How can I lose 10 inches off my waist?

I’m 5’4 and 180lbs, I exercise every now and then but am not as active as I used to be. How can I lose 10 inches off my waist in around 10 weeks…is that possible? I would like my waist to be at 30in and hips at 33or 35in.

Answer #1

Yes I must agree with you determinedmom, walking is the best, easiest way to lose the inches.

I work out at least 5 days per wk. 20-25 min cardio, circuit weight train each day on different muscle groups, at first I went on a prejudice diet!

That’s an all brown diet! lol

Brown rice, brown bread, brown/black beans, chicken with vegetables raw and cooked any way, lots of water.

I’ve learned to snack more low calorie style, Popsicles under 40 calories, yogurt ice cream.

Don’t cut everything out cause you will revert back to your old eating habits.

From going all the clean eating strategies the best is low calorie.

Find out how many calories you should be eating for your age, weight, and height.

Everyone is different so you have to try stuff and see what works for your lifestyle and body type. Working out with partners, neighbor, kids, co-workers helps a lot too.

Uhhh 800 calories per day is VERY unhealthy! You can only do it for so long and they you crash and possible make yourself ill from not having the proper nutrients.

Good luck to you all, on day at a time

I lost 5 1/2 inches off my abdomen using just one Ultimate Body Slimming Applicator. It is an affordable at home, site specific body wrap that only take 45 minutes to achieve inch loss from any area that you choose, such as your abdomen, back, thighs, love handle, arms and neck. After using the 45 minute body wrap, you continue to lose inches over the next 72 hours and your inch loss will last 2 to 6 months if you maintain your body weight. This is not a water loss body wrap and works by detoxifying and your fat cell. You have the same number of fat cells in your body throughout your life. What changes is the size of those fat cells depending on the accumulate of the fat inside each cell. The natural, herbal based formula penetrates the fat cell wall and releases the accumulated subcutaneous fat inside the cell through osmosis action. That fat is liquefied by the herb and is circulated to the lymphatic system and is excreted from the body through your natural elimination process. If you would like more information, check out

Answer #6

You can loose best by cutting out junk food, sodas, caffine, cut back on breads and pastas. Also drink at least 64 oz. water daily. Eat six times a day 3 meals and 3 snacks to keep metabolism up. Space eating times at least 2 hours apart, and try to finish eating for the day before 6:00 PM. Walking is the best exercise!!! I have followed this plan for two weeks now and have lost 4 inches all over my body with 5 inches off my waist! I walk one mile each evening, and carry hand weights 3 times a week when I walk. Walk briskly, but you should be able to still carry on a conversation while walking.

Answer #7

hello I was just going through here and thought I would comment here. I’ve been if the army for a few years now and boarder line and sometimes have to loss weight quick. Deffinitly anything thats carbinated will add a lot of weight. dont laugh but I went on the colon cleanser that you can find at walmart. it help a bit. And the the best type of in house exercizing is my exercize wheel. It works everything. If you do around 30 a night then you will see a big difference. Hope it works out for you. thanks

Answer #8

three words. special. k. diet. it really works! especially if you’re strict with it. but just living off cereal for a while won’t do the trick. you must exercise too!!! its completely necessary. not that you have to do a fast paced intense workout routine. cardio is the best thing you can possibly do. even if your heart rate is up just a little. get that blood pumping. I lost about 5 inches in one month. just gotta be patient.

Answer #9

Answer #16

for you guys who say kids shouldnt worry about there weight they should because most of the world is filled with over weight kids do you want to see them die annd19.8 million kids die in the us every year because of it

Answer #17

You know everything comes with determination. You don’t need to sit here and come up with this drastic diet and stop enjoying everything to lose weight. It’s all about your proportions. Yes, you should do some type of excersising everyday and challenge yourself. Today I’m going to run for 20 minutes tomorrow I’m going to shoot for 25 minutes. But again you don’t need to stop eating or go down to 800 freaking caleries a day. That’s crazy! And for the children that are on here. Firstly, you need to enjoy being kid. Second, at your age it’s incredibly dangerous. My advice is to lay off of some of the junk junk foods. Not stop eating it, but instead of just grabbing the whole bag of chips go get a cup and get a hand full. It’s all about proportions and also it has a lot to do with just eating because your bored or for entertainment. Don’t give up go gradual and work your way up, but certainly don’t make your life miserable and don’t give it all up.

Answer #18

first of all, losing weight is the hardest thing especially when you don’t want to starve yourself or don’t like to eat healthy. I am struggling with losing weight myself, and I’ll have to say losing weight is not just something you would do only for 2 months, it’s a life time commitments. first off,do not count calories, but watch for the portions. eat small meals and only three times a day, don’t snack if you don’t have to. also exercise is the main thing here, run as much as the can but don’t overdue it. Don’t run three hours can run two to three hours, but tomorrow let your body relax. it’s best to run one hr and then do one hr of yoga or pilates five times a week. if you do this and eat as little as you possibly can, you will see your results. people may say why you eat so little, so what, if that’s what it takes to lose couple of pounds and feel better then go for it.I did it and I felt great as long as you are not starving last note: after you get to the weight you like, treat yourself to a fast food you like.

Answer #19

There is a website. once you get to the web page look on the left hand side and click on cardiac diet menu. The full menu will come up its calle the three day diet you will lose up to ten pounds in three days and four the next four you can eat what you want but dont over do it. Dont worry its nothing crazy and it wont hurt you, they use it in the hospitals to help obese people lose weight faster when they have to get surgery. I use it and it has worked for me. Good luck to whoever tries it
