So my boyfriend was supposed to come up to visit me on Thursday (he lives three hundred miles away). The night before, he tells me he can't come and that we'd talk about why in the morning. He doesn't want to talk for a whole month. I get three days or a week, but he doesn't want to talk at ALL for a whole month. we've been dating for nine months now and I find this ridiculous. He says this isn't a break or breakup, but what else am I supposed to think it is?

So anyways I want to work out like crazy and push myself to become tougher and able to workout so much longer. Losing weight is a huge goal, but ultimately it's the strength I'm looking for, to play water polo with. I'm using this excuse of his hiatus to try and work out every spare minute of the day. I felt like I should say something to the community here, because I need a lot of support and love to do this. Clocking in right now, yes, right absolutely this second I'm writing this I'm 265.8. I want to get down to two forty by the end of this month. Do you guys think that's enough time to lose twenty five pounds? Let me know!:)

On days that I'm overwhelmed I do an intense workout to get my mind out of it and get happy thoughts. I also listen to positive encouraging songs that help me focus and be more happy. I listen to christian music and it has helped be better not only spiritually but also mentally so good luck and God bless.

Not to discourage you, but 25 lbs in one month seems to be a steep target. You should lose 2 lbs a week max to keep healthy. During the first few weeks the loss rate will likely be higher than that though. In any case, 25 is just unrealistic! You better set a doable target so you won't be discouraged at the end! In any case, good luck. Always remember that any lost pound is a success!

I totally agree with Haitham
You want to be realistic the first week if eating healthy you can lose 3-4 pds. Anything after that should be an average of 1-2 pds a week, that way it stays off!  When you lose weight to quickly your chances of gaining it back is high!
Good luck on your goals and remember your journey should be about YOU and Noone else!

Wow, I love how you are channeling your frustration! You got this! I have recently put on weight, possibly due to age and recent lack of motivation....you inspire me to get going! I don't know if you can lose 25 lbs in a month, ( possibly being too big of a goal), but you are on the right track! I'll be happy to cheer you on!
