What Diet !! Always tomorrow and never starting
I am really needed help as I have just over 2 stone (28lbs) of fat to lose to put me in the healthy range of BMI, and for me to once again feel happy and confident and not hide myself behind big baggy clothes,
I had a baby in Nov 2012 and did really well not to gain too much while pregnant I gained around under 2 stone....trouble is I have only lost the baby and water weight and lost and gained the same weight over the last 15 months
I just don't know where to start I promise myself I will start tomorrow calorie count, or do VLCD ( this is what I did before) or 5:2 etc and I just find an excuse, stressful day not been able to drink enough water etc
I have a few special events coming up and my first family holiday in September .....any words of wisdom ,
How do you decide on what diet to do ?
I have pcos and carbs are not good for me , ( love them tho) can't afford a gym time or money, but do love walking,
thanks in advance
Start Weight 186lbs in Oct 2008 - Got to 132lbs in July 2009.
Maintained till Aug 2011, slowly putting weight back on
then a gluttonous Christmas gained a stone
Then found out I was pregnant
(pcos, Tubular damage problems
tried for 8 yrs. so I massive surprise but so very welcomed )
had a beautiful baby boy end of November 2012
Put on 22 lbs. during pregnancy,
enough is enough time to get back to size 10/8 and be fit and healthy
Start Date 03/03/2014
Start Weight 11 Stone 2lbs !!
Week 1 = ?
Hi wannabesize10 (so do i so do i!!!)
How are you doing? Have you decided on how you gonna make this journey?
My choice of diet and the reasons it worked for me:
I have PCOS as well and am pre diabetic. My body doesnt like carbs at all (feel bloated and ugly everytime I cheat now). I picked Dukan for a number of reasons:
1. No counting anything (I dont cook and have no patience to weigh and measure and log - actually am plain lazy )
2. Eat as much as you want of the allowed foods - which means eat anytime I'm hungry. Have tried VLCD and couldnt cut it (need to chew). Couldnt imagine being successful on 5:2 or similar as I practically munching on something all day (and would get frustrated).
With Dukan I have not felt like im missing out on anything, I enjoy eating out as most places offer a grilled (Dukan friendly) option, have even had cheat days during Xmas and New Year (and 4 days last month ) - but it has not affected my weight loss.
And with Dukan, you are required to walk 30 min a day - since you love walking this will be easy
All the best in whatever you decide to do... you can do it! xx
