Thanks for your flattery. I found a message posted on September 6th, and hopefully this is the one you are referring to.
Pardon me, but I'm american, and my conversions aren't so good. Looks to me like 5 kilos is about 11 lbs. You've got 2 months or so 'til christmas, and so you need to get movin now if you want to drop that weight.
Let's start with the excessive snacking. If you realize you're doing it, then try and stop yourself! Instead of asking yourself "Hey, what are you doing?" try saying to yourself "don't eat now, I don't need to." If you think you need to eat, try finding something healthy - fruits or vegetables. It's still eating, but there are less fat-calories involved.
The hard part you talk about is only hard in your mind, of course - your muscles may follow. Try excercising daily. I, myself, try to rollerblade every day. That doesn't mean I do it, but I sure try. And it helps. Even if you can't do that, do something to energize your muscles so that they start burning fat before you eat in the morning. Something as simple as jumping jacks or running in place for a minute or two.
I really hope this helps you out, Lydia :)
