My boyfriend can lose weight no problem while i can gain it all day long...I want to be active but he's not being supportive...i need motivation ..... does anyone else have this issue? I just downloaded this app so I'm new to this...where should i start if I have pretty much worked in an office for the past 4 years and haven't been active in that amount of time ...anytime i have tried to get a workout going i always end up sore....i have no idea what I'm doing....help

That's one reason why I really like these apps and stuff. You have a bunch of people who are in the same boat as you and you guys can be each others motivation. I always try to remember that I am loosing weight for myself and so I can feel comfortable and feel sexy in my own skin.

Just don't think at all just workout you don't need someone pushing you and motivating you. You just need to motivate yourself and learn what you can do the next time. Your are an adult toy don't need your boyfriends help just don't think and workout.

Yeah I kno I am in your same boat i have been to busy raising three kids for seven years and now i am very un happy with the way i look cause i am only 25yrsold... And I barely started maybe two months ago and i think if you start off with the easier workouts doing them a couple times will kinda make you more confident taking on new and harder workouts... No Excuses, Work Hard, Get Results... Your not alone Im here if you need im not a pro by any means but always good to have some one in your corner...

Do you take vitamins? I don't know where to start on being healthy... I'm 26 and all i have done is drink for the past 5 years

I just recently got my groove back. I started off slow and worked my way up. No pain no gain! Make better food choices that help give more energy. Get your bf involved go for a walk together bike or skate. Streching will help with the soarness. Also try Arnica gel or peppermint oil for aches.

Thank you sooo stretching is something i forget to do... Thank you sooo very much

You are very welcome

It may sound silly but start by exercising for 10 minutes whenever you can fit it in  and  try to do this 3 x a day     OR exercise 15 minutes  2 x a day   Don't feel guilty if you can't set aside 45 minutes or more a day    The trick is to MOVE or STRETCH whenever you can  Aim for 20 minutes a day to start but each time just focus on the moves  If you do them properly you will immediately feel energized and hopefully more eager to do another short workout later.the same day    Don't worry about how long  you are working out     as long as for that short time you put yourself into it COMPLETELY     Remember that you are supposed to enjoy working out

No i dont take vitamins, i am barely starting as well i just cut out sugar and am eating healthier..what is your goal as of right now... Like me im not trying to be a fitness fanatic i just want to lose 20lbs and gain more energy to keep up with my kiddos... And just doing some kind of exercise everyother day gives you tons of energy and helps you sleep better... Already some great benefits to getting fit...

Here's another suggestion   Instead of exercising your thumbs on the phone     get other parts of your body moving instead      I can't type while Im working out    Cmon girl     The first step is the hardest and it gets easier after that

I'm at work right now other wise i would get to it

Hey ! Recently I started working out and honestly I think its the best choice I've ever made ! So based on experience I think the first thing to do is to write down what u want to work on like having a flat stomach or nice legs etc... And also write down how many times u want to work out and how many min. U want to work out. I would also write down things u should and shouldn't eat becasing part of losing weight is eating healthy ! (I know this method seems cheesy and weird but it really helped me figure out what I needed  to do to lose weight and become fit.) And then act upon what you wrote and just remember u don't work for ityou don't get it !!! And also just ignore the negative people in ur life !

Sorry if that was harsh    From experience I will tell you that I may not get to the gym every day BUT I focus on ME  whenever I am there   I don't stop to chat for long  Im there for my well being   Don't mean to sound preachy but you do need to be in the zone to really benefit   SO make yourself a WICKED dance playlist and use it   You can start as soon as you want

Remember too     that you really don't need a gym OR machines to get great exercise    A stability ball is a great thing to use

i think the best way to start is by cleansing your body! start eating healthier and never think about it as a diet --> it's a new lifestyle

then start by walking 30 min per day + some stretches so ur body can ease in to exercising

then u alone will feel motivated to upgrade your exersice routine and u'll be doing workouts in no time!

i think the best use for this app right now is the yoga workouts ===> an easy way to relax, burn some calories, without shoking your body with things it's not used to doing

personnaly i'm fat :) ^^ but exercising has changed my life and it will change yours too GOOD LUCK

Yes I had the same issue.my boyfriend left me 4 years ago because gained lots of weight I was always 105lbs until 4 Years ago due to personal relationship issues but decided that I can prove to my self that I can do it on my.own and don't need his support to do it.I was 258lbs and now I am 135lbs I have lost over 123lbs total and now I'm proud that I give myself some time.to do that.now he looks at me like omg can't believe she did it without me.but guess what I did and will always do...

I would suggest starting with the quick workouts on here 5-7 mins. My first exercise completed on here was the 7min scientific workout. Then I wanted another one and another one. This app has endless possibilities. Depending on your time, fitness level, etc. go to the workouts and browse different sections. Full body, legs, arms, yoga, etc 

It doesn't matter where you start, just start

Hi, I have same issue. My boyfriend loves working out and expects I do the same. I think they try to be supportive but just don't know how. They lack encouragement skills. Do it for you and don't take it personally. This app is great and there always a kind stranger motivating, encouraging to go on.
