walking off weight why am i not losing weight

The problem: Doing the same walk every day
Why it’s a weight loss killer: Whether you’re on the treadmill or outside, failing to mix things up will get tedious in a hurry. But beyond that, your body adapts quickly to whatever you’re doing, says Deazie Gibson, a fitness trainer and AcaciaTV instructor in Houston. How fast? Usually within 2 to 3 months, depending on your fitness level, which means that you’ll burn fewer calories doing that same walk than you once did.

How to fix it: Add variety to your walks. It could be as simple as choosing a new route or terrain or using a weighted vest or walking poles. After 3 months, introduce another new challenge to your body, Gibson says.

The problem: Having a weak core
Why it’s a weight loss killer: Strong abs aren’t just about vanity. A soft midsection can make it hard to walk faster: “Weak abs can cause poor posture, which rounds the shoulders and compresses the lungs,” says Kristin McGee, New York City–based yoga and Pilates expert and AcaciaTV instructor. That will make it tough to breathe deeply and can even strain valuable walking muscles like the hip flexors and hamstrings. Not only will you tire faster, but you also risk injury.

How to fix it: Although you can—and should—work on strengthening that core with specific exercises (like these four core moves), you can also think about balancing a book on your head as you walk and focus on keeping your core engaged.
