Working out and not losing weight
0 Have your say As I often cover the topics of health, fitness and lifestyle in my column, I’m frequently asked questions by people who are considering making changes to their daily routine, joining a gym or starting a fitness class. More often than not, those same people feel nervous at the prospect of hitting the fitness scene and have inaccurate perceptions about what personal trainers and those working in the fitness industry are really like and what will be expected of them.So this week I’m going to bust a few fitness industry myths, in the hope that it will remove the fear and set a few things straight.

Although the industry seems to have swayed massively towards quick fixes and overnight transformations, the reality is that the biggest success comes from creating sustainability with lifestyle changes not fads. Baby steps and steady progress yield … [Read more...] about Katie Bulmer-Cook: Why losing weight doesn’t have to be your number one goal

Sally Donnelly spent years missing out on family memories, and she just felt “horrible.” But now that she has lost 68 pounds over the last year, that will all change in July.“I have a 14-year-old grandson and he lives in Texas. When he would come up in the summer, I was too heavy to really enjoy going out, swimming, fishing and doing all the things that I know I was capable of doing, but couldn’t in my body.

I’ll be the first to tell you that I’ve been there. For most of my young adult life, I weighed in just under the average for my age and height. Then, when I turned 25 I started taking an anxiety medication that catapulted the scale upwards a full 45 pounds — despite not having changed my diet or exercise routine. While I definitely have been hard on myself over the eight months since the weight gain, I took it upon myself to re-up my gym membership, sign up for ClassPass to give myself some variety and make more conscious food choices. Over the … [Read more...] about I’m doing everything right, but I’m still not losing weight. What’s going on?
