I started about 30 days ago at 294 pounds. I weighed Friday and was at 270.5!! A friend recommended this board for support and encouragement.
I am eating better-- NO BREAD AND NO POTATOES AND NO FAST FOOD!! Plus I work out about 2 to 3 hours a day! at least 2 taking maybe 1 day off a week.
The nutritionist said eat between 1200 and 1500 calories! With so much salad only meals I am having trouble hitting enough calories!
My goal is to lose 80 lbs by next May even though I actually need to lose about 130 lbs total to get to the appropriate weight. I am fighting with my girlfriend and have been for several months she's constantly mad at me. I just keep trying after over 6 years I'm not throwing it all away!! She is not giving me any support and I go by myself to the gym as I have no one to go with me. She thinks I'm to sensitive about my size etc etc!! Fighting depression and our troubled relationship is making it hard to keep to it Going. I need support and encouragment. I hope by being happier with me it can help everything else. I can't stand looking at myself in the mirror and end up crying everyday over fighting with her or something. Our relationship is a secret due to kids, friends and other reasons we can't be out. I accept this and love her anyway. I'm just struggling to get her not mad at me for a fight we had months ago!!
I take mostly group classes at the gym. I want to go I'm the morning but I am missing that motivation to go. I think it would help to go before work. It's frustrating busting my butt and the scale doesn't want to move!! I enjoy the yoga, weight, Zumba, spin and water aerobics classes. I need help!! I need to find a reason this is worth it.
Any advice to keep going I'm all ears. Will weigh tomorrow. I probably watch the scale too closely.
