    I know there were a couple of threads sharing ideas on losing weight but what about a support group. Help to encourage the others to be more discipline. Update our progress, share more ides and thoughts on what we each need to work on. Anyone?

    I think it’s healthy to lose 4-5 lbs a month and keep in off.
    We can set our target weight and go from there.

    I jump rope everything morning 500-600 times.
    cut down on my food intake and walk 1-2 hours every evening.

    10 pounds in one month, that is very imbitious plan. you might want to get professional b/c that requires alot of discipline and sacrifice. once you reach your goal then the weight will come back b/c it too quick.

    PX90 program will do it.

    Jogging makes you lose the booty!!

    I recommend anywhere from 5 to 7 SMALL MEALS per a day and drink lots of water! Eat a balance of complex carbs and protein with each meal. If you’re a big rice eater . . . hate to break it to you, you need to portion it to 1/2 cup or so. A glass of water when you wake up. Green tea is great at morning and night.

    Great thread!!!

    I was trying to avoid Carbs but brown rice and wheat bread aren’t that bad. You are right on the portion of the rice..its all about portion. i drink water more then anything else BUT not enough.

    You don’t want to avoid carbs. Your body need the carbs to burn for energy or else it will use muscles as fuel before it use the fat storage.

    Just be wise when it comes to choosing your carbs. I eat a lot of dark leafy veggies with chicken and white fish. I limit my red meat intake now. On occasion, I eat a can of tuna with rice crackers for a meal. I still ‘somewhat’ follow my competition diet ‘lightly’.

    The key to dieting, if you feel like eating a chocolate bar or a piece of cake, DO IT! It’s better to eat a slice then to deprive yourself from it. When you do deprive yourself from it you will binge big time.

    Maarry, i thought the body uses free carbs, then storage carbs than fat and lastly PROTEIN (muscles). Please check for us.

    Your body uses carbs as energy. Once that runs out, it uses your muscles before it use your fat cells. Your fat cells is the last to be used.

    Here’s another tip …

    Change up your cardio routine if you feel that you haven’t seen any improvements or if you’re bored with it.

    Some days I stick to an hour on the EFX machine for an hour but I change up the resistance and incline every 5 to 10 minutes. Then there are some days that I do the stair climber – 10 minutes on it, jump off and do 30 seconds of mountain climbers, back on the stair climber. I do about 4 sets of that.

    Now that it’s summer, take advantage of the season. Take swimming lessons, run in water, do yoga outdoors, hike, go biking, hit the trails with a part of roller blades (great for thigh and butt!) etc.

    I totally agree with #9. Lifting weight does not make us females bulky! SMH!! It drives me nuts when I meet people and they look at me “OMG, I thought you would be more manly looking” WTFlying fish!!! Yes, I have competed in the past but in the three years of competition and preparation for a show, I have NEVER look like a man. Still have my curves!

    Ladies, don’t be afraid to pick up the weights!

    I had this notion that I could do one of those small marathons if I do some training. I did some research and it said to load on Carbs like spaghetti. That explains a lot. Thanks.

    I gave up that marathon(running) thing.

    I used to love jogging but not anymore.
    And I don’t like doing sit-ups!

    This is why i jump rope.
    it’s so convenient. Sometimes i jump rope 3-4 sessions a day (mainly on weekends).

    if you want to lose belly fat, do jump rope.

    PS: Jump roping: it’s a cardio work out. So, many parts of your body get they work out:D

    Personally, i’m a morning person and i found that exercse early in the morning is the best time in a day to burn fat. One, you are calling your stored fat as energy. Two, food releases insulin which blunts fat burning. When you wake, insulin is at its lowest allowing the most fat to be burnt.

    oh and if you plan to eat breakfast, eat only one hour after exercising.

    I always do an hour of cardio or some type of cardio interval early in the morning. Like you had mentioned, your body will use the stored carbs/fat for energy to burn.

    Correction to the last statement about breakfast, you actually have a two hour gap after you exercise to replenish your body with food.

    I have large calve muscles as well as my thighs are pretty ‘bulky’. To get rid of your thighs, you need to run (I hate running because it’s bad for my knees and I have achilles tendonitis). I do a lot of circuit intervals and plylometrics (will help shape them up) in between sets. You can’t get rid of your calves, believe me . . . I tried and have even ask my previous 4 trainers and coach about getting rid of them! My advice, be proud of them! It’s genetics!! Many guys that I run into at the gym compliment my legs – my calves are larger than theirs! I’m learning to appreciate my physique more now.

    As for the cramp, are you getting enough electrolytes (Sodium, calcium, and potassium). I remember after a heavy leg day at the gym with my trainer years ago, my calves cramp up bad. She told me to drink water and eat a banana. Make sure you do a lot of stretching as well. Oh yea, not to get off the subject, but I love those cliff power block jellies!! Great for running a half!

    I love lifting weights. I need to be a part of a gym – it gives me a natural high. It depends on you honestly. You can do stuff on your own. Now that it’s summer, I’m taking my cardio outdoors. I’m rollerblading ( 12 miles ). You can buy resistance band and workout at home. Follow some of the boot camp dvd or on netflix/youtube etc. If you plan on using it more than three times a week, than it’s worth it. If you’re only going there once a month/week, save your money and do it at home. You can do a lot with resistance band and a stability ball! When I don’t feel like workout at the gym, I take my TRX to the park early in the morning and tie it up on the swing set and workout there. Be creative with your workouts!

    Have fun!!
