Today is day one of following the menu plans with Spark People. I have attempted many, many, many times to lose weight. I've Paleo'd, Keto'd , Weight Watched, Jenny Craig'd, Slim for Life'd, Belly Fat Cured, Nurtisystem'd , Spark'd and considered weight loss surgery. I'm good for at least 3 weeks, sometimes 3 months...but I always revert back to my poor eating habits.
I want to be healthy, I really do. I've got as many excuses as to why I fail as diet attempts themselves. So what do I change this time to really make it stick? How do I change my thinking or my "relationship" with food...because trust me, if I could break up with food, I totally would!
So I'm prepped up for week one - I will fondly refer to this week as "hell week". I feel like I 'm starving. The food looks and tastes delicious, I don't feel deprived, but I certainly feel hungry! I'm drinking water to try and feel fuller and am supplementing with coffee because I heard that caffeine is an appetite suppressant. I'm. Still. Hungry.
Goals for week 1 - Start to dissect my "relationship" with food, Drink more water, Exercise at least 10 minutes daily, Limit caloric intake, Lose 5 pounds.
