    exercise???

    Hi all how is everyone getting on with exercise. Have you found your weight loss has slowed down whilst doing exercise? I am debating getting back in the gym after about 2 months off but the last thing I want is my weight loss to slow at the minute. Not sure whether to leave it till I get a bit more weight off. What is everyone else's experience with this please? Xxx

    I've done SW twice and lost over 7 stone each time - once with exercise and the once without. It took twice as long to lose it with no exercise.
    I think a lot of people aren't prepared for the initial effect of fluid retention on the scales but this is just a short term thing and should resolve itself, just make sure you are drinking enough water and eat back some of the calories you are burning off.

    Losing weight is 80% about the food and 20% exercise but exercise is so beneficial in other ways like cardiovascular health so for me personally it is worth the slight gain or sts as in the long term it works itself out and I feel better for doing the exercise.

    It only shows on the scales though (annoyingly). Your body shape and fitness levels will benefit from it. I agree that weight loss is all about what goes in your mouth but I exercise for the benefit to my health (and also I look so much more toned when I exercise)

    I was doing a lot of exercise for about 3 months and lost nothing so I stopped, I'm debating starting again just because I felt so much healthier and I think that might be worth it.It does mean I won't weigh myself though as I done cope well with seeing weigh gain/sts! So maybe that's an idea? Weighing a bit less often! x

    Last time I took up excerise the scales didn't move for weeks, but the inch loss more than made up for it. So measure yourself and keep track. X

    It may be worth you measuring too

    I started exercising a few weeks into starting SW, while I don't get a big loss I've been steadily loosing each week (14 weeks and no gains - it's bound to happen next week now I've said that) - the very first week I stayed the same, after that it's been a steady loss of a lb or so a week and I do feel so much better for it - and am becoming more toned, which is exercise not diet

    I joined a gym about a month after I joined SW, and tbh my weight loss wasn't really affected that much. I think it also depends how much you do all at once. If you ease into it a bit at a time and then increase the amount/intensity, then your body is unlikely to hold onto as much fluid as it will be gradually getting used to it. I could be wrong, but that's what I'd assume would happen!

    I'm one of those who held back on the exercise (apart from my normal walking routine which wasn't anything to shout about). I finally then introduced more when I was about a stone from target and my losses were slowing, but even then it was just investing in a pedometer, doing a minimum of 10000 steps a day (and I aim for about 2/3 of those to be aerobic) and occasionally removing the clothes draped over my exercise bike and using it for it's intended purpose

    The thing is that I know from previous experience that I won't maintain any high level exercise routine (ie going to the gym) long term because it bores me, so I had to find something which I enjoyed and that was as sustainable as the eating side of SW for life
