And with this last bit of weight I have put on... I have got these really visible stretch marks on my stomach which I have never had before, and it just makes me panic every time I think about it. And my response to stress is to eat. Which makes me sad, and then I feel like chocolate :(
Any tips? Any help?
Substitute your snacks for healthly ones. Lots of fruits and veggies! Eat salad before lunch and dinner to help fill you. Eat smartly. If you had pizza for lunch don't plan on cheese burgers and potato salad for dinner. I tend to save my calories for dinner. Usually I have Greek yogurt for breakfast, salad and soup for lunch and a piece of fruit in there. This leaves me WIDE OPEN for dinner... and dessert if I'm craving it.
Water. Water. Water water water. Don't waste calories on sugary drinks! They even have water zero calorie flavors for the water.
What's really helped me is weight watchers. They have got me into the habit of eating well. Even when I'm not losing I'm maintaining which is REALLY good for me. I've lost 16 pounds without changing my lifestyle, only my eatinf habits.
Who buys the food in your house? You may want to buy your own or give up buying "junk". Lean meats, veggies, low cal products (bread, mayo) and other whole foods! If its not in the house you will be less likely to eat poorly.
Also, bring your lunch or other meals! Again less likely to "grab and go" a slice if pizza or a cheese burger. Posted via Mobile Device
