Avatar f tn t kill yourself) and no soda, alcohol or cigarette smoking. The key to losing weight (and keeping it off) is to never diet... diets don't last! Changing your life does! Remember, real changes don't happen over night, things on life worth having takes effort, dedication and time. Good luck!
Avatar f tn About 8 years ago I lost 4 stone in 3 months but I have put on the weight again plus more and not been successful in losing weight for more than a month. Recenty I have purchased a set of scales that tells you the level of fat, water, mucile and bone density. The device can only read up to 50% body fat. It cannot tell me my readings as I'm over 50% fat :-( I've checked the device and it is working correctly. So I am now panicing about the effects of my poor living.
Avatar f tn I would like to drop my weight down to 50 or 55. Is that an unhealthy weight? And this weight tracker thing says I have to eat around 1200 calories in every day, isn't that a little bit too little? Or is that right? And a side note, I have an injury that doesn't allow me to do any high impact sport, including running, any helpful tips?
6520484 tn?1399082398 But I still have 20lbs of fat that I put on during the pregnancy. Just wondering if anyone had success in losing the baby weight? I could use some pointers. I already eat healthy and all I drink is water and milk, no juice or pop or anything. I'm too tired to exercise (with Two week old baby and all). Anyone do anything to lose the weight that really worked?
Avatar f tn I'm about 13 weeks and keep losing weight. Not sure why. I eat, but i know I'm not getting the calories I need. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables mostly because that's what's sounds good. I'm also eating a lot of protein too. Anyone else experienced weight loss?
Avatar f tn Losing 10 pounds by Sept 23 is not a reasonable goal, as that's too much weight to lose in such a short time. Most likely the reason you can't stick with a "diet" is because you're cutting your calorie intake too severely. Nobody can stick to a diet in which they don't provide enough food. If you provide adequate calories of healthy foods, chances are you won't have any trouble losing the weight and keeping it off.
Avatar n tn First, if you're at all muscular, you're not all that overweight. If you're not muscular, you don't need to lose a ton of weight. Calories aren't key to losing weight -- how quickly and efficiently you metabolize your food into sugar and how well you digest your nutrients is far more important.
1478333 tn?1287401534 Losing weight will help prevent the possibility of getting Diabetes. The Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) shows that people with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) who are losing 10-15 pounds reduce their risk of get­ting type 2 diabetes by more than 50%. (Impaired glucose tolerance means your body is not taking the glucose out of your blood as efficiently as it should.) If you are older than 60, the DPP found that losing 10-15 pounds reduced the risk of diabetes by 71%.

Avatar n tn I can tell you from experience that if you plan on losing more weight...wait to have your tummy tuck. I lost 50 lbs and now I need to have the surgery all over again. I have also lost alot of weight (185 lbs) to begin with which may have a bearing on my results as well cause my skin is really bad...best thing is to talk to your Dr and let him know your concerns. Good luck.
Avatar f tn With my first son I gained over 50 pounds by the time I had him. I was 136 when I got pregnant. I lost only 30 of those 50 but I could have lost more if I wasn't being lazy. I was 19 when I had him.

Avatar n tn Diet control and exercise are two essential keys for losing weight in a healthy way. Losing 15 kgs in one month is being over ambitious. It is not correct and healthy to lose so much of weight at one time. I would advise you to start with what is feasible for you. Eat foods which are high in fiber so that it gives you a feeling of fullness. Eat more fruits and vegetables rich in vitamin C as vitamin C is a fat burner. Avoid sugary foods and foods high in fat and claories.

Avatar f tn My doctor said im over weight and need to lose 50 pounds.. Thats sound crazy..
Avatar f tn chart can possibly tell me i am under weight or over weight. My sister had a 3 month looking belly at 9 months and baby weighed 7 lbs. If u listen to everything these american doc say then u will go nuts. ( just my opinion btw) they told me i was over weight according to my height etc..mind u, i had a flat stomach, nice "***" big breast etc ( i am from d island) but according to their bmi chart i was over weight.
Avatar f tn I I am 20 weeks today and I have lost 23 lbs so far. I am actually at the dr now so we will see if I have gained any back maintained or lost weight again. Dr isn't worried all the ultrasounds have shown baby is big.
