I have had many problems with my weight throughout my life. I must admit that I was basically quite fat up until a few years ago. I eventually decided that I had had enough and went about finding a way of obtaining a weight that I would be happy and comfortable with.
I was a person that had quite a lot of stress in my life due to the fact that I had two jobs. All of the stress would cause me to comfort eat. I also enjoyed eating out in Manchester with my friends and family – and this hardly helped my weight issues.
I considered and read about lots ofprograms but eventually decided that I needed my own form of diet.
I love my food; especially all of the types of food which are what put the weight on. I could not really face stopping myself from eating these foods and therefore this was my weight loss strategy
For breakfast I would eat something which most people would class as healthy food, which would be cerial or toast. I would have a fairly light lunch, such as a sandwich, however for my evening meal I decided that I could eat whatever I wanted. The main thing and probably the most difficult to implement would be the fact that I could no longer eat between meals. I had to stop eating so much snack food!. I am not trying to say that this was easy to do, however I had a need and was determined to lose the weight. I was also willing to stop eating out Manchester!
I realised that I could do with walking more and for this reason I started to leave the car and would travel by foot to most destinations; as long as they were local of course. I also started taking my children to the park at least twice a week. At the park we would play games such as football, cricket and baseball. It is amazing how much weight you can lose by having fun.
