Thank you all so much for your wonderful replies-- and for those standing up for me in my defense. I appreciate that so much. I would never use fasting as a means of punishment-- I used to, and I would be so miserable. It would throw me off completely because It'd lead to me pounding it so hard at the gym on a growling…
There's a lot of things to address really, but being healthy should be the overall goal and if you're determined, then it CAN be achieved! It takes guts, willpower and strong determination. Patience is key, it's not going to happen overnight and it will require you to get out of your comfort zone. Being healthy doesn't…
Interesting! So it all boils down to trial and error basically. Alright, alright. I guess all there is for me to do really is to stop being so scared and actually give it a shot.
I know. Can't ya tell there's a lot of psychological problems behind all the weight loss? I just want to know FOR SURE and maybe looking to find that one answer where I go "Oh! Okay! So it's NOT the end of the world! This person knows what he/she is talking about" Looking for an answer from someone with a similar situation…
I think that you're depriving yourself TOO much when it comes to your nutrition plan (no such thing as diets). You need to find a way to work some guilty pleasures into your daily meal, even if it's a chocolate bar or a biscuit now and again. Work them into your calories. Because when you go all week and tell yourself…
That's your problem right there. Comparing yourself to others. Stop that. it will only discourage you more and more. Do not compare YOUR body with Susan down the street who dropped 30 pounds overnight just by giving up soda. Some people are blessed with better genes than others. What matters the most is how YOU stick to…
You got this! You don't necessarily have to exercise to lose weight. It helps in the long run with getting fit, but just because you aren't very active doesn't mean that you can't lose weight. It's all about calories in vs calories out. You burn calories just by being alive in general! Combined with your TDEE, that's about…
Yes! I can't emphasize enough how important it is to track your calories. Even on a maintenance. You could ensure yourself every day that you won't overeat when it could easily happen. Mfp tracking helps you to stay in balance and in check with yourself. Discipline is key.
Thank you! Your answer was definitely helpful. Ignore the first month, got it. Knowing me, i'd freak the heck out if I see a slight increase in weight and immediately go back to eating lightly, or at the low calories I've been eating. What are some good things to eat when you're not hungry? Like let's say at the end of the…
I'm 135 last time I weighed myself. I was 147 a few months ago. I just can't stop losing weight. I don't overdo myself and I surely don't deprive myself. If I'm craving chocolate, I'll eat it! Or pizza or noodles or whatever really. I'm just having a bit of a hard time trying to find my balance...
I'm 5'10'' and trying to maintain, I end up freaking myself out because all these other websites about fitness and health or nutrition calculators say I should be eating at 1700-2000 to maintain, but I keep losing weight. And I'm very close to being UNDERweight and I don't want that. i'm trying to find a balance to where I…
