Common Questions and Answers about Losing weight in hips


1293887 tn?1332702847 Maybe we could encourage each other to exercise, share meal recipes and our weight loss. I have lost about 6 kilos in the last few months but am struggling with the last 7 or 8. I would love to get down to maybe 60-62 kilos. I don't know what that is in pounds.
7874959 tn?1395945321 Hello, I too live in the UK. I have arthritis in my spine and early arthritis in both my hips. At the moment I am in severe pain. Ibuprofen did not help me as it gave me an internal bleed. I refused spine injections, and I do not like taking strong painkillers. I take paracetamol and try to keep supple. I have always liked walking, but lately I cann ot even do that comfortably. Been crying today with the pain.
Avatar f tn The problem is that I just want to lose my belly, face, and neck without losing my hips, butt, and legs. I need help can someone give me some advice.
Avatar n tn Its also normal to put on a little weight at this stage, If you want to look good then embrace this and keep up the sports, Focus on fitness not weight. if you do will find that weight to be the right shape and in the right places. If you try to hold on to your childhood figure you may end up looking very unhealthy despite being thin.
Avatar f tn How can I lose weight overall, but mostly in my thighs. My hips are naturally wide, it runs in my family, but within the past two years I've gotten unfit. My hips are wider and my thighs are bigger. I don't have much of a problem with my stomach. My goal is to make my thighs smaller and lose the cellulite. I'd like to lose about 20 lbs. and tone up my thighs especially. Any suggestions on how to do this? All help thanked!
Avatar n tn In the last few weeks she has lost weight to where you can feel her ribs most of the weight has been lost in her hips and stomach. She has never been a dog that ate very much, usually id fill her large bowl up maybe 3 times a week. She has slowed down eating her pedigree senior formula food and really only eats it when milk or table food is mixed in with it. Should this be taken as a sign that she no longer likes her food, she is also getting into the garbage more often.
Avatar f tn I have been doing 7 miles a day on the stair stepper, but I am having trouble losing the weight. I plan on going back to bikram yoga in another 2 months when the twins are on solids and I can leave them for 2 hours at a time. My goal is to be back in a size 4 by September. What are you ladies doing to drop the weight? How is it going?
Avatar m tn My nutritionalist tells me to do as much cardio as possible, its the best in shedding weight, but as a man i think adding weights once or twice a week will help tramedously as well as it will help tone as u loose the weight and aid in the weight loss. her tips..
Avatar f tn It's not unusual to gain a little weight when first starting to exercise. When you begin an exercise program, you begin building muscle, so even though you aren't losing pounds, you might be losing inches. You might want to take your measurements - waist, bust, hips, thighs, arms - you might actually be getting smaller. You might also want to think about getting your thyroid tested to make sure it's functioning properly since hypothyroidism is a major cause of weight gain.
Avatar m tn now I am back to diet and exercise (I am eating more, but the exercise makes me hungry, but its mainly more fruit, bigger salad, etc...) and I am losing weight but slower than when I did not even notice that I was losing weight. I have dieted before and I have NEVER seen myself lose weight when I was not focused. I don't get it. I am not sick or anything and I am only on allergy medication (I don't even take it much).
Avatar n tn Wow Congratulations on your weight loss, I think it might be worth having a trip to the doctors to check everything is in order, How did you lose weight? some aches and pains will be because of the weight loss, I lost 154lbs in 18 months on my own,I dont get any real pain except when i sit on my butt to long, not got so much padding there anymore, lol.
10527507 tn?1444453381 I'm 3 weeks post partum and I noticed that I gained most of my weight in my hips/thighs, how long (if ever) does it take for your hips to go back to "normal" I went from a size 3 to a size 6. I'm in the military and I reallly don't want to buy all new uniforms, I have 3 weeks but doubt it's happening. Lol thanks in advance!
Avatar f tn d have gained most of my weight after back surgery and then retiring ,7 years ago. But I have been trying but have had problems losing the weight,I had gained about 28 lbs, my height is 5in. I recently got really determined and lost 10 lbs and needing to lose another 20 lbs! I workout 3-5 times a week,usually dvds ,Rocking Body by Shaun T,turbo jam or biggest losers walk .if the weather permits I also walk outside. My body frame is pear shaped,my weight goes directly to my hips and rump !
