1. I have gotten better and better with every diet. I try to eat healthy and incorporate those eating habits into everyday living and cooking, you know, I try to count calories but sometimes get discouraged at how time consuming it is the planning I aim for no more than 1300/day. I cook w/ olive oil all the time, use sea salt, I eat vegetables, fruit, greek yogurt, feta cheese, I cook my own meals everyday nit deep frying at home, only oven or pan seared things but also go out and when the cravings attack I go for junk food, I have limited the amount of carbs to whole grain bread, mexican tortillas to a max of 2 small ones per meal, I have gotten better at controling my portions. I come from a family where all my life I was told to eat everything I was given no questions asked and the portions served to me were large and frequent, never worrying about fat or carb content until know that I'm trying hard to stick to healthier options. I'm currently taking supplement of white bean to helo digestion of carbs and drink tea as much as possible (not a fun of water) in stead of juice or pop, when I eat out I order soda and lime juice to avoid pop as well.
2. In my history with weight loss, I lose inches of my body faster than pounds, The scale moves slow but I can feel changes when I put my clothes on, and I can't remember the last ime I had a significant weight loss of more than 12 pounds. Right now I am @ 156 and wish to be @ 125 max, I think this is healthy, I'm 5'2'' and 6 moths ago went under breast implnats surgery to try to boost my self-steeem, being flat chested bothered me since I was a teenager. I'm happy with that but not with the fat deposits all over other places, the cellulite, the lack of tonification and I'm only 24! can't imagine how disgusting it would get as I get older I don't want that! \i'm scared, i don't feel atheltic and healthy like other gwomen my age.
3. I have ruled out medical issues. I am haealthy, my Dr. has checked my thyroid and stuff, I have changed my birth control method once, things got worse. I was on the pill since I was 16 then at 22 I think, I changed to some subcutaneous bars for a year which made anxiety, cravings and acne appear, went back to a different pill, anxiety got better but remains not as bad and my acne remains as well, I have been on this new pill for a year and want to change again because my acne has not improve.
