size loss v. weight loss
Hi all, I'm a newbie here, from the UK and have a question.
Five years ago, I was slim and toned. It happened by 'accident'; I was walking a 10 mile hike once a week for the previous year and the muscles just got toned! Then life got in the way and I stopped the hike. Instead, I spent much of the day sitting at my computer and/or in the car drriving to appointments, where I sat down (at the appointment) for most of the day. The result? I now have a roll of fat over my abdomen and my hips have spread somewhat.
However, I havent actually put on much weight - 8-10lbs maybe. So now to the question:
How do I lose size without losing much weight?
I have returned to the walking (not employed any more), but it doesnt seem to be doing much (8 months in and still with a roll of fat), and I do lots of heavy-ish work around my home and garden/yard (digging, plastering, pointing walls, lifting boxes, etc). Is there anything else I can do to get rid of the fat roll without going on a diet to lose weight?
