Hi guys & gals
So this will be a complete lifestyle change for me. Previously I have used a big well known slimming club where weighing food and portion control was very loose. My hubby and I are doing this together after he came home from work one day with the books after seeing the success his colleague had. Hubby said he looked like a different man altogether.
I’ve bought all the books and read them. My worry is that my hubby and I often eat at different times due to our kids after school activities and I am self employed and start work at 4am so am often in bed for 8pm.
Cooking separately each evening seems bloody crazy. I could plate his up for him to reheat but not sure that would be very tasty.
I am concerned about how little time I actually have too but i guess i will have to see how it goes. Feeling over whelmed if I’m honest. We have fallen into a trap of just sticking something frozen in the oven.
Also I have a very active job. I literally do or stop from 4am til I finish around 5/6pm and I work 6 days a week (joys of being self employed) I average around 20k steps per day and my ‘lunch break’ is 5 to 10 mins max in the car between jobs.
One more problem….hubby often has a couple of pints of skimmed milk to drink in the evening as well as milk and suger in his tea. He hates all sweeteners (know they are not recommended anyway) won’t touch herbal tea but will have coffee with no suger. I guess I will have to allow for a bit of milk in coffee for him and cut some calories elsewhere. Nightmare as all the planning etc is up to me.
Sorry its an essay. I really really want to do this and love the idea of this being our way of life. I have around 2 stone to lose but I’d like 3. Hubby has a lot to lose, weight unknown as yet as he won’t weigh himself. He knows he has to once we start. I wouldn’t be shocked if he had 6 stone to lose. We are currently ‘running the freezer down’ (again!) Then I’m doing it. Any advice would be appreciated.
Thank you 😊
