hi i am a personal trainer. losing 40lbs is a considerable goal and would require numerous and consistent lifestyle changes as well as a good fitness regimen. i specialise in womens post pregnancy fat loss and core strength. if you need a more detailed account let me know.
oh and its not as daunting or difficult as it sounds it just takes some commitment
at a guess i would say 3-6 months but it entirely depends on your level of commitment
hope this helps
yea of course, i can send you a basic nutririon and excersize plan if you would like just pm me and ill get some more details from you. the more you know about the things that made you gain weight not just food but your emotional triggers for eating etc the more weapons you have for the fight
its would take around 2 3 months ..if u will follow same routine ...but remember take lot of fruits and vegetables if possible and last but not the least "WATER". drink as much as water if possible .....
nothing u r going to get in a small span ....be patience ...i have reduced 5 pounds in 3 weeks ...but only thing i did is cut down my daily diet subtituting that with vegetables like carrot cucumber onion lemon in short term salad
It has taken me about a year to lose ~20 lbs. I still have 29 lbs to go to get to my goal weight. I have been losing anywhere between a 1/2 a pound to a little over a lb. per week. It's a little difficult for me to lose weight because I have PCOS and insulin resistence (different than being diabetic). I think that it depends on the person and how much effort you put into losing weight. Are you a stay at home mom or do you work? The reason that I ask is if you are at a stay at home mom, you could see if there are places or groups that have activities that you can do with your daughter...like using your daughter as a weight and lifting her up into the air. I don't have a kid, but I do have a cat. I play with her and she gets me moving in the house. It's not the same as walking a dog, but it's still some moving. I also use the gym at my university. I started out using the elliptical and then when I hit a plateau, I started using the treadmill. I use it 5x per week for an hr (not including the 5 min. cooldown). I lift weights once or twice a week for about 15 go 30 minutes. Once or twice a week, after using the treadmill, I'll get on the elliptical for 15 min. Ok, I don't always get to do that but I try to squeeze it in if my schedule allows it.
I lost 60lbs in a year and a half.
Thank u! Workout. Start easy though, like if you are watching tv, dont sit, do squats, or jumping jacks. Eat fruit and veggies! its a must! Lay off salt. :)
I lost 35 pounds in 3 months. You can't hurry weight loss, it is worse and is harder when you try.
The only thing that does, cutting out calories and increasing activity. Hint, if you feel hungry grab a carrot, apple, banana or other fruit. If you don't want any of those, your NOT hungry, just bored or feeding an emotion or habit. Take a walk instead, drink some water, find something to fill your time with. Once you've created healthy habits you will be surprised at what your body will look like. I was!
Your welcome, doing it because you want to, is half the battle. Look at your little achievements everyday, rather then the big over all goal. I used my WII a little too, because you could set weekly goals and it was a little fun stuff to enjoy.
Just remember that muscle weight is denser than fat, so if you exercise, you will look smaller even though you haven't lost all of the weight.
That is the best motivation in the world; teaching your child to live well and healthy. Great. Now you can just get out there and do it.
I'm not surprised. I saw a huge difference in a couple of weeks and I was 66 when I joined a gym.
Depends on how hard you work. don't starve your self because the more you starve the more your body hangs tighter to it's emergence stack of fat. Instead try to eat a small healthy meal every 5 hours. And exercise often. Don't expect anything magical. with persistence time and hard wok it will happen.
I think that if you are eating right, staying active, that you should at least give yourself as much time as it took to gain it.
Check out the Primal Blueprint diet info. It is good stuff. And take the long view.
40Xs longer than it took fur you to put it on
