The ups and downs of losing weight

If you're trying to lose weight, you know there are ups and downs. Mary Ward "Wubbie" Hendrix is a 27-year old Atlanta area school teacher who is trying to lose 60 pounds. We've been following her journey since October. At her last weigh-in with her personal trainer, Mike Granatelli, she was unpleasantly surprised by what she saw: She had gained four pounds.

But Granatelli is encouraging. "The good news is you're still down eight [since October]," he said. Hendrix, however, is frustrated. "I feel like I work out really hard, and I'm gaining weight," Hendrix said. Granatelli, in turn, assured her that everybody goes through these ups and downs. "Everyone loses, everyone gains again, so you just have to keep progressing," he explained.

Only time for one stretch? Make it this one

If you're doing any kind of exercising in this new year, listen up! HLN's Robin Meade was in the gym with Chris Powell, fitness trainer and host of TV's "Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition," and she got the skinny on warming up before you start exercising and stretching afterward.  

Chris says many people skip the warm-up before exercising and immediately start lifting heavy weights, which ultimately leads to injuries. He says what you want to do is get the blood flowing and everything moving before you start, and you can do that through simple movements, such as jogging or just walking in place.
