Add more fish to your routine, reduce soy produce (they increase water retention) and make sure you do not feed yourself more than 1200 calories a day.

You need to set your mind to having a good body, before anything else. You can take out some old pictures of a “healthy-you” or get someone’s picture, whose body you admire a lot. Put them in a place you can see frequently and imagine yourself in that picture. A focused mindset will help you overcome many obstacles in the battle of losing weight. So be sure to keep your eyes on the gold.
