Finally finding my feet :)

Think I'm slowly getting this dieting lark

Not managed to get on the forum much in August (too much been going on), but feeling better about myself (a lil bit). Think it's time to get it sorted

Realised that two things are holding me back. Portion control and drinking water. I'm not so bad with what I actually eat.

Portions aren't too much of a problem (going to use one of the kids dinner plates ). I kinda realised this last night when we had chilli and you naturally serve up and it fills the plate (even though you could do with eating less).

Water I'm having a problem with. I used to have a bottle in the fridge that I tried to finish each day... just keep forgetting

Anyway, the bonus is I'm now (after putting a little bit on and then losing it again) under 14 stone and feel good about losing some more

Congratulations on getting back to it. Water can be boring, could that be what makes you forget to drink enough? If that's not it you could try filling a flask and keeping it close to you through the day.

I keep an insulated bottle of water near me, if the water gets warm (which is seldom) I just toss a few ice cubes in it. You could do the same, the one I used is a Camelbak accessory for biking but I don't mind using it off the bike.

Oh shite, you made it to the next stone before me although I've switched to maintain now! Well done for getting back on it though!
