205 pounds 5'5 please help I need advice
I don't know how much this is of use to u but honestly I think that u don't need help from anyone but what u need is confidence in yourself and willpower. U need to know that no matter how much people advise u or motivate u in the end the only person that can create willpower is yourself. U don't need to listen to any negativity and stop being so self conscious just take a deep breath and start exercising and hopefully in a month's time u will be closer to where u want to be. I'm not a saint of some kind but please believe in yourself and depend on yourself Cz u have to fix the issue at hand. So just start exercising and do what u feel is right.
Start off small. Thats what i did. Set a goal of just a 5 minute walk everyday. Just 5 minutes. After awhile it will get easier and easier & u will want to walk. Then increase it gradually. Plus give urself 1 dy off a wk. That way if u miss 1 day u wont b too hard on urself. This is what i did & im down 2 pant sizes. Ask ur lil bro or sis to go w u so after awhile they will expect it & it will hold u accountable & help encourage u to go. When i started i was only 10 lbs lighter than u & im an inch taller. So i kno exactly where u r starting from. Also cud u ask ur parents to buy sum fruit for u? Good luck & best wishes!
I'm the same way about the gym. Start with using this app at home. Friend me if you want for support. I created a bunch of short but effective workouts based on personal training I've had and articles I've read... they're challenging but don't involve lots of jumping. If you're heavy it's too much on the knees so I limit them. What else? Oh I have an awesome boyfriend who is WAY into me as I am but he is very much into lifting weights and we workout together sometimes. It's helpful. He wants me to be happy and achieve all my goals-- even if it means my butt might shrink lol
Lastly, eat healthier. If that means buying fish and veggies instead of mani pedis then sobeit. That's my trade off. I do my own nails and put money aside for protein mix and healthy snacks for the week just for me. Start small if you have to. The nutrition is the biggest part.
Hi!! I am new on this app and after reading the comments I would love to know how are you doing? Have you lost any weight yet? I hope you are doing ok. I also want to loose weight. I weight 230. I am feeling motivate after reading your posts. I see others have been in the same situation I am and have successed. I would like to be you weight lost budy so we can motivate each other if it is ok with you. Wish you luck!!!
I am going to the same situation that you are well maybe not exactly the same but almost maybe we could be weight loss buddies motivate each other and help each other get through this message me if you like
Hey girl... As we always say try to get your diet as good as possible. Talk with your parents and if that doesn't help try buy your own food if possible. Diet is the most important thing. Even try lowering the amount of food you eat but of course don't starve yourself.
As for exercise just try walks or runs a few times a week or even some toning exercises. Doesn't have to be hard or every day just a few times a week. I highly recommend walks or runs.
Try not to weigh yourself everyday as weight fluctuates a lot. Just weigh once a week to see your progress.
Hope I could help a lil.
I don't know if I can help you. You seem almost desperate to lose weight in a hurry. It won't happen overnight first off. Second, I can give you all the advice possible but untill you are ready, you're not going to do anything about it. Let me tell you about me. I am a single mom to a five year old little girl. I also am 5'5". I weigh 226 lbs. In Jan. 2013 I weighed 255 and I had had enough. As a personal challenge I gave up soda for Lent. I lost almost fifteen pounds. That's what kickstarted it for me. I challenged myself. That's your first step. Challenge yourself to do something better. Wether it's drinking more water, eating more fruits and vegetables or giving up soda. Next I gave myself a goal. A friend told me about a 5K that sounded really fun. It was the Dirty Girl Mud Run. I'm not a runner so I had to work up to it. I found an awesome Couch to 5K app that worked wonders. After several false starts I finished my first 5K last weekend.
That's your next step- give yourself a goal- but make it a realistic one. Once you accomplish that goal give yourself a new one. And then repeat. It's all about setting realistic goals for yourself. But remember what I said: all the advice in the world isn't going to help you if you are not ready. You have to help yourself. Good wishes!
