Well done Tubs it really is making little changes trying to take on too many at once is overwhelming and I find it is easier to fail when it’s too much.

Winter is definitely harder and not having the incentive of a party frock to fit into

My feeling low earlier in the week turned out to be covid!! I am shocked and stunned I am the most obsessed person when I’m out of the house and when I come in. It really knocked me over to think I’ve managed to come into contact with it. Thankfully mild symptoms and hoping to pick up and be fully well again soon.

I mentioned a couple of months (maybe more) ago that my cousin had reached out to me to help her lose weight, well we no sooner got started then she had the call to have her shoulder operation (that was cancelled in May) so she couldn't come to get weighed anymore. She was in pain and couldn't be bothered as we all understand and she put on more weight. Of course we were the in tiers preventing us going to other peoples houses I tried to help by technology but she wasn't in the right place.

Just under 2 weeks ago she said please please please help me I am putting on more weight and I am so unhappy. By this point I wasn't feeling great but I sent her over a list of meal ideas based on what she said they liked.

She lost 3lb in week one. She's on week 2 now, I helped her find something to make with chicken for tomorrow night, something new for the family I am so proud of her for trying they are typical of many stuck in a rut they eat the same things week in week out, yet her 2 boys will try anything. I am trying to encourage her to do some exercise (they just don't do anything very alien to me) I said even taking kids to the park and running about with them play football, chase them just move more. When we can I will get her out with me.

Posted too soon... you hit the nail on the head by basing meals on things she likes to eat, it is very hard to diet on foods you dislike however “healthy” they are, it has to be a sustainable lifestyle change.

I believe so don’t eat things you don’t like pick your favourite recipe and adapt it,

They are terrible for a takeaway so I’ve given her ideas to make a fakeaway instead but have a takeaway or a meal out (currently also a takeaway) once a week last week that was Sunday lunch from a local restaurant

She loves a garlic bread with pasta so she’s now making one using a wrap with a bit garlic
And low fat cheese she said she likes it it’s like a pizza garlic bread and fraction of calories. She made her own air fryer chips and breaded fish in the oven yesterday.

I also said to cut out one snack a day have crisps or a biscuit, swap 3 cans of pop for water have the pop as an end of the day treat. It’s small manageable changes that is all. I jus hope I can help get her there.

Hoping some new recipes help inspire them too.

Got something to say?
