    Hi Cindy Vine

    Yes this is the thing about weight loss you need to have the will power to succeed which many don't.

    You have to really want to lose the weight its the same as smoking it is hard to do but if you really have a desire to quit you will. There is  no magic formula its just you who can make the difference.

    The development of willpower comes from within ,it's like a commitment to oneself .keeping one self busy helps one to keep away from nibbling and if you really want to nibble stick to fruits they are the one which help us to keep in good health as well has check our weight gain ,have a lot of water ,do exercises which suits your age do not try and make  yourself tired.If you loose weight too fast then you will gain it fast too .SO slow and steady wins the race theme has to be followed ,do not starve yourself,eat and be healthy but eat something which will help you to keep lean not fat.smile

    What do you call delicious?  Don't deprive yourself only wait until the end of your day.  (and try to have less)  In the meantime use a healthier or more time consuming option.  For example I use cola bears, because I like cola but the fizz blows me up and tires me out.  (I try to save the chocolate for the evening.  I don't punish myself if I fail, but say to myself "there, only kit-kat, I could be having that Yorkie/Dairy Milk now if I had waited")  Also boiled sweets take awhile to finish in the mouth.  The blogger who said fruit has a good idea if you like fruit and can be bothered with the peeling or the juice going everywhere.

    Also, a personal trainer is a good idea to get you started so that you know the best or right way of doing things.  Mine have taught me a lot.  These can be found in gyms though not so much at my local leisure centre.  Have a set time to go, and stick to it though it may take a bit of tweaking initially.  If you miss one don't give up on the idea, look at your reasons for not going, find another if you need to but try to keep going and keep your next appointment.
    Whose going to lose out if you don't?  Only yourself  ...And those who instead of meeting the positive energenic and vibrant and healthy  you see only a negative tired even disinterested shadow of your self that you know you could be!

    Keep on keeping on.  You asked the question so you obviously want, needed to know and do!

    Best Wishes

    It isn't will-power we need to say NO to those tempting snacks. What we foodies need is WON'T-power.  ;-)

    But seriously, it is extremely difficult to follow a weight-loss plan on your own. Join a group, and there will be others to support you. You may not be able to do it on your own, but with the group firmly behind you, anything is possible.

    I am a personal trainer among other things-and one thing works above all others. When you like what you feel like and look like-that "like" tastes better than any piece of food.

    The hard part is getting to the place in your mind, heart and physical body where you do actually like yourself. But, once you get there-the rest is easy.

    Its easy, you just need to avoid getting the cravings.
    You must eat several times a day and not only a salad or a fruit. I would advise you to eat a big breakfast, then a helathy and filling snack, lunch, another good snack, dinner and - if necessary another snack (or before dinner another snack).
    Many people try dieting by eating less.. sure but i - as a vegan - advice you to eat more and more frequently. Of course not these unhelathy nibbles, but healthy stuff, lots of vegetables and fruit. But you also need your protein (lentils and beans are a healthy, low calory way). It will not work to cut everything... like the no fat article... well as a vegan i need looooads of fat.. and i eat masses of food...
    And i need much time to prepare them. I dont even have time to think about nibbles. And also, dont go shopping when you are hungry smile

    If you do that, it will be alot easier my friend!
