There's a First Time for Everything

5th January 2009 – First day back at work after Christmas and the first day of filling in my Weight Loss Resources food diary!

I’ve ‘had a go’ at loads of diets in the past but as soon as I go back to eating normally the weight creeps back on.

Brainwave! Perhaps it’s the ‘eating normally’ that is the issue? Perhaps my idea of ‘eating normally’ is completely out of the ball park? I think, perhaps, yes!

You know the Old El Paso fajita dinner kits? My OH and I would polish one of those off between us.

Now, I wasn’t under any illusion that eating 4 fajitas in one sitting would help to bring my weight down but, I didn’t think it would be that bad. After all, it’s chicken – not too bad, onions and peppers – part of my 5 a day, guacamole – made from Superfood, Avocado and Salsa – another step towards my 5 a day.

How wrong could I be? After researching it in the Weight Loss Resources food database I’ve discovered that, in one meal, I was eating more than what I should be eating calorie-wise, in one whole day! A massive 1940 calories and that is without the sour cream and guacamole that I normally smother mine in!

Working for an online weight loss company, I have access to huge amounts of information by qualified dietitians and experts about what constitutes a healthy lifestyle, how to lose weight and how to keep it off. (Keeping it off being the operative phrase!)

The main point I have gleaned from all this info is that going on a diet is not the answer but, slowly changing the sort of thing I eat and getting my body moving will produce the results I crave.

Weight Loss Resources has helped men and women lose from 1 or 2 stones to over 5 stones and right up to and past an amazing 7 stone with its tools, support network and experts so, here we go!

See you next week,
