Default You're my twin!

Hi Soccerchick!
I am 5'9" and about 145 lbs. Maybe we coulddiet together! I am the same as you, just want to look good in a swimsuit. My advice to you is to check out howstuffworks.com andlook up calories. Your body needs a calorie deficit to lose weight. I also just tried Atkins for a week and already notice a difference. Maybe we could do some kind of plan together! I'm excited to see someone who is about my height and weight and still wants to lose...All my friends say, "You're so thin..." You know what I'm talking about...but they haven't seen me and my flabby self in a swimsuit!!! Let me know what you think

Perhaps if looking good in a swimsuit is your aim then you could try more toning exercises and weight training. Increase your fitness rather than focusing on losing weight. If you increase your exercise and change your eating habits to balanced and healthy with good portion control you should lose weight anyway.

Basically you can lose all the weight you want, but if you havent toned the muscle underneath you are still going to look flabby.

I'm 21 and 5'6 and I currently weigh about 120 pounds which is actually 5 under my goal weight. The extra weight has come off due largely to increased muscle mass and an increased metabolism as a consequence.

I agree with Lyria ... you may even end up GAINING weight as you build muscle, but losing fat and getting smaller and more toned
