Despite throwing up constantly and feeling nauseas I somehow managed to pack up the kilos.
I was a tiny bit overweight before falling pregnant but now I've gained 7 kilos and I'm only 4 months pregnant.
I am hungry ALL THE TIME.
I'll have lunch, finish it and then I want to eat some more.
Every hour I want to eat and when I am eating I can't stop!
I need help managing this because its getting out of control.
Here's a normal day (and this is embarrassing to write..)
6:30am - toast with margarine and Vive (its a low cal "up & go")
Between 8am and 12pm - about 3 cups of tea with 1/4 of full cream and 2 teaspoons of sugar. Sometimes I have a cookie (just one small sized cookie, we get free cookies at work which obviously doesn't help)
1pm - BIG Humungous salad - chicken breast - apple - another cup of tea
3pm - 6pm - 2 cups of tea and a cookie.. or two...
7:30pm Salad with chicken nuggets or takeaway food if my partner and I are tired (which is usually the case).
After 8pm I will have a snack.. crackers, cookies, chocolate.. something!
Any ideas on very low-cal snack foods that are filling that I could take to work?
Can i have Equal with my teas at work?
I am hungry every 2 hours, I've tried cutting back on teas and snacks but it doesn't work because the minute lunch or dinner come around I am ravenous and eat even more than I should.
I really need some help - if anyone wants to give me any suggestions or tell me which foods I could switch and replace, etc - that would be very helpful.
I walk close to 2 hours on weekends and days when I am not working. I used to walk 2 hrs every day but my new job is very demanding - I show up early and don't get home til after 6pm so it becomes impossible to incorporate exercise during the week.
I don't know what type of exercise I could do from home that is safe?
I really need to get a hang of my weight, I don't want to lose weight but I need to learn to manage it in a healthy way because its getting out of control.
Thanks for reading.
