Question: I went to the doctor today and before my check-up, the nurse did standard nurse stuff, like temperature, and BP... and then she had me step on a scale. I haven't weighed myself in 16 months, because I can see myself growing bigger and I'm scared of the number. Initial plan: step on scale and close eyes. Actual happenings: step on scale, stare at number, feel really sick to my stomach. So I want to lose 10 or so pounds a month for the next year or so (is that a reasonable amount or is that too much?) What are some good general weight loss tips? &yes, I know it's more about being healthy than about size, but I don't think it's healthy for a 19 year old girl to weigh as much as I do in any scenario(:

When you are losing weight, you should exercise and diet together. If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without exercising, you will become flabby and will have excess skin. For diet, go wheat free. No pasta, pizza, bread and so on. And no food after 7 p.m. People achieve marvellous results with it. Depending on your initial weight, you can drop upwards from 20 pounds a month. If you don't eat wheat then you don't eat all those sticky, fatty goey cakes, you don't eat junk food, and you don't eat biscuits. But your diet is still balanced. It costs nothing, and you do not have to calculate points or to buy special meals or plans. For exercising, start with walking, and then switch to running/jogging. Running is the most efficient and calorie-burn exercise ever. If you are overweight a lot, walk first or you may have health complications (heart attack, disjointed bones and so on). Weight lifting is a good means to target your problem areas for men and women. It's not necessarily to become a bodybuilder or even join a gym - a couple of dumbbells will help you to target your problem areas (stomach, butt, legs, arms, chest).

Short of surgery, there is only one way to lose weight: You have to burn more calories than you take in. That's what every diet plan tries to get you to do, one way or another. Everything else (pills, potions, lotions, etc.) is just hype to separate you from your money. For what it's worth, my wife has found Weight Watchers to be effective in losing and maintaining weight. Their program essentially helps you eat healthy while keeping calories burned more than calories eaten. On the other hand, I've lost and maintained my weight on my own, with no help from any plan.

Make sure you excersize, usually small meals whenever you feel hungry, you can make your mind control your cravings, and hpefully you aren't eating a lot cause if stress., hat is never good. So isn't bordism either. Focus on your end result and try not to get discurraged because of the such sudden news you hate right now!! Goodluck, I know you can do it! Expecially with this kind of motivation you have right now also! !

i advise you to drink green tea 1-3 glasses per day green tea speeds up your metabolism drink lots and lots of water 8 glasses each day. do not snack do not drink soda go on the half off diet only eat half of what you would usually eat and give or throw the rest away if you are really hungry and you've had all your daily meals snack on fruits ( oranges, apples, bananas ) exercise more try and run for at least 30 minutes a day get more active get more sleep it prepares your body stretch, yes it works and it doesn't just help you lose weight it helps with you're growing to make you a little taller count your calories try to stay under the amount of 1300 calories per day change you're lifestyle it makes a difference do not eat candy or chips eat more greens or protein bars avoid fast food and cut out fried food when you cook your meal oven cook your food do not fry it chew gum because when you chew gum you do not pick at food for example if theres some chips in you're cupboard you go to them a think good man they look good then you would say no i cant pick at them because i dont wanna throw my gum away do not eat after 6pm because before 6pm you can burn all you're food off and if you eat after six it will lay on you're stomach as you eat. do not eat before you go to sleep drink a glass of water before you go to sleep eat spicy food, if you can because it speeds up you're metabolism do not weigh you're self everyday because it torments you,weight you're self once a week ( every Monday ) good luck! or you can google 3 day american heart association diet and it gives you step by step what to eat and drink. Also it says you can lose 10 lbs. in 3 days!!!
