Hey everyone, this is my first post and it's a pleasure. Anyway, I will cut to the chase.
I am 5'10, 21 years old, and a male. About 7 months ago I weighed 210 pounds and could not stand it anymore so I decided to start watching what I was eating and to start excersising. It lasted for about 3 - 4 months and then I said to myself it wasn't enough. So I started to research fasting, so there I went fasting for 7 days. Wow, I lost 10 pounds... So then eating even less to nothing was far more attractive then eating healthy. Now here I am, I weigh 149 pounds but still want to lose weight because my chest and tummy arent as flat as I want them to be. I've been eating celery w/ketchup for taste and some other fruits about twice a day. My caloric intake for the past 2 months, although better then fasting is still only about 150 - 300 caloies a day, if that. I've been stuck at 149 for some time now and I am starting to get angry with myself, for no reason at all. I've been doing gym excersises for my arms, chest and stomache in hopes that when the fat around my arms, chest and tummy disappeared id be able to focus more on toning. And its worked for the most part, theres still a little fat on the lower ab area that I cant stand and a little in my chest area. I know eating healthy and working out is what everyone will tell me. But this route has taken me this far and now on my last 5 - 10 pounds it's not working anymore. Why?
Im sorry about the lengthy post but im just trying to figure this out. I am in the music industry and sadly, image is a big deal, but these last pounds are killing me.
