  • I'm not losing either but it's my intention to keep exercising. As long as there's no gaining....i'm okay with it. - 11/18/2014 2:14:37 PM
  • I am not losing weight anymore either. I have that last 15 lbs. to get off. HELP!!!!!!!!! - 11/1/2014 9:16:39 PM
  • A good tip for beginners. I have pretty much eliminated all beverages other than water, coffee and iced tea (no milk or sugar) and walk between 4-5 miles a day. I am not losing weight anymore. I am within 10 pounds of my goal weight and have been here for ages. - 10/7/2014 4:54:37 PM
  • Although this is a good tip, it does not work for everyone. I have changed out all drinks to water and workout at a minum of 30 minutes per day. In addition, I limit between meal snack to something healthy. Unfortunately, even doing this, I have not been able to loose any weight. Even though I am not loosing weight at this time, my clothes are much looser due to the exercising. Even if I am not loosing weight, I will not go back to drinking calories as I like water much better. - 9/26/2014 8:16:30 PM
  • It works for me. When I do my 10 mins a day and only drink water I DO lose 1 # a week !! (but I don't do it everyday like I should) : ( - 9/25/2014 3:07:42 PM
  • Of course if you already exercise an hour a day and don't drink soda, this won't work for you.

    But if you are mostly sedentary (and come on, any advice telling people to walk 10 minutes a day is obviously aimed at someone who is sedentary) and you do drink sugary drinks (say a 20 oz per day, which is 240 calories, after seven days you've consumed almost 1700 calories which is half a pound) - this *does* work. I should know. Cutting out sugary soda and exercise 15 minutes a day is what I've changed so far. I've lost 20 pounds over 4 months, so about a pound a week is right. Sometimes baby steps help. After all, it's about making changes you can live with the rest of your life. - 9/25/2014 11:45:06 AM
  • For people JUST STARTING--this WILL make a difference. If you have been working out and staying away from empty liquid calories, not so much. BUT--it gives hope to the newbies so let it be! - 9/25/2014 11:38:37 AM
  • FYI to you critics, if it doesn't apply to you,don't do it! It's not like it took you 5 minutes to decide! - 9/25/2014 10:29:54 AM
  • This advice must be for someone just starting out and at a VERY heavy weight at that. This video should be listed as "first steps"
    All the folks who are not newbies to this site should know that. Don't be haters. But as a suggestion to SP - maybe you should start rating some of the videos in segments: Beginner, Novice, Experienced, Wannabe Athlete, etc... - 9/25/2014 10:23:39 AM
  • Oh if were really only that easy! - 9/25/2014 9:36:07 AM
  • Boooo SP! Thought you guys were better than this. There are millions of misleading articles on how to lose weight "easily" which are discouraging to millions of people.

    If you knew how many of us are rolling our eyes at this, you'd pull it...immediately. - 9/25/2014 7:53:58 AM
  • No, It is definitely not that easy. I follow Dr Furhmans methods. it works for me. I do add a little oil to my cooking. Workout every day. in spite of that it is hard. So just cutting out sugary drinks and walking 10 minutes wont work. - 9/25/2014 12:39:21 AM
  • well I do know this when I switch up my routine from walk away the pounds by Lesley sansone , and started doing the 10 minute revelatonwellinss by Alise Keeton . I stared seeing a difference soon and I did cut out the sodas in cluding the diet soft drink, sweet teas . I started drinking unsweeted tea, and stay at 1200 calories per day. I went from a size 22 in women to a 15 in juniors now . - 9/22/2014 12:29:59 AM
  • I think you are all right. But if you have been on an exercise plan and stopped loosing weights, mix up your routine, or add intensity. - 9/10/2014 6:36:13 PM
  • Just read an article stating that to lose weight, a person needs to do 250 minutes of moderate intensity exercise per week. This was either in a recent SparkPeople article, or in Medscape, a professional health care website. 10 minutes a day is just a toe in the water. Unfortunately. - 9/7/2014 9:29:41 PM
