Me again ...Just wonderd about excersice??

#1
Hello,

I joined my local gym last night to help me loose weight on the CD and i was just wonderding if its ok to actually excersice because after i got back i spoke to mt CC and she said not to do too much cos i might not loose weight and gain muscle and i really dont wanna do that! So would it be ok to like do some swimming and cardio. I thought joining would make the weight come off faster and now im worried that ive paid for my first month and i wont be using it as much! :(

Does anybody fnd that excercise helps with the weight loss?? xx

Hi. I'm no expert, but I thought we were to avoid cardio, possibly to do with not taking in many calories, but toning was ok. I would say swimming is always good. I am sure there is someone out there who has a better answer for you though.

Linzy my first time around on CD last year I exercised whilst SSing at about week 7 and my losses per week were between 3 and 4 lbs. This time around (as I put it back on because I didn;t follow through all the plans) I haven't excercised as half as much and losses average about 2lb per week. I think it depends on the individual and if you feel weak at any time you should stop. Hope it helps. (I did cross trainer, treadmill and weights)

When l first started CD to be honest l didn't have the energy to exercise, but once my body got used to the diet l started exercising (walking then jogging, exercise bike, sometimes aerobics, whatever l felt l wanted to). I increased it gradually as l really enjoyed it and felt great doing it. Not sure how much extra weight it helped me lose, but l'm sure it helped me stay more motivated.

i think to start with your only meant to do gentle exercise on SS like walking. i knwo at first i barely manag the stairs sometimes, but my energy increases with time.
i recently joined the ladies only gym for cardio, but seeing as im back on SS im just using the toning machines!

I go on my exercise bike but only do 9 or 10 k at the moment. I also swim a couple of times a week.
I take a bar to have with me when I have finished.
