I used to be a 200 lb smoker.....quit smoking and went down to 120 lbs....but it took me a yr. Find excercise you love, walk or bike doing errands, and we all know what we should and shouldn't eat, instead of making excuses tough it out for 1 month only. By then the habit is formed. Tell yourself it's just for a month only. My weakness used to be ice cream, so I replaced it with low fat, low sugar frozen yogurt. After a month I had a bite of real ice cream and it was so gross!! All I could taste was the fat!
Good luck! I kept it off for 13 yrs now....plus had 2 children and went to my pre prego weight by choosing healthy. The ironic thing is now that I'm almost 40 I'm struggling with peri-menopause and gained 15 lbs. I still lead a very active lifestyle running and working out with other cardio and weights, and still can't lose these bloody 15 lbs!! I now struggle with too many periods, hot and cold spells, depression spells and feeling PMS alot due to this peri menopause.Any one have any ideas???
