This is it!!!!!
26 yo female 5"11. Tired of dieting and chronic cardio. Dealing with harmonal imbalance that resulted in 15 lb gain in 3 weeks about 9 months ago. STILL haven't lost it but have developed some unhealthy binge like tendencies. Already established I have a gluten intolerance as my face swells when I partake.
Starting weight - 176 lb
Goal - 155 lb
Going to be aggressive and count carbs!!!!!
Yet another tall girl here! 5' 10" and not where I was or where I want to be. Damn hormonal issues anyway.
Welcome Jayner. I think that we all know where you have been, and its great that you have found this new lifestyle. I am the shorty of the bunch at 5'7", (well I was 5'8" but I think that I have shrunk!), however two daughters are about 5'10/11 ish, a niece coming in at 6' etcc....
anyway welcome, and good luck on your journey.
Counting the macros has been the best control to my intake and results. I found it also to be precise when changes in diet reflected changes in physical reactions.
Wish you strength on your journey, especially the hormonal jungle, I sometimes wish I could just yank them out like a wall socket plug.
