Lose Those Last 10 Pounds of Stubborn Weight

“You've cut back on calories, torched them off at the gym, and until now, been handily rewarded with an ever-increasing slide down the scale. Then, bam! You hit a weight-loss wall, and those last few pounds won't budge. You're not the only parent who faces the ‘What do I do with the kids while I exercise?’ problem. And home workouts won't cut it. A recent Australian study found that women who exercised at home were four times more likely to skip sessions than women who worked out at a gym. Nearly 70 percent of gyms now offer supervised child care for only a few bucks extra per month, according to the International Health, Racquet & Sportsclub Association. Find one in your neighborhood. Or sign the kids up for swimming lessons; while they're learning a new crawl, you can slip in a workout.”
