    Are you doing a mix of cardio and light weights when you workout? You need to do both.

    Honestly.. Run & speedwalk when your tired. I know so many people that have lost a lot of weight doing so. Go to a local park, get some headphones, and if you do so everyday I bet you will be more slim by the 15th!

    Run. Do it for 45 minutes- an hour is even better. Everybody gets tired- but motivated people that actually want to tone or lose weight push through it. Lazy people stop after 15 minutes. Sounds like you are lazy. Do you wish to continue to be lazy (and fat), or do you want to move into the other group? Its up to you to decide. Good luck.

    The best way is to exercise. And I think you’re doing the right thing, just cutting back on what you eat. I have a suggestion that worked for me. Eat a serving size bowl of cereal, any kind, have lunch with a sandwich, a serving size of chips, and a fruit, apple or banana or orange, I went with apple and banana, and for dinner, repeat if you don’t have a choice, if you’re parents are having dinner, have normal dinner, and eat a regular snack. trust me, it works. I lost six pounds fast. And even if you exercise for only fifteen minutes, do it everyday. Even fifteen minutes counts.

    eat 5 to 6 small meals a day. do the ellipitcal machine at the gym or the stairmaster bring a magazine like people or something. you should do about 30 min of cardio and 30 min of weights 3 to 4 times a week. just stay away from fast food and if you stop drinking ALL soda even diet you will immediately lose 5 pounds!! cause u are cutting out all that sugar intake. Also portion control, if you are going to eat chips just put some one a plate and take those with you to the couch not the whole bag that is when people over indulge. hope this helps. it did for me i lost 25 lbs. now i weigh119

    do sit ups and pushups. trust me it helps. also, have only healthy foods like fruits vegies, protein, ect. You may want to do more excersizing, like 2 or 3 hours a day if you want to lose like 2 pounds a week… When you do those, each day increase it like 30 minutes more so you will keep your weight loss steady. Do not have any pop, chips, or any junkfood. like what i said, have only healthy foods. o ya and water, have like a gallon or more a day trust me you will feel full, and if you are hungry in between meals and dying to have chips, dont… have tons of water instead. have tons of sleep and take your milk and vitamins. ya i am trying to lose weight myself until school starts lol well thats what i am doing to reach my goal. hope that helps!

    Well, it’s true that you should rest when you are tired, but to lose weight (especially in such a short amount of time) you will need to exercise at least 25 – 30 min. a day (in my opinion). To tone the muscles in your legs, running and walking long distances is good. When you walk/run it doesn’t have to be miles and miles to see results, just around the block once or twice or if that is really short, just try walking about a mile every day. You have to remember to be persistent for the results to show. If you would like your arms and back to be more toned/muscular try lifting weights. Always start out with a 3lb. or 5lb. weight if you never experienced lifting before. If you are looking to tone your muscles in your arms, you would start out with a “heavier” amount of weight and less repetitions (how many times you lift). If you want to build muscle in your arms, get a “lighter” weight and do more repetitions. With the weights, there are many things you can do with them and -many- different ways to lift them. There are the correct ways and the most definitely -wrong- ways. Before you start engaging in lifting, make SURE you have either a.) read up on it OR b.) get/or have a “trainer” – (a person who knows what they are doing/talking about) help you.

    Good luck to you! 🙂

    You need to push through your tiredness and work out more than 15 minutes or go over to the weight machine – that will tone you up quick. and you never get bored because you can always switch machines and muscle groups.

    Eating right and excersize. But what’s right for you? You have to decide. 15 minutes a day is fine, as long as 10 of those minutes are not spent stretching. As a matter of fact, stretching shouldn’t even be counted in that time. Each day, do something different. You have cardio work outs and strength training work outs. You can’t do them both daily. You HAVE to spread it out or you will hurt yourself. Try doing cardio three days a week. And the other two days do muscle training. Do them for about 15-30 minutes. The extra two days of the week, spend it doing regular activities that count towards exercise, for example, instead of driving to that place 5 blocks away, walk. Use the stairs instead of elevator.

