I am in no way an expert in this. However, how about you do some running the first thing in the morning so before breakfast? I think that might help burn a lot of fat!

Learn how weight loss works, it is all about the calorie deficit.

Buy yourself some kitchen scales and start weighing and logging what you eat.
Eat at a consistent accurate calorie deficit and you will be fine, if you dont lose weight over time, then you arent at deficit. No ifs and bust.

Use myfitnesspal or read the stickies or do something like couch to 5000.

Bought myself a set of dumbbells, and it worked for me. Lost face weight for starters. Which helps.

I just need to keep at it. I’m going to guess that by the time January or February comes, I should lose some of the abdomen. (Currently in the process of quitting smoking; which doesn’t help with waist. So if I quit that , I expect a good level of physique in no time to be honest)


But Yh, point is. Get some dumbbells and lift!!!

What about a exercise ball? Alternatively you can sign up for fitness classes at your local community gym. Another option is to see if you can borrow exercise books from your library or purchase some exercise DVDs from Amazon. If you have a community sports club within walking distance, call them up to find out about lessons for adults. Or take a look at the website. You can even become a fee paying member of a council funded leisure centre, again call or email for more information. Charity shops and garden centres sell a limited variety of fitness books etc as well. There are lots of Facebook groups for fitness buffs. If you have enough money to spend, you can hire a fitness trainer.
