Hello again, need advice

Elise Freda


Hello again. In my previous post I shared my success story in losing weight. I am still on my diet and attending dance classes. And today I am here to ask for advice. The parts o my body where I’ve lost few pounds look loose now. I would like to change it and make them stronger and fit. I bought a DVD with set of different types of exercises. I repeat them every day during two weeks but no changes at all. I can’t understand what I do wrong that my muscles are still soft and week.

I was thinking of buying dumbbells and use them at home. But I have no idea how to do it properly as I am scared to build a really big body. This is what I wouldn’t like at all. I hope that I can explain what I want to a good extend. I just want to look fit and slim. I read that for making definition I don’t need to lift heavy weight it is enough to have 1-2 pound dumbbell. Would you agree with it?

According to food I have found out that for building muscles I should eat protein. I include beans, tuna, few bananas a day and cottage cheese. And I drink 2 sometimes 3 bottles of water every day. I even consider to get protein cocktails but I am not sure how to drink it and If it is a good idea at all.

What would you recommend me to eat I mean some specific products for bigger muscles or maybe someone knows a special diet for losing weight and gaining muscle mass at the same time?

Thanks guys

Hey Elise. How big are the bottles of water you are drinking? You should really get half of your body weight in ounces of water a day. So if you weight 140, you should drink 70 ounces. Make sure you are drinking enough. If you can afford it, you might want to join a gym and work with a personal trainer for at least a few sessions. He or she can help you with exercises that will help tone you up but not bulk you up.

There is an App called...gymwizz.  It has a resistence program and a cardio.  It even shows you how to lift weights correctly.  The App is free for the first several weeks.  After that time frame, I would delete the App and then add it back on my phone.  Good form is very important.  Good luck.  Keep up the good work.  Small changes make a big difference in the long run.
