hey! ive tried a couple different supplements too and i dont find them particularly helpful either. the only one i think that might have helped a little bit is conjugated linoleic acid (CLA). its an oil supplement that claims to burn fat specifically in the abdomen and honestly... when i was using it.. i felt felt that my abs were more visible than they should have been at that given weight.
currently i try to do 1200-1500 calories daily with an hour of cardio... which brings me to 700 calories burned on elliptical. since i already have a pretty muscular built i dont worry about weight training too much. i will focus on it more after i lose more weight on cardio (since its the most effective calorie burner).
my goal is to lose 10 lbs each month so that i can break 130 by march. i think i would be satisfied with my body at 130... and then continue one more month to get into the mid/low 120s... and then finally maintenance for the rest of my life! wohoo
i am worried that the weight loss i want is too fast and that i will not be able to maintain it... but ive been doing a lot of reading in magazines, blogs and forums and it seems like its definitely possible for someone of my size to do this. it also seems like i am working it out much harder than the other people did... idk if that is a good or bad things. im like terrified of the supposed weight plateau/gain due to too little food and too much gym time. anywho.. i guess we shall see!
btw thats incredible that you dropped 9 kgs just from kicking sweets out of your diet. did it take you 6 months? 2589 days ago

i normally am 0/2 but i actually have a medium frame (which i judge by myw rist size... i read that if your thumb and pointer finger can touch when they wrap around your wrist then you are small frame... and mine are about 1cm apart so i just figured that was medium frame? lol). i was also an athlete for most of my life so im pretty muscular... which is why i think i weigh so much more despite being the same clothing size.
