My one piece of advice is you may be setting yourself up for failure. It seems like an hour twice a day is a little too much. If you keep it up great but I would recommended doing it only once a day. Also just really watch your portions. Remember 5-6 meals a day. Lots of water and I believe you could easily achieve your goal. Eat lots of green veggies.

diva28 all diets plans are good whether natural or artificial are good..disregard "fad diets"..

Just remember what diet plans you have choose before you will acquire it,firstly visit a doctor seek for any advice if that diets is good or bad....if it is bad you could ask some diets plans that the doctor could recommend to you.

Hi there,

I am also on a Weigh Loss Journey and the thing that I have found to be the best for trying to lose weight is to actually build muscle.

Muscle burns more calories then fat. When you do cardio workouts you are working on your heart, lungs etc, so you will become fitter but in turn not always lose weight or as much as you want.

When doing cardio as soon as you stop on that treadmill you stop buring calories.

When doing weights training you are buring calories for up to 4 hours after you stop your workout as your muscles are in repair mode.

But in saying this Mucsle also weighs more then fat. Fat is a soft tissue and doesn't actually weigh all that much. Where as Muscle is hard tissie and the more you work them the harder they get.

I have been working out for 5 weeks now non stop, I do 3 gym classes a week all for toning and muscle build and 6 gym workouts. I do 2 lower body workouts 2 upper body workouts and 2 cardio workouts doing ab and fitball exercises with each one.

My weight has not gone down a whole (like a few kilos) But I am visibly skinnier, toner, and healthier looking.

At first it takes time to come to terms that when weight training you will still be a similar weight but you wont have the fat anymore.

Muscles burn more calories as fat. Once you get down to a deirable size if you keep maintaning and working on your muscles you will find it a lot harder to excess fat back on.

How have you gone since September? I would recommend you focus on your daily food intake, by following a meal plan. You're doing plenty of cardio, so it comes down to what you are eating. Quality and quantity.......good foods in the right amounts. You still have 4 weeks left, go hard!
