im a 15 year old 5'7 and 155 lbs girl. im trying to get to 140 within the next 2 months but so far have had no luck. the cc calorie counter given to me was 1300 but as im a teen who works out for an hour on an elliptical at 5.5 mph 6 days a week i know that i need more than that or else my metabolism will be too slow. Problem is is that im not sure how much more i need and how much more would still allow me to get to my goal. about a month ago i started on cc with a limit of 1500 and after 2 weeks i saw no results so i upped it to 2,100 calories a day(on people i know suggestion). but i still noticed no results 2 weeks later and actually had gained around 2-3 pounds. So now im just not sure what i should be eating. i wanted to lose 15 pounds in 2 months but since i wasted a month with no results a now have 2 months. Any suggestions? i really want to get at least some weight off before school starts.
ps. im also taking amitriptallyne for ibs which has a side affect of weight gain(which im sure does not help this goal). any ideas of how to combat it?
