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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 m tn m not sure if not having enough protein is contributing to me not losing weight. I hear people talk about how they lose a pound a week and the such, but I've run 5 miles a day for 5 days straight for 1 month and have only lost 1-2 lbs. What am I doing wrong?!
Avatar f tn Hi, you may begin with light weight training exercises, yoga or slight warmup exercises like jogging or doing treadmill. Gaining weight or losing weight are long processes, so you have to be patient. Do whichever exercises you like but aerobics are the best. Also take a balanced diet constituting carbohydrates and proteins in the ratio 4:1. Once you start feeling confident and energetic, maybe in one month, who may increase the intensity of fewer exercises. I hope this helps you.
Avatar n tn ve been working out for about a month now 5-6 days/week, 1.5-2 hours/day. I weight train for about 45 mins then cardio 60-80mins switching it up between the elliptical & the treadmill. I also keep a daily calorie journal and have been eating around 900 calories/day but thats total not net calories. Net calories total around 400-600/day depending how hard I work out that day. I stick to a strict diet of lean meat, whole wheats, vegetables and fat free dairy products.
Avatar f tn t digest well that are gumming up the works rather than easing the works. As Gym states, weight training makes a body have a better shape but doesn't necessarily make it lighter or thinner -- muscles replace fat but they do take up space. I certainly gained weight when I started lifting weights -- most of my life before that was spent playing sports or running that were mostly cardio, but weight lifting made me a bit broader.
8526246 tn?1405601876 You know walking on a treadmill with you baby might be fun and a good arm workout carrying baby and bouncing her/him. I normally like to read while I am on the treadmill. Makes the workout go by faster and I am not focused on how out of shape I am Lol!
Avatar n tn I am a 16 boy that is over weight I currently weight 230lbs and my goal is to at least weight 225-200lbs or under.. i recently just started on a diet -everyday for breakfast i only eat a bowl of cereal (with low fat milk) and a slice of toasted wheat bread......before the diet i used to eat alot of different stuff until i got myself very full..
Avatar n tn 10 and weigh 22 stones and 7 lbs for the past 3 weeks i have been exercising every day, and have been on a liquid diet, where i am having 1 slimfast milkshake as my daily meal, in the first 2 weeks i noticed that i had lost just over a stone as i was originally 23 1/2, but in the third week i have noticed that i am not losing as much weight, i am currently doing 45 mins cardio on my treadmill, followed by 15 mins on my punch bag, and then i would do weight training for 15 mins.
Avatar f tn Hello! I am 36yrs old and weigh 265lbs. My doctor put me on a low carb/no sugar diet. Last month, I faithfully exercised doing The Firm DVD's 5 days a week and walking at least 30 min. 5-6 days a week. I also stuck to the eating plan all month, with the exception of 2 days. The scale only moved (up and down) within a 3lb range. I am very discouraged. I've lost weight before using Weight Watchers. I haven't exercised like this in years....
Avatar n tn From what I can tell, your goal sounds reasonable - but I really don't have enough information. Are you eating enough? Is it healthy? Are you working out too much, too soon? Do you vary your workouts? Are you doing any strength-training - very good for you!!! You sound very motivated. GOOD FOR YOU! A very healthy rule of thumb for long-term weight loss (and keeping it off) is 1-2 pounds per week, on average.
Avatar f tn ) sorry your having a hard time with your weight , losing weight and keeping it off can be hard . i think the reason your not seeing results is because your yo yo dieting your confusing your body you dont eat so your body holds on to everything then you get and you gai it back. you have to train your body.
Avatar m tn I am a little bit active, I go to kick boxing class twice a week , workout class once a week and I do treadmill for 30 mins and I just started doing Boxing in my Nintendo WII everyday for 30 mins ..
