I sort of forgot about this post with all the wedding planning!
I don’t have a slow cooker yet, but we’re hoping to get one for the wedding, or buy one with gift cards. Unfortunately I WILL go buy junk food if I have it in the house… I think I actually eat worse when I don’t have the food right next to me! Weird, I know.
Thanks for the encouragement! I’ve ruined my diet a few times already but I think in general I’ve been heading in a bit healthier direction. I think for me, the best thing is to go super gradually also.
Thanks, that makes me hopeful! I’m trying to improve in just one small area at a time. I’ve tried keeping a food journal online and it didn’t help… for some reason writing down “two scoops of ice cream” just didn’t seem to affect me. I know exactly where I need to cut back, the problem is doing it, haha.
Wow… um… I didn’t come here for a lecture, I came here for encouragement. I know exactly what I need to do, but I am looking for advice on how to do it… I don’t need someone to tell me I’m unhealthy, I’m looking for someone to suggest how an unmotivated person like me can do better.
What kinds of fruit were good sweets for you? I sort of like strawberries but I can’t handle them in large amounts, and I’ve started eating bananas but they don’t really help the “sweet” craving.
Unfortunately I am in college right now and don’t have much money… I don’t think nutritionists are covered by general medical insurance, are they? Correct me if I’m wrong!
Maybe my improvement doesn’t look like much to you, but I’m going to go ahread and guess that cereal and a banana is way better than french toast and syrup, or no breakfast at all. I’m also going to guess that soup is better than Easy Mac. If I jump right to perfectly healthy all at once, it’s not going to last… the point of this post was that I don’t LIKE healthy foods, generally, and I’d like to know how to change that. I already know it needs to be changed.
Thanks for the ideas! I know gym membership isn’t covered by my insurance, and I don’t have any equipment, but I’m thinking I’m going to try some work out videos. I hate running, I’ve never liked it, and while I wish I DID like it, it’s not going to be my beginning exercise, lol. And I will have to try the opposite hand thing! Although, I’m sort of ambidextrous, so I’m not sure hwo that will work for me, lol. I’m curious though!
I can’t really afford things like that, and I personally don’t think I’d trust them to actually keep the weight off. Just a personal preference. I think I’d like to be healthier overall too, not just loose weight.
