I've struggled with my weight all of my life and have been dropping the pounds lately. Figured I'd drop a few tips that might help. Probably been posted before but you might appreciate it anyways.
1: Diet is extremely important (Keto/mostly keto is really good)
2: You can have a cheat meal every once in a while
3: When selecting a diet, look for things you truly enjoy
4: Eliminate sugary drinks and processed food
5: Exercise can be as simple as taking a walk on your block
6: Keep a regular exercise schedule
7: Stretch your comfort zone, don't break it.
8: Find an activity you enjoy (Dancing, basketball, bird watching, etc)
9: Don't be so hard on yourself
10: Most importantly, make sure these things are realistic lifestyle changes.
Your energy levels will rise greatly if you keep to this. I can't believe how much more focused I am and how I'm able to control my social anxiety. It's not about being some super athlete, it's about feeling good and taking care of yourself.
(P.S. dress for your current weight, not for your ideal weight. It'll feel amazing to express yourself even if your weight is up there. No need to punish yourself for being fat. It's best to just focus on fixing the problem rather than beating yourself up)
