I'm a 22 years old, around 5'7"-8" and I weigh 190 pounds. Thats just a rough guess from the last time I went to the doctor (4 months ago).
I really hate how I look. Everytime I look in the mirror, all I see is the fat that jiggles and seems like it can not ever come off. I go through phases when I exercise for a couple of weeks and then quit because I get to busy or what not. But now I just want it all to stop.
I would like to weigh around 140-150 pounds. I am not sure whats natural for me, but that sounds like a good goal.
My plan is to exercise 6 days a week. I will use the treadmill and bike.. and then lift weights (hand and machine), and do 200 crunches a night.
But when it comes to food.. I am clueless. I buy all low-fat or fat free food. I only eat 2 meals a day.. and I drink 2 cokes a day (I really do not want to cut this out). I enjoy having a good meal.
So I guess the point of my post.. is a few things:
1) Can I lose weight exercising alone.. and still just making sure I dont pig out and eat food high in fat?
2) How long will it take to lose this much weight?
3) My thighs seem so big.. is it possible to get them to shrink down? Or am I doomed? This also applies to my butt and little gut that seems to stick out.
I want to be realistic and focused.. and i want to feel good about myself. I am just having trouble seeing the light.
Perhaps someone has advice.. or their story to share?
