flabby skin.
February 2, 2013 at 6:20 PM
I've started working out, walking on a treadmill, and eating rift, and I've already lost a few lbs.

My stomach and my thighs are my main concern. What should I be doing for them inorder to get them toned and smaller. They are big and well....jiggly. my stomach has a hang over. Will this ever go away? Even if I lose all the weight I need to?

I'm 5'3 and 178 I'm trying to lose 30 to 40 lbs by Dec.

Help. I'm so lost and so desperate.

Thanks.

Also, eating wise, I stopped all soda, eat smaller portions, try to stop eating junk food. Do I absolutely have to count calories?.

     You're almost like me except I'm 24 and I have an 8 yr old son. I weigh 174. My issue with flabby skin is my stomach though. Congrats on the weight loss so far! I am 5'2. I use my fitness pal to count calories but I think if you eat sensible and eat well you should be okay. Good luck!

    1. go here first
    2. then go here and follow instructions
    3. then subtract 500 from #2 and that's what you should be tracking too.

    try and hit your target heart rate for max caloric burn and try to sustain that for a period of time.  i would try and burn more cals per workout but the important part is that you keep challenging yourself during every workout.

    How can I fins out how many calories I should be eating? Also, I am trying to burn at least 200 calories a day when I work out. Should u aim for more?


    Quoting itsm3:

    eat clean, track your calories, eat within your caloric range for weight loss, and keep exercising; always continue to work harder during your workouts for max caloric burn.

    the jiggly will go away.  the tummy area is usually the hardest and takes longest to  lose but be patient.  it took me a good 8months for my tummy to get flat again.

     So am I. I'm tired of being fat and feeling like a slob and seeing skinny girls and being envious when I know if I work hard enough and long enough I feel good about myself as well

    Ok. So let's say it says 1607: I subtract 500 from that and that's how many calories a day I should aim for?


    Should u aim for burning about 500 a day? I'm going to start adding in weights, sinuous burn a lot when doing weights?

    i wouldn't subtract 500 from 1607 because that would leave you under 1200 and that's usually too low.

    did you follow all links and read everything?  the first number on the first link gives you your BMR.  then you take your BMR and multiply that by the value depending on your activity level (link #2).  then from that number, you subtract about 500cals.  is this what you did?

    as for burning the number of cals during workouts, the more intense the better but don't push yourself too hard the few first times.  the avg workout burns around 300-400 cals.  some burn more (interval training) and some burn less (if you ride a stationary bike at a steady pace).  either way, any workout is a good workout.  you need to ease your body into it and over time, your body will get stronger and stronger.  whatever workout you do, always challenge yourself.

    Haha, no forgot to multiply. Lol.

    I am just using a treadmill right now, and a Tony little guizelle. With a bike, my knew pops in and out. I don't run though, not able to....yet. but u do walk for about a mile ans burn about 200 or so cals.

    Just a question, why do you subtract the 500?

    it's just a guideline.  for those who are breastfeeding, you wouldn't subtract that much. but many people do very well with a -500 deficit.
