During the warm weather I have been going in my pool pretty much everyday for at least 1 hour. When the weather gets cooler, I'm not sure what I'll do. As for weight loss, I started at 215 lbs. in late April and I have only been able to lose 1 lb. a week. I'm thinking of increasing my calorie consumption from 1100 to 1450 calories a day to 1200 to 1500 calories a day. Perhaps my body isn't getting enough calories with the exercise I've been doing and it's going into "starvation" mode. It's discouraging to read about people losing 2, 3, or 4 lbs. a week when I'm only losing 1 lb. a week. The good thing is that at least I'm losing, not gaining.

walk outside if the weather is nice, or walk on the treadmill if it isn't. i only walk six days a week.

9/6/10 5:37 P

I have been doing weight training 3 times a week for one hour and cardio 3 times a week for at least 45 minutes or more. I started out weighing 215 lbs and now I weigh 212. I have been doing this faithfully with a trainer for 6 weeks and only losing 3 lbs! I am only eating between 1300 and 1600 calories a day. I am getting kind of discouraged. Any one else having this issue???? please help!

I walk. I need to add something else and add it now, but what???? Has to be something I can do at home and that is as cheap as walking is. I'm broke. Can't afford a gym or a class.

I've a feeling in my soul,
And I pray that I'm not wrong,
That the life I have now,
It is only the beginning

It feels like I'm born again
It feels like I'm living
For the very first time
For the very first time
In my life

I am a cyclist. I also do strength training and have just started running. I now live in Germany and the weather does not cooperate lately. Too much rain!

Or bump it up to high impact aerobics. I've started loving jogging in place.

primarily I walk. I wear my pedometer every day and get at least 12,000 steps in. On the weekends I do a 2 hour hike up a mountain near my home. Depending on the time of year I also swim some and occasionally take a yoga class, but I only track my walking.

What this power is I cannot say; all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man is in that state of mind in which he knows exactly what he wants and is fully determined not to quit until he finds it.

What kind of exercise did you do today?

If you don't want to keep starting over, don't give up in the first place.
