I can't lose weight, only gain muscle
Seriously. I do an hour of cardio (usually on cardio machines some times outside) and an hour of weights. And im still large. I've been Doing this for two months 6x a week and have gained 8 lb, very discouraging when I'm trying to be smaller. I get that the number on the scale doesnt matter but, I haven't changed size wise at all, either direction. I feel like I'm wasting my time. I don't eat terribly bad at all, 1 soda a day 2waters for every non water drink I drink, and regular food.... Balanced. What am I doing wrong
I don't count, never have never will, I eat to hunger and stop when I'm full. Besides the gym I'm not very active being a stay at home mom to a baby. Like I said tho, I jut eat normal, pizza once a week, pasta now and then ice cream when I want a salad with dinner meat and veggies I just don't get it.
Woah!!!!!! Heart breaker!!!!! Lol. When you put it like that. I guess I do need to start cutting my yummies out..
Its simple, its your food. You say you will never start counting calories. Well then you will never have insight in what is truly the problem. without some understanding of what you are eating you will never get the results you could.
I eat a lot of home made food. I don't understand how to count the caloric value of a ladle of home made spaghetti sauce. I dont measure when I'm cooking, and use almost nothing pre packaged, its hard :(
I can't believe I didn't even think of google!!!!!! I google everything else!!!!!!! Wow! Awesome, I will start tomorrow. How many calories should I be eating? I know I need extra because I'm still breastfeeding.. but I'm sure not by much
From reading everything it does look like it is what you eat. And I understand you don't want to cut out the yum yums lol have you tried smoothies or healthy cookies or even kale chips? You can still have the "junk" w/o all the bad side effects that they come with if you do just a bit of research. And another thing that really helps is the app MyFitnessPal I use it and so does my fiance and it is great! It takes into account your goals and weight, etc.... then it basically counts the calories for you as long as you log it
Actually, my cortisol levels are high, so my body os stressed and holding on to every bit of everything that goes in to it. It stems from my anxiety and depression
The reason you dont lose weight is probably because you work out to much ,working to much like lifting weights is not good for losing weight it only provides you with muscle. I think you should back on the hard core workouts and try, some yoga or other exercises that help you tone up.
Good luck honey!
I do yoga 3x a week. (: love it. I actually got I'm a new anti depressant and have lost 4 lb in
2 weeks which is the pace I expected in the first place. I don't lift very heavy weights, just enough to tone while I thin out so I don't end up with chicken wings from the extra skin.
Thats great! just keep stretching and you will tone up that it will look like and feel like youve lost lots of weight!
Im a nee comer on this app and today is my first day on it and ive already done 3 workouts and im already sweating like a pig but i have a question...
My sister shes 13 and weighs about 150 is that normal or not ,shes also 5'5
And im only like 4'8
I feel like u should at least count calories for a little while to be able to tell what exactly you are consuming. Weight loss is very simply calories in, calories out. You must create a deficit while fueling your body with the correct foods:)
