    That's really cool for your dh, good for him! But no its not quite what I'm talking about. I'm planning on eating what I want to, not excluding or avoiding anything, just bring led by my hunger/fullness, and doing my best to choose the right foods to achieve that. by 'right foods' I mean unprocessed, wholesome and filling, treats in moderation and most importantly getting off this dieting wagon I'm on, I'm sick of it!

    Yep, I live my life like this. I lost all my pregnancy weight (from DD) within 6 months plus a bit more. I have always found (in the past) that the more I over think my food intake, the more likely I am to actually GAIN weight. Whereas, if I just stick to eating when I'm hungry and keeping portion sizes small, the weight drops off. I also currently only do 'incidental' exercise, mainly walking to and from kinder and walking instead of driving whenever possible.

    The good thing about living this way is that I can still have treats occasionally without worrying and it doesn't affect my weight as long as I don't go overboard.

    I did between kids and lost 20 kgs over the course of a year. It was slow at first I pretty much dropped the last 10 kgs in the last coupled of months.

    Then I got pregnant. Lol.

    Umm for me it was reduce and replacing things. Reduced sugar, processed foods, wheat and dairy. Replaced with fruit, veg, whole grain etc. It helped jasper had started eating our meals at that age so I was making healthy and wholesome meals for him.

    I was walking probably an hour a day (rather than going to the park nearest me I went to the one 2klms away or I'd walk the 2klms to dfs work to meet him at lunch etc)

    I tried to avoid being out of the house at meal times.

    It's far far better than a diet.

    Also far better to do that imo than sit there and say "I CAN'T EAT CHOCOLATE FROM NOW ON" because id be eating chocolate by the end of the day. Or "I'll start my diet tomorrow"

    Yep I've lost so much weight over the past year since having my daughter. I'm lighter than I was at 17
    I think its a combination of breastfeeding, being an active person and eating well..I don't eat junk, I don't over do it.. but I do eat what I want and that includes the occasional Tim tam splurge or carbonara. I just dont have the urge to eat like that all the time like I used to.

    Thanks everyone it sounds so easy and I'm amazed it actually feels so easy! Good idea Boobycino about going to the further park, i have to say i struggle with exercise, its hard to coordinate and easy to find an excuse!

    Mmmm BumMum, carbonara, that has been off my list of allowed foods for sooooo long, I might add that to the shopping list he he!

    The main thing I am doing is keeping this visual in my head. An empty stomach is the size of your closed fist, a full stomach is the size of your open hand. I was amazed when I read that somewhere. So I'm aiming for three meals with the volume of my open hand, and I have to make that volume count, so 95% good stuff and a snack/treat if I want it (which i haven't). But then again I've spent most of this year beating my sugar addiction into a pulp so that helps

    I can't exercise. Like I can't go "I'm going to do x to get fit!"

    But lately I've been making random trips to the shop. I need a destination and a reason. I couldn't just go on a 4klm walk but I'll happily walk 2k to and 2k home.

    That's how DH does it, boobycino, he's pretty fit and he includes his exercise in his day, so he cycles to work and walks when he can. I struggle to get out on my own tho, and I can't stand pushing 45+ kg of pram + kids. We get out on the bikes a couple of times a week but I need to find more time and energy, hopefully as the weight drops my motivation and energy will increase :/
