The best diet is one you can keep. Make sustainable lifestyle changes instead of yoyoing. Check out cico, lose it, 1200isplenty or 1500isplenty. Volume eat veggies, get enough lean protein in, and minimize processed foods. Track what you eat it all adds up. You've got this:)

Thanks! I'm living with my family until late August so fixing my diet is proving to be difficult.

Then increase exercise and watch portion size. Any activity is better than none. It can be hard watching what you eat when theres so much temptation around. I have to put my junk food in a cabinet so its out of sight out of mind. Can you encourage them to eat a little healthier? Not changing up their whole diet but rather using less oil, having some healthier snack options like fruit, and/or adding more veggies? If you offer to help cook 1-2 meals (or help grocery shop) they might be more accommodating.

If you’re on Facebook, join us at Lose Weight, Eat Pizza. It’s a supportive group that has helped me lose 9 lbs so far.

9 lbs is 4.09 kg

First, brave of you to post. Kudos to you for having the balls to do it and admit it. Secondly, the fact that you are badass enough to post your pic here, means you definitely have the balls to lose the weight and totally kick ass. Good on ya, mate!

Thanks man! I realised that I'm a big emotional eater so I know have a better source of my issue


CrayonViking

Yep, that's the first step. Know the problem, then work around it. You look great and you're gonna kick ass!

Check out Lucy Wyndham Reed on YouTube. She also has a group on Facebook. She's a personal trainer and has TONS of free videos on her YouTube, is very supportive, motivating, and kind. Most of her videos are short and you can do them in your living room. She also does a lot of HIIT workouts that engage all your muscle groups and increase your metabolic burn. Most of her exercises don't require any equipment, and the ones that do require simple things like a chair, broom, or small weights. Her exercises look easy but you WILL sweat! Her Facebook group is very supportive and lovely. And like someone else said, consistency is key. It's better to make consistent SMALL progress than to make a big leap in weight loss and then fall back. You want to change your lifestyle and that's only sustainable when you make small incremental changes. Start slowly swapping healthier food for junk. A favorite snack of mine is carrot sticks with hummus. Even if the hummus is not extremely low calorie, it's filling and nutritious. Think health first, weight loss second.
