2 lbs in a week is great!!! Those weeks will quickly go by and before you know it, you'll be down another 2 and then another 2, or whatever you are for that particular week. Point is - time really does go quickly and if you stick with it, before you know you'll be 10% down and then 15% and so on and so on.
And forget motivation. What you need is COMMITMENT. To a better and healthier life. That motivation comes and goes and is never around when the goodies are. But that commitment - it's there.
And let me tell you - it's worth it. 100% without a doubt, no question about it. It's worth it. It's worth it. It's worth it. Ya hear that?
I'll say it again - IT"S WORTH IT!!!!!
Why not make some STRICT rules for yourself - and obviously follow through with them? Like absolutely, positvely NO BEER at work. Period. Make a binding, ironclad commitment to avoid it. It's the only way really.
As for the stuff at home. Get rid of it. No one benefits from the junk.
Make sure to ADD in good, healthy, nutritious foods.
Once you stock that house, make a plan. Or make a plan and stock that house. Either way. They are both vital pieces of the "weight loss picture" Map out your meals and snacks in ADVANCE.
Good luck to you. You most definitely can do this. And ummm, yeah, I might have mentioned this already- IT"S WORTH IT. Nothing tastes as good as the sweet joy you get from waking up being a fit, trim and heatlhy person. Nothing.
