I am around ten pounds above my goal weight. (Though my goal has more to do with body shape/fat than numbers... but ten pounds gives you an idea of how far away I am from my goal). Not too too far, but especially being only 5 feet tall, it would make a big difference.
Here is the trouble: NOTHING is happening. NO weight lost, NO difference in appearance, other than tighter thighs - but they are no smaller, and my arms still wobble and my lower tummy still sticks out.
I have been eating really well (1200-1500 calories a day, lots of fresh fruits and veggies, small amounts of healthy carbs and fats), staying hydrated, working out with cardio and strength 3x a week, tracking my calories etc with sparkpeople, keeping an exercise diary, the whole nine yards - for two months!!!
I don't get it. Before I started dieting/being healthier, I still ate pretty well, but with a lot more allowance for chocolate and sweets, and I only worked out about once a week. And I was the same exact weight/body composition!!!
It's really hard to stay motivated and positive when I don't see any results. It's starting to make me really depressed, and I'm dreading summer/bikinis/tank tops, and wishing there was something that could help. I'm even considering diet pills or supplements... I'm desperate!
Anyone have any advice? What can I do? Where are my results?
I just feel like it's so unfair
and I worry that maybe this is the only weight I can be.. like my body won't go beyond this point no matter what I do. Is that possible?
PS - my tracker is wrong in this post for some reason? I am 120-122 pounds (it fluctuates) and I'd like to be around 110 - 108 pounds. I am 5 feet tall and 20 years old.
