After 3 weeks of slacking (moving house, holidaying, Easter etc etc) I'm well back on the wagon tomorrow, and will once again be back on here a lot to keep me accountable, this site has helped me loads over the past few months.
I can't suggest too much really. But would say, don't abandon going out for your regular Sunday lunches, use this as your 'treat' for a good week, I find allowing myself to be realistic works far better than trying to completely change my life and be miserable.
As for exercise, have you spoken to the staff at the gym or even better your GP about their advise on suitable exercise you can do without setting off your asthma?
Good luck on reaching your goal, I hope this site helps you as much as it helps me! Do you have a specific food plan in mind?
2013 is going to be MY YEAR! Focusing on good food choices and exercise, the rest will follow!
Taking a break from the scale, but BACK WITH A BANG! When I'm back in the UK in April 2013 I hope to be lower than 168, which is from July 2012ish and the lowest I got before some regaining. Until then, it's all about good food and exercise and no obsessing over numbers!
I am an asthmatic, I had a bad attack this morning thanks to my husband spraying deodorant in the bathroom before my shower, really rubbish start to the day.
I hate the gym but I find things like aqua aerobics helps as the water and the moister in the air doesnt bring on the coughing and full on attacks.
Remember you dont have to give up your life with your mates eating out and socializing, just all in moderation. I still love a good meal or night out
Hy Miss Lydia, Missy! I never thought here would be an English person defending Scottish weather but- I went to Aboyne over Easter (Nearest big Town- Aberdeen) and the weather was HOT! Went for some lovely walks there.
Congrats on stopping smoking.
Perhaps avoid the snack machine by brining in healthy snacks - bits of fruit, some of those little cheesies and some oatcakes or something???
