Exercise is for fitness. You don't need to exercise to lose weight. You just need to consume less calories than you burn and you should lose weight. I say should because some people have medical issues that make that not work. If you were one of those people you would probably already know.
It helps if you make a plan and not just make random choices and hope it works out. Figure out your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) by going here: TDEE Calculator
Take 20% off that number and that's how many calories you should eat in a day. The macros are your eating guidelines so try to keep those in mind. Weigh your solid food and measure your liquid food. Lot everything, even if it's just one m&m.
Don't worry about sugar in fruit. If you have a reason to worry about sugar worry about the added sugar in processed items.
Be mindful of sodium because it makes you crave more and makes you retain water.
Drink enough water every day.
Your meals can't just be whatever you dig up. You're going to have to take responsibility for your eating and not look at other people to cook for you or provide you with healthy choices. They're not going to. It's not their job.
Fad diets work in the short term but you will mow toilet gain it all back plus extra in the long term. They don't teach you how to eat or how to make good habits. The restriction is not sustainable for many people long term.
Support systems are nice but this is YOUR journey. Other people aren't taking it with you or for you. You have to be your own cheerleader and advocate. You can't rely on other people to think this is as important to them as it is you. It won't be. You either want to make the changes or you don't. You can't expect someone to force you and drag you along.
Good luck! It sucks but we've all been there. A lot of us are on MFP if you decide to come around. Posted via Mobile Device
