I have been trying to loose weight now for 3 years. My goal is to go from a uk size 10 to a uk size 8 without having to squeeze into them 😕 so probably need to loose around 12lbs ish maybe a bit less.
My problem is I don’t stick to anything. I’ll loose like 6lbs and then gain it all back sometimes more. I can’t stick to healthy eating for long. Food is definitely my biggest problem. I joined the gym a year and a half ago and loved it but since COVID hit I haven’t been much at all because of lockdowns. I couldn’t get in to the whole exercise at home. I’m really struggling mentally because I hate to way I look and the past few summers I’ve felt so uncomfortable and I promise myself that next summer I will be at my goal but it never happened 😕. Is there time to get near my goal by June?
So I’m hoping to get advice and tips as to how anybody started out on there journey? How much did you cut out in the beginning? How do you still manage to maintaining/loosing weight?
I’d be so grateful to anyone that could help me ☺️. Sorry for such a long post!

Here is a different approach. You won't get satiety with a plant-based diet for long because you have to eat soooo much to get in enough protein which leads to over-eating calories. I agree that some fasting will help. Here are a couple of things to consider doing: 1. go at least 12-14 hrs at night w/o food 2. no snacking, go at least 4-5 hrs between meals, this may mean only 2 meals a day but get in enough calories, this will be a game-changer. 3. Listen to Dr. Ted Naimen on any podcast as he can simplify the P:E ratio concept (protein to energy). You are not losing because you have or are getting too much ENERGY (E) which is fat and carbs. Decrease one of these and the ratio will help in achieving your goal. Get the protein amount right for your body and fill the rest of the calories or macros with the energy part/fat or carbs or a good mix of both.

I've found that lately when I log in, in the morning, that exercise calories have been added back into my daily amounts thereby reducing my calories for the day, and I don't understand why. anyone else seeing this?
I have set myself at "sedentary" level which gives me 1,330 calories per day, and this morning I had 56 deducted for exercise?
Also, I do a lot of walking, which using my fitbit can run around 800 - 1000 calories "earned" during the day. I have been told that I should be eating them back, and that I shouldn't. I figure a 20% inaccuracy rate. Should I be eating back at least a portion of them?

INTERMITTENT FASTING....Not for weight loss but for CONTROL. I'm doing the same thing and it has helped tremendously. Perspective: I am a mom of 3 in medical school. My children are 4,5 and 6. So when I tell you that IF and then implementing calorie restriction during your eating window are pure gold in getting started I don't say it lightly. I am under a lot of stress and just prohibiting myself in this way has given me so much confidence in my ability to control my own "hunger." Don't be afraid that it won't work. Because your body will adjust and you won't feel the same level of hunger after a couple of days. You don't lack will power, you lack self- control. Think about it for a moment. Download the Zero app in addition to this one and take back your life. You can do it.
