You can do it! Just keep your mind in the goal. Joining a website like this and starting a process to lose weight are only the first steps. I am proud of you! I started a diet 2 months ago. It was a real struggle at first, but I just keep reminding myself of why I wanted this. Now the cravings are mostly gone and exercise is becoming easier. Just remember the first weeks are the hardest, but cravings leave after a few hours if you don't satisfy them about it. If you don't do anything about your weight it stays everyday with you. I try to tell that to myself in times of temptations. Stay strong.View Thread
I can't believe I've been in a diet for almost 2 months. I feel like I should be messing up by now. I don't have cravings anymore, but when I see chocolate or fat food I still feel like I should be wanting it as if my brain hasn't adapted to the change my body has adapted to. Any feedback or advice?
Info on me: I am trying to lose 40 pounds. I am 18 and I weight 160 or weighted. I am not quite sure, as I haven't weight myself since I started my diet. My clothes feel looser and I've been told I look skinner. Yet I have this fear that I will weight myself and see the same number or a very close number like 158. That will be very discouraging. I also exercise daily and I am trying to do longer or harder exercise as I progress.
Cross fingers that this diet actually works for me.View Thread
