My name is Avery, and I'm kind of nervous about joining this site but I hope it will get me more motivated into losing weight!
I'm 18 and I weight near 200 pounds, and obviously this is terrible because with my height I should be weighting near 140. So I need to lose 60 pounds!? Ugh, that just makes me more stressed, ahaha.
The thing is, now-a-days I don't eat bad at all. Maybe once a month I go out and eat fast food, but I never drink soda or coffee nor do I pig out on lots of sweets or fatty foods. So that's what get's me extremely frustrated. I eat lots of veggies every day and have healthy meals, but my body just doesn't want to help me out, ahaha!
Though saying that, I'll also say that I never workout. I get out of school at noon, but then I just come home and get on the internet. Although I do have a couple blogging/article writing jobs where I have to write a few blogs everyday, that only takes a couple hours more out of my day. So I definitely have time to take a walk or do some workout videos, but I just don't have the motivation to do it.
Anyways with that out of the way, I was hoping maybe this site and the community can help me get more motivated! So I'm pretty excited to see how well this will help me, but I have a tendency of rushing into things and burning myself out in the first week. So we'll see.
Also, if anyone can explain to me why I only maintain my weight even with eating healthy, that'd be nice. I know I have little to no metabolism, but I still don't really understand it. I'm not a health nut, but I'm pretty close, and I don't eat throughout the day. I just think since I'm this weight, that I should at least see some difference within weeks or months.... but I've been eating healthy for around 2 years. Blah
