Healthy weight loss tips
* Take one pound at a time
Don’t get overwhelmed by how much weight you need to lose. Try to remember that "losing 15 pounds in two weeks" is nothing to celebrate. It is important to realize that the more quickly weight is lost, the more likely the loss is coming from water and muscle, not fat.
Since muscle tissue is critical in keeping our metabolism elevated, losing it actually leads to a decrease in the amount of calories we can each day without gaining weight.
Fat loss is best achieved when weight is lost slowly. Strive for a weight loss of no more than 3-4 pounds per week. One pound of weight is equivalent to 3500 calories.
* Set Reachable Goals
For instance, if you know you need to get more exercise, begin with a manageable goal of, say, walking 10 minutes a day that you know you can achieve. Then build your self-esteem by achieving the small goals you set yourself.
The same logic applies for losing weight.
* Stay off the scales
Don’t get discouraged when your progress seems to be slow according to your bathroom scales. They do not provide a true measure of what is going on with the body.
If exercise levels are adequate (5-7 days a week), you may be putting on muscle but losing fat, thus losing inches even if you are not losing pounds. It's always a good idea to do several body measurements to have a second objective way to monitor progress.
* Stay focused on being healthy, not thin
# Many people become more successful at long term weight loss when their motive changes from wanting to be thinner to wanting to be healthier. Change your mindset to think about selecting foods that will help your body's health rather than worrying about foods that will affect your body's weight. The Food Pyramid offers a basic outline of the types and amounts of food you should eat each day to give your body the nutrients it needs for optimal health.
* Fat Free?
We've known for some time that limiting high fat foods in the diet can be helpful with weight loss. That's because fats pack in 9 calories per gram compared to only 4 calories per gram from proteins or carbohydrates. To many, the message to limit fats implied an endorsement to eat unlimited amounts of fat-free products. Just to clarify, fat-free foods have calories too. In some cases fat-free foods have as many calories as their fat laden counterparts. If you eat more calories than your body uses, you will gain weight. Eating less fat will help you to lose weight. Eating less fat and replacing it with excessive amounts of fat-free products will not.
* Drink plenty of water
Drink eight glasses a day. Water is a natural appetite-suppressant. Nettle tea is a great weight-loss tea as it supports metabolism and has diuretic properties.
* Reward yourself
# Each time you reach a goal, such as losing 5 pounds, reward yourself with a gift or a massage.
* Seek help if you need it
# A big key in long term weight control comes from receiving encouragement and support from others. Find a friend to lose weight with or you can check to see if groups such as Weight Watchers, or eDiets offer programs and resources in your area by clicking the links. You may also wish to check with your local hospital to see if their registered dietician conducts group weight loss programs.
* Watch your portions
With the advent of "supersize" meals and increasingly huge portions at restaurants, our concept of normal serving sizes is a distant memory. Be mindful of the amounts of food you consume at a sitting. When necessary, divide your food in half and ask for a take home bag. It is all too easy to be a "plate cleaner" even when served enormous portions. Learn to pay attention to your hunger level and stop eating when you feel comfortably full, not stuffed.
* Eat your food slowly
Did you ever notice that thin people take an awfully long time to eat their food? Eating slowly is one method that can help take off pounds. That's because from the time you begin eating it takes the brain 20 minutes to start signaling feelings of fullness. Fast eaters often eat beyond their true level of fullness before the 20 minute signal has had a chance to set in. The amount of calories consumed before you begin to feel full can vary significantly depending on how quickly you eat. So slow down, take smaller bites and enjoy your food.

