I am pleased with myself but aggravated also. I have been walking alot & using stairs every chance I get. I am pissed at myself because all this cannot help me lose my belly. I hate exercising. Is there anyway to trim your belly other then to lay on the floor? What is a fast way?

I was having the same problem, then I found this helpful info online. I quickly started seeing results.

1. Start by standing up.
2. Lightly tighten you stomach muscles. (A.) Suck in Your Gut ...Or... (B.) Firm up Your Stomach by Pushing Down, Try Them Both.)
3. Hold them lightly tighten.
4. Then take slow, deep breaths, in and then slowly out, all the while holding your stomach muscles tight. After 7 or 8 breaths you will feel the oblique abdominal muscles begin to be recruited, then the lower and upper abdominal’s being slowly synched tighter ALL without any more effort than the initial light muscle tension. You can do this toning exercise Anywhere !

I know this sounds like exercise but I have a bosu. Its a half ball that doesn't strain or aggrivate my foot problems. It is kind of fun to use and when you do sit ups using it you get a full range of motion. It allows all the muscles of my stomach to be engaged and I have had a c-section and thought I would never get those muscles to work again.

Weight loss stalled
Having 200 calories every 2 hours, for eg; like from 8am to 6pm should shake things up abit and hopefully get the ball rolling again.

High carb- Low protein and HUNGRY all the time???
You usually need to eat (at least) every 3 hours on a High carb diet to stop hunger. I find, with high carb dieting grazing is the best system. While with low carb dieting, a set 3 meals a day works ...

This is a great time to make your own cranwater while they are in season. I get a bag of cranberries for 99 cents here so you are saving bundles; it is however, a little time consuming.
