I actually had to increase my workout time also. However, I was exercising for about two hours 4 days a week. I have included at least two extra hours in my routine. I will be changing that up also though. I do classes at a gym, and use weights in those classes, so I will incorporate more cardio instead of a class or two. It's always great to get suggestions, I think u must find what works for you. I agree with the other post, if u utilize the calorie tracker and the fitness tracker youbwill figure out much quicker what u should do...if u need more exercise or sometimes more calories...or less of each. Hope this helps.

you might consider using the diet and exercise trackers on the site to figure out if you are burning more than you consume. in theory, if you create a calorie deficit, you will lose. for me, it didn't work that way until i started taking metformin. i could cut calories and exercise until the cows came home and i didn't see a change on the scale. if it continues to be an issue, perhaps you could take your food and exercise log and consult a doctor or dietician or trainer and see if they have any advice.

if you have been exercising for only 30 and you are no longer losing like you used to, then yes, you might need to change things up or add a little time. Otherwise if exercise isn't a norm, you need to re-evaluate what you are eating. Remember 1-2 pounds a week is what you should shoot for, no more than that otherwise you can easily rebound.

umm, i have noticed losing weight, even in small amounts pretty slowly is harder in my late 20s than as a teen with pcos.

so i was wondering if its the norm for me to need extra exercise to see results.

i can get results (thank god) but for me it won't show up with 30 minutes of exercise. i need at least 45-60 min of exercise 4-5 days a week for it to show up.

is this norm?
