I started my diet around two weeks ago, but gained back what I lost in week one when I was celebrating my exam results. So I've officially been dieting for a week, I've tried several times in the past but failed. Things are different this time as I've just got to the point where I'm tired and depressed of looking at myself and seeing this ugly fat girl.
I've cut down snacking and junk food and even fizzy drinks. I've also been calorie counting like mad, and been doing 20-30 minutes exercise. Except in the past two days its been more like 40mins-1hour.
Most of my exercise routine consists of 30mins cycling on an exercise bike in my living room, possibly 40 mins. And in this time I usually do around 3-5miles. Is this enough exercise to be doing? I've also been doing squats, sit ups (only managed 50 with small 5sec breaks), and I'll also be starting band exercise workout routines sometime this week. I need to roughly lose 75 pounds as a starting weight, then if I'm not happy I'll continue.
Is this good enough? If not can you give some exercise tips which I can carry out at home.
I've lost 7lbs this week, but I feel like I have to weigh myself all the time and even if I gain a pound I feel like I'm messing up and lose motivation. But I haven't binged at all yet.
