The news article below reminded me that so much hype about weight loss is just that "hype".
This article goes on to say that most of the biggest losers gained more weight than they lost on the show. http://news.ninemsn.com.au/ent
The same goes for me but "luckily " I only lost 5kg and gained 6kg, I did have surgery during that time but the fact remains noe I have even more to weight. Actually I'm trying to lose fat not weight, I'd be happy if I was the same weight but 2 sizes smaller built of muscle and not so many jiggly bits.
My quest is to find a lifestyle that allows me to be fit healthy and still live a little. I don't want to never eat chocolate or ice cream again. I like these foods however I dont need to eat them every day, I dont have to have them and even if I really want them I do now have the control to just not eat them. For the last year I have challenged myself to bake and cook these foods and purposely challenge myself not to take one bite or taste because for years I couldnt do that. When it came out of the oven warm, fresh fragrant and gorgeous I just had to have one. Then it was half and then a quarter and now if I decide not to I dont eat it at all I dont.
My point is that I dont want to have to cook and pack every meal every day for the rest of my life. Sometimes it not possible. I have just come back from a trip to Sydney business/pleasure and I googled "whole food restaurant " because I was so sick of processed food and felt like some brown rice, lentils roasted veg salad etc and google came with nothing.
So I came up with a new strategy, when its a restaurant meal or something served up to me at a function I will try to eat only half of whats on my plate.
Celebrate the positives every day, and today its a beautiful day and my dog is jumping on me to take her for a walk.
