I was wondering what tips do you all suggest for a gal who's shadow hasn't darkened the door to a gym in six years. A little background about me: I have three babies at home ages 4-1 yrs old, a doting husband (who is bonkers about "curvy" chics), and I'm just you're typical housewife who is trying to lose a bit more than just baby weight (I'm currently 250 on a 5'6" frame with boobs and a Cuban butt.) I have changed my diet but that alone can't get me any farther. Stupid plateaus. Any tips, tricks, and/or ideas would come much appreciated.
I am a stay at home mom with 3 kids, too. My youngest is 1 and I still have some baby weight to lose. In the past I have gone to the gym to lose baby weight but I can't afford gym fees now. I think that going for a brisk 15-20 minute walk everyday may help a lot for us both. It may be fun if you take the kids, too.
To lose weight you should be on about 1200 cals per day - 300 per meal & 300 for snacks. Losing weight is about 80% nutrition and 20% excersize (approx.) So although you might be eating healthy your portion sizes could be too big. For example for dinner you want about 100g raw chicken breast (110 cals) & the rest made up in vegies etc. - makes for a great stirfry!
