I voted to lose the weight for you, and him, your health and your husband are both important to you, right? hey you might even inspire him to get off his ass
. sorry to be harsh, but @ 5'3", 160 is too heavy, even 140 is a little chunky. Now dont get me wrong, whats inside is important too, its not just about looks, but most women will look much better, thinner. my wife is a PT cert. trainer, and has a diet cert aswell, we both know alot about fitness & nutrition, and our bodies show it. trust me when I tell you that exercise is only about 30% of the equation, you NEED to change your diet and permanently! Do these things and you WILL get results.
- Cut out all deserts, chips, cakes, ice cream, crakers etc. even that low fat, whole grain BS , dried fruit is also very bad (loaded w/ sugar!) snack on fresh,LOW SUGAR content fruits, and all natural FF yogurt. all natural p-nut butter is OK in moderation.
-eat B-fast as soon as you wake up to keep your blood sugar in check and prevent fat storage.
- cut down on the amount of food you eat during meals ,just eat enough to feel moderately full ,then go do something to get your mind off food
- raise your protein intake, fish, lean chicken
-CUT YOUR CARBS!, NO potatos, white rice, and for gods sake, no bread or pasta of any kind, ever!!!!! try brown rice or quinoa instead and stick to the serving size.
-Use salsa , NOT KATSUP(high in sugar), use mustard(dijon) NOT MAYO, and no creamy dressings, use vinegar and Olive oil.
- Do some cardiovascular exercise within 2 hours before your biggest meal of the day.
-COOK! DONT EAT OUT!...and if you do, stick w/ steamed chinese
do all that, and then go work those buns and abs!
