Gained it Fast, Can't Seem to Lose It-- ANY HELP?

Postby 6sixty2two » Sat May 03, 2008 4:59 pm

i am a 20 year old girl, and i currently weigh 116 lbs. i'm 5'5 in height.
last year, around october, the parties lined up almost everyday, and as a result, i gained around 6-8 lbs. even before that, i guess i hadn't really kept track of what i was eating, as i was used to having a slim body and felt i could eat as much without gaining as much. however, i think the food binge was what did me in.
i used to have a totally flat stomach, and a 27inch waistline. now it's got a little bulge, and my waistline is now up to 28.5inches. my hips measure around 36.5inches.

i recently started working out on the crosstrainer, but i'm bad at endurance. i only manage 15minutes a day and try to do around 15crunches afterwards, and i'm slowly working that number up until i can manage around 90-100 a day. (since i read some advice that it's better to start at 10 and increase 1 per day to get to the bigger crunch numbers.)

so how should i set my goals? i want to get down to around 106lbs, but i don't know if this would actually really decrease my waistline. furthermore, i've tried eating less, as recommended, but not to the point that i would starve myself.

do you have any advice on what i could do about this and if i should make any more changes?
i used to never exercise but i feel its importance, specially since i have a slightly higher resting heart rate than normal, usually around the 120s. (this is also why i feel i cannot do more than 15minutes, because by then, my heart feels like it's about to explode.)

any advice/comments/suggestions would be appreciated. thank you so much.
