So here's my first attempt to use the forum but I post it here as I'd like some advice please
I'm 33, will be 34 this summer. I have no kids I am not pregnant either
I have 187 lbs , and, for my height (5.28 feet), I'm quite huge. I have big bones but not so big as to justify this weight. I need to be 121 lbs.
When I was 31 I lost weight doing about 1 hour of Pilates or step aerobics every day (which I can do no more, for financial and time reasons) and, I guess, just as much because of my diet. It was a diet based on limited portions and I stuck to it at the time. I tried again now and I can't lose weight any more (at the end of my weight loss I had 22 lbs less than I have now, but I put them all back on, and some more). Aside the sports, I'm clear the reasons is I don't stick to the diet.
Here is what happens: I'm hungry all the time, but most especially in the afternoon and evening. I decided to eat only every 4 hours (yes, it's often but now I eat even more often). So, for a few days now I've been trying and here is a pattern. I stick to the schedule in the morning, I find it harder to stick to it during the next 4 hours, and almost impossible, during the last 4 hours (assume we have a 12 hours availability). Bottom line- mid-afternoon until late evening I'm constantly hungry, much hungrier than in the morning. And less able to stick to my plan. I don't know why, I'm probably tired, but is there any other reason ? What do you advise?
Also, is it possible to get some email/skype pals who constantly check on my food and weight and I'd do the same ? yes, some sort of policewomen
I find it hard to log in and trace all the posts (and believe me I don't have the time either)?
I'll try sports at home too. I tried already, but it looks like I get so tired. Maybe if I lose some weight first I'll be more motivated.... And I have excellent reasons to lose weight, I don't lack goals...I don't know what is going on but I need to kickstart my weight loss and maybe I'll figure it out on the way...
Any help would be really appreciated
