Avatar m tn t losing weight I lost motivation. I really like Zumba so it keeps me motivated to go even when I am not losing weight. I have been a dancer since I was 3; which is part of the reason I tend to lean towards Zumba. I got shin splints running and my body hurt all the time.. I don't have that with Zumba. Honestly; I would do any dance cardio that would keep me motivated to keep going. Zumba just happens to be the easiest class to find.
Avatar f tn If you dance Zumba for one hour a day and eat 500 calories a day less than you need to maintain your weight, you should lose 2 pounds weekly or 8 pounds a month. This is a fast, but healthy rate of weight loss. Losing weight any faster means you're losing muscle instead of fat. You may need 60 to 90 minutes of physical activity daily to lose weight, according to the American College of Sports Medicine.
3360193 tn?1365871889 t concerned with the length of time it will take to lose the weight, I would suggest starting with yoga or pilates, that way you can get reacquainted with your body, and then after a couple months try a zumba class! It's a great way to have fun and workout all at the same time. And as always, make sure you eat well balanced meals!
Avatar f tn I have not liked my weight for a long time now. I'm realy interested in losing a lot; and fast. Do any of you guys have any tips or anything that worked for you? I really want to be able to wear shorts during summer and not look like a whale. Thanks very much!
Avatar n tn Losing weight quickly usually means putting it back on, because the only way to permanently lose weight is to permanently change your diet and lifestyle, and that takes time. Of course, if you're grossly overweight and completely sedentary, losing weight will be quicker doing anything positive than if you're not that overweight and already exercising, in which case it will take more time but also be easier to get to your ultimate goal.
Avatar f tn I'M pregnant with baby #5 I'M 25 wks and so far I've gained 11lbs. I know for me breast feeding helped me lose weight it Burns calories also zumba is a great fun work out I love it.
Avatar f tn Why am I not losing weight? I am retaining fluid, and although I might lose two or three pounds during the week, the following Monday, it is right back where it started. I can't quit or give up because I feel I would start gaining weight. I feel there is a medication issue at work.
Avatar f tn I tried losing weight before I got pregnant. Worked out hard for two months and didnt lose any! Now im 6 weeks pregnant and I already feel huge. Nothing fits. And according to the scale I haven't gained. What could be the issue? Appetite is down as I get full really fast and stay full.
Avatar f tn The rest of my day I am sitting at a desk doing school work or homework. However, I am not losing any weight, according to the wii I have gained. I'm hopeless that I will ever loss weight. What am I doing wrong and what else can I do. (I don't drink pop only water, 2% milk, and eat mostly grilled chicken. Before I started trying to loss weight i drink pop at a lot of snack food and did not work out.
Avatar f tn I have failed many times trying to lose weight. I've been married to Mr. Skinny for the past 50 years. That man can pack it away and not gain an ounce. Me, no way. I know how hard it is and how defeated we get when that scale refuses to move. Barb135 offers some really good advise. I can only offer portion control (there are marked plates that help with that) and exercise. Just make sure that you enjoy the exercise you select. I'm going to Curves and have started Zumba.
Avatar f tn Completely agree with Gymdandee. Tell us more about your diet. What's the diet? And how much weight would you like to lose?
Avatar f tn That means you'd have to lose 40 lbs in just 3 months; I don't think you can do that safely. Safe weight loss is 1-2 pounds/week. The first thing to do is stop eating all junk food, such as chips, candies, sodas, pastries, white bread and regular pasta, etc. At age 16 your body isn't fully developed, so you have to be careful of losing weight too quickly.
Avatar f tn Ya with zumba u forsure have to modify...
Avatar n tn Do you do any strength training? A light weight work out would be excellent for you. If you do Zumba, do you go to a work out facility? They are excellent for the right equipment. AND, they often have trainers and for a fee, they can get you started with what to do with the weights. I bet, though, even if you don't use a trainer, that someone that works there would walk you through a work out.

Avatar f tn Is there any 'fun' way to exercise ? I don't like going to Group because of my weight.
505857 tn?1329681517 Hi I had similar issues to you with dieting I'd eat what I was supposed to on the diet I was on and still be hungry, it turned out taht I was insulin resisitant, so I changed to a Low GI diet and the weight literally jsut fell off. Don't give up, I was trying to fall pregnant at the time, and I found a really useful tool for me was to look at the food I was wanting to ask myself would I give this to my child, after waht she has already eaten today?
