Were you ever not overweight or fat, but not fit either? Have you always had a belly, extra weight in your midsection? Did you have 10 lbs to lose? Did you lose it? If so, how?
Of course, I understand the "Eat less, move more" stuff and I do believe I eat relatively healthy - I'm vegetarian, love my veggies and fruits, drink plenty of water, only eat brown whole grains, don't drink soda or the 'real' junk food like pizza or fries. I work out about 2-3 times a week, where I run for about 20 minutes and then do some crunches, squats, lunges, whatnot. I don't overextend myself, and I certainly don't deprive myself. Love my beer. Love my pasta.
However, while I seem slender in clothes, I'm packing a LOT of belly fat and huge love handles, and as I get older (I'm 22 yr old female), it seems harder and harder to lose. I just look flabby everywhere and feel squishy. I have rolls.
I'm at 121 lbs at 5'2. I'm not overweight and I guess I'm at an average, health-wise. At a risk of people thinking this is all in my head, here are some photos of me (I recently lost 3 lbs after ramping up my workout and stopping drinking sugary starbucks drinks, so took before and after.)
121 lbs ... le sigh
Were you like me? Not fat, but not fit? How'd you lose the last 10 lbs, specifically? How can I include this in a simple way in my lifestyle? I'm making positive changes in my life, as I'm moving out and getting a new job...What exercises/diet changes helped you?
