I need to loose about 10 pounds in 1 month. How?
I am doing jillian michaels yoga meltdown for 1 hour every day for the past 8 days.I am currently on steroids s/p renal transplant. I gained 2 pounds in this 8 days. I feel depressed. Since I am on steroids I cant perform weight bearing exercise. Can anyone suggest? after weighing myself I dont feel like exercising anymore
Setting realistic goals and being patient are a must
Have not seen yoga meltdown but the name alone is misleading.
I agree with Susan. I don't follow Jillian's DVD's so I can't speak of them. Also, because I don't know you or your medical condition, fitness level, diet plan and health history it will be very difficult for me to give you any advice other than you should consult with your doctor, a dietitian (if you don’t have one then seek one) and a real trainer (not a DVD).
After you do all of the above I think you will be able to get better results and have a real progress. Don't get disappointed or discouraged, but instead stay optimistic and look for the right avenues to reach your goals.
You may have better luck working with professionals, as the others suggest.
If I may...since you do not feel like exercising after weighing yourself, then...do not weigh yourself. Rather, go by how your clothes fit.
There is much to discuss about weight loss and doing it properly.
Talk to and work with a trainer, dietitian and doctor for best results.
Why do you need to lose the weight faster than two pounds a week?
Good luck and keep up the fighting spirit.
I really think you should consider working with an ACSM Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist. (ACSM RCEP).
An individual who holds this credential has a deep understanding of developing exercise programs for people living with clinical conditions. Furthermore, the exercise programs he/she develops are safe.
Additionally, you might want to also consider working with a health or wellness coach to assist you in identifying the main reasons you want to change.
I hope this is of help to you.
I can understand your feeling of being depressed after doing an exercise routine for an hour per day (whatever it is) and then having gained two pounds at the end of it.
Losing 10 lbs. of weight in a month (and keeping it off) is optimistic at best of circumstances, and your situation is different. My colleagues have already recommended that you have this issue taken up with a physician and/or dietitian, so there is nothing for me to add to that.
What I want to address, though, is your comment that you don't feel like exercising any more. Your experience certainly seems unfair; having put in a effort, and being so poorly re-payed for it. But don't forget that exercise does more for you than what you can see on the scale. Improving body composition, for example, does not show up on a scale, and neither do better strength and flexibility.
Try not to let the number on the scale take control of how you feel or feel about yourself.
I wish you a happy and healthy New Year.
Watch your diet and nutrition. Get on a basic schedule for workouts. Get regular sleep.
Don't worry about the weight. Work on getting to a point to where you can actually workout, then try to push yourself. Then the weight will come off.
