Thanks for sharing your experience. I think I need to do more strength training and less cardio. I am going to mix it up more this week and see what happens.

I enjoy doing light athletic events but really haven't seen much progress in weight loss area. After reading, I see the importance of controlling nutritional intake and strength training.

Until I ran across this group, I'd completed forgotten what worked for me a few years back.

I was to have a surgery and needed to lose a few pounds before the surgery for peace of mind (had a bad experience with anesthesia many years prior to this). I worked out with a friend who is a fitness trainer. I didn't understand why she had me do this routine but I trusted her.

Nutrition: 1400 calorie diet

Week 1
15min light cardio - exercise bike (5 days)

Week 2
3 days - 5 min light cardio and 15-20 min strength training - 5 min cardio
2 days - 15-30 min cardio

Week 3 and 4 increased strength training but cardio stayed the same

I never did more than 30 min cardio and I faithfull controlled by intake.
Within 6 weeks I was down 15 pounds.

I have a lot of weight to lose but I haven't been doing any strength training - just mega cardio. Going to revise my routine and see what happens!
