SinfullySweet Posted August 29, 2011 Share Posted August 29, 2011 Last year I sustained an athletic injury that had me off of my feet for more than 6 months. I've gained 20 lbs since then. My diet is pretty healthy. I've done hormone panels and gone off of birth control and I've finally figured out my weight gain. I lost a substantial amount of muscle mass and really changed my body composition (12% gain in body fat) when I could barely walk for such a long period. My metabolism has slowed and now everything I eat... I keep. I am still within the average/healthy range for my height, but I would like to lose about 20-25 lbs to get back to being comfortable with myself. My injury still acts up when I do too much lower body activity and I live where it is too hot to exercise outside this time of year (I hate the gym). I take my dog for three short walks daily, but it is too hot for more than that right now. I would like to start a new diet tomorrow. I want to get as much weight off as possible in the next 10 days because I have a vacation coming up. I previously had success on South Beach, but I don't get the same results anymore. I also had success with the Master Cleanse at one point, but I would like to do something that allows me to eat (even if it is just fruit or soup). I would really love to drop 10-15 lbs (even if it is largely water weight) between now and my trip. Exercise suggestions that don't involve spending hours on a treadmill or in the heat would also be appreciated. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
