I have had weight problems since my mid to late teens, I am now 23. at 19 years old I weighed about 310 lbs maybe a bit more. at 20 I started losing weight, it was not easy at all. by 23 I stopped losing at about 198 lbs, I continued doing what I did to lose weight but it wouldn't budge. My brother is a health and exercise/weight lifting buff and he suggested working out at the gym 20 minutes - 1 hour a day and setting my cal intake at 1,000 cals a day. I was intaking about 800 before that because my body wouldn't budge any with higher cal intake than that. I didn't lose any weight with what my brother suggested. So I went back to what I was doing before and nothing with hat either. I am a vegetarian, so I don't eat saturated fats, or trans fats, like there is in lots of meats. I eat veggies, fruit, brown rice, nuts, beans, tofu, etc. (I generally don't eat eggs or dairy, but I do now and again). Could someone help me? I'm around 5'8'-5'9' and at around 198. I have my Rheumatologist on me to continue losing weight until down to 150, but I don't think he realizes how hard this is, and that I can't seem to get my weight loss to continue. My weight also effects my self esteem. Can someone help me? or advise me, please. I'd very much appreciate it.
