I know weight-loss isn’t a race and it’s suppose to be at your own pace…. but I want to go faster. I really want to meet my goal of under 200 lbs by September. I am no longer participating in No Weigh May, so I weighed myself today to see where I am at and I am 245 lbs. I do the 30 day shred 5X a week and I don’t count calories. I plan on starting to count calories and upping my exercise. I just have no idea to what. Any suggestions? On diet and exercise? If so, answer this post or message me. Have a nice day.
So, I have two friends and I have no idea how to handle them wen it comes to the weight loss portion of my life….
One friend is so intense about it, I have to back up. :) She is good for me ,but I am the type of person who can’t handle all that haha.
I have another friend who not exactly couldn’t care less ,but she wouldn’t turn me down if I asked to go to an all you can eat buffet.
The one thing both of these people have in common is that they always have the same argument: ” _______ is not gonna make you fall off your diet.” or ” one _______ won’t hurt you.”
Sometimes, I feel like it is sabotage. I don’t know why I feel like that. Sometimes, I get somewhat spiteful and think that they don’t want me to lose weight even though I know all they want is for me to get healthy. :/ I know I should be accountable and I am trying to be by accessing why I let them talk me into it and how I can pull myself through this slump. :/ . What do you guys do in those situation?
Sometimes, I feel like losing weight is just worthless for me :(. I have PCOS and I have an apple shape. I absolutely HATE being an apple shape :’(. I cry about it all the time because I know the unhealthiest least attractive body shape to be is an apple. I don’t have curves, I don’t have killer legs, I feel literally like a red delicious or some sort of crap. It makes me tear up that I will never have that hourglass or pear shape.
This is all due to PCOS. The disease that makes you look pregnant but won’t let you get pregnant. I tell myself that I don’t want kids because I know that my PCOS is so aggressive every doctor I have been to (endrocrinologist, Physicians, and Gyno) have told me regardless of weight loss, meds, in vitro, and etc that I can’t get pregnant. I know the hirtsism is awful. I went to the doctor and asked for birth control so I can have a normal period and she asked if I wanted it for my moustache. I almost broke down crying :/ for the rest of the day I didn’t talk because I didn’t want attention brought to my upper lip. I have hair on my chin and the guy I like pointed it out to me. He said I should be a circus attraction. He said I was the bearded lady :(. I will always remember that comment. I ask my mother all the time if I can have vaniqua or any other hair removal cream but all she tells me is that it messes with my hormones and I might want to have children one day. ( I guess she still hopes I can give her grandchildren).
I once lost 50 lbs and I only went down one pant size because of my shape. I remember being excited after my best fried lost 10 lbs and went down two sizes. I just thought after 50 lbs I could have gone down at least 3… but no. I remember crying in the dressing room because I could only get the pants up to my thigh after all that hard work. After 50lbs, I had to tell people that I lost weight. They just couldn’t see it. I didn’t feel any better either because I still carried all my weight in my chest and mid-drift.
Sometimes, I want to blame it on race as sad as that sounds :(. But even then, I didn’t get the typical black girl shape. The thick thighs and big butt. Instead I got cellulite thigs and the flattest butt ever. :( I try to look for other women who look like me and usually all I get are pictures of skinny celebrities :(.
It hurts that I almost have nothing to look forward to if I lose weight. My shape will ALWAYS be awful, the only thing I can guarantee is that I will feel healthier and sometimes … I feel like it isn’t worth it.
Recently, I have seen a lot of photos with girls like this with captions saying ” She worked for it”! But in reality not everyone works for it. WE all seems to have that one friend who eats 3 times more than us and moves 3 times less than us. Like they are forever in perfect shape. All I have to say is sometimes ( rarely though ) they NEVER work for it. Which is why it’ll be that much sweeter for the people who do work for it :). You’ll be able to appreciate the hard work and you’ll know what it takes to stay in that shape. WORK HARD AND DON’T GIVE UP!
When people say that they don’t expect a better life, a better job, or a better boyfriend/girlfriend after they lose weight is kind of upsetting. I think you will get a guy/girl to like you, I think you will be better at your job, I think you will be happier and more content with your life. Why? Hopefully after you lose weight/tone/eat healthier you are happier with yourself. :)

People would send submissions and I would put them out there. :)Also, it can be used as a weight loss motivation, so you know to pout all that stuff behind you. What do you guys think about that?
