Fitness/Diet » I've gained questionable weight by: HotCakeAt43 .:. Sun, 21 Apr, 2013 - 07:27:42:pm GMT

So over the past 19 months, I have gone from a size 8 to a size 12. I don't eat a lot, i very rarely eat snacks but it just seem to be getting curvy (or should i say plumpy?). I know it is probably down to me passing my driving test and hardly walking etc drive, drive, drive and sitting on my butts

I look at girls who are a size 8 and it really gets me down. I have curves and can't wear what I want (well I don't feel comfortable).

Can anyone give me any tips on what to do lose this extra 12 kgs?

There's no guarantee as to how fast you'll be able to lose the weight but I can tell you, from personal experience, weight is a lot easier to gain then to lose. First of all, to avoid binging, it would be helpful if you weren't "starving" yourself during the week. I use to follow a similar diet - eating super healthy during the week and going wild and gaining weight over the weekend. I decided that I could allow myself small treats a few times a week and not binge on the weekend. For example, I used to solely drink soda on the weekend and now I drink a lot more water and less soda.


You need to not feel guilty and starve yourself but just move on and get back on track. Try drinking a glass of water before you eat to curb hunger. You could also have several small meals instead of 3 big meals. Just see what works best for you and definitely do cardio to burn fat. Sparkpeople.com is helpful too.


Hope this helped and don't stress over it!

Well, first change your lifestyle. Then find some good diet plan. Reduce your food portions. And find a great motivation for all this, setup a goal - I want to lose my extra wait and stick with it.

Something that has always kept me fit and that has always kept me away from gaining weight is not to snack! i love chocolate and other sweet stuff, but i try to always eat it pretty much straight after i have had one of meals instead of waiting an hour to eat it. So. DON'T SNACK. And also, remember, you are beautiful just the way you are! smile

Well, first of all you don't seem like you'e in that much trouble with your weight. If you have a calorie deficit and you're still gaining, then you may want to check with your doctor to ensure that you dont have a hormonal issue or are preggers!

Beyond that, its all about the calorie deficit and exercise. Remember that strength training can raise your metabolism longer than cardio, so its great for fat burning. If you're into fatburners and supplements then CLA, green tea and caffeine are some nice, proven ingredients. A couple of friends I have who seem to try EVERY supplement out there always try to get me to try Alli, Liporidex or Slimquick. I never have because I'm happy where I am and tried some hydroxycut years ago. That stuff made me feel really whack. I've heard that Alli makes you poo gross when you eat fatty meals - not really my cup of tea.

Either way, stick with it and you'll be okay
