I have been trying to lose weight for a while, when I try to get help or support from my friends and family, they laugh and discourage me. I had baby 6 months ago and it is harder to eat healthy and get in shape. I just want some workout buddies who can help me in my journey.
Current weight: 201lbs
Goal weight: 150-160 lbs

Omgosh. Me too! Except that, everyone around me is very supportive. Almost to the point of being overbearing, as they try to tell me exactly what I should or shouldn't eat, etc. Lol. So no problem in that area. However, I'm so lazy it seems. I have 2 kids..and am in college again trying to get my degree. So maybe I'm tired, but I think if I could lose about 60 lbs I will have so much more energy. Exercising will help energy levels too I believe.

Yes! I'm thinking getting in shape well give me more energy too. This is my first baby and he is a handful lol. It's easier to just grab quick unhealthy food than to actually think and prepare meals

It seems to me that your friends and family do not actively work out, and quite frankly... they could be a bit more supportive. You already have a goal of losing 50 pounds, which is great....however....now you need a plan!

I recently lost about 60 lbs which was a long and tedious battle, and what helped was making a S.M.A.R.T plan.

 

Specific: You need to be specific in what you will do. Are you going to diet? Exercise? both? Will you be doing swimming? Riding a bicycle? Jog?

Measurable: You already know that you want to lose 50lbs, so we have that covered. I would suggest that you also measure yourself every 2-3 weeks to monitor your progress.

Achievable: 50lbs is easily achievable once you set your mind to it!

Realistic: Your plan must be realistic. You will not be working out 7 days a week with a 6 month old baby. Perhaps start off with 2-3 times a week and work yourself up from there?

Timely: Set yourself a timely goal. 12 months? 18 months?

 

Good luck with your plan! and remember...

 

 

YOU CAN DO IT !!!

Ugh...had 2 kids, both C sections. After my first, I weighed 210. I went down to 160. After my second was up to 190. Went through a bad back, divorce, and depression. Started with just walking and progressed from there. Now at 166....will be happy at a goal of 160 set by my Dr. Plus I'm over 40!!! So don't give up honey. You can do it if you want it bad enough!!!!
