A couple of months ago I put on about 7 lbs. I can't lose it!! I've tried cutting down on my food and eating healthier, I walk an hour and a half every day, I work out, I very rarely drink alcohol. I don't know what more to do. I have my bad days, mmm choccy, but thats not often. Heeeeelp meeeee!!!

I've heard thats good but I've also heard you put the weight back on again when you stop eating like it. I just want to shift 7 to 10lbs in a healthy, normal way. I don't exactly want to follow a diet. I'm beginning to think I'll have to live on lettuce for the rest of my life lol :)

For myself i focussed on speeding up my metabolism rather than diet. I replaced chocolate with honey, pastries with granola bars,soda with tea/juice smaller meals about 5 a day plus healthy snacks

Also when i first started working out i started with a lot of short 5-10 min workouts throughout the day i think that helped a lot in the beginning

Goodness I'm sorry everyone. I've just realised how negative I've been to everyones replies. Sorry!!! I'm obviously more fed up about it than I realised. I'm definitely going to look at substituting more :) hopefully that will help. I'll probably take up running again too. Fingers crossed!

Normally walking is not good to lose fat. It doesn't pump the blood faster, it doesn't challenge you. A excersise needs to let you sweat everything you have out,it needs to KILL you!

1)Find out your daily caloric intake 2) make sure your getting the right amount of fluids I.e water 3) eat a clean and balanced diet 4) choose workouts that will challenge you and get your heart rate up add some resistance training if possible 5) stay away from the scale use a measuring tape and take your measurements use them to check your progress once a week
