Default Weight Loss with or without Exercise

How much have you lost so far?
How many weeks/months or year(s) did it take?
Did you exercise anytime during your weight loss phase, yes or no?

I just incorporated walking into my daily routine, about 1 hour and 20 minutes at least 4 X per week, and I really see the difference in my weigh ins. I am hoping after I lose another 20-30 pounds that I can start running. I work with a lot of people that run in different marathons over the year and I would love to be able to join them in a 5K.

I definately recommend !

They say diet is for weight loss, exercise is for fitness. The first time I lost weight I worked out but I didn't incorporate much strength training so I was "skinny fat". To explain what I mean, I'm strength training now and I weigh 153.6. I am capable of wearing the same pants that I wore when I was 130. Huge difference. I have more endurance, I'm slimming up faster because muscle weighs more than fat, I'm faster, stronger, etc..

I try to walk almost every day, at least half an hour a day (usually closer to an hour). I give myself one break day and I try to do weights of some kind every other day.

Not generally....just walked and when I could, looking forward to trying to run soon. . I was pretty active before and have plans for winter activities this coming winter so I want my cardio up for it. (more likely to do outside winter activities then outside in the summer)

I've lost 35lb in 8 weeks.

I have gone for a 2.7 mi walk 4x/week through Phase 1. I consider it "functional" exercise since I am taking my son to the park. We live next to a jogging path and it's easier to just walk there than load up the car and drive across the creek. I may have to change up our routine though since it is getting HOT here in TX. Maybe mall walking/play area for the summer. I take an easy pace pushing the stroller.

I just restarted my weightlifting class yesterday (and am SORE this morning after taking it easy!). I have taken it for years, but quit when I started IP and was hesitant to restart. I do want to maintain tone and my coach was encouraging it. I am nervous/anxious/excited to see how my recent changes will affect the scale and body composition. I also added in my 1st restricted and a 4th packet on weight days

I am almost four weeks into Phase I, and my coach told me not to exercise. She said that my body was adjusting to the lower calorie intake, and that what I was eating was enough to sustain me throughout the day. My job does require me to walk a lot, so I haven't felt guilty about not exercising. I was on a low carb diet a couple of years ago and found that it was better to wait until my body adjusted to the lower carbs. The first few times I played tennis, I found that I had very little energy. It did get better as time passed.

LizRR - what weight lifting class do you do? Is it body pump? I'm starting back to body pump this week, 2x a week at first and will go from there.

I love working out and the amazing stress relief it is. I havent worked out the whole month I've been on IP so far, but probably at least half and have lost 22 lbs. I'm definitely looking forward to getting back in this week

Well, maybe I will wait it out for another month or closer to my goal. I just feel guilty not doing it. Crazy eh, didn't worry about exercising while I was putting the pounds on, but now since I'm losing weight, i feel like doing it! lol

Wuv, I'm so amazed on your progress! All of you too!

Tammywhiz, our stats are very similair and I was thinking about starting walking too. Do you add a protein for walking or is that just for weight training? I feel I need to do something because now that the fat is melting something has to take its place, muscle would do just fine!

It is Bodypump @ 24HourFitness, I took it very easy and am sore, but no surprise there! I wanted to get back to weights because I do love the workout, but put it off to give my body time to adjust to IP. I felt fine, but was pretty hungry after. Had a full restricted breakfast before and raspberry jelly snack after, Sat class is @ 8:30am, tue & thu @ 6:30pm.

I'm going to body pump tomorrow - so excited to get back in it! I absolutely love at class, it was with it and running I lost 70 lbs 5 years ago. Unfortunately I gained it back, but for the last time! happy body pump-ing!!

I hear you!! The 80/20 is no joke (results via nutrition vs. exercise that is). Personally weight loss is the ultimate motivator - I *want* to take the stairs rather than the elevator.

Keep it up :]
