I am 21 yrs, 5’7″ and 150lbs. My weight is distributed evenly (well my bust has more than it needs but why complain), and I like the shape of my body so its always been hard for me to stick to exercise, although what I want is to slim down some so I can really be proud of my figure. I would like it to happen by summer (couple months away) so I’m bikini ready. I’d like to be 130-135 lbs by then and I just bought a weighted jump rope I’m really excited to use. Given the right diet circumstance, is it possible for me to lose that much weight by summer? How much should I jump rope to even get close? Comments welcomed thank you!
hello, I am happy to have bumped into this article. Im 5 2 1/2, 38 yrs old 155lb, post menopause and struggling with a screeching halt in losing weight. I started jumping rope in grade school and loved it. Just recently I remembered how fast I lost weight jumping rope when I was fighting muay thai style kickboxing 12years ago. I am determined to drop these 30lb that have just creeped up on me over the last two years. I am 4months post foot surgery and I do a bootcamp style workout 2-3 times a week. I watch my calorie intake closely and eat whole foods, fish 3 times a week, chicken and I try a new vegetable every week. I weigh in weekly and I’m down 3lbs from last weeks weigh in. I have always learned the slower you lose the weight the longer it will stay off. I Dont diet but i choose a healthy eating lifestyle. I do slip(after all i am human) but i just jump right back into my healthy eating pattern. All of the Articles I have read Inspire me to reach my goal. BTW I had just finished working out for a short 20min workout, a very fast paced jump rope session with some muay thai kicks and punches and ab work for a nice sweat dripping cardio session. Thanks for the motivation, I wish everyone the best for the weight loss goals.