Originally Answered: 20 days to lose love handles and inner thigh fat? or atleast lose some of it?
I advise following:
Answer following: 1.- Do you want to have a hard, lean body? Or 2.- Do you want to be skinny with wobbly bits here and there (and see them grow into respectable (and frightening) love handles as time passes by)?
I know a girl: 5'5 - 140 lbs - size 2.
I know another girl who is 5'5 - 140 lbs - size 9
The difference: one is overweight and doesn’t exercise; the other one is a girl who exercises.
There is no fast, easy, miraculous way to lose weight. And whoever tells you otherwise, is lying.
It's about the right time to start getting healthy habits (if you don’t acquire them at a young age, chances are you won’t be missing them later). I, for one, would start running. It doesn't cost money and you will burn fat.
Maybe you also want to know that you don't want to lose muscle (which is a lot heavier than fat, but compact and, therefore, makes your body look lean and hard). You want to lose fat.
In order to lose 1lbs of fat, you have to burn 3500 calories. If you diet with no exercise, you will not only lose fat, but also muscle. Muscle, on the other hand, is what makes your metabolism fast. So, if you lose muscle, you slow down your metabolism. When you gain weight (and, believe me, you will gain weight) you will gain more fat than muscle (which you would only gain if you exercise).
The best thing to do, at your young age, is resistance training. Check following links: Remember: YOU WON'T BULK UP (like guys do) BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE a guy’s level of TESTOSTERONE (masculine hormone)!!!
BTW, EXERCISE CONTROLS YOUR HUNGER. You should also eat 6 small meals a day; one every 2.5 (maximum 3) hrs.!!! This will control your sugar levels, therefore, you won't be binging!!!
It is very important that you understand: it's not about starving your body! Your body NEEDS food, but good-quality-food! Good-quality-food it’s important for your muscles!!! If you don’t have a balanced diet and you over-exercise, you will lose precious fat-burning muscle!!!! You can check a healthy nutritious diet @ www.bodyforlife.com!!!
Remember, you should exercise at least 1 hr/day, 5 days/week, and rest 2 full days so your muscles can recover and grow. Use 3 days to work on your muscles and 2 for cardio. Always let 1 day between your muscle’s workout.
Another tip: DON’T weigh yourself. You should never trust a scale, if you want to lose fat, but not muscle (your fat burning machine). Instead, keep track of how your pants fit, and measure your weigh loss by how smaller you’re getting according to the sizes you’re leaving behind!
If you have money, I would invest it on 2 workout programs:
2. Chalean Extreme
Both amazing, believe me!!! And if you do them consistently, you'll look great!!! My daughter is almost as ripped as she wants to be. (I still have a lot to do, but the point is: GREAT!)
you need to do 200 minutes of cardio a week. Remember fat does not turn into muscle, so you need to lose your fat while putting on muscle. The 45 minute thing is not true, but don't over 60 minutes at a time.
Do 5-10 minutes of cardio to warm up, then do your weight training. Do 30 to 60 minutes more of cardio, then go home.
The best time to eat is just after your workout within an hour when your metabolism is raging. For your muscles, incorporate some isolated soy protein or whey protein. Whey is more potent but the soy tastes better!
Don't look at your scale as the be all and end all, but get a measuring tape to check your progress, and that will show more tangible results.
Good luck and stick at it.

Wow you've got your hands full! Don't feel bad if you find it a struggle to lose weight. The ideal thing for all of you is a good long walk to the park. Walking is the best exercise, you can do it anytime and anywhere and you and your kids can be involved. At the park, you could play ball with your 2-year old. Also swimming might be something else to consider. Some sports centres also have creches where the kids can be looked after for an hour while you do an aerobics class or whatever you fancy. Good luck!

Well some tips for you first:
Cut your portions down, drink lots of water (it flushes all the bad stuff out), and walk as much as possible (parking lot at work park farther away, take stairs, etc.)
With your kids:
Soccer, swimming, bike riding (find a path nearby or just in the neighborhood), Simon says (sounds funny, but if you participate you're still burning calories), see who can make it to the top of the hill first. This is with the older boy. Unless I'm misreading and you mean 2 mos. and 10 months old. In this case, follow this one: With the 10 month old there are routines online where you can actually like lift the baby up on your legs and things of this nature; there's a whole workout which will show you what to do. There are lots of things you can do that the kids will love to do if you make a game out of it. Good luck. =)

whooo!!! Being single and the mom of two little boys, you probably feel like you're working out all the time!!
But, aerobic actiivty will boost your energy level and keep you going. Ok, how to start? How about finding a park with a walking trail. Take your youngest in a stroller, you have the added benefit of pressing weight somewhat, along with getting your heart going. Your 2 year old will love being outdoors. Make time for your walk each evening directly after your meal. (20 minutes is enough to start) It may seem like too much trouble to get ready to leave the comfort of your home, but believe me, the benefits far outweigh the struggle. So just do it. You'll feel and look better. And you will bond even closer with your children.

I'm a single dad of two. I have the same situation. What I did is join a karate school that had a superb kids program so that we can do things as a family. Plus I'm really into MMA. Then I walk on my lunch break at work. I also have gym pass at a 24-hour fitness. The other thing I do is have the kids bike around the park/lake and I have to keep up. It's safe and you can really build up a sweat.

Originally Answered: Is it faster to lose ten pounds or lose a dress size?
Technically, you could lose a dress size and keep the same weight. Work on light weight lifting and toning. This will tighten your muscles and make you appear slimmer. If you only did cardio, you would burn fat, but may not lose the inches you'd like. A combination of both cardio and weight training would be ideal and see the fastest results. Good luck!
