Ok guys, I'm starting day one of, yet again, another diet. The first day is the hardest for me because I can always "just start tomorrow." I really need some motivational/encouraging words from anyone to help me. Thank you in advance!
Maybe it would help you to start slowly, and think of it as a lifestyle change instead of a diet. One of the things I did was switch from full fat milk to non fat milk in my coffee. Since I drink a lot of coffee, it adds up. Some people talk about giving up soda as a first step.
I started out trying to eat mostly non-processed foods and lost that first big chunk of weight at the beginning without really trying. Eating clean sort of forces you to eat fruits and veggies and not eat Twinkies. That's why it works.
I've had a lot of "I'll start tomorrows." Then I'm good for a couple of weeks, then I make up some excuse to eat junk. Good luck to you! I hope we all can find what we need to remain motivated!
I started taking Alli last week. I don't know if that exactly is helping me lose anything, but I'm deathly afraid of eating too much fat because I don't want any "treatment effects."
Hope your first day was on track!
