Working out and losses on SS


Full Member
Hi all, I wonder if anyone would share their experiences or any advice they've been given on working out while on SS?

I am keen to tone up and increase my fitness (I used to be pretty fit, but a year or so on my bum has made it a distant memory!) before getting to goal, and especially if it will help speed things along.

However, I have heard things about working out actually slowing down weightloss, or interfering with ketosis, and if anyone happens to be clued up on this I'd love to know: any moderators?

My boyfriend uses stretchy resistance tubes at home for toning and showed me how to do a full toning workout with them this week- I have done it twice this week and it is a good all over workout, really gets the muscles singing! BUT I have felt tired on the diet ONLY since I have done this- even fell asleep the first afternoon after doing it.

Is this a sign that it is too much? Do I risk making myself feel lousy if I continue? I was also planning to VERY slowly buildup to running again- is this a bad idea?

Any thoughts most appreciated. :wave_cry:

Addicted to Minimins!
I was actually wondering that too - as i've started doing 30 mins a day on the mini stepper.
To be honest though i think i'd rather have the weight loss slow down and lose the inches and tone up rather than not exercise at all.
But if anyone's about who knows........... xx

Hello you friendly Mods, any advice on this? Thanks!
I can't help much on this though i plan to start doing light exercise, swimming, walking etc. I don't want to do too much both because i'm not taking in much in the way of calories and also because i want to step up to much more exercise once i'm maintaining so i can help keep the weight off and enjoy meals.

I'm not going to do any exercise until I'm off SS and pretty much near my target weight. I went to the gym last year and just got so puffed out every time I did anything, it really put me off, and I don't want to go and do something I hate - once I'm a lot lighter, I'm sure I will learn to enjoy it and put the bad experiences behind me. I'm already feeling more energetic but have a long way to go yet!

I went clubbing last weekend for the first time in ages, and danced my feet off - without really thinking about what I was doing. I was SO tired for the next few days, really creased! :party0048: Although I had a great time, I think I've proved to myself that a lot of exercise at this time is probably NOT a good thing, so will be taking it a little easier for the rest of the time I'm on SS!
