Scenario: I've tried this and that diet, lost some weight, then gained it back FAST. Even though I've read that 30 minutes a day helps you lose weight, it's not working for me.
To take off this weight, you need to make a decision. Is losing this weight that important to me that it would justify the necessary commitment? Am I willing to do what it takes to get rid of this extra baggage?
This most likely requires an overhaul of your current lifestyle. New habits to form. A new attitude. If you haven't gotten help yet, now's the time to get it. There's no gray area here, you either do it, or you don't.
Most experts agree that to lose and keep 25+ pounds off, you'll need to exercise for at least an hour a day for the rest of your life (actually, EVERYBODY, regardless of body size, should exercise for the rest of their lives).
You may have been told that to drop the pounds you need more aerobics. But if you want to take your aerobics to a higher level, you need better-conditioned muscles. Then you can handle your walking, swimming, biking, gardening, and housework with more intensity and less fatigue. How do you do that? That's right... strength training.
