Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in gym


Avatar f tn i no longer have a thyroid problem, and no longer need to take medicine for it. i have been back in the gym as of january this year and i go to the gym for an hour a day 4x a week. the reason i stopped taking zoloft was due to heavy research and testimonials i found on womens accounts basically sharing stories that mirror my own. they are taking antidepressants and antianxiety meds, and they have ALL gained 30+ lbs.
Avatar f tn there are tons of websites out there that can help you determine how many calories you need to reach a particular weight goal. oh, also remember that losing weight is a lifestyle change, not a quick fix overnight deal. so stay positive, keep at it and good luck! you'll get there.
495284 tn?1333894042 I had that creepy crawly skin thing going on. Legs arent as heavy today. The best part is getting up in the morning not in a fog even tho i feel awful. Oh i did try the steak thing and all i could do was suck the juice out but at least it was something. Still faithfully taking the vitamins. The sun is shining today so may go and sit on the back steps and suck up some sun. Havent seen much of that since last Sept.
Avatar f tn Its good you've set a goal and are looking to find out how to achieve it! However losing 15 pounds in a month is unrealistic and unhealthy. Did you know it takes about a year for your body to adjust to losing 10 pounds? It's important to remember weight loss is a marathon and not a sprint. In order to lose weight and keep it off, you shouldn't look at it as weight loss but a way to become healthier!
10286987 tn?1410261849 It is important to make sure that this journey is followed up with medical appointments. Find out your grandparents and parents medical history. You are looking for illnesses that can affect you. You also need not to get on FAB diets. Do it right, good eating and exercise. Remember that sometime personal emotional problems create eating disorders. It is your life and you need to be positive and own it.
Avatar n tn Over the winter I started back to using my elliptical machine a few days a week, also started to do some yoga on the alternate days and a bit of weight training in the gym (I really hate weight training, it's just so bloody boring!) Got my bike out a few weeks ago and I've been doing about 15-20 km every other day. Got some good running shoes ordered so I can start running when they get here.
5147790 tn?1364304489 t that hypothyroidism, insulin resistance or PCOS, all of which can cause weight gain and/or make losing next to impossible. Good luck and keep posting.
Avatar f tn I agree that losing 20-25 lbs in a month is an unrealistic goal. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week. I'd recommend that you calculate your daily calorie needs and just start losing now and see how far you get in a month, but don't stop there. Once you reach your goal, you'll be set and won't have to worry about losing in a hurry.
Avatar n tn (people are saying maybe the weights are gaining muscle) I lose about 400 calories on the Skiing machine machine (to work both arms and lose weight), it says in about 35 minutes. sometimes I lose 500 in 42 minutes. Why am I not losing any weight? In fact I gained 3 lbs. Do I need to cut out weights completely? Do I need to go to the gym 5 days a week and do more cardio? I ate very few carbs for many years. I have just now started eating a few because evreyone says I should.
Avatar f tn It's possible. Losing 1% pf your weight rvery week is ok for your body. If you will lose 1% of your weight 0.64 kg per week makes 0.64*12 weeks is 7.68 kg.
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 f tn the stair climber is the BEST machine for cardio in my opinion. Does your gym have classes? I would also recommend doing one or a couple in addition to your regular work outs. Muscle confusion is proven sucessfull in aiding people to lose weight. If you do the same thing everytime you are not challenging yourself. 30 mins of cardio is something that will help you maintain your current weight - aim for 45 mins to an hour if this is all you're going to do. Also, work on intervals...
Avatar n tn Wheat is the worst one, cutting that out alone you will notice a huge change in your weight. My mom is down 22 lbs in a few months just cutting out grains, she has gotten rid of her acid reflux and is her lowest weight she's been since before she had me. My dad down 25 lbs and he got rid of sinus problems, losing his voice and his diabetes reversing. Blood pressure is getting better. No counting calories, eat until you are full, no more cravings, no more eating every 2 hours..
Avatar f tn Losing weight is something that everyone strives to achieve. However, it must be made clear that weight loss doesn’t entirely depend on the amount of exercise you get. Learn about ways that you can lose weight and keep it off. The article below outlines some great ideas for you to use in your endeavor for weight loss. A good way to help you lose weight is to monitor and keep track of how many calories you consume each day.
Avatar f tn Losing weight is difficult without eating healthy foods, even with a lot of exercise.
172023 tn?1334672284 Since losing almost 45 pounds, I've joined a gym and am now trying to increase my cardiovascular fitness. I had a scare last year with a tentative finding of pulmonary hypertension, which has yet not been proved nor ruled out. However, since losing all the weight, I'm no longer having shortness of breath when I exercise. Anyway, I can't seem to increase my endurance on the elliptical. 20 min is the most I can do, and I'm dying after that.
Avatar f tn When one cuts down on calories, the body sends a signal to the brain which in turn turns on the ‘stress hormones’ and the body switches into the ‘starvation mode’ and paradoxically one may notice no change in weight or an increased weight. One would need adequate amount of calories to support the basic metabolic functions and if you work out vigorously, your required calorie intake rises.
Avatar m tn Five pounds in 3 months before the gym isn't that much. But if you keep losing weight I would see a doctor.
