I've been a stay at home mom for 5yrs. I just turned 30 and now I'm obsessing about dropping weight before my metabolism really slows. What does your eating habits look like to help you loose?

Mom of two here, one in school and one in diapers. I’m turning 30 in a few months but my experience has been that’s just plain sucks because my calorie intake has to be so much lower than it used to to lose any amount of weight 😭 It’s not fair. Right now I’m on a 3 day fast but usually I try to stick to 300 to 500 cal recently but I did also have Covid.... When I’m not sick and dying I usually take in about 800 cal and I try to run off any extra. Like I actually pre-planned at least 300 to 400 cals extra and burn off in 12-24 hrs.

As a 32 year old I want to add that it's not our metabolism that slows down, but we our selves slow down (which then of course slows down our metabolism). I'm not fidgeting so much anymore because I try to at least look like a functioning adult (people used to asked me a lot why I was so nervous... they don't anymore, however I am still just as nervous all the time).

 

So... we just need to move like 20 year olds :D I mean there was a time when I spent the whole night dancing. That must have burnt a shit ton of calories!

True! Even though our metabolism slows down (10% each decade after the age of 20 I believe is the the current agreed-upon rate) we just have to compensate by staying active, building/maintaining lean muscle mass, and eating less/better. I want to be one of those 70-year-olds that still running marathons!

I'm a SAHM too! I have two kids and I'll be 30 in a few months.
I don't have any advice regarding eating habits. Apparently, any change I make in my diet leads to binges, so I'm pretty much clueless how to lose.

SAHM here of two. Haven’t got any decent advice though, I’m terrible with skipping meals but pick at the bits my little ones can’t or don’t eat (crusts, nibbled to check things aren’t too hot etc.) - trying to get out of it. If it gets too much and it feels like I’ve eaten a lot it triggers binges in secret.

Im a 30yr old SAHM, too!

I actually love being able to stay home (we homeschool too) because I can control what I eat a lot easier and I have a home gym so I just pop in a movie for the kids once a day & grind in the gym for an hour.

The shallow believe in luck. The strong believe in cause and effect.

34 year old stay t home mum to 3 little ones (o had 3 in 3 years oldest is now 5)
I find it hard to find a balance with setting good examples for my kids and managing my eating. I've lost a lot of weight over the last year but its very ridged I dont want my kids to worry about this stuff like I do.

I’m stay at home for the moment. I usually work but taking some time off, which I feel weird about, but my husband seems to like it. I’m a cat mom, does that count? Lol
I’m a bit opposite from some of you though... I found it a lot easier to fast all day while busy at work but maybe that’s just cause I was used to it and not used to being home with a lot of snacks.


its pretty easy to fast looking after kids coz they make so much damn mess and are so busy so im much busier now at home then I ever was at any job.
