Health Changes with help from Daddy

So I started a star chart with Daddy very recently. It's been about a week. It's working so well guys!

 

Two of the tasks on the chart are 'Moderation' and 'Veggies.' As I'm trying to cut down my portion sizes, limit snacks, and eat more veggies.

 

My question to you guys is, has anyone made big health changes, particularly with eating, and how did it go? How did it work? How long until it stuck? What are some things that helped? I have issues with wanting to snack, and also hating preparing my own food. Any tips would be appreciated.

 

Thanks!

Hi! I feel like I'm a bit of an expert on this topic, since I've been doing it for so long! Very similarly to you, my Daddy has made some rule changes that affect my health for the better, specifically regarding food and exercise.

 

I also have a chart. Mine is a chore chart, and it has things like "No Sweet", "Vegetable", and "Exercise" on it. I get a sticker every day that I eat a vegetable, exercise, or choose not to have a sweet. The rewards and adding up the stickers helps a lot with motivation. For instance, if I drink enough water and eat enough vegetables, I can earn a cheat dinner out of my choice. It's something to work for to splurge once in a while!

 

As for snacking, which is my trouble too, try eating more fruits! I use sunflower seeds and nuts a lot, too. Fiber One desserts are good ways to trick yourself into thinking you are snacking more than you are. Same with veggie straws, and healthy versions of chips. It isn't always easy, but it helps that your Daddy is going to be holding you accountable!

I make a weekly meal plan for myself each week and I try to eat around the same time. It helps your internal clock get use to it. I'm a picky eater, in the sense that I don't like to eat the same thing all the time so I look up recipes almost daily. Your Daddy can also help you with that.

 

To help with snacking, it's best if you incorporate lots of nutritional value into your meals so you won't get those cravings. Those cravings usually indicate that your body is lacking in a certain nutrient. Fruits are a really good alternative to candies! Like hislittlecompanion mentioned, you can always have a cheat day or meal once a week. Don't be so hard on yourself because your happiness is also very important!

I'm trying to get healthier too! Daddy and I have thrown around the idea of a gold star system but haven't put it into practice yet. I have a big candy/snacks problem that started around the time I quit smoking 5 years ago. Portion sizes have always been an issue for me too.

 

I might be trading one habit for another, but I went and got myself a vape, and some candy flavored juices to go with it and it seems to be helping quite a bit. The juice I have now tastes like coffee treats which are a biiiig weakness of mine lol

 

The goal is to lose 20 pounds bu October so that I can do all the things I like to do at the haunted house but not hurt myself like I did last year lol!
