newbie, need to lose a bit and get fit
I just started working out with workout trainer about 2 weeks ago. I went from a size 18w to a 12 in bottoms. I still would like to get down to my high school size, a 4. Yeah, I know a longs way. But anyways I just wanted to see who out there is needing to lose a lot of weight. Or has lost a lot of weight. Or knows a thing or two for motivation.
If you could put your input please. Im trying to get down a size a week. Working out 5 days a week. Whos with me?
I'm with u I'm a size 16 looking to get to a size 12 and then go from there...I need help please any dieting tips or even how late is the latest u eat...I am now following u as well. And great job u r my motivation
Yeah, I'm totally with you as well. I lost about 40-50lbs several years ago but can't seem to lose the remaining 30-40lbs. I started around 230-240 I think and have managed to get down to about 180 (haven't been able to get lower) but always seem to fluctuate around there. Unfortunately now I'm at around 190. My gym membership just expired and I have to hold off on renewing it for now and decided to try this app finally. Did two wourkouts for a total of about 45 min today. I like that it's timed and talks you through each excercise like if you were actually taking a class. We will see how this goes. Hoping to get below 180 soon.
Im gonna try it out besides Its very convient

Have you ladies tried to meal prep? I find it helps as well, plus keep track of calories on my fitness pal
Man, im really bummed out. Ive gained like 5 lbs. Whyyyyy? And not all, my size 12 pants hardly fit. Im freaking out. I dont know what to do.
How often do you weigh yourself? I know some say that you shouldn't weigh yourself too often but I personally find that if I don't weigh myself every day I will start to slide and start gaining. If I see I'm a pound or two heavier I will try to compensate for that day and will eat smaller portions and/or exercise a little longer. Also, for women, that time of the month also affects weight. Anyway don't get discouraged. Just keep going!
I am trying to lose a lot of weight. I just started working out. I am open to any ideas and the motivation I am trying to lose 80lbs. I want to set a goal but I don't want to get discouraged if I don't meet the deadline. So any suggestions
Ha! Sorry, yes I am female. I defintely do get a little bloated around that time. I try to lower my sodium intake and drink a little more green tea than I usually do which is hard to do since I already drink about 2-3 cups a day. I also find if I wear the tighter clothing I have, I'm also more likely to keep on track and not over eat.
I tend to stay away from any sort of pills or anything artificial especially sweeteners. I try to eat as much unprocessed fresh foods as possible. Sometimes I do get a little lazy and will by the frozen prepackaged foods and instant ramen bowls especially the Korean ones, since those are actually pretty tasty. Anyway, I would say if possible if you don't like green tea, go for any kind of tea you like and if you need to add a sweetener, I would go for a little honey or raw sugar. There was actually a study just published in Nature this week on how artificial sweeteners are linked to obesity and diabetes. So I would definitely stay from that.
I love oolong tea. Actually black, green, oolong, and white teas are the same leaves. They differ only in how they are processed and how oxidized they are. Oolong is sort of midway between black and green tea and caffeine levels are also between between black and green, with black containing the most and green the least between the three. But white teas contains the least since it is the least processed. They all have beneficial properties. I say experiment and try several different kinds. I drink everything. I just happen to currently have a lot of green tea on my hands right now.
If you have an asian market closeby, I would try that for oolong and green teas. I also buy whatever looks interesting. I came across an earl grey green tea at a regular grocery store which was really nice. But I've gotten the majority of my teas from Tea Gschwendner online. They have beautiful teas. A little on the pricey side but I usually get 3-4 cups from one teaspoon of tea by steeping the leaves multiple times.
You mean work for weight loss? I drink both coffee and tea everyday. Coffee in the morning and tea usually throughout the day. I drink them both because I enjoy them. Yes, they both do have caffeine, but coffee does not have all the health promoting compounds as tea does. I would still drink coffee but I would also try incorporating drinking teas as well.
Wow I just finished working out. I feel the burn but I actually noticed I can do the full 40 sec plank and the other workouts on the summer mobility moves pretty easily now. That must mean its time to change my routine. Yay. I must be progressing. I just hope I see it on the measurements on sunday. I get measured every sunday to see how im doing. I cant wait.
Well, its Sunday. Time to weigh in and get measured. Well I guess Im not too disappointed, I actually managed to get down to a size 10. Woohoo! So Ive gone from a size 18w to a size 10 in jeans in just 3 weeks. This program really works. I love workout trainer! I cant believe Ive done all of this in just 3 weeks. Im so happy. Now, my next goal is to be a size 8 in jeans by nextt Sunday. I hope. I hope. I hope. So, who else has their measurements today?
Oh Im so mad. My phone broke and I wont be able to get another one until next month. I know its only a week but I just cant believe I cannot access my workouts thru he computer. It says I have to go pro. Anyways, Im not getting discouraged. I am going to work out with my regular workout videos. And Im going to walk everyday. I also just started a clean diet. Only veggies, fruits, meats and healthy fats. No white carbs. Im going to see how long I can do this for but so far its pretty jummy. I love the flavors of the natural foods. Im going to eat lots of salads and smoothies. Wish me luck. Ill let you know how it goes along the way. Ill keep posting here often. And Ill let you know next Sunday my measurements. I hope they will be good. Keep it up guys and gals. We can do it!
If you have a kindle fire, you can download the app from the kindle app store.
I'm about to boot out a few members who are just there, and not at all participants in any challenge, and I'll have room for you guys. Problem is... I sent out invites and they haven't responded. I only have 9 team members. ... none of them working out!!!
