Hello from an eager beginner

Just need to motivate myself to lose some weight. "Me time" is sparse but when I get some I play ring fit adventure and it kicks my *kitten* every day. My problem is food. Portion control mostly.

    yes, portion control is so different. But i am sticking to it until it starts to feel natural and I can start not measuring again, lol.

    Same issue and add some emotional eating and mindless snacking for me

    I’m the same. Emotional eater and just snack without even realising I’m doing it 🤦🏼‍♀️

    I love Ring Fit!

    I've found meal prepping and logging my food in advance makes it much easier to control snacking and stay within my budget. I can prepare breakfast and lunch for the week on the weekends and pre-log those, so I know what I have to work with for dinner/dessert/snacks for the day. I'll even pre-log and plan for treats like an ice cream bar for dessert, or a beer with dinner, so those are already in my diary and I know I can enjoy them without worrying about going over my calories for the day. And then when the snack gremlin rears its ugly head I can say, do I really need this right now? No, I want to have my ice cream later, so I'll put this back. Or sometimes it's, hey, I have 150 calories to play with today still, I can have this right now.
