Hi bee’s.. So this weight for some reason is just PILING on.. I am eating like a hog and working out like a hog to try to compensate for it! I have no idea how to make this weight drop the correct way.. I recently lost 30 lbs with in the last year.. and 15 of them are right back on… If anyone out there has any safe diet advice.. Or are on a meal / workout plan.. Please share! I’m looking for something that is safe, and that i can fit into my sched. I already work out about 4-5 days a week after work.. Anything from kickboxing class, or Step (which i suck at) or just doing the eliptical or treadmills. I lift free weights adn do ALOT of sit ups… So any advice on how to kick it up a ntch without killing myself would be appreciated!

I love Pilates, it’s great for toning and not too high intensity.
As for diet, I don’t really follow one, just eating better foods and eating less in my portions. You can do it, you have a lot of time!

It sounds like you’re doing the right thing in terms of the gym, so my bet would be it’s your diet that is the culprit.
Try shopping only in the outside aisles of the grocery store…stay out of the middle where the snacks and junk food are. I find that helps A TON for me. If bad food isn’t in the house I can’t eat it! Also, try tracking what you eat on a daily basis…it’s surprising how a few extra calories here and there add up! I use fatsecret.com, but I know a lot of bees also use myfitnesspal.

I second MyFitnessPal – you input your current stats, tell them how much you want to lose per week/how much you’re going to exercise and they tell you how many calories to eat. They also let you track fat, carbs, sugar, etc. so you can know what else you’re putting in besides calories. Just don’t forget to eat back your exercise calories – that may be why you’re not losing. If you don’t eat enough for your body to operate properly, you’re just going to confuse it.
