need to drink water for sure if you want your body to do anything :)

no pop.

lean protein, good carbs, good fats. take your 3 meals and make them into six smaller ones. this will raise your metabolism along with whatever cardio you decide to do.

make sure you read through all the stickies at the top of this forum...

Ok, you obviously know what your problem is but you said it yourself that your not dedicated and can't stick with anything.

1) Being a couch potato is going to get you anywhere.. you need to get off your ass and become active.
2) Eating 3 Big Meals a day is the wrong way to go about losing weight, split it into 6 or so smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and eat every 3 hrs or so.
3) No junk food, you already know its bad for you so you need to make better healthier decisions. Check the nutrition stickies for examples of healthy foods.
4) If you start eating healthy foods you can EAT MORE of the food and still consume less calories, its going to require a lifestyle change.
5) Your going to have to do some sort of cardio, find something you like and can stick with it. Start off slowly and gradually increase your activity level. Situps, pushups aren't going to get you to your goal.
6) Keep track of what you ACTUALLY consume, sign up for a site like FitDay.com and input your food totals each day for a week or so. This will give you a good idea of how many calories you actually consume and you can start to slowly cut them down from there.

We can only give you general advice, its up to you to make the lifestyle changes in order to accomplish your goals. The sooner you get started on it the easier its going to be for you.

you can also do basic body weight exercises. go to www.rosstraining.com and they have a lot of videos to look at. but since you arent used to working out at all. you should start with push ups and crunches. they will help a lot. if you dont know how many to do, get a deck of cards, shuffle them up. pick the card from the top. how ever many it says do that amount, make all face cards 15 and the ace is 20. go until you cant go no more. alternate days with push ups and sit ups

there are plenty of websites that you can look up. i think sentinal posted up a few links that can help in another forum. you iwl just have ot look through them.

but you dont need weights to get in shape. you can run, ride a bike, jump lots of rope, do push ups and sit ups, when you get strong enough get a dip rack with some pull up handles, and do those. do body, squats and jump squats.

where there is a will...............there is a way

leslien407 12-11-2007 12:01 AM
