How can I lose weight fast and effectively, without getting discouraged so easily?

I need to get my motivation up instead of letting my depression get to me. I have only gained 6 pounds in 2 months but I feel it. I need to lose about 30 lbs to be at normal weight. Please help me. I do drink lots water, and I move around all day, up and stairs, running after kids, I dont know what the deal is. Please any suggestions. Thank you.

    You said it. Motivation is the key. You have to want to work out and you have to want to lose the weight in order to do it. Unfortunately, there is really no cheap and safe way of shedding thirty pounds in one week. There is however, a program I have called “Four Weeks to a Flat Belly”. I can’t put it in here, but if you want it you can e-mail me at [email protected]. It’s a great program that includes your exercise and eating routine.

    First you have to look at what you are eating and drinking. Here are a few tips:
    1) If you are drinking full calorie soda switch to diet. I know someone who lost 20lbs in time this way.

    2) don’t eat right before you go to bed. Your body is going into shut-down mode so and tends to move the calories into storage aka fat

    3) Watch what you snack on. If you snack on chips or high starch foods try switching to fruits and vegetables instead the don’t pack as much calories and are healthier.

    4) Don’t or cut your meat intake when i became vegetarian the pounds just flew off of me.

    5) try to eat 5 small meals during the course of the day instead of three big ones. it’s easier to digest and makes you feel like you are eating more.

    6) make sure your not taking any medications that could have the side effect of weight gain. if it does at least you know what you are fighting against.

    7) Find an excesses buddy. Studies have shown that if you have someone to work out with you form a symbiotic relation ship that leads to success.

    8) Always choose stairs over the elevator. Creeping in more activities in the day really helps in the long run.

    9) Find your weakness. If you are a sucker for ice cream stop buying it. If the temptation isn’t there you can’t give in.

    10) don’t be a scale bunny. determine your progress by how well you feel not what the number reads. If you making good progress you will feel it in your clothes.

    Do not have crash reduction. Maximum 2.25 -4.5 lbs per month is alright. Do not take any drugs for weight reduction. They are all harmful to the health. Stick on to diet. Exercise: swimming is the best . Or walking at normal speed to a distance of 3 miles per hour for one hour at least 5 days in a week. Avoid fat. sweet, tubers oily and fried food. etc.

    Losing weight is simple in theory: burn more calories than you consume. In practice, however, it tends to be a bit more difficult. In spite of the easy promises of fad diet and exercise programs, the fact remains that quick solutions tend to provide only temporary results.
    Successful weight loss in the long term is a product of a change in lifestyle. If you’re serious about losing weight, you need to make a commitment to nutritional and exercise changes.
    In terms of your diet, you might be best served by consulting a professional if you have the means. Nutritional needs vary from person to person, and the optimal diet for you should be personalized. Talk to your doctor. If professional help isn’t feasible for you, then you may benefit by simply keeping closer track of what you are eating. There are approximately 3500 calories per pound of fat. So you have to burn that many calories plus whatever you eat to lose one pound. The first step in figuring out how to set up a do-it-yourself diet is knowing exactly how many calories you’re eating. So start keeping track (and don’t cheat–very few people eat only 1/4 cup of cereal per bowl, and the calories in that handful of chips do need counting).
    Along with dieting, you should really construct an integrated exercise program. Running around after kids is great–but it isn’t something stable where you can track your progress. Furthermore, in order to burn fat calories, you have to sustain your level of activity for at least ten straight minutes (twenty is better). Stop and go activity burns carbohydrates, which your body is just going to replace by causing you to crave sugars. So you need to do something daily (or at least 4-5 times a week) where the focus is sustaining an elevated heartrate for 10-20 minutes (really it should be 20 or more).
    Additionally, a weight-resistance program is essential. Muscle is active tissue, which means that each ounce of muscle on you is your best friend, burning calories while you watch tv, read, or even sleep. Women are often averse to weightlifting, because they fear they will bulk up. This is simply not true. Bulking requires a very concerted effort–especially for women. A simple weight training program will merely tone your body, and it is a great aid in trimming fat. (Once again–if feasible–enlist a professional, such as a personal trainer–it’ll really help).
    Unfortunately, there is no easy solution. If you want to fix this, you have to be willing to change your life. The good news is that it gets easier. Fitness is all about momentum. Once you develop good eating and exercise habits, it will literally be hard to get back out of shape.
    The best advice I can give is this: Start with something–whatever you can manage right now–and commit yourself to making that change permanent. If that means going for a brisk walk for twenty minutes a day and exchanging the cocoa puffs for mini-wheats, just make sure that the change is permanent. Do something that you know you can accomplish, and stick with it. (And when you do screw up, just make sure you get right back on the horse the next day–two days slips into two months more easily than you can imagine). Once you’ve mastered the first step, then you can set a new, slightly more ambitious goal. The key is sustainability.

    good luck!

    also–keep in mind that day to day fluctuations in weight represent changes in water concentration. unless you burned 3500 extra calories (about 6 hours of hard running) yesterday, you didn’t really lose a pound–you’re just thirsty. slow and steady wins the race.

    p.s.s. i’m hesitant to contradict a doctor, but what drsuria says about swimming isn’t always true. swimming produces the least stress on your joints and bones, but studies consistently show that a weight-bearing exercise (running, walking) is the most effective way to burn calories. (but swimming is great–aerobic activity and resistance training all rolled into one!)
