This Week's "Ask Gilad" Blog

Gilad:

Hi Gilad! You look great! I started working out to your show "Bodies in Motion" around 25 years ago. I have several of your tapes and DVDs and still workout with you. My weight has fluctuated throughout my life but I recently lost 42 lbs through diet and exercise and was looking pretty lean and toned last summer, especially for my 53rd birthday right around the corner. I was rear ended the end of July and because of neck pain I couldn't do any vigorous workouts for several months.

That, plus other stressful events in my life which have slowly pushed me into comfort eating once again, and I have gained 10 lbs back since my accident. I can't seem to find my motivation again and am scared and saddened to find myself moving back up the scale, as I worked so hard to get into shape. From what I have observed, you have never been out of shape in your life, but do you have any suggestions? I truly admire you!
Sincerely,

Sharyl R.

 
Answer:

Aloha Sharyl,
Sounds like you are ready to get back into your top shape.
You say that you lost a total of 42 pounds and now have gained 10 back. Your situation is not bad!
All you have to do is start up again slowly and at your own pace!
Often when we let go of our fitness program for a period of time for whatever reason, we find it hard to get back into it because all we remember is how it felt when we are at full swing. From where you are right now that might seem like to big a  challenge.
So, go back to the basics! do only what you can easily and comfortably do and take it one workout at a time!
Remember, for where you are now consistency is more important then intensity!
If you follow this plan I believe you will lose the extra 10 pounds in no time!
