Ive recently started trying to lose weight again, after losing then regaining 4 stone or so in 2016. Today is the end of the first week and I’m down 8 pounds so I’m pleased with that. I did a lot of thinking before restarting, about what I’ve learnt about myself and what went wrong last time, so that I can lose weight again, but in a better way. The main difference is, last time I lost weight through calorie counting using my fitness pal and this time I’ve decided not to count calories. My way of thinking is far too all/nothing for it, which is linked to why I stopped last time.
Week 1 seems to have been a success, but the part I’m struggling with so far is worrying that I am eating too much, since I’m not counting calories. Danger being that I will then cut food down, and give in because I’m hungry all the time... just wondered if anyone had any suggestions for how I can check that I’m eating the right sorts of things / amounts? I guess the scales will tell me in the end, and I’ve been keeping a food diary on my phone in case that helps. I have searched for sample meal plans online but they generally include things I wouldn’t eat.
Anyway, anyone else trying to lose weight?
