Well what kind of workouts are you doing? Cardio, strength training, hiit?

If you feel that you need to drop weight, focus on cardio and cutting calories. Throw in some strength training 2 to 3 times a week.


If you feel that you don’t need to drop weight and you just need to tone, do the top two minus the calorie cutting. 

A lot of people have had success with the 30 day shred. Maybe try that out.

I find MFP kind of stressful and annoying, especially if you exercise.  It’s good for realizing how much you’re eating (esp if you’re eating a bunch of overprocessed junk) but not so much for planning what to eat, IMO. 

You’re already doing a lot of cardio, so try some strength training.  Getting the silhouette you want means building muscle.

For legs, try ballet barre.  There are tons of classes and videos, and it is a mean workout that doesn’t suck up a ton of time.  Also swimming is a great all purpose cardio and strength workout.

@June14Bride:  I agree with the PP. Putting some sort of strength training will really bring some definition. 

I personally LOVE MFP, I have used it for 11 months and have lost 60 lbs and went from a size 20 to a size 12 and am still loosing. Don’t forget that you can eat back some of your exercise calories.

I will say this in every Weight Loss Thread… but Weight Watchers! It works for everyone, no matter how much weight you want to lose, and it’s easy to keep up. Over the coures of a year you could easily lose 50 lbs if you wanted to, and more importantly, do it in a slow, sustainable way so you wouldn’t do the whole “lose 20, put on 30” thing that a lot of people do on fad diets…

My story: I lost 63 lbs on WW and have been keeping it off for a year and a half!

@laughs:  I’ll second Weight Watchers!  DH and I are both doing it now and I’ve lost 27 lbs so far and he’s lost almost 25 lbs.

I do My Fitness Pal, and I have lost 25 pounds. I do exercise though. I walk every day. I would also suggest Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred, which you can find for free on You Tube (the 2nd part is free elsewhere online). I lost inches with her video.

There are plenty of exercise routines online as well, but I would find ones that focus on strength training and cardio.
