  • All I know is that if I burn more calories than I eat-I lose weight. If I eat more calories than i use-I gain weight! You don't need to get a game system, or a gym membership. Start a routine right now where you do stair steps-start at 5 times and work your way up! Make a conscious decision to park clear across the parking lot, walk in as fast as you can, walk out to the car as fast as you can. Just keep finding little ways like this to add some activity to what you are doing, at the same time make sure you eat a protein rich breakfast, a piece of fruit for a snack, a low calorie-high punch lunch, an afternoon snack of fruit or yogurt, and a light dinner. Be aware of the calories you put into your mouth, and try to make each calorie count for some good. Do this for 6 days, on the 7th day-eat whatever you want! Then start the cycle over again! By doing this I lost 85 pounds over a 6 month period, and it stayed off.

  • i was 240 pounds 8 months ago i am now 189 and to start of with for the first month OK start of with just stopping all sodas and teas and coffees drink pure bottled water lots of it that will curve your appetite also then stop all red meats they have a lot of injected steroids in them that will cause you to gain weight and a lot of dyes and sugars in them also eat chicken fish even pork if you feel you need a red med eat lamb its healthy for you or eat veal they have nothing injected in them and u will feel a little more energized and a little lighter by the 2nd month then start with walking 3 days a week a little at a time to build your muscles up in your legs .Thats how i lost all my weight but you dont want to do it to quicly because you will have a lot of loose skin thats hard to tighten back up

  • Find out what your daily calorie consumption should be based on your height and weight and stick to that number. In other words, do not eat more than what you are allowed. I did this and dropped 15 lbs. You have to keep track somehow of what you eat so you can mentor yourself. Exercising helps keep things moving but losing weight is pretty much 85% what you eat. If you need metabolism booster, try replacing 1-2 meals a day with a healthy meal replacement shake. Visalus has a good one. You can pm me for details. My point was to encourage you to track calories, enjoy a walk with the kids and start looking forward to looking AWESOME! ;-)
