I have had three children and after them all I lost most of my weight (was around 180 lbs), but even before I was slightly over weight. Last November I got put on an implant birth control and since then I have gained about 60 lbs(now 245lbs)!! I have no energy, no motivation, and no work out or diet buddies. I'm not sure what to do or where to start, but I need to lose this weight!! Any tips are greatly appreciated!
Thanks in advance!
Sorry in advance if I post to much, but I want to keep a log of what I'm doing.
-Had eggs and some watermelon for breakfast.
-Completed Exercises for Starters!
#feeling the burn.
-BLT for lunch
-Chicken and rice for dinner
-Tried squat, got halfway through it which was about 55 squats.
Start doing squats and don't stop. Tell yourself you have to do this until squatting is a daily routine. When you feel like stopping, don't stop. You're not done. When you're tired and it burns that's when your workout really starts. Do squats, lunges, most can't do planks but work towards being able to do them. Don't set a number in your head per set, just push yourself and do as many as possible. When I am lifting I might hit 12 before it starts to really burn and I start tiring out. But if I only hit 17, I feel like I only did 5 real working reps. That's where my real work and effort happened. So always push yourself to a new goal each day until it becomes habit. You'll be surprised! So never give up or quit no matter how tough it gets. Everyone is here for the same purpose. To better themselves. It's the ones who don't give up that are the alphas and will always dominate. Keep a clear mind with no doubts and always beleive you can and always tell yourself you will. When people try to down talk, remember at least you're doing something. You can do this so get up, start squatting. Start lunges. Start walking. Just do something! Drink water eat lean and healthy and you'll see the changes
I know what you're going through. I lost 90 lbs in 9 months 6 years ago. Then in the last two years I gave birth twice and put it all back on. I'm currently at 250 from 263. It's hard to stay motivated and stick with it when I have young kids, a husband, and teenager to keep up with. I try to do all my workouts after 10 pm when everyone is asleep and I prep healthy meals when I can so food is always ready for me and I have no excuses to eat bad food. I wish you all the motivation and good vibes and hope you are able to kick some a$$ with your weight loss journey!
