hello
I'm in desperate need of losing weight I think about Exercising on a daily basis but I never seem to get up and do it! I weight myself every morning to make sure I don't gain more then what it said the day before. And if I do I'm in a depressing mood all day.. I over eat mostly around the evening time after 9pm. It's hard for me to eat healthy when I have an over weight mom and dad who buys nothing but junk food and little brothers and sisters who prefer to eat microwaveable food then a cooked meal. My boyfriend is extremely attracted to me, but most of the time I tend to treat him like crap because of my own insecurities I hate the body I've created. I need motivation and I need to feel confident enough to set foot in a gym. I just need help all togather

I feel that. Im in the same position. I have just started in small ways. Like drinking green tea and water or infused water. Cut out sodas. I have the problem with working out I think about it all the time... butt don't. I think if I had someone to workout with or just go walking with would motivate me. But I like your status bc I'm the same. I over eat and dont ever exercise even when I think about it.

Watch your intake and do Tabata, HIIT cardio workouts... Maybe u should workout with your boyfriend:-)

I think that you should have confidence for yourself. But if you need someone for motivation you can ask your boyfriend that you want to change your lifestyle. If he doesn't support you all the way you have people here that would support you no matter what. I believe you should have a fruit after 7pm. For workouts you should start with cardio and a bit of weigh lifting.

I've been in the same situation before, finding something to motivate myself. Now if your having a touch time then start small eating and drinking healthier is important. You would be surprise how much change can happen just by not eating fast food or drinking pop. Dont worry to much when going to the gym, everyones there for the same reason and thats to get healthier. If your not happy with how you look, take a picture of yourself in a bathing suit or something and hang it up in your room and say to yourself im never going to...

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 with something like cutting out soda and go for daily walks. That's what I did. Taking that sugar out of your diet will really help with your weight loss. Just drink water, I infuse mine with cucumber, lemon, lime, fruits and such so I can have a little flavor when I get tired of plain water. Also drink a glass of water before you eat, it'll help with filling you up some so you can start with prion controlling your meals. Once you start getting more active, you'll get the motivation to do more and push yourself :)...

I agree with Ammar.. U are ur self motivator. Don't plan much & just do what u have to do.....NOW

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.

Don't think about working out. Just turn on the music and dance, that will give you energy to keep going.

So I just took one step by signing up for The YMCA i love this place because theres people all shapes and sizes and I'm less intimidated by what people might think for example L.A fitness. I get one week free to try everything out .... Thank you everyone who took the time to help me out sometimes hearing it from different people helps.  


Anyways I'm going to Join a dance class while I'm attending I'm excited!

Question what's a good energy booster for the morning? I'm trying to cutt down on coffee soda and energy Drinks? Energy drinks give me so much energy I'm kind of looking for somthing that would give me the same kind of boost but somthing healthy and it won't Give me a crash later. I tend to get the most tired around 2pm and I'm tired the rest of the day. Any tips?
06 Aug
I also tend to get mood swings so I go for energy drinks to keep me going. Weird to say this... But I think they make my mood better? I'm more happier. Mom says I might be lacking some kind of vitamin?

Have an awesome recommendation on an energy drink that gives you no crash, jitters, sugar free. Filled w/vitamins & amino acids.

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!

I'm everyone feels this way. But you have to find out what works for you. Always drink plenty of water. A healthy breakfast in the a.m.   If you're a morning start off slow grab some earphones with music and hit the treadmill . I myself started off walking or doing short workout on here in the a.m. and a little in the p.m.  at least 10 minutes to a hour Monday through Thursday and I dropped my weight. I went from 253 to 206. Now I'm bk at 238 and hearing to drop down to 180. You just gotta really want it! Hope this helps!
