Want to loose 60 pounds

Hello, last year I had a hysterectomy and repair surgery after that, I sat around alot and did nothing because of pain. I am finally starting to feel better. Also my boyfriend and I recently got back together, he sees beyond my weight, but it's really hard for me to be around his friends and thier skinny wives. My main bulk is around my stomach. I know that I need to start an excersise program, just not sure where to start? I would like to loose atleast 60 lbs.

I just bought a stepper with a DVD, going to give that a try. I wanted to start a walking program, but it's like 100 degrees outside now. Good luck : )

If money is not a concern I would look into the local gym and hire a personal trainer. They can really help with the physical part and food part too. Good luck

You can also lose weight by modifying your diet. Not by eating less but by eating differently. You can take brisk walks as long as you are not in a dangerous area. You can get weights and do some bodybuilding exercises. You can do bodyweight exercises like Hindu squats. See site below for more on these. http://www.phifoundation.org

I found diet alone can make the difference.  I recently lost 78lbs  279 -> 201 lbs (I am 6'6) and I know the embarrassment of getting out in public and exercising.  Diet, combined with light/moderate exercise such as walking or indoor exercises you can do in the comfort of your home can get you well on your way.  Once you loose the initial few pounds I'm betting you'll feel more confident in getting into more vigorous activities.  Go see a dietician.  Get them to sit down with you and draw up a meal plan and make sure you STICK TO IT.  One thing I've found is weight loss, for me at least, was it is a life style change.  Diet and exercise is something I still use in my everyday life and I plan too continue to.  In a way your fortunate, because you have the opportunity to make a durastic change to yourself in which you can look back on and take pride in, and you'll have more of an appreciation for the healthier side of life.  Goodluck!

    Send me an email  ***@**** Subject:  Kiss Your Craving Goodbye!    We have developed a way to signal the Hypothalamus without drugs entering the body!


What is the CAUSE of obesity? The malfunctioning of the Hypothalamus.
There are bacteria in the body and chemicals in our food that act as signaling mechanisms. These mechanisms cause our body to crave sugar which is why it is so difficult for people to stay on a diet! It is very well known that when we consume excessive amounts of sugar (about 150 POUNDS per year per person; more than double from 10 years ago!) we gain body fat. Sugar shuts down fat burning and causes our body to store fat.
Diets do not work because it is too difficult to stay on them for the long term
Exercise is great but when you consider that you burn about 250 calories for 30 minutes on a bike, and a pound of fat is 3500 calories, it is very difficult to lose weight with exercise alone.
Various stimulants on the market such as products that contain caffeine will increase your metabolism HOWEVER excessive amounts of caffeine causes adrenal exhaustion and heart disease so these are not long term solutions either.
The Hypothalamus is the “master regulator” in the body. The Hypothalamus controls our appetite, thirst and production of hormones. It is then not surprising to learn that when people are obese or overweight, researchers have found that the Hypothalamus gland is out of balance and not functioning normally. Some would describe this even as a diseased state.
What is exciting about this new patch product is that it is designed to stimulate specific points that bring the activity of the Hypothalamus back to normal! No other product on the market does this! And because it goes to work right away we have a product that is very easy to demonstrate (people just use it for 1 to 3 days and will experience the benefits).

Hi,

This is my personal experience. This may help you a lot.I have struggled to lose weight for years, I guess I am what's known as a yo yo dieter. With so many different diet available, I didn't know where to turn until I visited www.losingweighteasily.com they have downloadable products to help you decide. I went with Weight Watchers in the end, the recipes of which there were over 100 made me decide, to me it was normal eating. I have now lost over 30  pounds, I am thrilled.you can try this its may be possible.

I had the same problem 3 years ago. My advice to you is of course eat well and try hoodia gordonii. I have lost 51 lbs more since I added it. It just gets rid of cravings for junk food. http://devoted.to/hoodiagordonii  is where I got the great resource info. Please try it. Jess

Read your desription of the patch for the hypothalamus gland...would like to contact you about how to order it. I too like everyone else have struggled with weight since having 4 kids, but most recently with the diagnosis of Fibromyalgia it's almost impossible for me to loose weight. Since being sick my normal body temp is about 96.8 and I am always cold. I truely believe that my body can't burn the calories or fat any more. I eat very little just so I can stay at the weight I am at now. I would be very interested to hear more about your product

For the person interested in the new SP6 patch this is the web site. I to suffer from being over weight, about 30 pounds, and I also have fibromyalgia. It is awful, I have little energy, I am in pain all the time, and simple tasks cause more pain  so exercise is difficult. I have been doing a lot of research about the hypothalamus gland and how it works and next to hgh(human growth hormone) which is extremely expensive, and even more difficult to get your hands on this product is the closest thing I've seen so far to what I think might work for me. I have only ordered it this week so I don't have any actual experience with it but I'm hoping it does what it says it does.  You can check it out at http://lifewave.com/. If there is anyone that has tried it I would sure like to hear from you. Good luck to all!!

I need to loose 25kg/50 pounds.  It is quite scary as I gained a lot of wait when I worked night shift at a call centre.  Now it is to get rid of these kilos, but not sure which diet to approach.  It would be nice if I can loose at least 10 pounds per month, but which diet would help me?  Do you have any suggestions?

