I'm about over this! No worries, I can't stop because I have to be fit for school but I need to drop this last 20lbs before August! As I posted before, I'm in a damn 4 month plateau.

I took a look at my diet and I needed to eat more and cut the sodas. I cut sodas, my face has cleared. I have been eating 4-5 times a day with far more healthier foods.

So, instead of seeing 148, at ALL like I was....I've gained and it will not budge! 150....come on mow, GO AWAY STUPID FAT! Top it off that I feel sooooo bloated and gross from drinking a shit ton of water and eating so much. My face looks fat. Ugh!

August isn't that far away and this weight has to go!!!

Have you heard of skinny fiber? It's an all natural weight loss supplement that works great. You look great by the way.

Just a heads up, water does not cause bloat, sodium does!

I think you look great!
Idk, what to tell you, I read your posts and it sound like you are doing the right stuff. Maybe you are building muscle?
Either way you look great

I always feel bloated after I polish off a bottle of water.

Are you retaining water?  Watch your salt intake.

It sounds like you are doing all the right things and working out but you may be retaining water as well.  How is your fiber intake?

I don't even look at my fiber, honestly.

I try and watch my sodium and I really hope I'm not retaining!!! How do I get rid of it if I am?

Our bodies will also naturally retain water depending on the time of the month - the curse of womanhood!  But if we are eating too much sodium, our bodies will also retain that water.

I'm sure you already drink tons of water, which seems counterproductive but it helps to flush out our systems.  Drinking grapefruit juice and cranberry juice actually help when you are retaining water.

Definitely check to see if you are getting enough fiber as well.

I agree, fiber can make a big difference, but NOT from a supplement.  It needs to come from dietary sources, like beans and legumes, fruits and vegetables, and whole grains.  Eating this way will also help increase potassium levels, which can help flush out sodium (along with water, of course).

Are you getting enough variety in your diet?  Sometimes eating too many of the same things can lead to nutrient deficiencies, which can actually slow your metabolism to preserve the limited amount of that vitamin or mineral.  Have you ever had your electrolytes and vitamin levels tested?
