Struggling

I'm trying to stay on track, but I'm not seeing results and it's making it hard to not eat whatever I want or even overeat. I think I need to meal prep more often and get better at not boredom eating. Sigh. I'm having a rough time.

    I feel like we need a little more info to comment. How long have you been "on track"? What is your routine right now (counting calories, keto, etc)? Tell us about it.

    I guess it's called CiCo (calories in calories out), I try to eat leafy greens bc I noticed they make me feel fuller which helps with the boredom eating.
    I believe I've been trying to pay attention more and get my weight down for the last 6 weeks, but I'm just feeling less confident in my efforts this week so I'm trying to reach out to the community for the first time. Sorry for the vague original post.

    I'm sorry you're going through this. I know it's pretty rough. It can definitely get discouraging. I am someone who definitely overeats. I eat passed the point of full.

    If there's any advice I could give I would say definitely meal prep. Even if it's just a few days worth. Try to set time frames when you want to each eat meal and snack.

    Boredom eating? IMO, the best counter to it is a new hobby (or a revived old one). Bonus points if it's something that requires clean hands (like sketching, needlework, playing a musical instrument . . . ) or creates dirty hands (painting, gardening, carpentry . . . ).

    Thanks for the encouragement, just being able to get out of my head about weight/food is beneficial. And starting an herb garden may be a nice hobby to keep me busy

    I am struggling to keep my diet as well. I count calories, I do some exercise and weight myself everyday. It's but nearly 2 months but I haven't lost any weight. I'm nowhere near overweight, in fact, I am considered normal for my age and height. I'm still trying to loose some bellyfat though. I am not sure what to do!!
