16 Ways to Lose Weight Faster

Fast weight loss tip:

"Most women make the mistake of thinking, If I can't work out for a full hour, why bother?" says Lashaun Dale, co-creator of the REDBOOK/Equinox Body Renewal express class offered in select Equinox gyms this spring. Don't be one of them! Steal one of these genius ideas instead.

"I run to work. It's four miles from my apartment to a gym near my office. The best part is that I don't have to sacrifice precious mornings with my daughter: I shower quicker at the gym, with no distractions, so I leave home at the usual time."

"I recruited a bunch of work friends to join the Wedding Dress Challenge with me. There's a gym in our office building, and at the beginning of the week, we put our classes on a calendar, the way we would any other meetings. Then when it's time to go, we'll just show up at each other's desks with our gear. Some days that accountability is just the extra push you need."

"I use my kids as fitness accessories! I found a mommy-and-me class that my 2-year-old twins love. Since there are two of them, I take my sister with me and we use the kids as weights. It's a workout lifting those babies."

"My husband and I — decided to take the weight-loss challenge together, and we keep each other on track — even when we're away from home. When I don't feel like working out, he'll say, ‘Let's go get it done.' One weekend, we were traveling and didn't have access to a gym. But it didn't matter; we went on long walks together to get the exercise in."

"I schedule workouts a week in advance. My husband and I have so much going on that we've found it's best to talk about how exercise fits into our schedule on Sunday nights, so we can be sure everything is good to go for the week. That way, if I need to get babysitting one day or make some other arrangements so I can get workouts in, I have time to make it happen."

"I realized that time spent hanging out with the family — even in front of the TV — didn't have to be lazy time. I discovered a DVD (Insanity: 60-Day Total Body Conditioning) that my husband and I enjoy doing together, and my son likes to get involved. He's got his jumping jacks down, and he totally wears himself out, which helps with bedtime!"
