These are the main things I did: 1. Calculate calories you need everyday and eat 300 less than that. 2. Exercise 200 calories off. 3. Don't do the same exercise for more than ten minutes 4. Underestimate the good things and overestimate the bad things 5. Eat only healthy foods. 6. Get a Spark Buddy over her who can send you informational sites Good Luck!
I've been very conscious of my weight/body type ever since I was 9, even more so now that I'm getting older. I'm a 'meso-endo', so it's already hard for me to lose weight. I've been struggling with my weight even though I've been exercising a lot ( about 5 ties a week) and have been eating pretty cleanly. My doctor told me I was overweight last summer, and I've been working really hard to lose that stigma, but I haven't really gotten anywhere. I'm 5'8.5 and I weigh 168 lbs. And my hip and waist measurements refuse to decrease! I'm becoming extremely frustrated since I've been at this for so long and haven't gotten anywhere. My progress is so stagnant, I don't even think I can call this a plateau... Does anyone have any tips on how to get my body to lose this freaking fat?!?
