I am 19 years old and most people would tell me that I dont need to lose any weight. The only problem is that I do. I gained weight since I started college, and I really can not live with this weight anymore. I'm trying to get back down to 180 pounds. Losing 25 pounds doesnt seem like a lot, but to me it is. I just do not understand what I am doing wrong though. I eat less than 2000 calories a day, I keep a food journal, and I've been trying to exercise a little more. I don't understand what is making me keep this weight.View Thread
Thank you so much!! I really enjoy the website too! I would absolutely LOVE to take Zumba classes. I've actually been trying to find a class near me. Right now, it is raining. lol. Otherwise I would be out running or playing basketball.. And when it rains, I tend to stay inside all day and have no motivation whatsoever. That is what really has been keeping me off task. I just sit in the house and eat. It's terrible I know. But I can't think of anything else to get me up and motivated when its so dreary outside. But on the other side of the rainbow, I really enjoy hiking, and I've been getting my boyfriend and I together and going hiking on the weekends. It's become sort of a weekend thing we do. It doesn't require any money to spend, and we're still spending time together while getting a workout. I find this to be wonderful. I really appreciate the encouragement! I am going to keep trying my hardest!View Thread
