    I need to lose more before I can exercise properly but I have found that the weeks when I've walked more I have lost more. I have lost weight on the weeks I haven't walked but not as much and its been more of a struggle.

    [hangs head in shame] I've done no exercise whatsoever.. apart from walking about morning till night (I have a 3 yr old) but specific exercise.. zilch! I've lost 2 stone 8 since October. hmmmm wonder how much I'd lose if I did actually get some exercise in.

    I think you have summed it up yourself, you do loose weight without exercise but you do loose more with it.
    But i do suggest maybe getting a pedometer that way you will be concious of how much walking you do, wright this down ever week and without realising you will be trying to do more.

    hello there

    i am on the opposit end of the spectrum, when i exercise, i gain weight because me excess weight turns into muscle. I used to go gym 5/6 days a week and lost 2lbs in 8 weeks (and dieted at same time, and never cheated or drank alcohol once) honest !!!!!!!!!!I HAVE LOST 3 AND HALF STONE SINCE MAY LAST YEAR AND THE ONLY EXERCISE I DO IS WALKING .So i just walk about 3 miles a day on some days , but each to their own tho. Not everyone is the same.

    Gl on your wl journeys xx - julie

    If that happened then you were doing the wrong sort of exersize, to burn fat you need to do cardio workouts, i think the rule to go by is if your sitting or laying its not right!!

    BLUEDIAMOND Well-Known Member

    I did do cardio , cross trainers etc , and thats what happened to me

    Have you done a food diary and taken it to your group leader there is definately somthing not adding up, cardio will burn fat before it forms muscle!

    BLUEDIAMOND Well-Known Member

    i was not on sw at the time, had had a trainer as well, was using all the gym equipment right and yes had a food diary ( a must have), can only put it down the diet that i was doing at the time (ww).

    All people are different and u were exercising properly julie as u had that fitness bloke with u at all time,i believe everyones metabolisms are different and my mother also never lost weight and she did it properly.where myself i do lose weighjt when i exercise but i have alot of weight to lose.try not to worry to much if not losing as u know your waist line is still shrinking with exercise whick is obviously turnng to muscle,im sure you be looking great soon

    I've lost 2st in eight weeks, and have done no exercise at all! I don't even walk to work anymore, only do that in the summer, I've been getting the bus back and forth since the cold weather set in.

    However, I do have a LOT of weight to lose which might explain it, maybe as time goes on I will need to start exercising as well. I do use up some energy at work, lots of hefting and walking around with heavy boxes, up and down a very steep flight of stairs a dozen times a day.
