Hello, can I join in?

Post by Kates » Mon Nov 20, 2017 4:05 am

Hello people,

I am a 55 year old female. Married, Mum of 3. I am not actually overweight, but in a few more pounds I will be, things are creeping slowly up.....and now it is silly season!

Snacks are my downfall, a handful of nuts here, a muffin there! I actually eat a healthy diet in general, and I run for exercise as well as doing a martial art.

So I thought maybe joining in here would help me get the snacking under control. I will not starve to death if I don’t have a Lara bar after a class! I can wait until I get home and eat my supper!

And yet I enjoy a coffee and muffin with my husband at the weeken, so maybe this way of eating will work for me. Here goes!

Welcome, Kate! Yes, the bars are really not satisfying anyway. You can do it. :)

You are in an enviable position: not panicked about your weight, etc. I think you'll be very happy. I'd love to hear your feedback after a few weeks' compliance.

Just keep thinking about how good that next meal will be. I've NEVER been sorry I waited for the meal, and am almost always a bit sorry if I didn't.