The way I lost weight is maybe not the healtiest most will say.  I have been told by my docter that she did not agree with my diet.  Yet back in Oct of 06 I was 203 lbs.  Im 5'3.  My cholesterol was so high my blood work was really bad.  I was so overweight I hated to leave my house.  It was emotional over eating.  I tried everything.  Diet pills, south beach, low carb, and yes they all work and the diet pill ones worked as well along with chest pains but it always came back and Id just turn around and start eating again.  It would come back.  Nothing worked for me.  Everyone is different.  Some diets will work andsome wont but will on others.  I think it just depeneds on the person.  I got sick of the counting points on weight watchers (but it worked great)  I got sick of counting caleries, carbs, weighing my portions.  I work so much I have 2 kids.  It was a pain for me.  I wanted a diet where I didnthave to keep trck, write anything, count anything.  If I ate, I over ate!  I just decided I didnt want to eat period!  But knew that wasnt possible.  

I spoke to my mother in law who is vegan and into natural healing and all this natural stuff.  She ead my eyes (irodology).  I learned lots from her.  She told me the only way to natural weight loss and good health was to detox because my body had so many toxins.  (mind you I cracked up)  I thought she was a bit wee wacko.  Still do sometimes.  ha ha

Anyhow she sent me this box of natural cleansing herbs called Tiao He Cleanse. Its a 15 day cleanse and a book called "the Master Cleanse"  I think it was..not too sure.  Well I thought the lemon juice was nasty so I decided to pick my own juice and I picked that 2 day fast "Hollywood Diet"  I felt like a retard buying it, I had tried everything.  

So I decided to detox my body and fast for 14 days.  It then turned into 18 days.  At 18 days I was down to 170.  I would take my little herb packesta do my juice everywhere with me.  It was so easy because i dodnt have to count or keep track of anything and my skin started glowing.  It worked instantly.  Alot of it is water weight but it does clean out well and does help shrink the stomach.  I started doing it off and on since Nov of last year.  I would Juice only for 5 days, and eat light on the weekends but I also did cut out meat for a few months and took vitamins and i would eat raw veggies and fruits on weekends.    Now I am down to 135 lbs.  I never thought I could be a size 7 again.  I still want to lose 15 more, but Im happy where I am.  I slowly added food back in.  The first few weeks I only did raw veggies.  I carry 2 bottles of water with me everywhere I go.  I work out but not always.  I now can eat normal again but its so much asier to watch what i eat and not over eat.  I do try and keep red meat out.  I rarely eat chicken.  I usually eat fish and egg whites.  I eat nuts and fruits and veggies most of the time.  Low on dairy.  No sodas.  I never imagined life without sweets and sodas and fast foods.  I dont even crave them, at all.

Lately Ive been down so I have been a bit depressed due to marriage issues and I made some bad choices in my life.  Anti-depres meds and bad stuff.  But I plan to bounce right back on Monday and get back on track and work on those 16 lbs.

Its only hard the first 3 days.  After that its cake because you lose like 10 years on your face.  Your skin flows.  The fat melts off.  

Ive been yelled at by my family then they turn around and try it and love it.  Many have told me Im crazy and that Its an eating disorder.  But I love food.  I will never give up food or meat, or chocolate.  I just needed to clean up and shrink my stomach.  It was kinda a jump start for me to a healthy new life.  

Some can do it, a lot can't.  It's in the mind.  A lot of people have been negative to me about it yet after all my test results.  Im healty.  Im not anerexic, and I dont have an eating disorder.  I guess everyones body is different.  Just thought I'd share.

Good Luck

Can you give me the recipe for the lemonade?  I believe it has maple syrp and cayenne pepper?  I have never done one but would like to try.  Also, were you hungry?
Blank
278680_tn?1190231017
2 tablespoons FRESH squeezed lemon or lime juice (approx. 1/2 lemon)
2 tablespoons genuine organic maple syrup, Grade B
1/10 teaspoon (a small pinch!) cayenne pepper
(10-14 oz) pure water

I only did the lemon juice diet a few times.  I actually like the hollywood juice better because I didnt have to make it.  I just bought the boughttle 2 for $30.00 at Wal-Greens and Id mix 4oz with 4oz of water 4 times a day and sip t all day and also lots nd lots of water all day.  Plus I feltthe juice had a bit more carbs and calories my body needed to make it longer on the fast.  

The Lemon juice made me weak but did work good as well.  

The first few days are the hardest.  The first day is bad, but trust me..if you can make it pastthe first day, you will be ok.  Buy a scale.  You see weight loss eveyday and it motivates you to keep going.  

Best thing to do on first few days is take a few days off work or start on a weekend.  Rent movies and just bum it in bed alot and sleep alot.  

Also, dont try working out while you are fasting.  It's way too draining and will make you hungry.  

Every now and then Id have cravings but after seing all I lost I was excited to keep going.  Its good to have an even in mind.  Like Thanksgiving.  You know you want to lose so much by then so you know to fast for so long but give your self a week or more before thanksgiving to start eating again and add raw veggies and broths first.  You cant just quit and have a big feast because it will make you sick.  I actually did that and almost had to go to a hospital I was in so much pain.  

Feel free to ask anyother questions or I can give you my mother in laws email.  She loves helping people.  :)  She's such a healer.
