So I have struggled with body issues for as long as I can remember and even when I did 2 sports, I was overweight. I’m turning 18 and will be 215 lbs and I do NOT like that. There are days that I do love myself, but I just really want to lose weight and In a healthy way. The lightest I’ve ever been was 170 and it was because I starved myself. I’ve tried various diets and meal plans but they get expensive and way too time consuming to keep up with. And it’s hard to keep a routine with my ADHD and how severely unmotivated I am 😭 I saw that planet fitness was free for teens recently and I REALLY want to work out but I’m the type of person to lose motivation SUPER quickly. Any tips to stay on top of it? Or exercises to help lose weight?

      I have been very insecure of my body lately. I look in the mirror & I just think I look big. My double chin, stomach, & arms are my biggest insecurities. I've tried to lose weight but I always fail. I have thyroid issues & im on birth control which doesnt help. When I was extremely depressed I lost 10 pounds in a week cause I starved myself cause of how nauseous I was. Sometimes I want that back which I know I shouldn't. I just want to feel good & confident in my body.

      tracking your progress can be motivating- how far you're running, how much you're lifting, etc., there are also a lot of habit tracker apps out there that gamify it a bit- I use Finch and it's really cute! I would really encourage you to focus on what you can do rather than how much you weigh, though. it's hard, but it's helped me feel a lot better long term, because I know fatphobic beauty standards aren't values I want to hold
