For Real This Time

Hey. So I'm 24, and want to lose 5 sizes or 30 - 40 pounds by my 25th birthday so I can wear a super sexy little dress. I've been overweight since I was about 15, and I try to lose weight, but I get unmotivated easily when I get on the scale and don't see results. I know muscle weighs more than fat, but it takes forever for me to notice a difference in my size, and I find it disheartening. But this time I'm doing it for real. I'm in University for Forestry, and if I ever want to be successful ...
Hey. So I'm 24, and want to lose 5 sizes or 30 - 40 pounds by my 25th birthday so I can wear a super sexy little dress. I've been overweight since I was about 15, and I try to lose weight, but I get unmotivated easily when I get on the scale and don't see results. I know muscle weighs more than fat, but it takes forever for me to notice a difference in my size, and I find it disheartening. But this time I'm doing it for real. I'm in University for Forestry, and if I ever want to be successful in forestry I have to lose weight and get in better shape so I can handle summer field work.

April 11th - I am finally starting to notice a different inc emy body!! I think it's pretty awesome. I'm trying not to be too hard on myself when I don't work out, or when I eat badly. That just makes me want to wuit. I have enough pressure on myself between my sometimes unrealistic goals and school. I'm finding exercise helps me handle the stresses in my life better, and one day I truly believe I will be proud of myself.

Very true, I always viewed the gym as a way to relax from school, but sometimes there was just too much! I would walk on the treadmill on an incline (and hold on) so I could focus on my notes, or sit on the bike. Never the elliptical, that was just too much work!

You can always find time though!! On those days where I just had too much studying to do, I would study at the gym. Not 100% productive, but it still worked!

I know that feeling! I was doing ST regularly, but then school got incredibly busy and I stopped for 6 months! But now school is over and I'm back to my ST routine. It feels great :)

At least you're being honest in calling it an excuse, because that's exactly what it is! I know spark has a lot of routines that don't include weights/machines to ST, so you can utilize those! I do an arm routine every other day and ab routine on those days. I'm waiting till I find a new gym (within the next month) before I start doing leg routines since, like you, I have no idea what to do (other than squats and lunges!).

But it is a good idea to get in a cardio routine before adding a ST routine because you don't want to do too much and then get overwhelmed!

I've been struggling for time to exercise last week and I probably will again this week. I've been doing ok with my food though so at the moment I'm maintaining rather than losing.
