So after 1 month on Orlistat i have lost 9lb (apparantly thats 4 blocks of butter, wish I could see that off my thighs!). Im really pleased, but now I have to have the motivation to keep going and not celebrate with food like I usually would. (BTW, I started on 15.8, so now down to 14.13). I think what helped me aswell as the pills was cutting out a few meals on the days that im not exercising, not having carbs everyday, im a regular at the cinema and am a sucker for icecream, so i will have an icecream instead of a meal. I also read that to loose 1lb, you need to brun 3500 calories, so I've been making sure to do this every week.
So I'm going to the gym more, but I'm not seeing the results I want. At the moment I'm on the treadmil high incline, fast walking pace till i burn 300 calories and have gone 5Km, going to two body pump classes a week and swimming once or twice. I don't feel fit enough yet for the high intensity classes, as i feel deflated if I can't keep up. Ive also started doing 100 stomache crunches and 50 push ups with each work out, which is 3-4 times a week. Does anyone have any suggestions for a good work out, that can also include toning my arms?
Summer is not my thing, but I'm going to use it to my advantage and try to get outside more!
