I'm just wondering what your fitness goals are and how you plan to achieve it?
Weight has always been a struggle for me my entire life. I was always overweight. I got up to 265 lbs when I was 17 and then decided to join Herbal Magic where I lost 100 lbs. When I started University I gained 70 of the 100 lbs that I lost. At the end of University I got back up to 235 lbs and decided to make another healthy lifestyle change in my life. Through diet and exercise with a trainer I managed to lose 40 lbs. I went back to college and gained the 40 lbs that I lost.
I haven't booked my wedding yet, but we're hoping for the end of 2015. I'd really like to lose about 50 or 60 pounds. I feel so discouraged because I have gained and lost it so many times that I feel like I'm just bound to fail. I'm also torn between using another weight loss program or doing it the old fashioned way again.
I feel your pain 100%. I found myself at 280 after a twin pregnancy. Yo-yo'd for years and hated myself. Something finally clicked !! I joined my fitness pal and really started looking at what I was consuming. I also found exercise and have grown to love it. Never would have thought id be going 3 years strong at the gym. I've lost around 125 lbs. but I fail often and I feel discouraged often. I always gain over summer. It seems like from April on it goes up and up. It's a 100% forever battle for me because I know how easy I'll gain it back. I posted some pics in the other 'anyone use weight watchers' thread.
All I can say is you've done it before and you can do it again. Habits take time, ease in slowly (don't go hardcore overnight) you've got this!!!
Ps - I'm all for the old fashioned band wagon. Count calories, eat at a deficit and exercise. And throw in some splurges. I used to have a cheat day all thru my weight loss journey. Wedding countdown boot camp allows a cheat meal lol
You need to be realistic and you need to do something you can stick to for life. I can't give up everything I love so I have it in moderation.
Like I said I fail too. And I have bad days and weeks. I feel discouraged but I get back on that horse. That desire and drive will push thru. You have it in you.
