Avatar f tn My suggestion is to changing your diet to kick start the weight loss. It worked for me.
Avatar f tn Yet I contionusly gained weight. I downloaded my diet diary and bought a heart rate monitor to see how many calories I really burn during my workout. I stuck to the calories on the app and it was even healthy calories. Gained another 2 pounds since then. Idk what I'm doing wrong but my pants are too tight and I am freaking out.
Avatar n tn I know the feeling. There is always a tomorrow or next week when it comes to proactively losing weight. And if I feel overweight then yes I want the weight gone yesterday. Some advice. Don't drop the weight quickly, this is rarely a long-term solution. If I took time and had the mental discipline I could have lost weight many times over. Do it once, do it right. Issues with weight and body image are taxing (emotionally, physically and financially) and demoralizing.
Avatar f tn If you are aiming at losing weight, it is important to calculate your current BMI and the target BMI. The target BMI should be in a healthy range. Aside indulging in moderate amounts of physical exercise it is also essential to maintain a healthy diet plan. It is important to know that a diet plan is not about cutting down calories; it’s about ‘healthy’ eating. With cutting on diet one may initially lose weight but this may remain static or increase later.
Avatar m tn I agree that your body has adjusted to your routine and you need to change things up a bit... you can do this by changing your exercise routine - do things you aren't used to doing. Once your body gets used to a certain routine, that's just what it expects on a daily basis, so it's not longer a challenge. Same with your diet...
Avatar n tn s one thing to lose weight, another to lose a specific amount in a short amount of time. Losing slowly and steadily by changing your lifestyle and diet is the way to go, but nobody can tell you how quickly the weight will come off. It depends on your metabolism, how much exercise you can handle, and how disciplined and knowledgeable you are about eating healthfully.

Avatar f tn I do. I started dieting in earnest this summer and lost about 5 pounds. I thought it was 10, but the scale said otherwise. I'm running now 3 days a week-6 miles running/6 miles fast walking. I am now REALLY seeing a difference. At first I seemed to gain weight, but my pants are loosening dramatically and I'm getting great results. The only way I've ever lost weight dramatically is by exercising.
Avatar n tn t want to lose weight fast -- you want to lose it slowly so it stays off by changing your lifestyle, which will include diet. But if you don't know what's wrong with the knee, it's difficult for you to know what you're able to do safely as far as exercise.
Avatar f tn Keeping track/changing my diet by far had the biggest influence on my weight loss (I was running 100 miles a month and still gaining weight, and I wasn't eating that unhealthy, but just more calories than I was burning I guess). I set very small goals, aiming for losing 5 pounds in 6 weeks vs. 30 pounds in 6 months. I run a lot, and even while I was gaining weight I would run a lot.
Avatar n tn Maybe look into changing from low fat, to low carb diet. Low carb diet helps some - definitely has helped me where no other diet has. make sure your levels are optimal, as well.

Add in the approximate 2000 calories I burn with my exercise and I should be melting into a puddle! We do a lot of weights, pilates, abs, pushups, strength bands and squats at my aerobics class so I know my body is changing. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong?
