Blogging for Weightloss

I have got into a bad habit recently of spending the evenings slumped in front of the telly watching crap and snacking. Some of this is my husband's fault. He is tall and ridiculously slim and due to his job often misses meals, so lives in a constant calorie deficit. He likes to snack in the evenings - oven chips with mayo, cheese and crackers, ice-cream straight from the tub - nothing healthy or helpful to those of us who are weak willed and a bit chubbly.

I have tried diets, the most successful was a Low Carb bootcamp style diet, but the problem is I like food and having always been in active jobs I have never had to be too careful with what I eat. Now I am a mum and no longer working 12hr days mucking out and riding four or more horses I have to be more careful.

Dieting is dull. Being on a diet can make you dull, all you think about is food - what you can/can't eat, what you would like to eat, what you can substitute certain foods for. It can get obsessive, and to be honest I feel that is very unhealthy.

So, my new plan is to blog in the evenings. Two birds with one stone - I get to blog more often and I can't snack very easily while typing.

What could possibly be easier?


  1. Losing weight is tough task. People use to do the exercise and also diet food. Some times diet makes you feel so lazy and your body will give proper response for it.

  2. I often find a freezing cuppa next to me, with its lonely biscuit alongside, after typing for over an hour non-stop; so it should work really well!

    Thanks for adding me to your blog list. Really appreciate it.

  3. You are very welcome :-)

    I like the idea that dieting is bad for you. Sadly, I know my body does well on the LC diet, but my mind doesn't! Being a stay at home mum of small children, cake is a huge part of my day to day life, and cake and Low Carb aren't a great combination.
