Weight loss

20 posts in this topic

It took me 2 years to do it but I lost over 6 1/2 stone. Really proud of myself but struggling to tone my legs up. Any ideas?

My journey

started out thin then gained weight through 2 horrendous pregnancies, and eating crap.

Walking will help, particularly if your pushing a push chair!

Dan I walk in excess of 3miles a day. Often in the region of 6 miles and I am pushing the pram too!

I just cant seem to shift the weight off in the right places and have no clue on what I can do to tone up my legs.

I am unable to go to the gym as I cant afford the membership.

I've just given up my gym membership. It was getting silly expensive and I can do most of the exercises at home.

Walking is a good start for sure! I guess you need to step up the pace a bit or start cycling and running.

Swimming is also good, although with kids, it's more about Monkey Monkey on the side of the pool.... :D

Walk the long way, if there is one, break out into a jog/run to get your heart rate up a bit, all stuff you can do on a normal daily walk.

Food. You must have made some big changes to your intake to get to where you are, but don't rest, keep looking at what you eat and if you can make it healthier +++

Are there any hills you can go and walk up and down?

I can give you an exercise regime if you like - but it'll probably kill you inside two weeks ;)

Wifey does 'Body Combat' type stuff. It certainly helps.

Get one or a few of the DVD's that concentrate on thighs, bums etc and do them when kiddies are in bed.

They are only a few ££ on eBay.

Hope that helps!

Did I ever mention I trained hard enough to get my black belt in karate? ;)

Loved body combat too .... like karate but to music (and no bruises!!!) :)

I know! She shows me some moves (no, not those moves unfortunately) when she returns. Blimey!

Mine is now a 3rd Dan karate girlie, trains any to brown belt and you really do want someone to be that good. At 53 she has the body of a 30 year old and loves to be demanding. Hows that a bad thing?

She is a real life warrior princess, it's brilliant.... I have said enough.

Anyway, back to feeling a bit better about yourself and increasing your self-confidence, PP.

Although you were very rotund in the first picture, your face looked a lot happier and more inviting. I get all the crazy hair/makeup and piercings is a lifestyle choice, but are you just doing it to appear different because you feel different and are in fact highlighting your differences to the outside world when you want to be accepted?

Take the piercings out, adopt the less-is-more approach to natural-looking makeup and rediscover your natural hair colour. You don't need to over-compensate by a look-at-me appearance, if you have low self-confidence then the sort of attention you have been getting isn't helpful.

Maybe your hubby needs to see the real you again, physically and emotionally.

Wow, I didn't know eldavo had such wise words in him... :grin:

Chri5 - there can be nothing bad in having a fit wife who can defend herself. I was just playing the ancient joke that you wouldn't want her to be able to give you a battering... a mate was in that situation once with a kick boxer, and he didn't (always) enjoy it. Mind you, she was fúcking mental too. :P
