Losing weight has been a personal struggle for me my whole life, and I will tell you honestly the time that I spent 5 days a week in the gym - 2 hours a day - elliptical and weight training only got me a 10 lb loss in 4 months and no inches lost. When I did Slim in 6 - I lost 11 inches off of my hips alone. check it out at you can see my before and after pics.
Carol makes extremely great points. True and lasting weight loss does not come overnight or with a quick fix. It takes work. If you do not have a gym, I would suggest finding other ways to do cardio as well as weight training. Here are a few of my suggestions:
Cardio: Walk oustide, Run (if you can - look at Couch to 5K plan to work up to running), At Home Cardio workouts (check out my blog for ideas)
Weights: Purchase a set of dumbbells - I recommend a set of 3, 5, and 8 pounds to start. Then look for weight lifting workouts on line. Pinterest is a great source as well as blogs.
I'd be happy to share some of my at home workouts with you!
