Honestly, you have to find the motivation within yourself to keep going. At least that was the case for me. When I lost the first five or ten pounds, that alone was enough to keep me motivated. It's not easy at first, but once you get the ball rolling it becomes easier. Don't give up! I know how badly you want this!
Something In the gym that used to help me when I was cutting weight for wrestling was to do cardio first, Like jogging or intense biking to jack up the metabolism.Then go hit weights for a consistent burn all day. Keep in mind we did this 2 times a day and you will burn fat as well as muscle. Mostly fat though. Here what it would looks like.
Intense Biking 20 mins Shoulder press x 15, Or Bent over rows or Lots of Squats. x 100 bench x 15, or Cable Pull downs or Lots of Lunges x50 close grip bench x 15, or upright rows or Burn out on deadlifts
Keep in Mind this is all sets of 3, before and after 2 hour wrestling practice.

Hey, my names Katelyn and for a couple of years now I have been struggling with me weight. My freshman year of college I weighed 155 lbs going to school and left at 179 lbs. 24 lbs. gained!! and boy did I feel like crying every time I stepped on the scale then. I wanted the weight to just be gone. Honestly, I wanted to quit! After the summer I dropped to 169 but I am still NOT happy in any ways. I find myself so far from any goals I have for myself. It's like every time the mirror hits me I am automatically regretting any of the foods I ate that day. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. I just want this weight battle to end. Please give me tips on how to stay motivated.
Also, I find myself going to the gym and not knowing what to do. I am the kind of person who can't see the change in myself when I work out. I find it hard to believe that someone can lose so much weight. I mean its soooo hard to imagine myself skinnier and looking good in clothes and in a bathing suit. This summer I want to be MY SUMMER. I wanna lose the weight and show it off to my friends, boyfriend, and the beach. I am SO tired of getting to the beach with my skinnier friends and feeling so chunky. Some of them don't know what its like to be me. Trying so hard to work towards something they have that I want. It comes so naturally to them. They can eat and eat and not gain a lb. but me....I gain 5! Please help me! I am in desperate need of a sparkpeople buddy to correspond with. Also I am in need of advice and ways to stay motivated.
