Are you motivated to lose weight?

If you have a wedding to attend or want to look good for event but want to lose weight then start now.

Often when we have an event in our life when we want to look our best, that can be a good motivator to lose weight.  The further away it is though can be the reason to put off changing your eating habits until suddenly you find yourself with a month to go and you haven’t lost a single pound.

I can remember many times when I promised myself just after Christmas that I would be slimmer for my summer holidays only to find myself a few weeks before I was due to go desperately trying to find things that would fit me.

So whatever your motivation is for losing weight, whether it is an event, or to improve your health, don’t put off till tomorrow what you could do today or it will never happen.

I have special offers running in February for people who sign up to Weight Away Plans so what are you waiting for? Get help now to change your eating habits and lose weight for life not just that special occasion!

How many of your clothes fit?

One of the biggest problems I had when I was overweight was having a wardrobe full of clothes but only being able to wear about 20% of them.

The other 80% were made up of things that had fit at one time but now were to too tight or really didn’t look good. Or were things that I had bought intending to lose weight to get into.  Often these still had the label on.

At one time I had clothes from a size 12 to a size 20 and at my heaviest was struggling to get into the 20’s.  So when I started to lose weight in 2009 I decided to get rid of the things that were too big as I went along so that I had nothing to grow back into.  One thing I did find that as I went down in size some of things I had held on to or had bought to slim into no longer suited me or were totally out of fashion.

Now that I have a wardrobe full of size 10-12 clothes only in different sizes because of the brands life is so much easier and I am certainly not wasting money buying clothes that I will never wear.

So if you have a wardrobe where only 20 % fits I can help you to lose weight and help you get a wardrobe full of clothes that you can wear with confidence.

Trying to lose weight -Are you giving up anything for Lent?

I have decided to start posting my blog on Sunday Evenings as I hope that this will enable people who are looking to be motivated on their weight loss journey to start the week on Monday with anything they have found of interest in my Weight Away Motivate Monday Blog

This week sees us starting the religious build up to Easter with Shrove Tuesday known as Pancake Day, followed by Lent. This starts on Ash Wednesday for approximately 6 weeks until Easter Sunday which this year falls on Sunday 26th March.

The traditional purpose of Lent is the preparation of the believer through prayer,penance repentance of sins, almsgiving, and self denial.

So whether you are religious of not, if you decide to deny yourself something you enjoy, this can provide a focus for you to kick any problem you have with eating.

Personally I find chocolate hard to resist and although I am careful to only eat it in small amounts I think it is easy to become complacent and just start having a bit more and then of course this can become a slippery slope.  I have decided therefore to give up chocolate for Lent.  This not is not for religious reasons but just to keep my chocolate eating in check.

I am no saint however as I have had a dry January giving up Alcohol during January up to my birthday on 14th February so while I will not be eating chocolate I will be able to have a glass of wine.

If you are having a pancake on Tuesday you might find this a useful lower calorie recipe.

Fruity Pancakes

Serves 4 (2 each)

170 calories per serving

Ingredients

  • 125g wholemeal plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 300ml skimmed milk
  • 1 tsp olive oil for cooking the pancakes
  • Mixed berries (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries)
  • 4 tbsp low-fat yoghurt

Method

  1. Place the flour into a bowl. Beat the egg, milk together, and then slowly add to the flour. Stir the mixture until a smooth batter forms. Leave to stand for about 20 minutes, and then stir again.
  2. Brush a non-stick frying pan with the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add 2 tablespoons of the pancake mixture and shake the pan so that it spreads. Cook the pancake for 2 minutes, or until the underside is lightly browned. Flip over and cook the other side for a further minute.
  3. Keep the pancake warm while you cook the rest. The mixture should make 8 pancakes in all. Divide the pancakes between 4 plates, top the pancakes with the mixed berries and yoghurt and serve.

Special Offers at Weight Away

So here we are at the start of February and how many of us have managed to stick to our New Year Resolutions.

I know that every January I do have a ‘dry’ month which I keep up a bit longer until my birthday on Valentines Day.  Because I know that this is a short time just six weeks, I do find it relatively easy to stick to although I am not a big drinker but do like a glass of red wine.

If though I had resolved to give up chocolate even for a month I know I would have struggled because no matter how healthily I eat now, chocolate is still something I crave.

This is why giving up totally something you really love is a recipe for disaster when it comes to losing weight.

This is why I tailor all my Weight Away Plans individually to help people lose weight but be able to do this without feeling deprived.

I am continuing my special offer for another month so that if you sign up to Weight Away in February you can pay for 3 months in advance and get the 4th month free.
