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>?
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 It is possible to lose a pound a day. You should consume between 800 and 1,200 calories a day depending on your weight and how much you exercise. Cut out sugar, fat, salt, and most carbohydrates. Vegetables and proteins fill you up quickly and have very few calories. You will need to burn 3,500 more calories than you consume in a day. Do some calorie-burning aerobic activities. Drink enough water.
Avatar f tn Is running on a treadmill for 30 mins a day a good way to start loosing weight ? I currently do no excersise at all.....and what is a good way to loose stomach weight ??? Help me please.im 17 and 166 lbs...im only 5 foot tall...and I look horrible...
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.
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 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 f tn Try taking a work out rest day once a week, and let yourself have a cheat meal once a week, too, if you do not binge. As long as you are losing the weight the healthy way, you will get the results you want, without gaining it back. Don't give up! You can do it!
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 m tn I'd try a different treadmill. Heart rate monitors on machines are often way off base. Also, Kenkeith gives good advice about other factors... metabolic changes affect the heart. Are you diatbetic? Losing 70 pounds rapidly has to have given your basal metabolism a wedgie, it's going to take a while to stabalize.
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 4 speed for 60min, that hurts my knees! They are so sore and tight. Going on the eliptical isnt a problem. Its the treadmill stuff that *****. What other things on the treadmill i can do?
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 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 f tn its been slow going, but when i look at my size now, it has been worth the hard work. it took a long time to put the weight on, and it wont melt off over night. please dont give up. you will lose weight.
649848 tn?1534633700 I did Biggest Loser, Yoga for Weight Loss, one day, and spent 30 minutes on the treadmill yesterday.

If not, is there some way we can help you? Remember: We win by losing -- weight!! Wishing everyone a wonderful successful week.
1396846 tn?1332459510 Down 40 pounds, trying to introduce exercise into my weight loss journey. I got a treadmill so I have been walking on that at a slow pace holding on to the handrails. I can only do it for a short time before my leg gets weak and starts going numb but a little is better than nothing. I have also been working on school and trying to get a career that I can do since disabiliy isn't working for me. I am trying to keep a positive attitude through everything.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have any secrets to losing weight with hypothyroid? Have been diagnosed now for a yr and 1/2. Have joined a gym and been eating more veg. and fruit but still can't lose any suggestions?
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 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 .. In conclusion I go to the GYM probably 4 days . I have been doing that for 4 weeks but I haven't loose weight or loose any fat from my body. About my eating I do eat 80% healthy , I need to improve my eating so lately I have been doing the 4 meals a day with low calories .
Avatar f tn If you are walking, it needs to be a brisk walk (which is calculated at about 3.5 mph on a treadmill). Also, you need to be taking in less calories than you are expending in your exercise. Most people over-estimate the number of calories burned and think they can eat the same or even a little more. Get a good book on walking/exercise and let it help you calculate how many calories you are actually burning. Then calculate how many calories you are eating.
Avatar n tn t try and lose weight quicker aslong as the weight is coming off at a nice pace your fine because the quicker you lose the weight the quicker it goes back on and as for you noy losing as much weight as you were a few weeks ago its normal most people when they start to lose weight lose more weight in the first or second week than any other week after that and the reason you might not be losing as much weight is because you are now excercising which means your fat is now turning into muscle so you
