I think the real key to losing weight is just knowing your body and figuring out what type of adjustments you need to make to not only your diet, but your everyday activities.
last summer i went on a program called slim in 6...its a six week program of videos...last summer i lost around 20lbs in 4 weeks (i went on vacation)..they give you a diet to follow but i hate dieting and i didn't stick to it...i picked it up again this summer because i went on vacation and i put on over 15 lbs (can someone explain to me why everyone in the south fries their food? i though i was gonna have a heart attack)...but neways i took of over the 15lbs in about 2 weeks...this time i just ate less and did the program 2 times a day...(ur supposed to do it twice a day but like i said last summer i wasnt really following the plan to well)...this program is seriously the only thing has ever worked for me...u dont really lose a whole bunch of weight but you lose hella inches...thats why they call it slim in 6...
Pi-Yo.....a combo of pilates and yoga....it works WONDERS!!!! It really tones your mid-section, arms, and legs. And as far a nutrition...PAY attention to labels and portions. Eat a lot of whole grains( I'm addicted to the 9-grain bagel at Panara) and drink tons a water and you will feel full.
when i first got to college i gained weight and then for some odd reason i lost it....oh wait i know y i had acid reflex and that kicked my ****......but eversince i got that taken care of i havent gained n-emore weight and i be eatin up a storm like at christmas i weighed 123 and now im 118 and cant seem to get passed that so i dunno
I lost like 45 pounds.
But what u di is different depending on what works for you. All i did was walked almost everywhere that I needed to go and I changed the way that i Ate. I still ate the things that i wanted, i just didnt eat as much as i used to. U should eat like 5-6 light meals per day. Dont just cut out the food. If u do, believe me, your gonna be sick and u will be tired ALL OF THE TIME. Its becuz when u dont eat ur body isnt fueled.
I have no idea whats going on...but i've lost 6 pounds in 2 weeks here at temple.....
so instead of the Freshman 15...im losing it.....and i honestly dont know what the hell im doing...my friends think im secretly starving myself...::shrugs::...if i am i haven't noticed...i've been so busy and doing so many things that i dont even know anymore....
thats not good...but it isn't all THAT bad....i dunno...its crazy...
