I saved him from a life of frozen pizza and take out, he should be grateful. Trying to cook for a family where one kid only eats meats and produce, the other won't eat anything but carbs and him they are lucky I still cook Smile

HEHEHE!!! mrspackrat....sounds like we have the same household....but seeing as I am the cook of the house...I'm usually making two different meals cause the hubby is also a VERY picky eater. Won't try something new...no casseroles...vegies consist of corn and broccoli and if we have a salad he has only iceberg lettuce with salt no dressing...or he will eat carrots and radishes in his salad only. I wish he would at least try something different cause we do have a little one (6y/o) whom is following in his footsteps. I try to get her to try something and she sees daddy saying no way and she does the same. *sigh*

Its frustrating...at least for me...being in my late 40's I would of thought the kitchen duties of cooking would of gotten a little bit smoother but that is not so. LOL I think they think its a restaurant...might need to take my "KITCHEN IS CLOSED" sign out again. LOL

I looked up the calorie burn for circuit training at some point - as this is what I do for my muscle building.

If you train in the way that you work until exhaustion in ALL exercises in the sllowed time (depending what kind of workouts you do), then you burn something like 8 calories per kilo body weight per hour. This is if you work out hard, sweat jumping from your forehead, pulse up high, and you not being able to carry any kind of conversation while working out, and with no breaks. So you'd be burning about 500 calories per session.
However, I'm assuming this is not the way you work out, given your condition. I'm assuming you're probably haft of that, which is fine for general exercise. Don't get me wrong.

My point is that circuit training, as good as it is for your body and for building some muscle, really doesn't burn a whole lot of fat, unless you REALLY put effort into it. Let's say you DO work out full blast. Then you'd lose something like 2 ounces of fat during that workout. If you only go have the burn, then one ounce.

I feel that the workouts are great for building and tonining your body, but actual fat loss is MUCH easier accomplished in calorie restriction.

It's good to see that you DO work out, though.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

Thanks kingfield and NO my workouts are not like that but I can tell you they are intense. One of my routines is 20 minutes of burpees with no rest, hell I still struggle with that one but it is a mix of weights, some interval cardio mixed in enough to get your heart pumping. I figured it's about 200 calories each workout that I can add my my activity. That still does not make up for the huge deficit I should have been generating in order to see 1-2 lbs of loss a week but it's happening so I guess I shouldn't complain.

too upset with my weight
Fat doesn't turn into muscle. Fat and muscle are different. Are you drinking enough water? Try increasing your water, it will fill you up. Good luck! Jen
