I'm new to this whole posting and online tracking stuff. The only reason I did get on is because I joined a gym in December and had 3 free personal training sessions. Well, after being told how unfit I was and that all that can change for a fee...not in my price range, I told the guy that I could do it on my own. Well, it has been 2 months and I was at the gym the other day and they same guy came and asked me if I wanted to check progress with him. Well, needless to say, I haven't lost anything. I wasn't TOO surprised. I mean, I haven't been going consistently BUT the last few weeks I have been. I have been really good about it. So, I figured I would have a few pounds off me BUT NO...this resulted in him harassing me and telling me that if my body was worth enough to me I would find a way to pay for a trainer. SO, after going home crying to my husband, I decided that it is time for a change...I decided to implement weight training into my workouts and after talking to a friend, I decided to keep track of my food very closely and to tweak my meals and exercises even more. SO...I joined this site so I can keep track of my food. However, the problem I have is that this site tells me I can only have 1200 calories a day but 3 trainers told me that I should have about 1400. Its only 200 calories more but I am struggling with which way to go. On one hand, eating only 1200 seems reasonable BUT if it isn't right then I might not lose because Im not giving my body enough calories.
Anyways...I wanted to let everyone know that I am new to this site and I struggle with body image. I really really want to feel comfortable in my own skin and am thinking that maybe having an online support group will help me.
So...HELLO EVERYONE and I will try to put my struggles on here as well as the successes...if they start to come. From blogs I have read, it sounds like I have the same struggles everyone else has.
