Now two weeks in, my second weigh-in has made me feel very happy! I don’t generally weigh often because the scales would rule my life otherwise. But, you probably know what it’s like to feel the difference in your clothes – flatter tum, standing taller, feeling happier etc…
And so far, it seems I’m losing quite well making Diet Chef work for ME rather than panicking because I’m bored with it, or starving hungry all the time! The key for me, I’ve discovered, is managing the 'extras' in the best way possible to keep me on the straight and narrow. Not beating myself up and having a 'last supper' should I veer off it (i.e. eat the whole fridge and 'start again tomorrow' – not a good idea!).
I find listening to my body helps too – having sensible veggies salads etc, often enough, and using Diet Chef as a solid foundation to my daily diet is working well. After all, I find the meals very tasty and absolutely love the soups! I’m definitely a soup person.
I’m interested to hear anyone’s thoughts about how they’ve coped with the little barriers we come up against whilst on diets? What’s your method? Give me some examples! Here’s one of mine, see if you feel the same:
I try not to eat till I'm actually properly hungry rather than grazing mindlessly, or using food for comfort or when I’m bored (this was the cause of the scales creeping up during a three year office job sat on my bum for seven hours a day!)
Listening to your body is how slim people stay slim, I believe, so I try to ignore the little 'chocoholic' in my head and instead listen to my body in order to decide what to eat from the considerable array of choices in my Diet Chef pack!
So far, so good!
Anyway, more soon. Let me know your thoughts!
