I choose the higher calorie plan because I am breastfeeding and don't want to risk losing my milk, and so far in the past two weeks I think I have lost about .4 of a kilo. Not amazing weight lose, but a lose is a lose.
So I am not going to be down to my former svelte self anytime soon, but it is convenient - I don't have to think about what I am eating from breakfast, lunch and snacks. And it is healthy. I choose the breakfast, lunch and snacks plan, mainly because I want to make sure dinner is a family affair and I am eating what my children and husband are eating. I grew up in a household where my mum was continually on a diet and hence I have always had diet and body issues. Not mums fault at all but it definitely played a part in how I now view my eating habits, some really good, some not so good. Therefore I want my daughter in particular to see that a balanced diet is the healthiest option.
Anyway, exercise is the next step. The walking starts TODAY.
