For some of you that are trying to lose weight what has worked for you? I was recently pregnant and things didnt work out and we lost the baby. So I have been out of the gym for a while and need to lose the little weight I did put on. I’ve ben running and all but seems this little pudge I have wont go away! Any one have suggestions…thanks 🙂

I’m so sorry to hear about your loss Have you considered starting some classes as well as going to the gym? I find that, since the gym is so ‘weight-loss’ and ‘improve your health’ centric, you tend to concentrate too much on how quickly the pudge is shifting. If you start a new class, there are other things to concentrate on (learning a new skill, meeting new people, perhaps competitions and gradings) and the weight loss is a happy side-effect rather than the sole goal.

@clumsylawyer: Thanks it was pretty rough the first couple days, but everythng happens for a reason. And everything worked out in the end. But I’ll try the classes. I’m stationed in korea so we only have a few choices for classes not like the states 🙁 we have spin and zumba. I try the spin every once in a while. Hopefully we can get some more classes going here 🙂

I’m really sorry to hear about your loss. If you’re not incorporating weights into your routine, you definitely should. There are so many videos to teach you different exercises. A mix of cardio and weight training will definitely get you the results you want. Also, food food food. Who knows which part is harder?!

Sorry for your loss. I recomend weights as well and strength training which you can do at home, there are videos on you tube. I got a routine from a cheap book. You could always do extra walking/running too.

Sorry to hear about the loss hon. I had a miscarriage back in december of 2010, so if you need to talk, I’m just a PM away.
I can’t stand running these days. My knees are awful and while I have a knee brace that I wear, I just lost my passion for it. I have a cardio circuit that I found on Pinterest that I swear by and I LOVE it! I highly recommend it.
It kicks your arse.
I’ll then do a lower body circuit

followed by abs
or on my upper body days I do this circuit (one per day)
and abs. Make sure you do cardio before each workout, and do some stretching afterward. A little bit of yoga does the body and mind good 🙂
Also, eating a banana after exercising helps lessen the lactic acid. Good luck babe!
