WantsToBeSkinny posted:
Hello! I'm a 19 year old female trying to lose 27 pounds. Currently, I am 5'4" and 137lbs. Pear shaped.

So for about a week and a half, this has been a typical day...

-Work out in the morning before breakfast for 45 minutes; cardio only (burning ~400 calories)
-Breakfast: Smoothie (Blueberries, 1/2 banana, skim milk, greek yogurt) and one piece of toast = 300-400 calories
-Lunch: Protein bar and a banana = 300 calories
-Snack: handful of peanuts = 100 calories
-Dinner: Brown rice, vegetables, egg (I'm asian and can't live w/o rice) = 400-500 calories
-Work out for 90 minutes (70 minutes cardio, 15-20 minutes resistance training) = burning ~500-700 calories
-Post work out snack: 1 glass of skim milk = 100 calories

What am I doing wrong?! I've actually GAINED 3 pounds and gained 2 inches on my waist and belly! And it's not even muscle, I feel flabbier than ever!!! DX

Please, I'm desperate to lose weight!!!! So ready to just give up! Any advice?!?!
