797971 tn?1238008431 I have a ifit treadmill at home. A few weights for your hands, and that's about it. Dh & I came up with a schedule for exercise last night. I wanted to run them by you so you could see what you all thought. Push ups will be a lower amount because I can't really hold my weight up good yet. I just have to pace myself. Eventually the push ups will be every other week because I don't want too much muscle on my arms. My Dh bought me some perfect pushups to help me with them at first.
Avatar f tn ve been working together for about a month now. He weight trains me once a week and then I may do it on my own once a week. I also do cardio (treadmill mostly) 4 times a week. I dont drink sodas or coffee any more. I don't eat fast food any more (which I used to do 5 to 6 days a wk). I drink lots of water 8-12 glasses a day. I've only lost 2 lbs in a month and a half. What am I doing wrong? What should I change?
Avatar f tn Safe weight loss is considered to be 1-2 pounds/week. If you're losing a pound/day, most likely it will only be fluid or it will be a regimen that's actually harmful to the body and can't maintained over the long term. A grown woman should never consume less than 1200 calories/day - anything less is basically, a starvation diet. Trying to burn 3500 calories in a day is excessive.
Avatar f tn The problem I have is, over Christmas I put on around 10 pounds, and am now absolutely unable to shift it at all. I have never had any problem losing the weight once I put my mind to it but it doesn’t matter what I do I just can’t seem to shift it at all.
Avatar f tn So, stabilize your diet for a month and see if you are losing weight or not. If you are not losing weight, then consult a doctor to rule out anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism and polycystic ovaries. If you have any of these problems, which can start at any age, then you will find it difficult to shed weight. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn I need help losing weight, I weigh 195 and want to weigh 175 by the end of August 29. Today is July 10, and I'm aiming for a 20 pound goal. Last month I went one a half week of working out (constant running for 1 1/2 hour daily) and I lost five pounds. I weighed 200 pounds. But now I need to stick to it, I'm dieting, and drinking plenty of water, and going to start working out today again.
Avatar m tn The way i understand your situation is that eventually you reach a plateau effect when it comes to cardio training and losing weight. and even though you've lost 15 lbs which is great you probably lost 4-6 muscle pounds and 9-11 fat lbs. and when you lose muscle your metabolic rate slows which explains the plateau effect. to my knowledge there are two ways to counter this effect. 1. is to eat higher nutritional foods and overall eat less calories or 2. start to do light strength training.
Brachiosaurus I need your tips and techniques for coping with a plateau. I was steadily losing 2.8 lbs/week for the last month but now my losing has come to a standstill. I am frustrated and disheartened but don't want to give up. What things have you tried to get the scale unstuck? Many thanks!
Avatar n tn Although I am still extremely depressed, I can now get out of bed and I can even jump on the treadmill. I started a weight watchers diet on my own, and I am hoping that losing weight will help me feel better. The problem is the weight is not coming off. Is this a residual effect of the medication?
Avatar f tn First if your body is not getting enough foods it can easily go into starvation mode and decide to hold or even gain weight. 1200 calories seems very low, especially given how much you exercise. So maybe you should keep your food around 1300 at minimum? It's hard to know the "sweet" spot that will keep your body healthy while loosing weight, but if you don't find it you will have a really hard time loosing weight.
Avatar f tn i have been on hcg now for 9 days and i have been losing weight steadly up until my 6 th day my weight has stayed exactly the same, i have stuck to the diet like prescribed. i just didnt think i would be reaching a plateau this early on the plan. i plan on going an apple day tommorow if i dont lose any weight. i just wanted to know if this is normal. Am also exercising on the treadmill for 30 mins each day.
Avatar n tn When focusing on weight loss instead of measuring on a scale try measuring yourself with a tape measure and see the inches come off. It is common the inches go first before the weight drops off. Next I would look at your diet, how many meals a day? Portion size? % of fat, carbs, protein consuming in a day approx? Do you et late at night? Are you eating to many calories for your body? How much sodium are you taking in as that can cause you to retain water?
Avatar n tn Exercise is a way of life that brings your body to good health while losing weight or mantaining weight. 1-2 lbs is a reasonable weight loss goal per week not much more. Remember 1 lbs of fat is 3500 calories so you will have to burn that much calories in order to lose just 1 lb of fat. Be patient is it happens slowly.
Avatar m tn I am 25 years old I am 6ft1in., but 1 weigh 285lbs. I have recently started doing a brisk walk on the treadmill every other day on the treadmill for 45min and doing some free weights. my main concern is dropping some pounds. I have a question about swimming. Is swimming good for weight lose? doing laps?
Avatar n tn I have been over weight most of my life. Over the last 7 years I have been on a roller coaster, losing up to 15 lbs and then gaining that back within a year time frame. Plus, I have not been able to lose more then 15 lbs. For the last 6 weeks, I have been working with a personal trainer 2x a week, I walk 1.75 miles twice a week during my lunch and every day I walk just over a 1/2 mile to and from the train in order to go to work. Just recently I added in another day of jogging 1.
Avatar m tn Hiya, You probably think that losing weight involves hardcore exercise which can be so strenuous and tiring, however even just 15 mins of stationary cycling (for example) can make a big difference long- term. Stationary biking, cycling, running, treadmill, dancing, jogging... There is so much that can be done and is so easy, you can even do them while watching TV or listening to music. 15 mins a day and a healthy diet with slightly smaller portions will make a difference.
Avatar n tn run at 6mph for 2 minutes then run at 3mph or rest for 2 minutes) will be more effective in losing weight than if I ran or walked at a steady pace.Is there any truth to this>?
Avatar n tn So, if I continue to do that and walk for about an hour or more a day on a treadmill or outside once the weather cools down, how long do you think it would take for me to get down to about 165-175 lbs. I know people lose weight at different rates, but just for a bit of a benchmark, my dad used this app for about a month (don't know why he quit) without any exercise and he lost 10 lbs. Thanks for your help!
Avatar f tn Losing weight does have a lot to do with diet, but I've always found that exercise works best for me. Walking is really good, but you have to keep changing things up, so your body doesn't get used to the same thing. During the winter, I do about 3-6 miles/day because I have a walking partner and we can get out, but during the summer, I'm more likely to hit the treadmill because hubby doesn't like me walking alone and it's really too hot to do a lot outside.
Avatar f tn You have to excersice different parts of your body focus ob exercise s that only help your thighs.
