I've been around JM for a while, but mostly on the TTC boards. I don't have any children and my DH and have only been TTC for a few months, but I feel like losing weight may help. I've decided that I am going to start Weight Watchers tomorrow and I thought if I post my progress and have motavation from other women, it may help. I won't be going to the meetings.....I have the books from when I've done WW before. I know it works, the hard part is sticking to it. My husband is a junk food junkie which makes it impossible to receive much support from him. But I'm determined I need to do this. I know I need to exercise more and that would help too, but I feel very unmotavated....like I have no energy. Any tips or advice for me?
I feel for both of you ladies! My DBF is a total junk food addict too! Ice cream, cookies, chips! Why does all the "bad" food taste so good? I just try to keep it out of my sight! Out of sight, out of mind!
daisy15, if you're new to exercise & need some motivation, an easy tool is a simple pedometer. Clip it on in the morning & at the end of the day, see how many steps you have taken. I believe you should aim for 12 000 steps a day. Also, be easy with yourself. It's really hard at the beginning. You'll be working out (and eating better?) for at least a few weeks before you start to see or feel any results. Keep this in mind, cause if you can aim to get thru a month or eating well & exercising, you'll really be on track to losing weight & feeling great!
Remember to be your own cheering squad! That's far more beneficial than that nagging negative voice in your head
