Girl I don't even want to go there with hair!  I promised I wouldn't let my hair get in the way of my health but I just retwisted last week and I have sweat it out multiple times, had to cowash and look just like I did before the retwist.  So over it!

I know how that is.  I had to look at myself in the mirror today in class and usually I am the biggest person at the gym at a size 10/12.  But just think about how far you've come already. And what you can do.  You can run 10 miles! Very few people can.  You've lost almost 20 pounds in one month! I know I can't do that. Just think about how much better you look than when you started.  You didn't gain the weight in one fell swoop so you're not going to lose it that way either.

didn't know i wasn't supposed to eat less that 1500, cause thats how much the body burns on its own..
so i guess ive been starving myself..

how do i figure out how much im supposed to eat then?


Are you trying to lose weight? Your body won't go into starvation mode on 1300 calories.

yeah im trying to lose.
idk someone told me i shouldnt eat less than what the body burns


then how are you to lose weight? In order to lose weight you need to net negative calories a day either through diet, exercise or a combination therein.

The rest of this day will be a lazy day.  I might hit the gym later but I might not.  
Do you run outside or treadmill? I find it hard to build my endurance Cry

Thanks E.  You're right, this was YEARS in the making..... it's gonna be work.  I was depressed, eating fast food, drinking daily..... those days are over and I have to stick with it.  Ugh....

I run outside.  I can't stay on the treadmill I get bored.  We have some great interurban trails in our city.  I'm good for about 2 miles on the treadmill lol  The other thing about running outside is you can't quit - you gotta get home!

if you do other forms of intense cardio that should build up your endurance. Try doing intervals.

i dont know your progress, but if you're running 10 miles you're doing great to me!

it's really motivating and encouraging watching you do well... i stopped focusing on my weight and just how strong i was

it'll all fall into place for you

Thanks femme.  I just need more patience and to stay with it.  Reading the posts in here and workouts definitely helps knowing I'm not alone.  Sorry for being such a bummer today!  PMS is real lol
