Try cutting fast carbs out of your diet completely. Keep slow carbs, protien, and healthy fats in you diet. That should help reduce cravings caused by fast carbs (bread, cookies, cakes). If you are still eating mindlessly, it will be time to do some self examination. Journaling is a good way to do that. But try getting rid of junk food and fast food. Your craving really will decrease.

Welcome back! I would say with money being a little tight, maybe go thru some of the exercise videos here and see what you can do at home. There are plenty of things you can do without going to the gym or going out and getting lots of expensive equipment.

Hi everyone. I've set up my account but haven't logged back on for some time. I lost 5 stone 2 years ago with the motivation of my wedding. Since then I have gained 3 stone. So even though I am still lighter than when I first started, I am desperately unhappy with my weight gain. Despite this, I don't seem to be able to stop eating, even when I'm not hungry - I've even found myself eating secretely! I have 7 children, both myself and my husband work so there's not much time or energy for exercise and certainly no spare cash for gym membership or similar. Can anyone out there advise on staying motivated to help me reach my goal as getting divorced and re-married is a little extreme! Ha
