I love food and I hate dieting! Unlike hattie who has pinged back into her size 6 jeans I am still struggling to loose my baby weight over a year on. Most of the time I don’t have time to worry about my figure but when I try and wear some of my favourite clothes and they don’t fit I get upset! What is interesting is that I used to consider myself ‘fat’ before I had a baby and looking back through my wardrobe the majority of my clothes are all a size 8.
I am and always have been a massive foodie I’rtm not satisfied with boring, bland and unsatisfactory meals so I always find it hard to diet. I’ve tried just about every fad there is, cabbage soup, 5:2, Atkins and just plain old starvation. I’ve tired training but ultimately if your diet isn’t good you won’t see any results! The key to weight loss really is a good diet. Finally I have found something that I am actually enjoying and I have been able to stick to. Soulmate food are my new obsession and they are making dieting delicious! They do a variety of meal plans and detox diets catering to a variety of needs. I have gone for their weight loss plan, the plan is tailored to my height, weight and goals. I thought you would be interested to see what kind of food I have been eating.
As someone who gets very excited about food, I know I am on to a winner when I am excited to eat diet food! I get two delivery’s a week and I rush to open my box of food, excited to see what is on the menu! There is a great variety and it is presented really nicely. It is bright colourful, fresh and delicious! The portion sizes I will admit are a lot smaller then I would usually eat but that is probably why I haven’t been loosing weight. For the first few days I felt a little hungry in the evenings but I think that is because I have gone for the package without snacks and haven’t really been adding my own snacks, which I probably should be doing. Saying that I am feeling happy, healthy and energised or as energised as a mum of a teething toddler can be!
I would really recommend checking out Soulmate food they can cater to most needs and have a variety of different packages. I have also tried their juice detox before which was also really good although I think juicing is pretty hardcore especially when your running around after a 14 month old baby!
I will keep you updated on my weight loss journey but I am really pleased to say I am already seeing results and loosing the pounds, I am almost into my size 8 jeans again!
