It is okay to be hungry. Being hungry doesn't mean you have to have a snack or think about food.

I would like to say that if you are increasing your level of activity especially if you are doing a routine that includes weights don't cut your carbs by too much, you will need the energy.

Thanks for the tip! I'm definitely not going to cut them out completely, but instead of having them in every evening meal I'll only have them a couple of times a week instead.

I'm going to aim for 7-10k steps a day. Today was a bonus because I had lots of places to go and things to do.

Good luck!!!!

One little advice (I'd wish I follow it myself), instead of cutting off foods/counting callories (which is good you don't do, but still have to maintain a normal amount of callories total), try counting nutrients, make sure your diet is ballanced, in addition make sure you eat the right mix of foods that don't interrupt with each other and everything is absorbed well... you may want to talk to a dietitian about it. I did that when I went vegan just to make sure I eat well.... worked great until my current work.

About exercises, exercising alone is good if you do it right. Basic stuff should be ok, but some flexibility or weight exercises (even simple ones) should be done under supervision, at least at the start of your journey.

Good luck on your journey!

Thank you! I've been really good in reducing the junk food like chocolate and crisps, and increasing the good stuff like fruit and vegetables.

I'm not very flexible at all so this is definitely something I want to work on.

My personal best for number of steps done in a day! My feet are a bit sore but I feel absolutely brilliant, and so proud of myself.

10th March 2019

Weight at 9:31am: 58.4kg. Whaaatt?! A whole 2.2kg down since last week. Obvious reason though, for the past 2 days I've been quite ill and have barely eaten a thing so that's why I've lost more this week.

Exercise:
Spoiler:

Did it once this week on Tuesday. Would have done it again but as said before have been poorly. Still walking to and from uni. Haven't walked to town because have only been once for work, and I don't want to use up energy before work as I spend my whole shift on my feet.

Food:
Spoiler:
Show

Been good with food, no unhealthy snacking again. Obviously had pancakes on pancake day, though. My friend tried tempting me with chocolate digestives the other day but I was good and refused. Unfortunately last few days have been rubbish, barely eating anything. However I seem to be back to normal now so hopefully will be all okay.
