my measurements are
bust – 36inches
waist – 33inches
hip – 38inches
..or so I think [they always change when I measure] lol
Im a UK size 12
I wanna lose weight EVERYWHERE..or rather, get toned
for me specifically, this includes
-my muffin top [love handles] which I HATE
-my back fat..i don’t know if theres a word for that lol
-my cheek fat – I used to have chubby cheeks as a kid but I just want my cheek bones to stick out a little bit more!
-my upper arm fat
im 16yrs old
I don’t count calories because im really not interested in this approach!
my everyday or rather monday-fiday diet consists of:
-2 slices of bread in the morning with some kind of spread [depends on what we have at home!] – I never have time to make anything proper for breakfast, and I’ve tried getting up earlier but I just cba!
-a tuna sandwhich at lunch..or sometimes nothing at all
-rice and curry when I get home around 5pmish, or sometimes pasta..but this is the time in which I have a proper meal
-something light around an hour before I go sleep like tea and bread
I rarely ever have fried/junk/enjoyable food lol and I drink a hell of a lot of water! And I can’t take the rice and curry out of my diet completely because..well it’s just not possible! But I can limit the number of times I have it per week if anyone thinks I should!
Also, going to the gym, consulting a dietician/doctor of any kind, or just talking to anyone about my weight loss attempt is also not possible because im not comfortable with people knowing my insecurities..unless theyre on the internet and I don’t know them lol
so if you could be so kind as to help me, what I wanna know is:
1.is this aerobics video effective (with my diet) in weight loss?
2.if the video is effective, then how many times would I need to do it PER WEEK for a fast-ish effect?? And how soon can I expect to see it taking effect??
3.Any other tips??
Thanks in advance!
I was just wondering, given my circumstances and age, if I were to loss a great amount of weight if i am likely to have left over baggy skin?
I am only 23
I was on the varsity swim team for 4 years, so I have some muscle tone under all this fat
I used to weigh around 175, I now weigh about 215
I recently had a child (10 months ago)
My stomach and arms are now flabby and appear to hang (I’m assuming because if the weight put on them)
I plan on going into a strict routine of diet and exercise.
My goal is to loose at least 30 pounds, I am just worried that my skin will look horrible, but I think that I’m young enough that it should go back for the most part.
I’ve never had to loose weight before so I don’t know what it will do to my body (besides get smaller, duh)
Any tips or suggestions as well?
Actually I am quite smart and graduated at the top of my class. I had originally written a different sentence, and when i changed it, forgot to change the word ‘loose’ to ‘lose’. So shoot me, you people need to get a life. And I am not obese, I am not one of those people with front butts walking down the road. I was on several sports teams, and worked as a lifeguard for 5 years. Because of my new child, and the stress of going to college, and working a full time job, has left me no time to stay in shape. Now that I want to better myself, and am asking for a little advice, people like you that have no life of your own, think that you have to be funny. Get real, go make real friends that will listen to your stupid and immature jokes, instead of insulting people you don’t even know on yahoo answers.
okay so im 5’0” and i weight 110-115 pounds. my problem areas for fat are mainly my tummy, hips, and inner thighs. i know i cant “target” those areas, but what are good diets that will help me reach my weight loss goal? i work out 4 times a week, sometime just 3 or 2, but if i follow my schedual its 4 times.
basically i just need tips on good eating habits that will help me lose weight, and not like extreme ‘no eating’ diets.
just a couple detailss: im just 15 (a freshman in highschool), i bring a salad to lunch every day, and by working out 4 times a week i mean 2 intense competitive soccer practices for 1.5 hours each anddd i go to the gym for two hours twice a week.
