hy is any one following lt and doing exercise at the same time or not doing exercise and still getting big loses?
I haven't done any exercise whilst on LT, simple haven't got the energy (4 kids and a household to run) and have had very succsessful weight loss each week BUT I know there are many others who do alot of exercise and have good weight loss.
The down side of not doing any exercise, for me personally, is that I am very untoned, the most untoned I have ever been in fact.

i am thinking of starting exercise again soon! i have the hannah waterman vid which is good but i twisted my ankle on it a few weeks back and not done anything since! i would advise if you are not a regular exerciser anyway that you ask advice from your G.P before starting!
I haven't done any exercise at all barring working 3 days. I think I would't be able to do any more as I'm too dizzy on fast moving and too tired. But you're probably much younger than me. lol : )
Inches lost :
Chest - 7
Waist - 7
Hips - 9
R thigh - 6
L thigh - 6
U arm - 3 1/4
U arm - 3 1/4
= 42 1/2inches smaller Raaaaayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!
Can't believe I have to start at the beginning again. Stupid stupid me
Moved on to weight watchers to lose the rest slowly .
I feel ashamed to admit I've not done any exercise since starting LT, but still seem to be getting good consistent losses each week. I really need to start doing some though, my tummy is like a jelly now lol!

Hi, I am buying a vibro plate trainer in May (have to order it) so can get the exercise without getting sweaty, as moving too quick i get a little light headed this seems the best alternative and 10 mins on it is the same as an hours work out in the gym so must be good.
Fingers crossed it works eh.
I've gone exercise mad... Last time it was all I could do to get up n the morning... But this time, I'm on the treadmill- all being walking not running... The crosstrainer and I'm swimming- all be that it's really a doggy paddle... I did try the wii but my balance is very dicky since I've been on this and keep fallng off.. And I walk to and from work 4 miles a day... It's really odd I just don't know what's got into me..... But my weight loss is less than when I did it before... I guess the less you have to loose the slower it is, but not too sure on that..
week 1 -8lbs
Week 2 -2lbs
week 3 -3lbs
week 4 -3lbs.1 stone 2lbs gone. And a third of the way through my journey
week 5 -5lbs... Maybe a bit optimistic but if it's so wrong next week will rectify that with a proper scales
week 6 -2lbs..don't mind too much becaus it's half a stone in 2 weeks..
week 7 . This is so hard to do but last night I ate 3 slices of turkey and today I weigh 3lbs more than I did last week, but its my own fault for giving in... moving on to next week now!!!
week 8 -7lbs- but i'm sure its the confusion for eating but i'm not going to shout at the scales lol...7lbs is 7lbs...
I tried going to the gym but I dont seem to have the energy, I got dizzy after ten mins, then tried walking and same thing but that was at the start of my LT journey. I got a vibro plate 2 weeks ago, they say it takes 2 weeks to see results but I couldnt use it last week because it was TOTM and you cant use it then.
But last week was my second highest weigh in over the seven weeks and that was the only thing I changed, even if it was only for a week.
hoping to start more exercise now though.
Ive started lipotrim today and wanted to know about doing exercise aswell, i go the gym about 3 times a week, and i love swimming, would it be better to just maybe swim rather than the gym and swimming? ive also got a cross trainer that i use at home and a wii fit.

It is recommended that you don't exercise during the first week or so, after that it is generally recommended that you do light exercise - swimming and the likes. However as your body is already used to going to the gym regularly, I should think that as long as you don't over the do the exercise you should be fine to continue - just make sure you drink a glass of water before you go to the gym.
LT state that there is no significant weight loss difference between those who exercise and those who don't!
Remember, exercise is not just about weight loss, it is essentaial for a healthy heart and lungs, it relives stress, it gives you core stability which is essential for a healthy back, it builds muscle and the higher % of muscle we have in our bodies the more calories we burn on a day to day basis and at rest, it is good for our skin as increased blood flow helps to tighten the skin and gives you a glow, it gives you more energy in the long run, it helps you get a good nights rest,and it lifts your mood!!!!
I'm on my first week, started monday and I am going to aqua aerobics wednesday, only bit of exercise i think i will be doing, unless i go for a walk on sunday while everyone is having sunday lunch been told not to do much so i am not. next week however i plan on going to swimming twice, maybe to the gym and aqua aerobics. want to swim but as i was used to doing a mile last year and it didn't do much to my weight, been told to start with 20/30 laps and build it up until i am doing 2 miles a week to loose that way
