Hi there bees!
I got engaged last May and since last August I decided that I start losing weight and so I got a personal trainer, joined a bootcamp and watched what I ate. So far I have lost 30lbs, but as of late when I get home from work I feel overwhelmingly tired all the time and my motivation is sufficiently lacking. I dont know about any other lady bees but sometimes I get craving so much that I binge and then I feel so bad about it and its just a viscious circle. Any advice on what to do when you have a craving for bad food?? Any tips would be awesome! Thanks 🙂

Do you keep these foods in the house? I don’t keep things that I could binge on in the house. It requires more work to go out and get them then.

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Exactly. We used to keep cookie dough and ice cream and stuff on hand for when we had friends over, and then we stopped because we kept eating it when our friends were nowhere in sight. 😉 If I have chocolate gelato in the freezer, I’m gonna binge, but there’s no way I’ll go at 11 pm to go pick up a carton.

FI is bad when it comes to shopping hungry. My grocery list consists of healthy things since I have been following the eat clean diet from this book I have been reading by Tosca Reno. Problem is, FI can eat whatever he wants and not gain a single pound and it seems I just look at food and gain weight. Its not fair 🙁

@peacockbride24: Yeah lots of men have it easier, and it is ALOT easier fro them to lose weight. I injuried my thumb about 2 weeks go and ahve a cast on my hand that alogn with the ehat had kind of kille dmy motivation so I know how you feel.
Try making little goals to get yourself back in… (i.e. today I will work out fro 30 mins or this week I will only eat sweets once a week). I find I don’t wan tto work out, btu as soon as I start, my body feels SO much better, and I”m really happy I did it. Also try things that feel less like workoing out and more liek fun (i.e. rollerblading or hiking). And try to get a friend… that’s one of the things I’ve been lacking a lot, especially since everyoen around me seems to lose weight faster. I know my gym has a special weight loss 8 week program where you do small group personalized training for 8 weeks and they track your weight loss and what you eat and stuff, maybe tryto find something like that. You will get support and friendily competition when working in an environment with people who have the same goal and rroutine with you.
Hope that helps! Also, I’m always looking for a friend to diet with, let me knwo if you’re interested!
