    I go out cycling 6 days a week (take Sundays off). The only days I don't go out is if it's pouring with rain. Tried cycling in the rain once; not conducive.

    By the way I am 69 and if I can lose weight, anyone can....no excuses!

    What reason would you have for not being able to lose weight?

    'They' say it's difficult to lose weight the older we get. 'They say'.

    I still do not understand why someone could not lose weight.....please explain!

    Are you demanding an explanation from ... yourself?

    I am not “ demanding” anything...I am asking why anyone could not lose weight?....not a medical case but an every day normal person....I have lost 97 lbs in 17 months and it isn’t easy but it is doable....I think people make up many excuses not to lose weight...I did it for years!

    Cardio every day (though it's mainly long walks, as long as the weather holds up), strength training 5 days a week. That's alternating between lower body and upper body/core with 2 days off.

    I do not workout 7 days a week. I have my rest day but I do plan a light physical activity for the same time I would be exercising. If I do something 7 days a week then mentally it feels like a streak and I am very streak driven. Satisfying the streak is my backup plan for discipline. There might have been a time that having a backup plan would have offended my get and stay motivated - willpower is enough mindset nonsense but I am a little older and wiser now. Plus that mindset never got the adherence or the results.

    I apologize for the snarky tone in my original response. At first glance it appeared that you were replying to your own comment ... as if someone were actually saying, "I am not able to lose weight." It seemed out of place when you consider that an entire community of people here on MFP are loudly proclaiming that we CAN lose weight.

    In response to your question, I think that many people "can't" lose weight in the same way that a thief "can't" find a cop.

    Agreed....my doctor said it is amazing how many patients tell him they don’t know why they don’t lose weight because they don’t eat a thing!....well, I have news for you lol...I gained weight because I ate too much!....if you eat less you are going to lose weight...

    No need to apologize, it’s all good!

    I rarely take a day off. Strength training 4-5 days a week and some form of cardio usually 7 days a week. Sometimes that cardio is taking the dogs for a walk, a hike (nice calorie burn but wears me and the dogs out), or a combination of a dog walk and gym cardio (treadmill, summit climber, rower, and arc trainer)

    I do. I run and average of 1.5 miles a day, then 30 minutes of weight lifting before work on weekdays, then usually a 3 mile run and an hour of weight lifting on weekends. I will skip either the run or the lifting depending on how my body is feeling

    Yes bro even when I need a full rest day it's hard for me to manage. I usually just end up eating until I can't move because I don't know what else to do with myself.

    I go running three times per week, followed by weights. Two further days I do weights. I always have one day off per week, sometimes two.
  • gradchica27gradchica27 Member Posts: 729 Member Member Posts: 729 Member
    I do something every day, or probably 28/30 days. But it’s not hitting it hard every day. I will either walk 4-7 miles or bike an hour every day, lift weights 5-6 days a week.

    All I do right now is row an average of 5km everyday on my C2 Rower.

    No more lifting, walking/hiking, nada else. It's working for now.
