    Sick of dieting.

    Can anyone help me? Share your stories if possible. I have been fighting against myself for as long as i remember, and i'm only 20. About 5 years ago, in 2013, i was weighing 227 lb at 5'9, i panicked, so i lost 40 lb in 3 months, doing 2 hours of cardio a day and eating pretty much nothing. As i had no real discipline, no knowledge, naturally i regained it all back, and it got worse. Now jump forward to april 2016 (the worst time of my life), i'm weighing 280 pounds. Yeah. At 5'10. Something had to be done, but it had to be done right, so i read tons of awesome info here, and decided to take it slow and completely change my way of life. Now i'm sitting at 194 lb, and still going.. But Good God, i'm tired. I've binged recently.. I got back on track already, but i'm so ****ing tired of dieting.. What do you do when you are feeling like this?

    I go back to the picture I started at for motivation ( before fatloss) , and see how far I have come, to not let that hard work and dedication be for nothing. I also search Arnold's motivation videos.
    Without Proper calorie deficit, there will be no fat loss, plain and simple.

    Maybe read Lyle McDonald’s Guide to Flexible dieting to learn a sustainable and non agonizing way to diet down. I have found planned weeks at maintenance regularly are very useful.
    And then there is a book on Amazon called The Binge Code that may help get control over any physical, mental and emotional triggers of your binge eating.

    Good post consider this advice. Repped
    Why do I do this weightlifting thing for the last 29 years with all its ups and downs life has handed me? Because each time I came back stronger. NEVER GIVE UP. Gym life is about more than muscles getting bigger and weights going up. Its wisdom discipline dedication humility you name it.

    You've lost 86 lbs--good work! Have you been attempting to lose weight the entire time, from April 2016 until now? Even if you have been maintaining, has that been your focus in your mind? If so, it might be worth it to take a few weeks or a month or two to give yourself permission to maintain. Even if this doesn't mean that you eat more (I'm not sure if you've been "stalled" or maintaining while struggling to lose more or not) just giving yourself permission to take a bit of a break can be really refreshing. Once that time period is up, you may find it easier to buckle down and lose more. Also, keep in mind that for people who have big losses, it's common to find that you cannot diet for as many weeks (months) in a row without taking a bit of a break even if that break just helps you mentally.

    I think you need to get it out of your head that you're on a "diet"... To me a diet implies something that is temporary, and for you my friend (and for most of us on this forum) this needs to be a full time lifestyle change that lasts forever.

    What are your short and long term goals? Where do you want to be in 5 years? Where do you want to be in 1 year? 6 months? The end of this month? Goals should be realistic and achievable, so set some if you don't have any. My goal is a bit ridiculous but I'll tell you anyways... I set a 5 year goal to walk on stage and compete in a mens physique competition at age 47. I'm nowhere near that, but I achieved my 6 month goal of dropping 60 lbs and getting down to 15% BF, now I'm 6 months into my next goal of a 25lb lean bulk, and still right on target. I figure I have 4 more bulk/cut cycles to get up to 230lbs at less than 12% BF (which will probably take 4 more years). I will likely have to get a coach eventually to get there...

    You need to also figure out how to work some of the "bad" foods into your weekly intake without blowing it up... For instance, I typically eat on a 90/10 ratio. Meaning if I have 21 meals scheduled per week (3x7), for 19 of those meals I eat healthy and stay on track, and 2 of those meals is pretty much whatever I want, within reason, meaning I may have a cheeseburger and fries, or 2-3 slices of pizza, but NOT eat the entire large pizza.

    You can do this man, you have all the support of us here on the forum.

    You took the words right out of my fingers(?)

    I have no plans on competing, but couldn't agree more with the "diet" part and setting goals.
