Weight Loss...I'm Confiding in my Fellow FishiesPage 12 of 12    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12)
I'm doing a "cleanse." I had spoken to a professional who suggested that with all my efforts perhaps my body isn't absorbing the nutrients I put in as it needs to be "cleaned out."

It's now the second week and I don't feel any different. Still drinking up to and beyond at times 15 glasses of water a day (I have no idea when my body is going to get used to it.. wondering if I'm drinking too much water).

I find it extremely difficult to find the motivation to exercise.

Has anyone else ever done a cleanse? How about a parasite cleanse? The parasite cleanse is the one I'm most scared to do.

Well each of my Nalgene bottles is 32 ozs, considering a glass of water is 8 ozs... and I drink 3 to 4 of them a day (my Nalgene bottles full to the brim with water).

Good luck to everyone in their goals. I am another struggler with my weight. Up and down it goes.
I am aiming for 15-20lbs to lose, and to maintain that weight.
I finally got down another size, buying a house and renovating it was the boost I needed. I am revamping my gym workout this week and hopefully that will give me another boost to start some more loss on the scale.

I have always had a few extra pounds on me. The summer before I turned 16 (1997) I really cut down on eating (almost to the point of anorexia) and I started biking ten km (I lived in the country so I rode around the block lol). I lost 30 lbs. and I shot up three inches in height. I looked awesome. I felt more confident in myself and I had one great year. Then I lost my V and got pregnant (August 1998). I gained 80 lbs. with my first pregnancy. I lost 30 lbs. with the birth but after my ten day hospital stay (due to complications) I was right back at the 238 I came in at. I managed to get down to 220 and stay there for a little while but over the next two and a half years I was up to 290 lbs. Then I got pregnant for the second time (November 2001). I became addicted to water with this pregnany and when I went into the hospital to have my daughter I was down from 290 to 277 and after I had her I was down to 268 (August 2002). However I got pregnant with my third child 7 1/2 months later (May 2003) and shot up to 312. After I had my son (January 2004) I looked into the weight loss surgery and when I found out that it would take 3 years on a waiting list, I said no thank you and decided I would do it on my own. I got down to 228 (January 2006) and I was starting to feel good about myself again. However due to stress I was back up to 270 by June 2006 and pregnant with my fourth child in July 2006. I got up to 320 and continued to gain after I had the baby. In January 2008 I reached my highest point of 335 lbs.

Since then I have permanently removed myself from a "bad" relationship (on and off for 7 1/2 years), started working my first CD, started school to become a Registered Massage Therapist and I am down 60 lbs. weighing in at 275 lbs. I am 5'7" and because of my body type my ideal weight is 145-150 lbs. So only 125-130 to go. Good luck everyone!

My problem has always been to gain and maintain good healthy weight (muscle). At 30ish I was 140lbs.
So, I changed my lifestyle, I'm now 42, workout 4 days p/week, eat healthy (no sweets, garbage food like chips, etc...), weigh 210lbs. (12% bodyfat) great physique. Oh, and recently stopped smoking (I dont' say quit, cause I don't "give up" at anything). Besides what's the big deal, I just got up one day and stopped buying cigarettes, so what, big deal.

So, the opposite for someone who wanted to lose weight should do the same, monitor calories, balance protein with carbs, eat very small meals multiple times a day (good food only not chocolate bars, and chips), workout (weights and some cardio) at least 3 - 4 times a week. Give up some bad habits, alcohol (not implying it's bad to drink every now and then), cigarrettes, overeating, etc.....

See, simple not so hard is it?

When you have metabolic syndrome it's not about what you eat - it's what you don't eat! If you aren't eating enough food your metabolism shuts down and you store food. For like 30 years I would be lucky to eat one meal a day - I just didn't like food and never made time for it - hence screwing my whole system up. The times when I lost the most weight - I'm taking well over 100lbs - was when I grazed on high fiber healthy foods - such as fruits and vegetables. I also had to work out like 5 hours a day at the gym doing aerobics & resistance machines, I walked and took karate. One thing that helps is to simply get up off your ass every time you think something needs to be done - get up and do it - at least you get moving and chores get done! You need a lot of stamina to keep up the lifestyle required to loose the weight when you are insuline resistant. Things such as depression and stress make this doubly hard! Those things must be addressed in order to make things work as well!

I was once very over my healthy limit... I am now a metal chested chizz-led dude... all because of running, working out (I would name the dvd set, but cant dew to forum rules), and diet... google search reviews for dvd workouts, and you will find a "real" one. Note- the ones that work are HARD!

Rice, veg, fruit, white meat... a healthy amount every day. easy.

Secrets I dont tell many people;

Wii fit... but more important than that- Dance Dance Revolution =^_^= Woo!

I flux honestly. Gained like 50lbs in the last year for no apparent reason, come to find I'm in perimenopause, and i was eating wheat.. my body hats wheat.

I'm with the Chiseled dude above me's advice.
Whole grains, natural wild and unprocessed rice, fruit, and lotsa veggies!! I don't eat meat, but I do toss eggs into the mix.

Wii fit rocks, haven't got the Dance dance revolution... ( maybe i will now)
I also do tae bo and yoga.. all these things I find help burn away fat and build lean muscle.

Away with all this extra bulk!~
