Are you getting your heart rate up to a fat burning range? Maybe you should increase your pace/intensity.

Don't be too hard on yourself. 2 months is not a long time- and you should be positive in that by now you've developed a healthy habit of regular exercise.

Stay with it, add strength training a couple of times a week- you'll do great!

I hope you mean strength training 3 or 4 times/week, not 3 or 4 times/day!

You might be eating too little causing your metabolism slow down too much. Increase your caloric intake by 20% and see what happens.

Yes, dear that was my question.
I agree with others answers, as well.
Irony is that, I did track well.
Maybe I will start the treadmill again alternate it WATP(Leslie gets a bit too chatty)
& ST 3/4 times a day
thanks all:)

I would stay with it.. There's a lot of good benefits to using a treadmill, not just for weight loss.

To lose the fat exercise is not the most important. It helps, but it is not as important as tracking what you eat. Just by tracking everything you eat and staying within your daily range you can lose fat even if you do no exercise, but the reverse is not true, i.e. you can exercise as much as you want if you don't track all you eat and stay within your range, you won't lose fat.

So, treadmill is not to blame. It can help you lose the fat, but you need to control your caloric intake.The source of the calories is also important. Stay away from junk food as much as you can.

Not really sure what you are asking...but if it is should you continue with cardio while st, the answer is yes. Now if you question is whether you should use the treadmill as cardio...again yes. Just make sure you are getting your heart rate up in order for it to be cardio.

hello everyone!
I needed some advice!
August thru September I did 30-40 mins a day on the dreadmill(except weekends)
I saw no results, I was very genuine and if I did eat a bit extra on weekend I did extra hours!

But, I am again puzzled what to do or not do?
I just added ST
these are the links(at the end)

Along, with that I want to do cardio.
So is it a good idea to do treadmill/WATP(I have 4 miles)?

thank you
