11420981 tn?1419993358 The new focus should be on maintaining strength, balance exercises, and light cardio. Please don't try too drop weight actively. It's great to stay active, but not with the goal of losing weight. I hope I just misread what you said?
Avatar f tn Diet is first and foremost in losing weight, so the first thing you have to do is make sure your calories are in check. Center your meals around lots of veggies and lean protein. As for exercise, try yoga. You can start slowly and as you become more accustomed to the poses, you can move into them more and more. While the trainer looks like s/he does the poses effortlessly, that's because they do it all the time.
Avatar n tn Why do you want to be underweight? If you love sports you most likely have a lot of muscle mas making up your current underweight BMI. Get a fat percentage measurement done and you may find that you should actually worry more about properly nourishing and taking care of your body's needs than losing weight. Don't hurt yourself, and your body will continue to play sports. Underweight is not good. http://www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/BMI/bmicalc.
Avatar f tn s a very broad question. Are you trying to maintain a certain weight or are you losing weight too rapidly for some reason?
Avatar f tn ve weighed about 159 and have been maintaining that, which is a 29 pound difference from my pre pregnancy weight. I went to the doctor the other day and had lost 5 pounds. Is this okay for my third? I eat but I honestly am just not as hungry this last trimester like I was the others, probably mostly because I feel I hardly have any room for food. Anyone else lost weight in their third tri?

Avatar f tn Maintaining a healthy weight can be tough—and losing weight, even tougher. However, there are plenty of small but powerful ways to achieve lasting weight loss success, and develop a healthier relationship with food. *Think lifestyle change, not short-term diet. Various popular diets can help jumpstart your weight loss, but permanent changes in your lifestyle and food choices are what will work in the long run. *Find a cheering section.

Other than this join a partner either on MH itself or in your neighborhood. Compare notes. Motivate each other. I am not sure what you started out at.

In a rough estimate, you need to burn about 3500calories to lose 1 pound or 0.45kg. Thus if you burn 500 calories per day, you will lose 1 pound in a week.

Avatar f tn Add strength training: Adding strength training movements will help your muscles be not only strong an flexible but also get rid of the fat in different parts of your body as long as you are training in a really good rate of intensity. I wrote a whole book about it and you can google in medhelp some of my movements here http://www.oprah.

Avatar n tn t the erections themselves but maintaining them at penetration strength ... the erection at penetration strength is a relatively momentary thing for me. I've tried the penile excercises [Kegal] and certainly they help with the hardness but not the maintaing of the hard erections. Sex has never been a big part of my relationships as I've always tended to avoid it to be honest, just too much effort !

Avatar n tn I concentrated on maintaining my weight and have so far been successful at maintaining my weight at 150 lbs for the last week. As of today (January 2, 1999) I have regained a small amount of strength, but my legs are still very weak. I am afraid to work any part of my body for fear of weakening myself any further. I am even refraining from doing any hand strengthening exercises for fear of further damaging my hands.
Avatar f tn I would focus on maintaining appropriate weight, eating very healthy, and continuing to exercise for fitness, and see what happens to the belly over the next year. I know this is probably not what you want to hear, but it's what I've learned for myself. I haven't even lost as much weight as you did -- I've lost about 30 of the 50 that I, ideally, need to lose -- and have hit a plateau.
