Hello again everyone.
I lurk a lot as a guest but lately I feel I need some help, a push. I have a lot of weight to lose, if you don't mind I would rather not disclose this
I have been losing weight very slowly but I lose some and add more mostly but most of all I know why and I need to stop.
I snack too much..the kids left over chicken nugget/chips or when they have a biscuit I do etc. My meals don't seem to satisfy me but I know this is a habit I need to stop. How did others cope? Do you think because I am heavily over weight my body wants more so feels more hungry? I really struggle. I don't want to join any local groups due to personal reasons.
You are not alone! I grew up really poor and feeling like food was a luxury and that if there is ever food around I need to eat it all right then, so I had to retrain my body and mind that there IS enough food. It can be tough, but what worked for me is to tell myself, "I don't NEED to eat that"...I also had a feeling like if no one saw me eat, then it didn't "count", which isn't true of course.
I started my weight loss journey turning into a "grazer", eating a little bit all the time. It worked for me and for my metabolism and for the way my brain works. I just have to watch the types of things I graze on and it actually worked better than eating big meals...
I think you are on the right road, now it's just a matter of finding what works for you!
