Need Help

Ok, I had back in Dec. I had my 5th. knee surgery...before that I was running & working out every day, my weight was 107-110, needless to say I gained some weight due too being laid up, not too long ago I returned to the gym again, but it seems like I'm having a really hard time getting back to losing weight even though I'm doing what I did back then when I lost weight & was in better shape. I"m not motivated enough & can't seem to get back to it. I"m not saying I'm fat, well, a bit I'm weighing in a t 120 right now, but I don't like it. What can I do?

The biggest factor in weight reduction imo is reducing your calorie intake, that alone can shed the pounds, most times when working out or exercising it will increase your appetite and therefore you will increase your calories and also your weight. The key is consuming the right number of calories combined with proper exercise.

I'm with R1Lover on that one. That said, I'm definitely a couple pounds big of where I aughta be and no dietition/trainer.

But looking at the energy in vs energy out numbers, it sure looks like dieting is a way better way to cut weight than athleticism. But then again most engineers are fat so maybe there's more to it than energy in vs energy out.

HAIL TO THE KING!!

Yes to all the above (even Junior being fat ). Does your local gym have a dieting service? Either that or just go online and search for dieting help. I'm sure you'll get a bunch of hits.
5 knee ops, damn girl are you into snow or water sports? That cause it?

I remember that thread fjorn, but I haven't seen hide nor hair of Stone in ages. Like he's fallen off the freakin' planet. Bit like the same scenario as Val.

been looking for this but I think it pretty much sums up my opinion on why just workouts with no diet plan aren't terribly effective.

Good picture. Haven't seen Stone in ages either. But, the relevance of the thread are still there.

For the record, I've dropped >30 pounds this season thanks to picking up doing triathlons. Hoping to drop another 30+ in the off season. Possibly even more if my body will allow it.

Yup...5 knee surgeries
I"m did alot of yrs. of karate, kickboxing, I ski I'm very active in all kinds of shit. my knee cap keeps coming off & they can't seem to keep it in place with anything. right now i'm dying in pain cause I went riding today, now I"m in pain. it sux. haven't hurt this bad in a while. but, I do need to get back to working out more & running like I did before my last surgery. being old doesn't help....

One of my best friends has dropped over 110 lbs through exercise and nutrition / diet / eating right. He sent me this picture today of him wearing his new riding jacket and the other one is of hima few years ago at probably his heaviest. He's living proof that it can be done if you have the desire.

Oh, I know it can be done..I had done it a few yrs. back. I had lost about 47lbs. by all means i'm not fat right now..I'm weighing 120, but need to go back down to at least 110 & I would be happier. it's just tough to get motivated & all that good stuff once again.

Find a goal that means something to you that you'll stick with more than "just getting healthy and losing weight."

Please don't think I'm being rude or nosey but........

If you think you need to be at 110 instead of 120 (Unless you are really short) that's being kinda picky don't you think? lol

I mean even if you are 5'2" and 120........your skinny.

So if you don't mind me asking how tall ARE you?

I think if you were technically obeise.......the motivation would be there in a heart beat. But just wanting to lose 10 lbs for the hell of it.......that makes things much tougher because you know you don't have to lose it.

Exactly. And depending on her height......she might not even have thickness. (Thickness as far as a man is concerned) What woman think is THICK is considered skinny alot of times.

My GF is 5'2" and about 120 I think and she is perfect to me. Not scrawny. Nice and curvy.

Eye is in the beholder. Some women look good at 120. But, at 110, or 130, they might look fantastic. All depends on the view/perception of who's looking.

BTW, at that low of a weight, 10 pounds can make a HUGE difference. now, if you're 200+, 10 pounds isn't that big of a deal.
