My first question is Does anyone have any Medifast recipes that include nutrition and food exchanges? Thanks for any answer or 2. Second question.. The big question about.

Exercise.

Seems to be, "Do I have to?".

Well. we sorta know the answer, but how much is enough and what will help us continue to lose fat and not muscle? What can do, that I can live with for the rest of my life?.

For those of you who have made it to and maintained a goal, what were your REAL.

Exercise.

Efforts and how did you learn what is best?..

Yup, although you might wanna make sure and wait for someone else here to confirm my answer as I am not quite sure. Better yet, why don't you give a call to the Medifast guys because they can give you an answer better...

Due to arthritis in my hip and foot, I have not exercised much since the.

Surgery.

Over the summer I went to water.

Aerobics.

But now that I am back on the road with my job, I don't get to do that. I try to swim at the hotels I stay in, but the water is usually.

Freezing.

And I hate that. I lift arm weights 3 times a week. I have still lost 56 pounds since June. I know it would be more if I would walk but it is just too painful. I need a hip replacement,but I just can't face another.

Surgery.

Right now. I am due to get a cortizone shot in my hip soon and I.

Hope.

That helps. I do have to do some.

Walking.

On the job, so that helps too. I thought losing weight would really help the hip problem, but so far it hasn't...

Well I do have a definately opinion on this issue. I defer to our resident genious Jerry and only remind us all that your routine must be a sustainable program to have real.

Long term success. And having done this now for about a year I would agree with that 100%. As a.

Matter of fact I'd also sat that as long as you're given a day to live can you not find an hour of that day to aid your body and allow it to thrive?.

One hour everyday? Big deal! I promise you your life will change inside of a month or two..

Just do it!.

I know the answe to this question is yes, but I am having a really hard time just getting started...

Comment #4

I started with.

Walking.

5 miles a day outdoorsthen went and added indoor.

Biking.

And the ski machine. now I do.

Aerobics.

1 hour a day with my cardioand the days I don't have aerobic class I go to the weight conditioning roomin November I am starting a jogging clinicshould be fun all outdoors , rain shine or snow we will do it..

For me I have to eat before and after my workoutsthat way I dont loose muscle mass ..

Everyone seems pleased with how I have done ..

Had the gbs on Jan 15, 2010weight was 280 lbs ... now I weight is 154 lbs. I am still loosing.

But when I dont feel to workout then I just walk the 5 miles at least ..

That is how I have maintained ...

Pleb I remember the days when you were a Demon!! Never saw anybody work so hard! Glad you are still active and have had such success!.

I guess the reason I have been stressing.

Exercise.

So much is how hard it is to get started..

Just start where you are, they said, and it is true. I am.

Walking.

A mile and started on a little autopedaler from.

Footsmart.com..

Never would believe I could walk again..

Just move it!..

Comment #6

Just wait til you lose another 100 and se how far and fast you'll go. Just keep.

Walking.

That hill in your hood. Any hill it doesn't matter as long as it's uphill. You'll progress so much faster if you can find some kind of incline to walk..

Less you're doing great, and remember it's just one day at a time..

Just over 1 year post-op. 53 years old. Starting weight ~300. Current weight 175 (BMI 22.5).

YES. One hour aerobic daily (5-6 times per week) + 3 days per week (1 hour each time) at gym doing strength/resistance training..

Is it a lot of work? Yes..

Does it suck a large amount of my free time? Yes..

Has my Medifast diet changed drasticaly. Yes..

Do I.

Avoid.

Many food-enhanced events? Yes..

Do I have to prioritize? Yes..

Do I often find myself doing what is right for me rather than what others expect from me? Yes..

Is it worth it to have a normal BMI for the first time in my life? To throw away my insulin syringes? To shop at 'normal people' clothing stores? To have the opportunityto live longer?.

OH YEAH!!..

Comment #8

I should add that it took a full 7-8 months to build up to my current level of.

Exercise.

, I DID NOT just start doing this much all at once...

Comment #9

Strength training.

I'm just 2 and a half months out but only.

Walking.

A mile a day. I know it should probably be more, but this time in July I could barely walk through the grocery store. I say just listen to your body and do what you can do...

Comment #12

Started.

Strength training.

About 7 months post-op. But frankly, I needed to start this sooner..

And because I had no experience in a gym, I did hire a.

Personal trainer.

To teach me how to use the weigh machines using proper technique. I did not want to injure myself...

Comment #13

Kimcan,.

That is exactly how I started out....

Walking.

Slowly and for short distances at first. Good job!..

Comment #14

Yes I do agree with less2luv you need to do 4 things to reach you ideal weight..

1 the gastric bypass.

2 a good weight reduction diet.

3.

Exercise.

Programme.

4 motivation and will power.

If you do all four you should see results but it's not a race we all have different bodies and will lose a different rates just be patient for results...