Hey, I have a few questions about dieting & weight loss……. Well first off I’m 20 yrs. old & weigh 160 lbs. I’m only 5’0……Anyway, I know I’m over weight & I really want to lose weight because I would like to be healthy & feel better about myself. I would like to be able to wear a swim suit when summer rolls around again & I haven’t wore one since I was 11) I’m also tired of people telling me I’m fat or asking if I’m pregnant. I never had good self esteem so I didn’t really care in the past if I gained a few lbs. & now I’m suffering because of it. But I want to get in better shape now before it gets to late…. I already found out I’m at high risk of * Hypertension, Dyslipidemia, Type 2 diabetes, Coronary heart disease
Stroke, Gallbladder disease, Osteoarthritis, Sleep apnea, Endometrial, breast, and colon cancer. So my being lazy & not caring is finally catching up to me.
So my questions are…
1. How can I keep up a routine of exercising ?
2. I have a treadmill, I’ve only used it a few times because I heard it doesn’t do anything but were out your joint & you have to basically kill yourself for results. Can you tell me how I should use it to see results, like how many miles, how long, how many days a week?
3. I can’t really afford those ads on t/v that send you healthy meals… what should I look for at the grocery store thats healthy?
I know pills don’t work, because I tried some that were highly recommended (stupid I know ) & they made me feel like I was going to pass out & I didn’t lose weight. I just need some tips for healthy diet & exercise
I am eating so gain weight as well but I am sooo close to what I need but to be sure I’d love any tricks or tips for adding weight… such as put roll of quarters in pocket. Ideas on heavy but small objects.
Just for background…. I am going in for a consultation for weight loss surgery but have recently lost 30 lbs which has made me slightly too light to qualify…. all I have to do it weigh in once at first appointment at a high enough weight so simply adding some weight without eating it would be great cuz then I just have to lose that fat as well later.
hi all, 34 weeks pregnant and feel huge. have gained 36lbs so far and worried bout post pregnancy weight loss. i have never been the size im now and i know its all for a good cause and i cant wait for my little girls arrival. i just really wanna b a sexy mom… i have felt so down and out for the last while that i just wanna get my zest for life back and be able to move around like i used to. funny how i thght i was fat before getting pregnant, now looking back i actually think i was pretty! any one else feel like this, and for sure tips to loose weight safely afterwards?
i am 17, i want to lose some weight in my lower body (legs and butt) and chest etc… im not fat, i just have abit of body fat on me. how long would it take to see results if i did treadmill every second day (8-12km 2% incline) (20 mins which burns 400-500 calories every session on the treadmill) and i eat pretty balanced diet. i dont eat sweets or nothing like that.
i play tennis 3 times per week and soccer once a week, as well as school sports, pretty active. any other tips with related topics??
i do weights 3 times a week, pretty light though. 10kg dumbell and 20kg bench (with the 2 dumbbells)
remember im only 17 and i cant do everything that adults do!
also what is the best way to burn stored fat???
I am 5’2″ and weigh about 150. according to the bmi calculator, I am overweight, but I do have size 34D breasts and according to my boyfriend, have a very nicce booty. lol. but I have some celulite on my legs, and some unwanted fat on my stomach and legs/theighs. Though working out I was able to drop about ten pounds, in the summer but it has come back. I tried weight loss pills to help, but those shrunk my boobs No good right?! haha. But anyways, I am looking for some good exersize tips to really tone my legs and flatten my stomach without shrinking the goood parts of my body! Thanks!
How many inches is one pound of fat?
I am 13 years old, 5 foot 1 3/4 inches tall, weigh 137 lbs. My waist is 29 inches, hips 34 inches. I would like to know how many pounds overweight I am. I’m not super fat, I just wanna get rid of my muffin top. I’m also JUST in the group of an unhealthy BMI- a BMI of 25.1. I’ve started to TRY to exercise more (90 minutes of Bikram Yoga once weekly, Kickboxing Tuesday and Thursday). If I can I go to the gym once or twice, I will, jogging 45 minutes at 5.0 with an incline of 3.0. I try to jump rope 30 minutes a day when not going to the gym, however it usually comes out to 15 minutes. Not ideal.
