FML - The follow-up

Today, I received a package in the mail. It was a workout and weight-loss plan that I ordered last week. I finished an entire pizza and pint of ice-cream as I read the guidelines. FML

A date is better really than always tomorrow. And a plan. "Monday the 15th September I start my new diet and exercise plan. I can have a day off exercising each Tuesday, I can have up to 500 extra calories on a Saturday.". A plan with built in easy days stops you from cheating. If one day you can have a portion of nice ice cream, or drinks with friends without guilt, if you do end up eating a pint of ice cream, it's just one day, not a reason to give up.

Planing on calorie intake and exercise can be very difficult, most people give up on that route. Though, it shows results the fastest. Just monitor yourself. Don't eat because you are bored eat because you're hungry, and only eat what you need. Also, eating light amounts of food throughout the day speeds up your metabolism. I like to eat lightly throughout the day and exercise once or twice a week, I would exercise more, but I don't have that much time. Either way you choose, the important part is that you want to lose weight, and you're actually taking steps towards that. Don't give up!

It's a standard Internet joke about people losing weight, where they keep putting off starting until tomorrow because they want to keep eating pizza, ice cream , doughnuts, etc.

OK so you had a bunch of food . Don't let that stop you from setting goals of working out and eating healthy. If you fall off the wagon from time to time, just get back on track the next day. Baby steps in the right direction is better than no steps at all. Best of luck to you, OP!

Exactly. Don't try to cut everything out, that's just asking to cheat and then you'll give up out of discouragement. You can still eat junk - just in moderation! And if it makes you feel better, you could always do 50 squats or crunches after you eat something you're "not supposed to."

Sometimes it's a lot harder than "just eat healthy and exercise!!" Reading this makes me wonder if OP has an eating disorder. Binge eating is a mental illness that usually requires both therapy and doctors to manage weight loss and cholesterol levels and so on.. Even if I'm reading too much into this OP, I hope you can lose weight fairly easily & you're able to keep it off.

There are actual articles that sustain the idea that, in order to prevent heart diseases, a healthy diet is comparatively less important than regular physical activities... so even if you keep on "cheating" or eating some junk, just don't skip your workouts.

I agree with #29. If I want a cookie, I eat one. I just don't buy junk food at the grocery store anymore. So I have to go out and buy a cookie (not a package of cookies) when I want it. It's a good deterrent, 6 months in I weigh 25 pounds less with only a moderate change in diet. It's sustainable.
