Courtney what did you do to lose the 30 pounds? And this is what you should do to lose 15 more pounds: eat what you want just small portions and exercise 30 minutes everyday do something with your legs if you wnat to lose that fat there walk, run, bike, etc. and do 20 squats or lunges.

lol. it's me again. sorry- but i have so much time right now because every sunday i'm supposed to clean my grampa's apartment but he's away so i can't this morning. well- i finally found my accelerated pilates tape- i'm going to try it tonight. my goals for this week are as follows: no sweets- 1200 calories- as much veggies and fruits as i can eat for meals and my biggest meal at night. for my exersize: 8 min. tae bo or 20 min. of pilates alternating in the morning with 57 min. pilates or 30 min. of taebo alternating in the afternoon. this week i am going to lose two pounds and drop a few inches. i am going to do a lot better then last week even though i did opk- but the problem is that at the end of the week i do bad on my diet and at school it's hard to eat what i plan for myself but i plan to become stronger. if anyone has any advice to how i can hold on at the end of the week it is very much welcomed. thank you...and also good luck to everyone!

Dear Matt,I'm going to give you the same advice I gave to a girl on this board. Talk to someone about your worries and concerns. They will help you to see things in a clearer manner and if not, they'll find someone who can. Even if your parents aren't together, it doesn't mean they don't love you. You parents split for a good reason, they must have been unhappy, and therefore, made themselves happy by being a part. Talk to one of your parents, or even both. When you see the doctor you can talk to him, or try a teacher. I know it's stressful when you want to lose weight and it won't go away. Believe I've been there, done that and got the t-shirt!!!! Your too young to be worrying about such matter, but it doesn't stop you worrying does it? Please seek help and don't stay quiet. For some reason, a shared problem becomes a shared solution!!!If you need to vent and don't want to talk with your parents, even if I think you should. I'll always be willing to listen. Krystle AKA hodgypie@aol.comTake care Matt and please seek help!!!!!

My aunt is a weight loss instructor, and here is some VERY key information in how you can lose weight. Aerobic training is the only form of exercise where you use two sources of energy: carbs (blood glucose) and fat.
The Surgeon General advises us that, to be healthy, we need to exercise at least three to four times a week, in an aerobic zone, for 20-30 minutes. That is a standard to keep your heart healthy, not to lose body fat by burning calories.Here's what you need to understand. For the first 20 minutes you are exercising in your aerobic zone, you are burning about 80% carbohydrates and 20% fat.
For the next 20 minutes, you are burning about 50% carbs and 50% fat. You're getting better. Now you're gonna start to lose some of that weight as the fat is being burned! So what happens if you start getting into the above 40 minute range? A reversal. You are now burning about... (view more)

Okay I know this isn't a thing to ask for help but I wanted to tell you some tips. Okay here it is do yo ever have that feeling where it is'nt meal time yet but you are really hungry and you don't want to have a huge snack. Well to help lower your hunger eat or drink citrus like ornge juice, oranges, lemonade, and lemons. Anything with citrus will help lower your hunger and myake you feel more full.

Hey everyone.. I got a post asking what the South Beach Diet is, and basically it's this thing with three phases... The first phase is you can basically only eat small portions of only certain types of food and it's kinda like the Atkins diet. The only thing is you are not allowed to eat fruit, barely any dairy, and all carbes, sugar. So as you can see it is pretty restrictive so basicall I am not eating any carbs I added the fruit back in as well as 2 glasses of milk and am eating very very small amounts of sugar.. basically Im not eating any desserts and the sugar I am getting is natural.. so basically thats the south becah diet. Oh I have a question though anybody have a fun way to excersize i mean besides the usual walking.. haha which I can do I just wanted somthing alittle more fun and different.. thanks..
