Need To Lose Weight But Don’t Know Where To Start

i-dont-knowMy weight has gotten so out of hand. I have no energy and sleep at night is horrid from the weight gain, no matter how I lay my body hurts. I need to lose weight at least 30lbs. I work 10hrs day / 6 days a week so I don’t have much time. I don’t know what to do or where to start. I’m so beyond sad and disgusted with my body. I’m only 4’11 and yet weigh about 145. I would like to lose at least 30lbs.

How’s your diet? Even a simple diet change and vitamin regiment can perk you up and help your weight loss.

I eat mostly veggies. Lots of spinach, tuna chicken breast and eggs and sadly a lot of cheese which I know I need to cut out

Try to eat as clean as possible (cut out sugars, white flour and processed foods) Lean meats, complex carbs, healthy fats and drink lots of water! I have a list of weight loss/lifestyle tips that I can send you if you’d like.

Someone recently told me that weight loss is 70% diet-30% exercise.

I always thought it was more 50/50 but it does make sense. Eventually you need to eat right to make things work.

I’m still trying to figure out what works for my body. I think we are all different and just need to figure out what works for us

During my lunch break I do 15 minutes of CORE exercises and 15 minutes of upper body or lower body or cardio depending which day with free weights that I keep in my desk drawer. While watching television, I have a little pedal exerciser that I do. Just try to stay moving no matter what you are doing. Heck I even do kegels while driving to and from work! Chewing gum burns calories – still moving! Drinking ice water causes your body to burn more calories to heat it to equilibrium. Eating spicy food speeds up your metabolism. The more muscle you gain, the more calories you burn even at rest.

Also take a look at your vitamin intake because a deficiency in most will cause your lack of energy. Omega 3, iron, Vitamin D, B12 all help with energy and mood for that matter. I also like St Johns Wort, which helps with mild depression and anxiety.

Typical day of food for me: morning glass of emergency, 2 eggs, 1c spinach, snacks: apples, orange, avacado,cheese sticks. Lunch usually depends on the day but salad with chicken and veggies/peppers normally. Dinner tuna/chicken/ fish with chick peas or another bean with more veggies (usually garlic spinach).

I’m also try to walk about 30-40 mins a day. I downloaded a few fitness apps I’m going to try during my break. Its 200 push-ups,200 crunches, 200 squats and 500 jumping jacks. It works with you to build up to those amts

I have this one woman on youtube who does fitness workout routine. Tiffany Rothe Workouts. Look her up. She has some videos where you sit down in your chair. she has 10 min workouts and some that focus on a certain part of the body. You might like it.
