Hi! I have started this journey in '15qsa0xisykoh6.jpg this photo I was 273! Yes, I know I looked like miss piggy!
I knew I needed a change, so I started here and I love it! I make sure I count my calories everyday(just recently I messed up my year streak, but thats ok! Im back on it! I walk 3 to 5miles everyday and I take in about a gallon of water. I love cardio and spin classes! Honestly cardio is like my best friend5koi73ggkdru.jpg now... This picture I am 223! I do not understand why!?! I want to be 200lbs already. Alot of ppl think I am, but im not. I do clean eat it and I even started weights.. Though I really dont like weights(idk). Im just starting to feel defeated. So any advice? Would love friends! Add me on IG (fitgurl_wan2b) and on fitbit ([email protected]) so you can see my regular routines and etc. I love meeting new ppl and just having the motivation and advice to reach my goals!

    Oh ok. That's a bit above average height. That's why you probably don't look it. I wish I could be taller. I look like a oompa loompa at 200 :(

    Thanks. Yeah I am going to keep pushing regardless even though I feel like I will never reach goal. You keep pushing as well. Again you look great and you look like you don't have much more to go.

    You look really really good right now. I would drop the calories more as we tend to underestimate them.

    Don't let that loser Discouragement trip you up when you're so close to success. Keep doing what brought you this far. You have lost weight, your TDEE has fallen. The food plan you had been successful with probably needs some tweaking, but that's just a small tweak. You can do it and you know you can.

    Stick with it! The number on the scale may not change but your body changes as you burn fat and gain muscle.

    I think you look amazing. Im just as tall as you and i looked way bigger than you do now when i was 175lbs you obviously carry it in good parts of your body. Dont always worry about the scale. Check how your clothes are fitting and how you feel when you look in the mirror and at photos. And start using a measuring tape to measure yourself. You can get smaller without the scale moving.

    I think you look very nice. Who cares what the scale says?! Really. Let's think about this - how would anyone ever know what any of us weigh unless we tell them? @ninerbuff always says- unless you walk around with a scale attached to your back to broadcast your weight to the world, then who would ever know anyway?
    You look great, so don't put so much stock into the scale number. Instead track other victories like how you look in the mirror, measurements and so on. If your happy with how you look then who really cares about the scale anyway? Keep on doing you and forget about the scale number.

    You look great! Don't lose your motivation! Being able to lose 50 Lbs is amazing! You are making great progress! I totally understand feeling defeated, when I reached 10 lbs lost I was SUPER excited *but* when I reached 20 lbs lost I was unable to celebrate it felt unreal in a bad way, I am not sure how to explain the feeling. Now that I have reached 35 lbs lost I have that excitement back. It is like a roller coaster of emotions! Just keep going! It is a long ride but you know you will be happy when you reach your goal!
