Hello! I was wondering if you could give me some tips on running if you know some about it. Im pretty out of shape, and running it suppose to be a good way to loose weight, but since im so out of shape, I cant run for extended periods of time, any advice for building stamina??
To lose weight yes running is an option, but as long as you do some sort of cardio workout and burn a dependent amount of calories you will lose weight. Try not to force yourself to run if you don’t like it, because you want to choose something you’ll enjoy so you won’t end up quitting. But to build stamina you could walk on an incline or like do some jump rope or use any of the other machines at a lower intensity honestly it’s all up to you
I figured that it might be helpful to some of you to have some tips how to lose weight. AT least those are the things I do :)
Drink, drink drink. drink a lot of water and tea (greantea)
make some rules for youself e.g. only eat between 6am-6pm
write down everything you eat and its calories. If you see the numbers going up, you´ll lose your appetite
keep yourself busy or you will eat out of boredom
sleep at least 6h a day (you´ll be more relaxed, the day won´t be as long as e.g without sleep, because of some stuff being released in your body you´ll be tempted to eat more if you´re tired)
eat from small, dark plates/ plates that contrast the color of your food ( a smaller plate makes your food look like more, the darker plate makes you eat less, the contrasting color makes you differ between food and plate more easily)
Don´t eat something if you don´t know its calories
Don´t eat at least 3h before you go to bed
if possible, eat in front of a mirror naked (you´ll get disgusted by yourself and won´t be hungry anymore)
only eat if you really have to (don´t be too extreme though and make sure to still eat enough so you don´t faint and get into a hospital before you have reached your goals)
make a list of bad foods and cross some out every once in a while and don´t eat them anymore
eat high calorie stuff in the morning, low calories in the evening
eat tastful stuff (sometimes you don´t want the food but the taste)
I eat sweets every day. some dark chocolate. That way I can controll myself better and don´t binge
don´t take extra cash with you or you might spend it on food
brush your teeth more often. food won´t taste as good and you can controll yourself better not to eat
apple cider vinegar. (2-3 tablespoons before a meal and you´ll feel not so hungry anymore)
watch your posture
habits like touching your hair etc burn some calories too
in general: move as much as possible
Move your fat ass and do some sports. Not is it only healthier but you´ll lose weight faster and if you started once you´ll get a craving for more
do sports if you´re boring e.g. crunches in your room or squats
if you´re about to binge or just want to taste the enemy, chew it and spit it out. Mia does not work for me and the last time I puked was when I was 8 (well and the onle time I got drunk when I was 15). Plus spitting it out directly saves your teeth from the acid, you save yourself from that disgusting feeling and you don´t have to worry about your body still absorbing the calories or not getting it out of your tummy in time. Just make sure to wash your mouth before you swallow.
watch/read something you consider disgusting before you eat. Heck, even watch a pimple popping video if it stops you from eating too much.
ruin your food. if it is burned or too salty you won´t eat much of it
punish yourself for thinking about food.
don´t reward yourself with food, you´re not a dog
put one euro/ pound/ dollar/ whatever money you have in your country in a box for every meal you skip. Just don´t skip breakfast (you may only do that if you are fasting) do it like this: breakfast, school food, lunch, dinner. I usually skip school food and dinner. and If you have enough money, buy yourself whatever you want (as long as it is no food)
drink warm water
lemon in your water is supposed to help with weightloss (I don´t do it though)
get up on the scale at least once every day and write down the number. I weigh myself about 4 times a day: after getting up, after running, when I come back from school and before I go to bed
look at some thinspo/ meanspo
drink coffe, 0 calorie soda
I guess that´s about it. If I remember something else, I´ll add at to this list. Feel free to tell me what you do:)
Also: If I was you, I wouldn´t try mia because it is bad. you´ll get a lot of problems and the acid will come out even without you wanting to puke, also your teeth will fall out and shit like that. i have a friend who once was mia but because of reasons like that she had to stop. she still is ana though.
oh and please don´t use diet pills. I never have used some but I never take pills anyway (unless I am on the edge of dying xD)
after all, I can´t tell you what to do but this is my advice for you. That does not mean that the things I do are much better though but you probably know that yourself.
(update: i have lost 40 pounds from august to jan. Between the two pics have around 15 lbs) Same mirror different reflection :) i know i am still far from the goal but this shorts gonna fit soon :)

It’s been a long process,but in two years I have now lost a total of 7.5 stone.since April 2016 in have lost over 4.7 stone.
I showed these pictures to a diabetic nurse and she confirmed what I already knew,if i had carried on the way I was going then I would of been diabetic by Christmas and I would of had leg ulcers all before the age of 29.That confirmation has shocked me and I am so happy that I changed my life that day and it has made me more determined.I just wish I had done it sooner.
#TransformationTuesday because I went and tried on scrubs today to see what my new size will be, even though I still have quite a bit of post-op swelling and constantly wear the abdominal binder. Medium down from what used to be a snug XXL.🦄
