Is BMI really BS?
So, everyone around me has been telling me not to look at numbers but instead how I feel. I don't like that I am on the heavier side of "healthy" and I'm close to being "overweight":brokenheart: . I've lost ten pounds and I want to lose another ten because it will put me at a much healthier looking BMI. Is this a good…
Constantly feel fat and unattractive?
I am told I look fit and healthy and have an attractive figure. Which is nice, but I always feel a bit fat. As if because I was once overweight I will never really overcome that. I want to be thin. I am bored of being slim/curvy and want to get to a point where I know I am not fat. When I eat a little more than usual I…
Serious decline in motivation
So I've lost a stone and a half. My friends have noticed and complimented me. They say I'm thin now and don't need to keep worrying. I feel happy that I have done well but the last few is coming off so slowly! Because of this I have felt demotivated. I find it hard to get to the gym and make sure I eat right. This week I…
Unflattering gym kit issues?
OK ladies, does anyone else suffer from this... My gym bottoms are really unflattering around the crotch area?! They seem to ride up towards my waist and get too tight around my hips. My body shape doesn't help. I'm hourglass so my hip, butt and thigh area is considerably larger than my waistline. Which means my gym…
Anyone else hate clothes?
Sounds dumb as hell but I hate clothes. They don't flatter my body shape. Even if I make an effort to wear something tailored to my shape I still think I don't look great. I just think skinny people suit clothes better. If I wear a baggy top I look pregnant because my bust pushes the material out. If I wear something…
Toning - after or during weight loss?
So I've always done exercise but not that much "toning". I've lost about 12 pounds and am looking to lose another 10. Should I start the toning process? Someone once said toning is pointless when you haven't lost all the weight you want to. Others say you should tone as you lose. Which is it?
Is this only possible with surgery?
Everyone says spot reduction is impossible. But my problem areas drive me crazy. Inner thighs, lower stomach pooch and upper arms. Even at my smallest weight the problem areas were there. Probably in a lesser format but I noticed them just as much. Realistically, is it possible to get rid of them and maintain it? Just be…
I'm stuck, big time weight plateau?
:angry: I haven't been able to get past this number for ages. I want to lose another 10 pounds. Whenever I try to lose weight I get stuck here. I am vegetarian, I eat under 1200 calories. I have cut down on carbs and eat clean. I do around 30mins of cardio/toning 4 times a week and still nothing? (I've been stuck here for…
Hi, I forgot to introduce myself!
Hey. Totally missed this thread blabbering about my weight plateau. I should have introduced myself. I'm 5'3 and 139lbs. Would love to be lighter. I don't feel bad when I look in the mirror but I do when I look at the scales. Anyone else get this? I would love to slim down my thighs, legs, arms and hips. Plus have a…
