I started working out on my lunch for the last month. I started at 174-175. I am now at 188-189. I know this could be weight gain from gaining muscles..I can tell in my butt and my legs. But my question is why haven't I lost any weight or tone anywhere else .now the scale doesn't matter .But I need help
Try doing more casual work outs to lose the weight, and stay away from more intense ones as they build muscle that you may not be ready to build yet. Also try mixing up your work outs so you can work on more then one area of the body. Remember it's better to complete a workout lazily then not at all, and keep it short to build your endurance. Hope this helps. :)
I run a mile.. which takes me 15 min.the the rest of the time I do my squats.
Thanks..I think I squat too too much..but I won't the tone legs..so what would be a great way to loose and tone?
I would suggest some low intensity cardo. I will message you a few good weight loss workouts.
Once you are breezing through causal, search cardio in work out and find you some more moderate work outs. If you need more suggestions or any help feel free to message me. :)
I had the same issue. I was really upset and felt really defeated. The first step though is an emotional one. Realize that everyday is a new step to learn and grow from past experiences mistakes and progress. Entering this phase with a defeated mindset only makes you focus on the negative and not positive gains.
I consulted a doctor today about this issue and she said to maintain a healthy balance of cardiovascular exercises and strength training. Cardio helps to maintain weight loss while strength training helps to tone. She recommended more Cardio more days of the week.
Don't weigh yourself weekly. Our weight fluctuates for many different reasons. Shoot for twice a month and never before your menstrual cycle. Also look at the looseness of your clothes, dress size, and measurements.
Hope this helps!
To be as general as possible because I don't know your exact situation but often times some weight gain is normal. Usually it takes my body 6-8 weeks to see a decrease.
Of course your diet plays a huge part. High fiber, moderate protein INITIALLY, healthy carbs and LOTS OF WATER AND HYDRATION.
If you're pushing yourself it will come.
Be blessed and feel blessed
