Well I'm 23. I am married and have two kids. I used to weigh 138lbs but after I had my son I haven't been able to get my weight off. I'm not looking for an extreme diet. I have lost the weight before without that so I know I can again. I'm just not sure what workouts to do. I've downloaded apps after apps and went on the net to find stuff even on pinterest and instagram. When I went in to the hospital I was 190. I am now at 162.7 but I've hit my plato. Before I just ran 1.5 miles but now I'm looking at targeting full body.

If you wanna lose your weight,it is a quiet simple,pure math,you need spend more calories than you entries,choose one program,do it for a month or 2,and then you will see how will your body react...after that you will know what you need to change,add,subtract...

What equipment do you have access to for cardio?  My wife loves the elliptical and we have also been doing 5k's.  Anything helps.  If you are at home with the kid, do some jumping jacks.  Shadow boxing is my fave when i dont want to run. Hope that helps.

When my husband and I make it to the gym we have a bike (one with pedals out not down), treadmill, and elliptical. I've done one 5k this year so far trying to do another in Sept. First one I power walked bc I was so sunburnt.

For cardio you can run, power walk, speed hike, swim, use machines, HIIT. All of these are effective. The key is to mix it up and get creative. Nobody wants to do something that they hate, so find a way to keep it interesting......or at least tolerable ;-) good luck.

What is HIIT? I keep hearing about it but idk what it is.

High Intensity Interval Training, which is more of another way of training. There are HIIT workouts on this site.

The first time I ever really heard about it was when I joined this app. I thoroughly enjoy it.

I'll have to look into them as well. I've heard the Spartan workouts are good as well.

I've done them a few times. Pretty intense. Any workout is intense depending how much you put into it! Always remember, you get out what you put in. Stay motivated, stay dedicated and push your limits!! You'll get where you want to be.