    Eating: Eating not as much won’t do you any good either. The less you eat, the more your body holds on to the fat. Eventually (and not by august) your body will breakdown that fat for energy. So, here’s a plan. Trick your body. You’ll have to count calories for this one. Start out eating a regular 2000-2200 calorie diet daily for about a week. On the following day, drop 200 calories and do that for about a few days. drop another 100 calories for a nother few days then go back to your regular 2000-2200 calories. WHAT? WHY? Because starting at 2000, you body will only burn 2000 and will get used to just burning 2000. When you drop 200 of those calories your body will STILL burn 2000 when u are only consuming about 1800. It’s burning extra calories! And then it will get used to that, drop another 100 or so and the same thing. When u shoot back up suddenly to 2000 your body will work extra hard to burn that off again. And you start over. Sounds complicated but it works.

    Aching to lose weight and don’t know how to start? I’m here to help. Here are 20 tips to help get you through one of life’s most oft repeated struggles – the Fight Against Fat.

    1. Have you tried to give up sugar and haven’t succeeded? Instead of forbidding yourself certain foods – just eat less of them. If you must have sugar in your tea, cut it down from two spoons to one.

    2. Ever notice how if you eat when you’re ravenous, you tend to overeat? So try eating more regularly, even if it means more frequently. Eat an average of 5 small meals a day, instead of 2 or 3 large ones, where you stuff yourself.

    3. Be conscious about what you eat. Keep a food diary and note down everything you eat. You may be shocked at the results.

    4. Eat or snack only on the dinner table, not on the couch in front of your television. Once you make a policy out of this, you’ll cut down on snacks tremendously. Don’t get too comfortable while eating. It’s always better to eat on the go. Always sit straight on the chair.

    5. Make rules for yourself. If you experience cravings, give yourself ten minutes before you attack the refrigerator. In most cases, the craving would just die down and you’d walk away.

    6. Drink a lot of water. This reduces hunger pangs and gives you more energy.

    7. When you decide to finally attack your weight problem, you want it gone by the weekend. But realise that that is just not a realistic approach. If you want it off permanently, you’ve got to take it slow. It may even take up to a year to get to your desired weight – that’s fine, because you’ve got more of a chance of maintaining it.

    8. Join an aerobics class. It’s more disciplined and it’s always better to work out in a group.

    9. Stay busy. Don’t just sit around wasting time. Chances are your mind will wander to that delicious chocolate cake… Partake in activities that are not conducive to eating. Join a singing class, take up oil painting or gardening – cultivate a hobby.

    10. If you have to snack, try this. Put your hand in the packet of wafers and take out a fistful. Finish off whatever you get your hands on – and that’s it.

    11. Don’t stack up on fattening yummy foods. It’s easiest to control food intake if you just don’t have it around. If you feel like chocolate cake, buy a pastry so it doesn’t hang out in the refrigerator all week till you polish it off. Similarly, don’t keep tubs of ice cream in the freezer. Buy a cup or two and eat it when the mood strikes.

    12. When you reach for the refrigerator, stop and question yourself. Are you just bored or are you really hungry? In most of the cases the answer will be the former.

    13. Stick little post-it notes on the refrigerator saying, Stop! Or Reach for a glass of water.

    14. Buy clothes a size smaller and work towards fitting into them.

    15. Don’t beat yourself up or lose heart just because you’ve slipped up a few times. You need to keep a positive outlook and keep encouraging yourself.

    16. Visualise how you will look without those extra kilograms.

    17. Take up yoga.

    18. Find new and different ways to measure how far you’ve come. Don’t just stick to the weighing scale. Scout around in your cupboard and try on old clothes that are big for you – excellent motivation.

    19. Find a partner to work out with or to support you. Enlist the help of a friend and go for activities that don’t involve snacking. Take up tennis, go cycling… don’t just meet friends over lunch or dinner.

    20. Get motivated. No one is going to lose your weight for you. You’re going to have to do it all by yourself, and if the motivation doesn’t come from within you, no amount of friends and family pushing you to lose weight is going to help.

    Good luck babe xx
