Questions About Depression
I really need help with weight loss?I've recently got really down about my body. When I look at myself, all I can think is "you're disgusting". I'm not confident at all, I feel awful about myself. I can't take it anymore. I cry all the time just thinking about my body, and how uncomfortable I am in it. I'm not really fat, but I am chunky. I need to lose about 20-30 pounds. (Not to be at a healthy weight, that's about 10 pounds.) I'm surrounded by all these skinny pretty girls, and I feel so awful. I used to think if I did my makeup and hair, it would take the ugly body away. But, it's not doing it anymore. I've tried diets. I can't stay on them. I always go for junk food. I'm a college student, I can't afford really healthy stuff. I just feel so gross. I really want to be able to lose weight. But, I can't stay motivated. I don't have a gym to go to or the money. I need help. I always catch myself reading about bulimia and I know that's so wrong, but i'm so very depressed about this right now. I don't know where to go from here. And i'm only 19.
once i was fat, but all u need to do is do a few pushups every morning and night. curls are for your stomach and push ups are mostly for your arms. curl ups help a LOT. and u can play a sport. scoccer takes a lot of fat away
It's ok, lots of people feel like this. The media sends us messages that we have to be 15 pounds underweight to be pretty. The truth is, you don't. All you need to be is happy with yourself and your body. Try not to compare yourself to other girls, because everyone is different. First off, start by making sure you're eating healthy. Eat mostly fruits and vegetables, with plenty of protein, fiber and carbohydrates. A good trick to not eat so much is to not pile food on your plate over one inch high, and not to finish everything on your plate. Also, stay away from foods high in sugar, salt, preservatives, and fat. This means limiting or cutting out all chips, sodas, cake, ice cream, pizza, french fries, hot dogs, or anything fried. Instead, go for a salad, something grilled, veggies, fruit, and drink lots of water. For snacks, I recommend non-fat yogurt, fruits like grapes, oranges, and bananas, or low calorie gum. The snacks will come in handy if you start getting hungry and need a snack, to prevent possible binging later. Switch your carbohydrates to whole wheat, and switch over to lean meat, such as fish. Try to keep your food as natural as possible. Be sure not to drink too much alcohol, as that can be a depressant. It can make you depressed, which can cause you to overeat (binge). As for working out and exercising, I recommend doing a variety of all sorts of activities, like jumproping, jumping jacks, hula hooping, crunches, situps, pullups, pushups, planks, jackknives, stretching, lifting weights, yoga, pilates, squats, lungs, bicycling, swimming, running, work out CD's, and strength training. Doing as many different activities as you can that use different muscles is important- it will help you get so much more toned, and lose more weight. Just try and fit as much exercise as you can in a day. Also, what I do is I keep a food journal online. It helps me keep track of what I'm doing, what I should change, and my calories. I use www.everydayhealth.com, and its free and it works great. And last, but not least, believe you can lose the weight, because you can! Because having a positive outlook about it all can help you go farther. Good luck! :)
Here are some weight loss options: Running regularly or doing workouts for your whole body are great options, don't just concentrate on one area of your body. You can find good workouts in magazines, or you can create your own and go to a gym. Also, whenever you look at yourself in the mirror say to yourself: "I am amazing" or some other sort of inspirational saying, and think of at least one thing you DO like about yourself, it will help keep you from crying and feeling sad. Hope this helps! :)
Hey! Im at the same point! need 10 pounds gone! and it just doesnt work! But judging by your profile picture, your really nice looking and are not "fat" at all. Your body looks pretty good. Dont worry about it! But if your really stressed over it. Go to the gym for 30 minutes. 4-5 days a week. You'll feel so much better i swear!
i know this sounds bad but i did it for 3 months and i got hella skinny but what makes you lose weight fast is only eating 1/4 of your food everyday. and you can drink what ever you want, so that it flushes out the fat!
It's easier for guys to lose weight so i don't know of this will work but, I went running everyday after school around my neighborhood,then I got home and did a few crunches and push ups,also I cut out soda and started eating less, like instead of a big breakfast lunch and dinner I just had a smoothies for breakfast a salad for lunch and chicken and veggies for dinner,also drink lots of water and cut out the carbs,by the way don't get down on yourself,you look very pretty and a perfect weight, if I had the chance I'd definetly sleep with you but hey that's just me! :)
