I am a 21 year old college student home for the summer. I am new to the site and could use some advice/motivation. When I started my diet at the begining of the summer I weighed 238lbs after picking up much un-needed weight from college. I have lost 5 pounds and currently weigh 233. It has been about 6 weeks since I started, I have been using a high protein diet, and usually do 45 min of cardio and 45 min of weight training. I was wondering if I could get some advice for why my weight loss has been so slow moving. I am trying to stay positive and keep my weight moving down.
As to the wedding I hope it went well being that this thread was posted 4 years ago. I just wanted to chime in on this discussion and say that I have reccently quit drinking soda. It has been 8 weeks since I have had an soda (diet, or regular). I use to drink 3-4 sodas a day sometimes more. I quit cold turkey and havent looked back. I feel like if you can do it this is the best way. I feel like I have much smoother steady energy instead of ups and downs. I also have lost a few pounds and I feel like this has helped me do this. Once I quit drinking soda after the first few weeks I have lost my cravings for it completely and find that it now gives me heartburn. Hope this helpsView Thread
I have not yet spoken to a doctor about a weight loss plan, is that something that you would reccomend? Also I have been using the food/fitness log on WebMD, and I was suprised to know that it says I should be eating 3400 calories a day. I feel like I should be eating less than that to lose weight, thoughts on that? ThanksView Thread
