Diet Diaries

So this is just a little update on how my diet's going.

I lost around 4lb (2kg) in a week, and the whole process felt very manageable! I just cut out all the rubbish I used to eat, which was quite a lot! There's always so much food around the house and I seriously have no self control when it comes to food...but what I found was that the transition from snacking to no snacking was really hard at first, but after my stomach adjusted I didn't even feel the need to reach for food because I actually felt content.

I have slacked recently though, as exams took priority and I told myself I needed more energy...thus more food intake! Now I'm going to name and shame myself, as this will make me stop doing such horrible things to my body. For lunch today I had,
  • Pizza
  • Crisps
  • A bag of chocolate
  • A triple chocolate chip cookie
Okay, that sounds disgusting...as a result of my recent unhealthy eating my body weight has picked up again (oh the dreaded scales). 

I am going to follow up on my diet again! I have not had much for dinner today...and will start to make my own packed lunches. I am determined to keep going, for the sake of my health.

A method I've been using to keep myself from eating too much is to wear something a little tight (but nothing to restrictive!) around the waist area. I usually wear tights and pull them up really high. It looks silly, but it works. Your newly restricted tummy will need a lot less food to satisfy, plus you won't get hungry as easily! I found this a great way to kick start my diet and it really does provide momentum to keep going.

I really hope I can stick with this diet, for once!
