JramirezB, I do wish you luck!!! Take it from me tho. I have no doubt that if you follow a diet plan and exercise, you will lose the 50lbs. However, and this is what took me so long, if you go back to your old ways of eating, if you go "off" the diet, the weight will come back. This needs to be a change in eating and lifestyle that you are willing to keep for the rest of your life. And if you can do this at 25 then you will live an amazing, healthy life.
I'm 50 and finally figured this out!! I intend tho, to now live another healthy 40 years plus and be a royal pain to my kids!!!!
The best of luck to you. My biggest help staying on track has been logging every bite or drink into fitday and weighing at least 2x a week. staying under 1500 calories a day. Total. All drinks included. No fried, no processed, no junk. Period. You will be amazed at how much better you feel and after a few weeks of eating "clean" your junk cravings will all but disappear. I still indulge myself but I try to limit to a drink a day or a treat. Always count it tho!!!
Is this easy? No. Is it worth it? Yes. If you don't do well one day, just do good the next.
My journal is public and if you would like to message me directly you may.
Also, my login is the same as my email. Please feel free. It's hugely helpful to be accountable to someone else. Harder to cheat and easier to stay on track.
Take care and best of luck. Beth
