    I just feel like I'm not losing weight at all and I'm not seeing any changes in my body. I just thought that working out frequently and eating healthy for over a month, I would see changes by now. I just feel like I've either stayed the same or put on weight, I just don't know if I'm working out right 😩. I feel and look so ugly!!!

    Also I have the contraceptive implant and some rumours say you put on weight from it and some say it's a myth Idk.

    Also I know you can't spot reduce, but that's why I'm trying to lose weight all over, but I really want my boobs to go down, hopefully this will happen.
    I measured myself at the gym apparently I have 30% body fat, I'm 5'6 and I weigh 12stone 9lb.

    I just need advice!!!!!!

    Sure Weightloss is tough but eating healthy and eating a lot a two different things, check your calorie intake and check how much calories you'd have to eat to maintain your weight. Don't eat above that and also, lot's of foods that are supposedly healthy have *****onnes of fat in them so perhaps go for less fatty foods sometimes.
    Exercise does work, but if you're eating too much then whats the point I suppose.
    Keep exercising!! You'll be burning off calories, and that'll be good for your average calorie diet. OAKYtoijd Im not a nutritionist or whatever bYeeee

    Just eat less than you use during a day. Excercise is good for health but is not necessary or even that effective for weight loss (losing 1lb would take at least 6 hours of intense working out or more than 12 hours of fast walking). Slowly reduce your food intake until you're losing about 1lb per week.

    Argh I don't even think I'm eating a lot, but I do know that I'm not drinking enough water. I hate my legs, specifically thighs so much and my belly, this is stressful as I feel nothing is shifting!!!

    Drinks lots of water and fruits and veg. Maybe have 6 small healthy meals in a day rather than a big one 3 times. I sometimes feel the same but I’ve come to realise that be body confident however you look! People will see you for your character and kindness! Not the way you look dude!! 🌈👍🏽🌈👍🏽🌈🌈 😊😊

    It might not happen in a month, but if you carry on for a year (for arguments sake) then you will gradually see the difference.
    Are the foods you are eating healthy or are they '30% less sugar' because they will still have a lot of calories in them

    Get out cycling and willing or even walking. Not just in the gym but out and about, the fresh air is great. Also eat more veg, and switch your carb food to less startchy ones, less potato/pasta and instead try quinoa etc ❤️

    Okay so

    Breakfast = 1 slice of tiger bread (sometimes 2) 2 eggs ( depends how I feel, sometimes I poach,scramble, fry or boil), spinach, mushrooms then I'll either have turkey bacon or bacon sometimes. With water or coconut water.

    Lunch usually some pesto pasta and dried tomatoes I get from Tesco coconut water, fruit or maybe chocolate. This is usually on the go when I'm going uni.

    Dinner
    So I cook my own food either the following

    - sweet potatoe, turkey mince shepherds pie I cook from scratch, with peas, sweet corn and bell peppers

    - curry chicken from scratch with chickpeas and sweet potato

    - chicken tomato and bell peppers

    I usually have these all with broccoli or cauliflower cba with rice

    I have water to drink, as I'm a poor student Lool

    When I cheat I will have Chinese takeaway or chocolate ice cream, that's happened twice though

    it doesn't matter what you eat, it matters how much you eat of it.

    The calories you eat matter. You need to be in a 300-500 caloric deficit every day to lose weight. Eat less.

    Well no ****, so does being in a caloric deficit. OP is stresses how much "healthy food" she's been eating but clearly has not been tracking her calories.