10314769 tn?1409238579 I was watching my salt jk take but the way baby was in there blocked my circulation from my hips down. From hips down I has the worst swelling possible Dr was constantly worried. This is #3 and have no swelling to very minimal. Iv gained the appropriate weight amount it fluctuate a 1 lb or 2. You should be fine. I weighted 175 before this pregnancy and I'm 5.3 but we're all built differnt I could wear size med. Shirts and wore pant lrg to xlrg.
Avatar f tn Because of the different positions in ballet, it forced my feet out instead of turning in, and it actually corrected my feet/hips alot. The other option was to do surgery and to be in a wheelchair and have to learn to walk again but my mom opted out and today, I'm fine! (Now 29) I'd get a second opinion. I know Down's kids muscles are different as well but thought I'd share that with you.
Avatar n tn As we exercise we build lean body muscle mass which weight more than fat so the scale reflects no weight loss when in fact the body is trimming down fat. Measure your waist and hips as a guide for trimming down. The tape measure will measure loss of inches and your clothes will start to feel looser. As long as the body is toning up, there is weight loss.
Avatar f tn Here is the answer to this question. In order to lose weight, you have to subtract calories. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs/week, so in order to lose 1 lb/week, you'd have to drop 500 calories from your BMR each day (1 lb is equal to 3500 calories, so 500 calories X 7 days = 3500 calories or 1 lb). OR you can drop 250 calories from your diet and increase .....
5946774 tn?1389187935 m a house cleaner and exercise regularly so it made no sense to me lol thanks breast feeding is a life saver with losing the weight lol that was at 3 weeks can't wait to see the progress at my 6 weeks check up tomorrow
1396846 tn?1332459510 I have been on lyrica for a while now. My doctor has increased the doseage and I am gaining weight in my stomach like crazy. Not sure what is going on with that, I don't want to gain any more weight than I am already carrying, which is alot. Next week I will be starting a heart healthy diet, my mom lives with me and has been seeing a cardiologist, so I figure that may help. If the diet doesn't help I may have to stop taking the lyrica.
1222635 tn?1366396286 If you fit into your pre-pregnancy clothes that's great, forget about the numbers on the scales!! Just thought I should also let you know that if you're breast feeding, exercising too much can cause your milk supply to drop because your body's energy is focused on losing weight rather than making milk! This happened to me with my second daughter and my milk dried up when she was two months old. This may not happen to you but just thought I'd mention it.
Avatar n tn I am losing weight even though I was told I had an underactive thyroid, I have advanced osteoporosis, could my adrenal glands be the culprit?
Avatar f tn Im 22yrs old and have always been a healthy size 12 with a nice stomach but weight on my thighs. I have really rapidly put on ALOT of weight around my entire stomach including hips, it feels very loose but its alot of extra weight, atleast a stone and a half in two months, i have been taking bisoprolol for a heart condition called bigamini and wonder if this could be related?
Avatar m tn Most days can only bear weight on one leg climbing stairs etc. Xray on hips 5 months after the 1st flare up showed normal, recent mri on spine has ruled out a specific arthritis on spine which affects hips (wasn't suspected but needed ruling out). Im left with still the hip pain and each step I can feel through my body. They seem to swell behind the hip into the buttock, Ive suspected bursitis from the start but nobody has commented on that.
4528412 tn?1357069833 t eat past 6 and would eat a little something within 30 mins of waking up to get my metabolism going, I also tried to get out everyday and walk my baby or get on my hips actually just went back in right before my son's 2nd birthday ha. Everyone is different though, so don't stress yourself if you find you're not losing weight as fast as you thought or would like too, it's hard work but you can do it and just remember one day you will get your body back!
Avatar n tn Squats, and lunges, and the best one, find a heavy weight, lay on your back, feet flat on the floor close together, put the weight on your hips, then clench your butt together as hard as you can and raise your butt in the air. It should like like you are slowly thrusting the air, and once you get tired, you want to increase the intensity by doing at least 20 more fast thrusts.
