I've been battling 10-15. I've been battling this excess 10-15 lbs for way too long and starting to feel a sad realization that I may just have to accept this soft, roundy, pudgy body I've developed, is my new body for what's left of my young life. I've never been "skinny" but when I look back at my body when I first started realizing I wanted to lose weight in highschool (2000) I did the whole slim fast and lean cuisine lifestyle. I was what is now referred to as a skinny fat girl. I'd kill though to have that body back knowing what all I know now, and get where I had wanted. I haven't been able to get down below 130 and stay there in about 10 years. My default weight used to be 125ish. Nothing will change. The upper part of my abs was always good. No fat, could see my ribs, and one day I developed fat there too and haven't seen my ribs in a long time. I feel like I'm wearing a pillow on my stomach. I splurged and had sculpsure on my lower belly 2-3 months ago but it did nothing. My upper body is so fluffy, I can't stand it and hate my reflection.
I partially blame my bf because he is usually the reason I get derailed as he doesn't seem to care about fitness goals. Also alot of my choices have been forced based on "doing what I have to do" vs. what's best for me, for keeping peace in our relationship.
Instead of trying to find jobs that are right for me I've been rushed into crappy high stress jobs that take away my free time and then all he wants to do is sit around drinking beer and the end of the day and it keeps me from being as active as I'd like. He started a daily schedule for himself, where from 6:30-7:30 is exercise and he hasn't done it since the first two days.
I get into a really good thing, start seeing great results as if I may actually make it, and get knocked off track. Over and over. Starting to lose motivation as I put so much hard work in just to end to back where I am.
I truly don't know how others do it. I feel blessed that my goals are so ridiculously within reach compared to the long road so many have (and still do it) yet I can't get there. I've never looked like this in my whole life and is like nothing works.
Just started a new work from home job and I knew the sitting all day would really like me, especially since I'm already struggling, and I just don't seem to have the time (or energy) to workout anymore.
I'm in training 10:30-7 and also juggling a really intense class for school this semester. Have neither worked out or done any school work so far. All I want to do in the morning is sleep in, however badly I wish for the motivation to jump up at 6 and spend 2 hrs.
It's getting cold out now, rather suddenly, so I don't even want to go for a jog or walk. In the end I feel like even if I do, after sitting for 8 hrs what difference will it make?
Just feeling really bad and very depressed about how I look and not being able to change it. I did great over the summer when it was beautiful weather and I was still homeevery day, out on LOA from my last job for covid 19.
I just don't know how ppl lose all kinds of weight and get these amazing fit bodies- AND KEEP THEM!!!?? Like I don't know about you but life happens. Like all the time. Not just Christmas or getting injured it whatever. Like weekly. My bf will make family size bowl of potato salad to eat all week or I'll spend every day running around in whatever free time I've got getting errands done, or we go to the lake and end up at a neighbours bonfire drinking a bottle of wine and then smores martinis.
How do you stay on track without giving up real life? The things in life that are unplanned and make living life enjoyable? Not going to live the rest of my life drinking green tea with stevia at a bonfire or let all the food my bf decides to make over the weekend go bad. We try to compromise but....
I cry or feel like crying every night and don't know what to do. I hate living like this and wish I was one of those people who just had the kind of lifestyle that enables getting and staying on track.
That said, I have work at 10:30. By the time I got into a good workout this morning, showered and put on makeup, it'd be late since it's already 9. So much for a long workout this morning. Much needed sleep- or fitness?
