FitSugar reader KeepOnKeepingOn is having a hard time sticking to her weight loss plan because she's constantly tempted by her family's junk food. She posted this in the Weight Loss Support community group, so if you have any tips or advice, please share.
I am 20 years old and because of money and school I still live at home with my mom, older brother, and little sister. For the past year I have been working really hard on becoming healthy and losing weight. As of January I had managed to lose 35 pounds in about six months. Unfortunately, I've managed to gain about 10 of those pounds back. The issue is that I'm surrounded by unhealthy food at my house. My family is pretty supportive of my decision to be healthy but they're not interested in trying it out themselves. Therefore, there is TONS of junk food in the house. I've heard that if you know the foods that tempt you, that you should just remove them from your house. But, I live with my family who refuses to remove it from the house. I'm having the hardest time staying motivated when there is so much junk food around and when I feel like the healthy black sheep in my house. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do to keep up my healthy lifestyle? I'm trying so hard but it's tough with all the temptation and lack of real support around. Any help/advice is welcome!
