Avatar n tn As the first comment correctly stated, losing weight fast doesn't last and leaves you weaker, which you don't want to be if you're getting ready for basic training. Why not wait to join the military until you're ready?
Avatar f tn I am losing weight with proper diet and exercise but when I weigh myself at night I am heavier than I was in the morning. My question is should I stop weight traing till after I lose the weight and just focus on cardio. I am 40 and I hold all my weight in my belly and chest.
Avatar f tn The problem I have is, over Christmas I put on around 10 pounds, and am now absolutely unable to shift it at all. I have never had any problem losing the weight once I put my mind to it but it doesn’t matter what I do I just can’t seem to shift it at all.
1066531 tn?1254969334 I’ve been working out for many years now, and i want to know how I can tone my body better without losing a large portion of weight, mostly my chest and midsection? I’m 6ft 198lbs I would like to be around 195 but in much better “shape”. My diet ***** and i’m trying to work on it, but I work out at the gym 2-3 times a week lifting weights and running. I dont run a whole bunch though, would that help my problem or will that just make me lose wieght?
Avatar m tn When I was in the process of losing my 70 lbs, at a certain point I added weight-training. I did NOT stall weight loss, nor did I temporarily GAIN weight. I cringe when people say that they do.... Weight-training is absolutely essential. GO FOR IT!
Avatar f tn I around 1200 cals a day I eat a good amount of protein and I go to the Gym 7 days a week, I started interval training about 2 weeks ago because I thought I reached a weight plateau but i am still not losing any more weight I am doing strength training 2-3 days a week. I have been doing this for a month counting the first couple of weeks when i lost 5 pounds. I don't even feel like I am getting toned! I am losing confidence and I just don't know what to do.....I need help!!
Avatar f tn m 21 years old and I found that I got the most flat/toned stomach when I began weight training. (Incorporated with ab workouts after). When you build muscle your body will burn more calories at rest than it would with less muscle mass. Incorporate cardio too, about 20 minutes. I also eat a diet with a lot of whole grains, fruits veggies, and no junk food like chips or anything like that.
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!
Avatar f tn So, stabilize your diet for a month and see if you are losing weight or not. If you are not losing weight, then consult a doctor to rule out anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism and polycystic ovaries. If you have any of these problems, which can start at any age, then you will find it difficult to shed weight. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar n tn Well first let me say im no expert here ...but i see a few things. 1. you're doing wieght training so you're likely adding muscle while burning fat..muscle weighs more than fat so i would suggest you ignore the scale for a bit. 2. you might try doing weigth training only 2 or 3 days a week to stay toned and add a bit to the cardio.. 3.you may not be eating enough ..
Avatar f tn Not if you do chest toning exercises while losing weight. You don't want to lose weight without toning up your body as you go, anyways. Doing so would only cause you to have saggy skin and stretch marks all over your body. Make sure you are toning up! Also, spend the extra money to make sure A. you have a really good supportive everyday bra and B. you have a good, supportive exercise bra. As far as exercise goes, I recommend weight training every other day and cardio on the off days.
Avatar n tn I am 54 years old and having a difficult time losing weight. During the past 8-9 months, I have not been able to continue my typical exercise regimen due to knee pain and surgery. As a result, I have gained the nine pounds I lost and added 7 more.Approximately two weeks ago, I started to exercise again, managing to workout four days each week, although no change in weight. Any suggestions?
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 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.
3649999 tn?1347799479 I have been exercising for 3 weeks now for 5 days a week both cardio and weight training. I am 22 years old and weight 165lbs. I have not been losing weight and when i do its 1lb and then i gain it back. I dont eat that healthy as well. I drink water but not enough. I cut out juice and soda and when i do drink juice its been 8oz only. What am i doing wrong? Should i change my eating habits completely.
1714955 tn?1308757100 A diet high in whole grains, vegetables and fruit, with moderate amounts of lean protein combined with regular vigorous exercise alternating with strength training may really help not only reduce your weight but boost your energy level and mood.
2082101 tn?1419965061 What type of exercise do you do and what weight machines or free weights are you using and how much weight have you been progressing from and too over the course of your weight loss?
Avatar f tn I am by no stretch and expert in weight loss but I am seasoned veteran in struggling over weight loss. I used to drive myself nuts over a number on a scale and through much failure final realized that losing an inch is better than losing a pound. Muscle weighs more than fat and at the rate you are exercising it may be possible that the scale is not changing even though your body mass is becoming more muscular.
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 f tn I'm not sure that's a factor given the amount of weight you intend to lose. At your age, you probably won't have that problem, but as we age, we get loose skin whether we're losing weight or not. Better to lose it now than later. I would imagine that if you incorporate resistance training in your exercise regimen you can work on that, but know that once you do resistance training and gain muscle, you have to maintain it or it will turn into loose skin. Look.
3360193 tn?1365871889 You will need to maintain a healthy diet since you will be breastfeeding. Look into doing some light weight training once your doctor releases you. Not only will you tone up but muscle burns more calories than fat does. Be sure to stay hydrated and consume all the calories needed to supply baby. Congrats and keep us updated.
Avatar f tn It works but not alone you have to eat right drink lots of water and also exercise. I do it once and a while but I really don't néed to because I breastfeed and I'm losing weight like crazy I'm even skinnier then I was before I got pregnant. I just know about it bcus I did it when I was a workout addict lol.. it gave me a really nice shape!! Then I got preggo and lost it hah. But I would do it after your 6 weeks postpartum is up..
Avatar f tn I would suggest you to lose weight in a safe way and add strength training to your routine. it will help you not only losing weight but to drop sizes by targeting the right major muscle groups. Articles fro further reading: Healthy weight loss by Mayo Clinic http://www.mayoclinic.
Avatar f tn Running fast is better for performance, running far is better for endurance. Just do what you like, both are good exercise, but running fast gets the work done more quickly if time is a factor. For me, I always liked running when I was still able to run and had no desire to get it over with too quickly, but for performance training, sprinting will make you stronger and more athletic overall.
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.
