I have been exercising 4 times a week for 1 hr each for the past 5 months (aerobics and also light weights), I hardly ever eat dinner, I do not eat pasta and do not eat bread often. I like desserts but do not eat them in excess. How can I loose 10 lbs? I seem to be doing everything right but I have not lost any weight at all since I started my exercise routine and this is very disappointing as my husband already lost 12.
I can understand the frustration you may feel with your husband losing weight and your not. Your eating habits looks good to me...but the first thing I would do is eat dinner. I've been told to never skip meals...and to actually add in 2 snacks. Of course everything must be healthy choices. I'm currently pregnant, so no "dieting" for me right now. But the moment I get my body back to myself, I'm going back to my regular routine of watching what I eat. I do that now, but not too often.
Anyway, when I was in my routine, I did everything you did plus used a cleansing tea (not sold in stores) daily and drink lots of water. I initially started the tea about 3 months after giving birth to my last baby and used it for about 4 months. My starting weight after birth was 271lbs...at the 3 month mark when I started the tea I was at 265lbs...After the 4 months of using the tea I was at 249lbs. Please note that during the 4 months of use I barely worked out....maybe once a week for 2 hours.
True you can get a cleansing tea anywhere, but I chose the one I use for several reasons. Its 100% Organic, extremely gentle meant to be drank everyday non stop, it works better than any other brand out there, and I get cash back when someone I told about the product orders. You can find out more info on my blog. http://extraincomesolutions.blogspot.com Somewhere in there I posted how the tea affected me.
Do this breathing technique everyday and it will help to reduce weight gradually.It increases the oxygen in the blood and improves the metabolism.Keep up the physical exercises.Drink plenty of warm water.
Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute.
Kapalbhati -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in). The breathing in(through the nose) will happen automatically. Establish a rhythm and do for 20 to 30 minutes twice a day. Children under 15 years – do 5 to 10 minutes twice a day.
Not for pregnant women. Seriously ill people do it gently.
Take slow deep breaths for one minute after doing this kapalbhati.
To lose weight naturally
Drink plenty of warm water. Eat fruit and vegatables. Reduce/stop wheat products..
Do kapalbhati pranayam(described in my previous posts) for 30 minutes, twice a day, everyday.
Lie down and rotate each leg 20 to 50 times, clockwise and anti clockwise.
While lying down, move your legs as a cycling motion for 2 minutes.Come back to report your progress.
I'd be interested to know what you mean by "light weights."
When you work out with weights, you should be lifting enough that, by the end of 8 to 10 repetitions, you absolutely can't do any more while still keeping good form.
If you aren't tiring your muscles in this way, you're only working within what your body is already capable of, which isn't enough for weight loss.
Can you hire a personal trainer? Even just one session with a trainer can help you find out what changes you could make in your exercise routine.
If exercise is challenging, or it's hard to fit a full 30-60 minute routine in your schedule, see if you can find a gym, personal trainer, or physical therapist that uses a whole body vibration machine. Working out on this kind of machine only takes 10 minutes at a time and you can vary the settings to match your fitness level. You might think it's not much, but your muscles will feel it afterwards! :)
