    Smile What works for you?

    Hi everyone!
    I'm been really nosey but I'd really like to know what works for people in terms for losing weight/feeling good.
    For me it's walking. I will take up cycling again once I find a comfortable enough seat
    If I'm walking a good hour a day I find I lose quite a bit! When I was working on the wards I dropped about 10kgs but now I'm working in psych I'm sitting on my butt and piling it aaaaallll back on...and then some I don't have my ponies with me atm so am not riding the weight off either

    So what works for you awesome lot?
    And any ideas on what I can do as there is no way I have time for long walks any more

    Walking is great! I used to walk a lot. Now, I have knee issues that make walking less fun. Weight lifting builds muscles and musclue tissue burns a lot more calories than fat.

    I walk to and from the hospital five times a week but it's not doing anything other than making me feel good
    After graduation I'll get my a into g and get the blood pumping again

    Moving, whether walking, cycling, running or whatever works best for me. Depending on your schedule, you may have to make time to walk. Walk on your breaks at work and school, just try to fit in some movement wherever you can. Every lil bit helps.

    Walking and yoga. The yoga makes me feel all stretched out and strong.

    I do lots of random things throughout the day.
    When I'm at home studying, doing laundry/dishes I jog in place, and make sure I make as many trips as I can.
    I jog a mile every day, and have been working on extending it.

    In a week I lost 6.4 lbs, just by eating healthily. I'm about go to my weightwatchers meeting today and weighing in. Excited!

    Just mostly watching what I eat and not eating junk

    I try cutting one thing out of my diet at at time. Right now it's soda.
    Also, if I keep moving (walking dogs, riding, whatever) when I get home from work instead of sitting down then I'm less likely to snack.

    I have always been a few lbs heavier then I would like. I wasnt the 105 lb skinny mini in high school like all y fy friends seemed to be. I eat pretty good salads and a lot of veggies, low on the red meat and I don't eat chips, popcorn or soda at all. A couple of years ago I started having siezures my doctor thinks are associated with sleep apnea. But im still on the waiting list for a sleep study, so in the mean time I take anti convulsants to control them. Guess what the number one side effect is? Yeah...rapid weight gain.So I went out and found a used rebumbant excercise bike. I ride three to six miles a day depending on how Im feeling. I ride at least one horse a day, usually two or three is the norm though. And I work at a goat dairy...so Im moving a lot at work. Most of this makes me feel good. But I feel like I always have to do three times as much to lose what normal people would doing just a mile walk. All because of this blasted medication. Ok im done complaining.

    Your doctor may be able to put you on a different medication, as there are more than one.
