Pilates for Weight Lost
Posted: Jan 13, 2009 9:24 AM

I am going to be getting married in Aug 2010. I haven't been happy with my weight since I have had my 2 kids. I used to be at 114 and now I am weighing in at 142 lbs. I would like to be back to my pre baby weight but wouldn't mind being at 120 lbs either. So a few days ago I bought a pilates work out video and hoping it works. I have also been watching what I am eating. Does anyone know if pilates actually works? Or should I ditch the video and try something else?

I have bought a pilates DvD a while ago, and I haven't used it for a year or so. I found it hard for me. I know a couple people who love pilates and they do tone your body. I would go for it. There's no harm in trying. If you find that you don't like it, it's alright, you can move on to the next thing. You can always go back to the pilates later...

Pilates is more for toning and sculpting your muscles after you've lost the weight. I would try Tae Bo workout dvds for the weight loss and then do pilates to get long smooth muscles. That way you look toned but not bulky. Hope that helps :)

I love pilates! I have asthma so I can't do a lot of the big cardio workouts, but pilates and yoga are great. I have a bunch of the Crunch videos for yoga and pilates (I can't remember the specific name, but the red one is my favorite), and I just bought one of the inflatable balls that came with a DVD I'm going to try out when I get a free day.