I’m attempting to eat right, aiming for 1200-1400 calories a day, however I usually consume about 1400-1800 daily. I eat a big breakfast: A vanilla yogurt with cheerios and some strawberries inside. If I can remember, I’ll have a glass of warm water and lemon juice. I think it’s the snacks that get to me. I don’t really like potato chips and soda, but crackers and carbohydrates. A usual lunch I make is: One ounce of snack stuff (pita chips, popcorn, organic cheese puffs), a cup of pasta (whole wheat if available) with olive oil and parmesan cheese. A power bar. 1/2 cup of fruit of some sort. Some other snack-type thing. MAYBE something sweet. I usually drink about 4 cups of water daily, trying to drink 8. At dinner I usually have something like chicken with rice. But I think I eat to much then. I don’t usually have dessert.
I want to be able to be (more) confident in my body, not dread pool parties and swim class. And, I was recently cast as Adelaide from Guys and Dolls in a musical. That means skimpy costumes. Lots of leg. Whoopee. The show starts on May 24. Do you think I can get skinnier by then?
Any tips, tricks…?
And I’m not “obsessed” with a model image, celeb body, being super skinny. It’s not me. And I will be seeking my doctor’s opinion in about a month.
• How overweight am I?
• How to make the weight loss easier?
• How many inches is one pound?
• How to track my weight loss without a scale? Ours just broke, but I can use the one at the gym.
So I’m 15, 5’11” and 264 lbs.
So a while back I got the Wii gaming system, a nice change from my PS3. I started having fun with the Wii Fit yoga and other exercises. But I am overweight and wanted to get serious, so I bought the Wii Active.
Now the Wii active was nice, so I went on a little diet to help with weight loss.
I ate low carb and mild protein foods. I lost 20 pounds in a little over a week, I thought it was amazing and I had so much confidence.
Then I got a little to cocky and stopped with the exercise and diet. I eventually gained the weight back, which made me feel worthless. So tonight, I did the Wii Active cardio workout for an hour. I was drenched and tired and genuinely felt like I busted my ass trying. I work out like this every two days.
So my question is, am I doing okay so far? If you have any tips or suggestions on something I could do different or improve on, let me know please.
I’m trying to lose at least 30 lbs before school starts in late August, because I want to be more outgoing and confident in myself with other people. Plus, it’s unattractive and I am a very handsome person.
Also, I’m going to a childrens weight doctor tomorrow. The problem is, I used to weigh almost 300 lbs. Then I got taller during puberty, ate correctly and lost the weight with no exercise.
Now I have quite a bit of floppy skin that is unattractive, and some of it doesn’t contain fat.
So I’m sure what all of this excess skin makes me weigh more.
Anyway, thanks for your time,
Weight loss – Green tea+hot yoga+Pilates+salad. Anyone tried combining these before? any results? thanks!?
Okay so i’ve been doing Hot yoga for an avg or 3 days per week, as well as pilates for about ..3 times a week also…
My eating habits haven’t exactly been the best *shame shame* and I understand this might be why I’m stuck. (not literally, haha)
I know that healthy weight loss is about 2-3 lbs per week, or 8-10 per month (I’m in NO rush to fit into a certain dress in a month..at all – I just want to be healthy)
I’ve read some benefits of green tea and I liked them! Now I’m really looking to incorporating green tea into my everyday life.
Hot yoga..is addicting, and has many benefits, as well as pilates – aside from the toning and exercise, a lot of my neck and lower back pain has nearly disappeared.
Salad…salad salad! I NEED to start eating more veggies (salad) and cut back on the carbs (rice, potatoes,etc – I KNOW THIS)
so with all of that already stated, my question is if anyone has tried combining yoga/hot yoga/pilates with green tea and balanced dieting? and what were your results?
I’m 5’3″ and currently weigh 155
I don’t look FAT. but I’m not where I want to be at all… and i think it’s a good time to make healthy adjustments to my lifestyle.
also, are there any “limits” as to how much green tea I can drink? hot yoga?
I’m not trying to go crazy with exercising either -
once again….I want (need) a healthy lifewstyle and I have patience to achieve this.
I’ll gladly appreciate any stories, tips, critiques, whatever it is.

