Oh and I start Uni in September. Are most girls there pretty skinny?
You just need to slowly start cutting the carbs out of your diet i guess... Not completely though because eating no carbs at all is quite bad for you... Once you do that you might find yourself with more energy to start excersizing more... Being a size 10 isnt a bad thing at all, but i understand that some people arent happy being that size.
You need to realise that weightloss takes time and that you have to keep at it. Work out a sensible diet plan where your're eating about 500 calories less a day than you Basal Metabolic Rate. This will result in roughly a 1lb a week loss.
I managed to put on a full stone in my first year of uni. By the end, i was really unhappy with myself too. I just had to say enough was enough and time to get motivated. It took me about 2 months to lose the weight.
You can get back in shape again, you just need to get in to the zone.
20 hours of exercise a week (I presume cardio) and NO carbs is a recipe for disaster.
And unless you are under 5ft2 then 7 stone is underweight anyway.
Being 'toned' does not mean you have to be super skinny. Pick up some weights, increase protein intake and don't overdo the cardio!
P.S. Don't be afraid or carbs and fats. You need both of these along with protein to keep a healthy balanced diet. Just stick to low GI (complex carbs) and healthy fats such as omega 3 and 6.
The best way is to change your lifestyle, change it to something you can commit to or you will never maintain it.
Take up running, swimming or a sport do some research on good nutrition.
You exersice 20 hours a week? how is that even possible
size 10 isnt fat at all. 7 stone is very thin if you're average height or even if you're slightly short. Most girls ive met at uni are size 8-14. Toned=/= thin, so maybe instead of losing weight, how about you just tone?
Thing is, the happiness at that time of your life was probably not because of your size, but your attitude. If you try to have more confidence in yourself and yourbody as it is, your lifestyle will probably pick up.
To me, this seems like a mental problem, not physical.
too thin is unsexy. just saying.
Size 10 isnt fat. I think most girls need to aim for 8-10.
You shouldnt lose weight
Your new weight sounds just as good as your old weight. There's nothing wrong with putting on some weight, it doesn't make you look less good in clothes, it doesn't make you less attractive, and it shouldn't make you loose your self confidence! Be happy with the new you, I'm 7stone and I seriously wish I'd put on 2 stone! I actually envy you..
In my opinion, you're at the perfect weight now! Just maintain that weight, do some exercise but do not overdo it, don't go all manic and diet, just eat healthy (:
you seriously think size 10 isn't thin?..
i think its a nice size.
size 6 makes people look ill.
