How have YOU lost weight?
Topic: How have YOU lost weight?
October 18, 2019 / By Kierra Question:
I've been exercising (i.e. treadmill, crunches, a bit of weights) and I've been trying to eat better but so far I see no change on the scale when I weight myself. I'm only wanting to loose 8 lbs, and so far, it's been tough. Is there an easier way to do this, maybe a different exercise routine that I don't know about, one that's more effective? How have you guys gotten rid of a few unwanted pounds? Thanks in advance :)

I've lost weight on several different occasions.
The first time I lost weight (where I was originally 62kg and about 168cm tall) I started skipping everyday for about 15-20 minutes and cut down on a lot of junk food. I was 14 or 15 at the time (I'm 17 now) and I toned up. I'm not sure how much weight I lost, but I know that, according to my mum, my arms, legs and bum slimmed down.
The second time I lost weight I was on the Wii everyday burning about 300 calories a day doing numerous different exercises (including running, step ups, more running etc). I lost about 2kg.
The third time I lost weight I was on holiday and wasn't actually intentionally losing weight but rather trying not to PUT ON weight (because of all the food I was eating throughout the day), so I went to the gym for about an hour - 2 hours everyday and burnt about 300-500 each day. I also was walking around and climbing stairs throughout the day so I lost a lot of weight (about 3 kg in 16 days, maybe more) keeping in mind I was still eating heaps of food.
I was also eating a gallon of water each night... Heaps!
The fourth time I lost weight I was at home after the holiday and continued to exercise but not as much and got down to 55 from 57.
Now I'm back at 59 and trying to lose weight again. So I'm doing 20-30 minute workouts and cutting out all bad fats, bad carbs and bad sugars. Hope this goes well.
I'd say you should do the same. Cut out all bad fats, bad carbs and bad sugars. Also do exercises that really get your heart rate up for at least 20 minutes. Try to walk everywhere and drink plenty of green tea and water.

How have I lost weight?
Well first off, Im 14, obese (5"2, 182) I got sick of the way I looked and how I felt, so im changing it.
I have started exercising more. I workout after every meal and snack and usually get around 45-1hr of cardio and somedays just 30 minutes.
I started shopping on my own and picked out some veggies and fruits for real cheap because I had coupons and it was a sale on them already :)
I only have 1 cheat day where I eat as if I am not on a diet BUT i still get in my cardio because 1 day missed is very bad to me.
I also do ab workouts 3x a week, and get pretty sore but that only means im doing them right :)
I hardly ever eat out anymore unless they have a healthy menu, so honestly unless they have a small salad(Wendy's salads are a no no, they have over 500 calories in them) but If I go out I usually get a salad and I have lost about 6-7lbs in about 2 weeks.
But I also eat in moderation, meaing if I have a craving I take a little bit and workout right after, its like punishment, because 1. Its not my cheat day and 2. I shouldnt be eating it.
I also watch portion size and drink water with every meal and snack.
I drink about 4-5 on a normal day on a good day I drink 8 glasses.
I try walking 30 minutes everyday.
I get small plates so I dont overload it with food. Which, with a small, plate I dont eat much.
So basically I made a change in my life and im sticking with it, I may have a day or two where I bindge but thats very rare.

This past summer I had gained so much weight and I was sick of it. I am a teenager and I just don't really want to put myself on that path and I decided I wanted to get off as soon as possible. I had tried in the past but I guess it wasn't a reality check yet so it certainly is something that I had to be motivated to do.
I decided to become a vegetarian for health purposes and other reasons and I lost a few pounds. It motivated me to eat more fruits and vegetables than just junk food all of the time. I also tried new exercises and varied them so that I wouldn't get bored. In total I've lost about 14 pounds since my highest weight. I've still got a lot to go though.
I do think varying your exercises helps you lose weight somewhat faster because your body isn't used to them and it stimulates your brain a lot more than just going on the treadmill day after day. So if you can, maybe go get some exercise videos that interest you.

i lost weight for an unexplained reason too and i ate tons i was 55kg and 5'7. i used to get people calling me anorexic ***** and my periods even stopped.
the answer for me was just eat even more, i knew i was already eating all my meals to the point of being absolutely stuffed so i increased my snacks alot and it workedim still quite thin at 63 kg but my periods are back and i look more healthy.
also lack of excercise can actually make you loose weight becuase your muscles starts to waste away.
