made me say enough was enough. However, trying to stop eating what I was used to was really hard. So I tried weight watchers smart one meals. I would have them for breakfast lunch and dinner, and I would have 100 calorie snacks and lots of fruit/veggies. I did this and ONLY this for the first few weeks and I dropped 10 lbs like it was nothing. Now that I've started to lose I was confident in starting to make my own food or even have some things from before, of course in moderation and as long as I was being active. Now, I've lost 17lbs and it's still coming off.
The weight watchers meals are a great way to keep on track to help yourself get jump started.
Took a quick peek... beer, candy, quick bread and cookies will not help you lose weight.Yes, they can be worked in, but not all of those in a day!
Try limiting yourself to one treat a day. Eating more protein will help you fill full. And log everything, preferable before you eat it. Then you can decide whether or not you really want those calories.
I am trying to lose, and I just keep gaining weight! I have gained almost 10 pounds since April. When I try to talk to my husband about my frustrations, he just tells me that I'm fine, I'm healthy and to stop worrying but the problem is, my clothes don't fit, I don't feel good about myself. I try to track, but my calories a so inconsistent and I have been eating over my calorie limit for the day the majority of the week. I know I need better self control, why is it so hard for me to find? I need some tough love, I want my old body back.
