I totally agree. Variety is the key word here. When we get bored with our food (same old) that is when we start looking around for something different and that is when binging starts. I love looking through food pictures - terrible at following recipes but pictures give me ideas and inspirations - normally, I make my own version of the pictures I have seen.Thank you, I love looking at others food photo too, I mainly take them for my SW face book group. Have been trying to get a bit of variety into menu this time, felt last time was cooking the same things over and over. Good also to look back on when I do get stuck for ideas.
Also love reading others stories to learn from their experiences.
We must remember, this is not a race to get to the goal but make it as pleasant and enjoyable lifestyle. Don't worry about your portion sizes, they will reduce naturally when your body is ready. Feed yourself with as much as right and nutritious food as you can and the pounds start falling off. No two bodies are the same - each of us lose at the different rates and food have different effect on us.
Do what you think is right for you and don't compare yourself with others - it has taken me a longggggg time to realise that. I am not saying not to use others as examples but don't think why I am not losing as much as he/she. Believe in yourself and trust that you achieve what is right for you.