I have tried everything. Honestly. This has been going on for about 3 years now. I’m 18 years old, about to be 19. I 6 ft and almost 200 pounds. I have been through a very stressful and hurtful time for the passed year and a half. I can’t believe I made it out alive… Anyways, I used to be beautiful. I used to be thin for my height. And healthy. I was a size 8. And I was completely satisfied. I hate soda. I don’t like junk food. I ALWAYS drink water. I drink milk in the morning. I drink organic green tea without sugar or milk. And then things kinda went down hill. But, I didn’t change my eating or anything. I stayed the same. But then, I gained a lot of weight and I have no idea where it came from. Now, I’m a size 14. Obesity runs in my family. Especially my Dad’s side. Everyone is either fat or REALLY fat. My mom’s side is kinda average. Some are hefty others are fine. I do not want to be like them!!!!!!! I used to be so happy and I had a high self esteem. I feel like it could be a medical problem… All I want is to be the weight I used to be. That’s like my main focus now is how fat I am. I cant stand how I look. I cant stand taking pictures. I cant stand looking in the mirror. Yes, it’s that bad. I always workout too! Like, I have P90X that my Dad got me for my birthday cause I wanted it. That’s the only television thing I got. I cant stand watching weight ads on television because I just want to be those people who have this “miracle” weight loss. But, I don’t have the freaking money to pay for that crap. I hardly have enough for college! I do not even have a car yet. Anyone have anything free? Free workouts I can look up… motivational tips… help… advice… please! I can honestly say I’m desperate. I will talk to anyone. Please help me. I want the old me back! So bad! I miss feeling beautiful. I’m too young to go through something like this. Is there anyone out there who went through the same thing and made it out the way you wanted? What did you do? Also, I hardly have money, like I said. So, what are things I could buy that are not too pricey for weight loss. If you read this, thanks for taking the time to read this. Thank you so much. Please help me.
I require as many tips as possible to lose fat fast and get a flat body.
I am 17 years old. I weigh about 92kg (202 lb) and am 185cm (6 feet 1 inch) tall. I have 10 weeks to get lean and thin for this transformation. I am not looking for a WEIGHT loss but rather a FAT loss to alter my appearance in 2 months and a bit ( I don’t care much about my weight but rather how I look). Please help in any way! Thanks!
I am 17 this year, and i have 49.5 kgs. I look very fat compared to how i was a couple of months ago. I was jus 38-40 kgs. I really do not like how i look like anymore. I really need to lose some weight. I’ve stopped drinking all kinda soda’s like coke etc and also i dont eat any kind of junk food anymore. I feel very hungry. Is there anything i could do to stop myself from feeling hungry and any diet tips to lose weight really fast. I cannot start exercising until June and i want to lose weight naturslly so pls dn recommend any weight loss pills or so. Is there anything any of you have done and really worked? Any tips? Please help and please please dont be rude. Thanks so much in advane
Ok, my plan is as follows…
DIET – I intend to follow the slimming world diet on all green days as I’m a veggie.
EXERCISE – 30 mins yoga each morning and 20 mins on an exercise bike with the arm workout bit (not sure what its called) so it’s a full body workout – and I’m going to up it 2 mins every week.
I currently weigh 230lbs (I’m looking to get to 185 which for my build and height is the higher end of normal, but it’s my first goal!!) and I’ve always been told fatter people lose weight quicker – and it’s unlikely to be water weight as I drink 2 – 2.5 litres a day already!!
Can anyone help with some great motivation tips? (I always end up giving up on myself!)
And can anyone estimate my weight loss? (such as how much I can lose per week, whether it’ll be quicker to start as I’m fat, how much I should aim to have lost by 31st December – end of the year sounds like a plan lol!)
Thanks for your help and info, even if you can only answer a query or 2 not all of them it’s all really helpful :]
Thanks guys and gals
I think I am very large for my height. Everyone keeps telling me I’m “thin” (HAHA, what a joke) but when I look in the mirror, I just see rolls of fat bulging all over the place. Weight loss tips would be appreciated. I can’t look pretty when I’m so big.
