Hi, I'm a 22 year old girl, 5'4'' and 215 pounds. Over the past year and a half I've gained about 70 pounds. I know depression played a big role in my sudden weight gain, but I got help and am now happier then ever. I've struggled with my weight all of my life, but I could usually keep in in check. So here I ask, what can I do to help lose some of this weight?
I eat ok (not great, but fruits and grains are a big staple in my diet). I also go for an hour or so walk everyday. I used to eat "junk" food all the time, and NEVER exercised, but I still managed to keep a healthy weight, so I don't understand why I am having problems now.
I am also having weight related issues, such as fatigue, and my asthma is kicking in harder then ever (I can't even walk up a single flight of stairs without being extremely out of breath). So I'm just curious if there is anything I could be doing differently, any tips, someone could give me. Am I doing something wrong? Should I be eating more? Less? Different foods maybe?View Thread
I'll try eating more veggies (yuck! Haha.) and protein.
I've done the calorie counting thing. I have found that I tend to eat about 800-900 calories a day, without starving myself. I've tried eating more and I've tried eating less. Maybe it's just what I'm eating? I'll try your suggestions and see what happens. View Thread
