I cant seem to lose weight

I exercise every day for 1 hour jogging and lifting weights but my belly gets bigger every day I cant fit my 42 jeans anymore how can I make my belly get smaller not bigger

Answer #1

okay try not to eat a lot after you excercise because whats the point of excersising if your going to eat the double of calories you lost and so just try to do more excercises that target the belly and the waist like crunches dances anything

Answer #2

i hope you do not take offense,         To that that comes hereafter;         ’Tis only that it’s my two-cents,         Not one penny more thereafter. §;o)

How to LOSE weight?

First, determine from the information below, what your weight should be. Then set yourself goals of a week, 2 weeks, a month, 3 months, 6 months and a year. As you see yourself meeting your goals it becomes easier. Remember, you didn’t gain your weight overnight so don’t expect to lose if overnight. Plus, weight lost slowly is more likely to stay off than weight lost in a hurry.

If you need conversion info, 1 kg = 2.2 pounds and 2.54 cm = 1 inch (12 inches = 1 foot)

Info if you are trying to LOSE weight:


“How can I Lose 1 pound of body weight per week?”

One pound of body fat is equal to about 3500 calories. So to lose 1 pound of weight per week, you need to eat 500 calories/day LESS than you burn.

But it’s not a good idea to lose weight simply by cutting calories. As well as decreasing calories you should increase your daily physical exercise. This helps to burn calories and build more lean tissue which in turn burns more calories.

“What should a minimum calorie intake be?”

As a guide to minimum calorie intake, the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) recommends that calorie levels never drop below 1200 calories per day for women or 1800 calories per day for men. Even these calorie levels are quite low.

  Another thing that helps to lose weight is to always eat a good breakfast. That helps to jump start your metabolism which helps start burning calories. Also, try to drink 8 eight ounce glasses of water every day. One before every meal (except breakfast) and before all snacks. That helps curb your appetite which helps reduce caloric intake.

Answer #3

size 42 ..well 38 is size 10 so 42 is like a 14?? I do the same as you but a lil more but it does nothing but maintain my size 10/12 ness lol I want to lose weight so im going to push myself more, make sure your eating healthy and drink a lot of water, scisssor kicks are great for building up ab muscle

Answer #4

Along with the exercise did you change your diet? You need to figure out what is a healthy intake of calories for someone your age, height and gender. A lot of times on a nutrition website, they will tell you how many calories you need to maintain your weight and how many calories you need to lose weight. If you are exercising but not changing your diet you might not be limiting the correct amount of calories needed for weight loss. Also, if you are concerned specifically with your belly area, try adding in some abdominal specific exercises into the routine. Results arent immediate though so if in a few days you aren’t seeing pounds just dropping right off dont get frustrated and stop..but I bet in 2 weeks time you are going to see a noticable difference and even in a weeks time feel things becoming a littles less tight. good luck!!!

Answer #5
