Spethy's Nibble Avoidance Blog
My aim: To avoid nibbling everything and anything in an evening when I get home from work.
So for the first time ever I have decided to try writing a diary about my daily food as I attempt to get back on Slimming World on the 1st Feb and focused!
I did Slimming World two(ish) years ago now and lost two stone with it. I adore the plan because it means I can eat pasta until my body feels it is about to turn into a piece itself. However, over the last two years I have put the two stone back on. Partly because the first year after I moved I had a big social life and went out drinking (and therefore fast food-ing) every weekend. Then I met my boyfriend and he's one of these cruel people who could eat 5 large pizzas and will only gain an ounce, and that's only 'cause he's eaten so much food. As a side note he is unbelievably supportive either way so I don't see him as a sabotage at all. The only statement he made was: "just don't lose your bum and hips", but I'm fairly sure that with my body shape I could go down to 8 stone and wilting away elsewhere but I'd still have a big bum...
Anyway, I am really struggling to find the motivation at the moment. I am good as gold in the day, I eat a healthy lunch in work and snack on bananas or apples from my office drawer, plus I'm a teacher so I spend my day on my feet and running around all over the place.
The problem is that when I seem to come home, stuff my face and ruin it all! This is what is annoying me and this is why I'm writing a diary - to avoid nibbling in an evening! I think it is the one reason why I'm now not losing any weight despite trying.
Basically I need some motivation. Tonight, before I set about writing this, I got a picture of a designer dress I want - because it is the one thing I currently "can't have" - and stuck it up on a kitchen cupboard with the measurements. I will look at that every time I want to eat something and think about what I want more. Then when I start getting the urge to nibble I will write things on here to remind myself why it is I'm doing it.
Apologies for the long winded introduction. I hope someone gets some inspiration from me, and I hope I continue to get some motivation and inspiration from everyone else on this site!
