I wanna be skinny again..
Hello, first post ^__^! I'm 19, 5'5, and somewhere around 140lbs.. I'm naturally skinny, throughout high school I was around 120, 105 at my lowest.. My bad eating habits have caught up to me & post-highschool I've gone from a 1 in jeans to about an 8 :( now summers coming up, I'm engaged, I just want to look good for my fiancÚ again.. I hate my stomach and my muffin tops:( I've been dealing with eating issues from a young age, and now I'm at the point that I just want to start eating healthy instead of all my junk food. My biggest problem is motivating myself to work out or not to eat crap food, so I guess my question to you is how do you motivate yourself?
I have a picture on my fridge or on the background of my phone, somewhere will I will often see it. And the picture is of the body that I want to have. So seeing the picture all the time just reminds me to stay healthy and my result will to have a rockin bod lol. Putting a picture on the fridge is helpful because when you are hungry and go to reah for a snack, the picture of what you want to look like is right there and will modiste you to not eat that high fat snack.
I meant to say motivate you to eat a healthy snack. Dumb spell check lol
Well, to keep myself motivated (I have a tumblr) I follow thinspo and healthy food blogs. That way I always see beautiful bodies that I want and I can see yummy food that's healthy. Plus I'm my own inspiration I don't want to be overweight anymore.
You are at a healthy, thin weight now... If you want to eat less 'junk' food, start incorporating healthier food like fruits, veggies, whole grain and protein into your diet- they will naturally fill you up faster.
I'm 5'3, currently 133lbs, but at my highest, I was 142. In high school, I was also between 105-120!
I felt disgusting at 142, and it was really hard to get motivated when all I could think about was how gross I looked now, and how I used to look better, (and how much I love chocolate and ice cream...)
I motivated myself by keeping a journal of what I ate, what activity I did (AND how I felt that day). I also did a weekly weigh-in.
the first week was hell, but after I weighed in and noticed a difference (even if only 1lb) it sparked a new sense of hope. Once you complete that first week and see the results, you might be more motivated than you think.
And remember, 140 is not a lot! It's a healthy weight. Your goal weight is not so far away! (think of all those people who are 200-300+ lbs who motivate themselves..WOW, I have no idea how they do it, but seeing/hearing their success stories makes me feel like "if they can do it, I can do it")

I love tumblr. Having it on my phone is awesome, I put pictures up as my background too.. Picking healthy choices is really hard when I work at ihop.. Like everything there is just fat after 4 years working there
