Need some help.

I weighed 127 lbs when i first found out that i was pregnant, and when i gave birth to Ryan i weighed right around 155. Ryan is 7 months now and i still weigh about 155 lbs, no more or less. I have always struggled with my weight, and i hate to get sweaty during excercise, but i really want to get this weight off. I just need some tips on how to get my energy up and actually want to excercise. I've thought about taking a class, but with school and work im always exhausted. Any ideas?

  • You could get a pedometer and track your steps. Getting more activity in by walking further in parking lots, or taking a walk around the block can really add up. Your metabolism is probably slowing down, so activity can help boost it back up.

    I started having a Cinch shake for breakfast and that really helped me. It's got lots of protein, so I wasn't hungry, and it's the type of protein that builds muscle. Muscle is the best way to boost metabolism. Good luck!

  • Agreeing with mnrock about parking farther away and walking more, take more steps in everyday activities. If you possibly can, join a class. It is good for the state of mind as well as the body.

  • A pedometer is a really good idea...you could set yourself a goal...and make it fun.

    To help with energy I would eat more fruit..preferably before meals as opposed to after as fruit is very easily digestible and you will pretty much get instant energy from it.
