@BeeG35:  Walking. I started with one mile a day and worked my way up to 3. But I was also practically sedentary before that so results may vary 🙂

A little fat on your salad can actually help you digest it, as long as you only put a little bit. It’s hard to tell you what changes to make without actually knowing what your diet looks like

Don’t get frustrated! Keep doing what you’re doing and perhaps start to vary your diet, while keeping the calories in the right range for you. Likewise, make sure your aerobic exercise if varied and think about adding some weight training to mix things up. Weight loss happens for me in spurts. I’ll be doing the same things, eating the same foods, and be at the same weight for months… and then all of a sudden BAM five pounds mysteriously gone. 

Also, don’t focus on the weight. Focus on what you look like and how you feel. You’ll notice inches going away, even if the scale reads the same. Best of luck!

Have you been losing inches? That can help.

I wouldn’t have dry salads. That’s so boring lol. Make a dressing with a little olive oil, lemon juice, and a bit of freshly crushed garlic and it makes it a lot better (and still low calorie).

I think making small changes is great (I am doing a similar thing), but it does take time to see results.

Make sure you’re still eating enough!!!
And definitely don’t be scared to lift some weights. Doing so really helps to tone and speed up fat loss in my experience (but only if you’re also maintaining a healthy diet)

@futuremrs1986:  Ditto, I never really saw results with working out, no matter how much aerobics/cardio I did, until I started using weights, and then the results came fairly quickly!

@BeeG35:  3 parts oil, one part lemon juice (put the lemon juice in first, then make the oil about 3x taller). I crush garlic by cutting a clove up teeny tiny and then putting some salt on it and using a butter knife to mush it into a paste (my mom taught me this when I was young).

Or just squeeze a bit of lemon onto the salad and drizzle a spoonful of oil onto it. The easier way hehe.

Don’t be so hard on yourself.. you’ll get the hang of cooking 😉

Sleep is also super important in weight loss… not enough sleep= increased cortisol (the hormone that likes to store belly fat). I have taken a couple of courses, but am by no means anything close to a dietician, and I know people have differeing opinions on this, but generally any diet that makes you cut out an entire food group/ nutrient is not good (unless you have a legit medical allergy/ intolerance to gertain things liek dairy and gluten). So when you say you cut out carbs, I hope you’re only referring to refined carbs, and not all carbs.. whole grains are your friend!

Dry salad?

You need to learn how to cook real food. Chicken, steak, turkey, and a vegetable, fruits for snacks (none of that juice shit). A colorful salad with chicken and a vinaigrette dressing is great. There are a million recipes out there for good, real, healthy foods if you look for them. 

What are you doing as far as exercise? I highly recommend checking out Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred or Ripped in 30. She has a meal plan that you can follow, too.
