Incredibly over weight 16 year-old girl weight loss help?
I wanna lose 30 pounds and gain some muscle tone and get in pretty good shape by the end of this year. This is a lifestyle change, not just a diet plan either.
I also will be giving myself a light cheat meal once a week. Probably a skinny cow ice cream or something like that.
I'm 5'2" and 140 pounds. I wanna be 110 - 117 by the New Year.
For exercise, here's my plan:
1. This may sound silly, but my sibling and I like to pretend we're performing on stage like a band or something, and we just sing along to songs, but I do alot of running, jumping and dancing. It;s usually about an hour to an hour and 20 mins we do that, and I don't jump and stuff the whole time, I gotta catch my breath a little and all.......so it's probably around 30 - 45 minutes of that.....(it's fun so I'm more likely to do it and not get too bored or anything) ----- I do that about 5 times a week
And then after dinner I do my Jillian Michaels 30 day shred DVD, and 10 minutes on my treadmill and sometimes 10 minutes of stair walking, sprinting up the stairs, and walking back down. I do this if I have enough time to, and I'm gonna try to do the treadmill every night, and after two weeks, add another 5 minutes to it, and then after two weeks, another 5, etc etc, until I can get up to 30 mins straight on it.
I also do chores, some dancing, and I wrestle with my sister sometimes, too.
Breakfast: Usually a whole wheat bagel with one tbs of peanut butter and some fruit
Snack: A piece of fruit, a carrot, or a handful of almonds (1/2 serving - 12 almonds, 75 calories)
Lunch: Either a fruit salad with another 1/2 serving of almonds or a sauteed vegetables (cooked in water) with a little bit of seasonings, top with 1/2 serving of low fat mozzarella cheese (40 calories) with some Morning Star chicken strips on the side (150 calories and 23 grams of protein per strip)
Snack 2: More fruit or vegetables
Dinner: A large salad with lettuce, onion, frozen mixed veggies, 1/2 serving of low fat mozzarella cheese and Morning Star chicken strips with some fruit and/or nuts with it
I also drink 2 - 3 liters of water everyday, and green tea!
Does this all sound good?
